Grimm "The Grimm Identity" Review - AVClub

AVClub: The decision to kill off a character on a television show is one that’s made for a variety of reasons—a contract runs out, the narrative dictates they’ve reached the end of their story, the producers want to stir up some interest amongst the audience. And while there’s never any end of conversation when those deaths happen (case in point, last week’s The Walking Dead) the more important part of that decision is how it affects the remaining members of the cast. Deaths that people move away from easily are the deaths that feel like lazy writing or immediate shock effect. The best shows are the ones that understand death is something that needs to be processed, and that loss triggers a multitude of reactions that aren’t altogether pleasant to go through.

The story is too old to be commented.
