Hemlock Grove is an eccentric Netflix original TV show that follows the lives of two young men who decide to team up and solve a teenage girls murder. However, there’s more to this story. One of the guys is a werewolf and the other, well you’ll have to watch it to find out what he is exactly – it takes a while. Starring Bill Skarsgard, Landon Liboiron, Famke Janssen and Dougray Scott. There are 3 seasons of this show and the third season was its last. The show is based on the book by Brian McGreevy and it’s created by Eli Roth, director of Hostel.I started watching this show just before season 2 arrived on Netflix. I binged watched the first season and I absolutely loved it and I invested myself into these bizarre characters. I found it really entertaining. When the second season came out it didn’t take me long to watch that one either and I really enjoyed it. I thought the transition from season 1 into season 2 was done well. The show changed enough but not too much and I liked it.
However, the third season came out a couple of weeks ago and I have to say I didn’t really enjoy it. The direction they took Roman in especially displeased me. For me the third season ruined it for me. It felt really dragged out and I hated the fact that they made Roman into a killer, even though he was one but he just would never have killed a friend in the previous seasons. I’m really annoyed that he died and Peter lived. Roman was always my favourite. One thing I am happy about is that Peter didn’t get to look after the baby in the end. It was Shelley that drove off with her. That’s the only part I liked about the series finale episode.
I did really love this show but I’m glad it’s finished because if they’d have done a fourth season I’d have been scared as to where they were going to take it after season 3.
