The Grimm Adventures of Steampunk Addie

Keeping Momma entertained while she recovers from surgery just got a whole lot easier once we discovered Grimm, a television show just starting its second season.

Homicide Detective Nick Burkhardt of the Portland Police Bureau learns he is descended from a line of guardians known as "Grimms," charged with keeping balance between humanity and the "Wesen," mythological creatures of the world.

Throughout the episodes, Burkhardt must battle against an assortment of dangerous creatures, with help from his friend Monroe (who is a reformed Big Bad Wolf) and his partner Detective Hank Griffin.

Early in season one, Burkhardt's Aunt Marie (also a Grimm) entrusts him with a previously unknown silver Airstream trailer containing all the tools of their Grimm trade: books (graphic "fairy tales"), weapons, and poisons.

Burkhardt's friend Monroe drives a Volkwagon Beetle. His is yellow with a roof, but I won't be picky about that detail.

Momma (and I) have always loved VW Bugs and Airstreams.

Know we know why.
