Didn't read the thread for fear of spoilers. Is this a worthy show?

I find many horror fans kinda picky so it is hard to say whether someone will like the series or not. If you already have Netflix WI you can check it out. It up to par or better than many cable network series.

I had no idea Eli Roth was behind this show. It kind of changed my perspective on it.

Still, the first season, had some of the worst dialogue I've ever heard. They toned it down quite a bit for season 2, but there were still hints of that stupid dialogue. I would say it's an improvement over season 1.

The ending was quite a trip, too.

Finally had some time last night to begin Season 2 .. I thought the recap they did on Season 1 was pretty good .. it did not take long to get back up to speed .. 3 episodes in and it's all good so far .. I did not realize Gypsy funerals/wakes were as shown ..

Spent the week binging the first 2 seasons.
Excellent series.


A wild and real WTF Season 2 ending episode.
The pterodactyl freak was NOT expected.
It was obvious during the 8th show it was going to be either Olivia or Norman getting the axe.
Poor, poor Shelly...


The third and final season should be here soon.

Started on S3.
Just finished the first 3 episodes and this season is easily shaping up to be the best yet.
Now that it is hitting on all cylinders, it's a shame this will be the last season of the series.

What I am really enjoying is watching the main characters involved in intricate little subplots of their own and yet each are obviously connected to a whole.
It makes for fascinating (and addicting) viewing IMO.

Watched the finale last night.
I thought it ended pretty well.

No question the last season really knocked it out of the park.
The first 2 were good and were focused on the characters and less on the story.
But in the 3rd, the showrunners reversed the optics and the show was better for it.

Goodbye Hemlock Grove...thanx for the memories.
