Last night Elizabeth and I caught the pilot of NBC's new series "Grimm" (think "Buffy" meets "CSI"). We enjoyed it quite a lot, and it may just have real legs. One fun moment came when our heroes went into "Berkeley Park," identifying it by name and showing a glimpse of the actual Berkeley Park sign. "Hey, they're near our old house!" we exclaimed, the park being three blocks from our former address. Then our intrepid monster-finders entered the park and the scene cuts to deep, dark fairy-tale woods stretching for miles.
"My, the city has really let the place go," we observed of the erstwhile ball field.
