On the whole, I enjoyed the first two seasons of Netflix’s Hemlock Grove, but with caveats: the biggest being that it was at times hard to identity the creatures that were involved–and when your series is about monsters, human and otherwise, this is not a minor thing.
For instance, what the hell was Olivia Godfrey (Famke Janssen)? Her son was apparently a vampire, though she was something other. And now that I am speculating, what was it with Dr. Johann Price (Joel de la Fuente)? I recall he had some sort of disorder that increased his strength (or he couldn’t feel pain, something like that) but he seemed creepy-strong and way too in-tune with all the weirdness that was going on around him.
And that lizard-thing at the end of the second season? It was cool in the sense that it was totally unexpected, though I couldn’t make heads or tales why it was.
Though the werewolves? And The Company Of Wolves-style transformation? That I liked.
