Anyone else watch Grimm? My son (who is 14) and I have watched the show since the beginning, and we were watching together again tonight. For those who don't watch, in brief, there's a supernatural-type baddie every week and good guys who have to figure out what's going on. It started out loosely based on Grimm's Fairy Tales, but has branched out into all sort of myths, legends, tall tales, and scary tales from other cultures.

This week's tale was based on a mermaid-like creature, and there was this poor sap that met these girls at the beach, and then his friend got dragged underwater and drowned.

From the mouth of babes, again


And then later, he got waylaid by these two dudes and konked over the head with a pipe. And I said to my son, "Man, this dude is having a bad week. Let this be a lesson to you ... no good comes of picking strange girls up at the beach and making out with them." (Of course, I was being a smart ass and joking with him)

My son looks at me and said, "I'd never do that. I figure I'll just do like when dad met you and pick them up in a bar. But don't worry, I'll be classy about it."

Ouch.
