I started watching to see Famke (although I don't find her character that interesting), but often found the need to FF skip-jump past some of the less-interesting sections in both seasons. If I later realized that I skipped past something important, I just went back to watch a few of the important scenes, so that I understood what was going on.
Even though it's my least favourite Netflix series, I still enjoyed watching it, and it's also the ONLY Netflix series that I binge-watched each season (10 and 13 episodes respectively) of, within a week of each release. Currently, I've only finished watching S1 of House of Cards
and S1 of Orange is the New Black
, but I still managed to finish both seasons of Hemlock Grove
before I finished those other series (sure, the FF skip-jumping allowed me to finish the series faster, but I did go back many times to watch what I initially skipped past, as well as re-watching many of the more interesting scenes).
I like the cool-looking transformation scenes in Hemlock Grove
, and the apparent need for nudity reminds me of True Blood
. There's a whole lot of crazy going on in Hemlock Grove, but I certainly liked a lot of it.
I also noticed that a portion of Hemlock Grove
's season 2 finale is the same as a scene from a Spartacus episode [Starz tv series], yet another series filled with blood and nudity.
If there's a third season, I will watch it ... and most likely will finish it all within a week.
