Captain Kidd Font Featured in NBC’s Grimm

Tonight, while I was watching NBC’s new show Grimm with the kids, I was pleasantly surprised by the appearance of our Captain Kidd font at the opening of the first commercial break, spelling out the word “Grimm” in the middle of the screen. It’s the first time the name of the show appears on screen during the broadcast, but it’s a pretty brief appearance. The sad part is that it’s also the last time the font appears in the show.

I suspect that as often happens, although the original production company had the good taste to pick Captain Kidd as the title font for the show, the network or someone higher up the chain of command decided to make a change before it finally made it on the air. Instead of Captain Kidd the website and promotional screens feature a more modern looking font. It’s not bad looking, but sure doesn’t have as much character as Captain Kidd does.

As for the show itself, it’s not bad. It’s darker and more original than ABC’s Once Upon a Time which also premiered this week. Think of it as a traditional cop show with monsters thrown in. The first episode was a bit sketchy as it had to get some backstory out, but it was still pretty enjoyable.
