User Reviews

Weak plot; badly written
21 April 2013 | by mkaine-665-661650See all my reviews

While the visuals in this show are decent, the acting, writing and formulation of the plot are incredibly weak.

Much of script is awkwardly delivered by actors who seem positively amateurish. Halting deliveries reminiscent of a high school production absolutely kill the mood of the show. The actors aren't helped by the quality of the script itself, which is rife with generalizations and stereotypes that can sometimes be offensive. Where the script isn't mildly offensive, it's just badly written. In particular, the teenage characters are given lines that make them seem much older than they are; these characters are sometimes not believable as young people. The plot itself is equally weak. The purpose of some characters in the plot is entirely unclear. Neither building suspense, nor contributing relevant material, they just seem to take up space. In addition, characters often jump to conclusions about important plot points without an adequate demonstration of the logic behind said conclusions.

Hemlock Grove is a series that, to my understanding, had a budget of $43 million. The aspect of the show that warrants such a high budget is the visual.The costumes are all good, the props are very nice and the quality of the picture itself is also very good. Viewers may perhaps enjoy the show more by putting it on mute and just checking out the scenery of the show, as most of the plot and dialog is irredeemably difficult to hear. Many of the show's faults are similar, in my opinion to Netflix's previous original series, Lillehammer, which is equally bad. For their money, Netflix has gotten much less than could easily have been expected.
