    I've got that down to watch this weekend when I get some time. It sounds a bit like the "Dresden Files" to me, but taken to an extreme where magic is commonplace and technology isn't.

    DAMNIT! Too slow. Matt, did you get a copy or anyone know where else it can be seen?

    Gone already. :(

    I was REALLY looking forward to this show and was highly disappointed when it didn't get picked up.

    I did not think to save it, though I'm sure it will show up as a torrent shortly.

    I DEFINITELY think it's worth a watch. I'm not surprised the network did not pick it up, as it's a very "risky" show. I'm sure it's expensive too. Still, it would have been great to see it get 12 episodes or something. Maybe it will find a home on one of the smaller channels.

    I managed to watch it shortly after Matt started this thread, and it's a * shame it was not picked up.
    Great cast, storyline looked interesting and I loved the fact that magic was in use and science was not.
    Plus really cool effects especially with the crime scene stuff:thumbsup

    Unfortunately, I didn't see it, but did read some articles. Why did NBC pick up Grimm instead of this?

    Cost. 17th Precinct, from what I have read, would have a lot higher production cost. You'd have to 'replace' technology with magic in every scene shot, and I imagine that'd put it's prop/CGI/set dressing budget pretty high. From what I've seen of Grimm, they occasionally have to do some CGI work over people's faces.

    Isn't that always the reason. Isn't SyFy a sister network? Ratings would have been better there, so advertising monies could be had. Oh well, another loss for the fans.
