Not conforming to any of the standard fantasy / horror formulae, Hemlock Grove is a splendid mishmash of themes and mythologies with teen vampire types, werewolves (most definitely not given the soppy Twilight or the Scooby-gang Buffy treatment), shady police (but not in the procedural Grimm manner), shadier secret societies (without the Dan Brown pseudo-mysticism) and, of course, a mad genius scientist or two (without going all Walter Bishop on us). Throw in a bucketful of languid atmosphere, soak liberally in gore and sprinkle a dusting of light wit and you have Hemlock Grove.
Season two picks up some time after Season one’s cataclysmic finale; Roman and Peter have gone their separate ways, poor Shelly is missing, Dr Chasseur’s brother is now sheriff, the now financially independent Norman is seeking to avenge the death of his wife and daughter, Olivia is still Olivia and the Bishop’s illuminate sect is up to something. Enter a mysterious girl conveniently stranded in the Grove, Roman’s Alia-like baby daughter, an Eastern European doctor at the institute equally as mad as the splendid Dr. Johann Pryce, a string of murders and prescient shared dreams. The only thing missing is Roman’s beautiful car from Season one, replaced by an anonymous Mercedes or something – shame.Read more ›
After Peter starts having dreams about masked murderers killing children in manners that appear to be accidents, he returns to Hemlock Grove to discover Roman has been having the same night visions, but with the enmity of the first season's events still hissing between them, neither is willing to help the other's investigations into what that may mean. When an injured girl named Miranda comes knocking at Roman's door in the middle of the night after being mysteriously pursued and run off the road, events take an even stranger turn for the erstwhile pair of friends. Meanwhile Dr. Pryce's experiments into the de novo creation of life start bearing fruit in his secret laboratory beneath the Godfrey research centre.
This season sees the show doing away with the first season's love of having strange scenes which are there just so the show has scenes that are strange, and instead concentrates on the story - and it pulls off a very satisfying concluding episode that neatly ties together all the plot strands.
Yes, it swaps one blonde girl in a love triangle for another blonde girl in a love triangle and it's a little sad to see the dark, moody atmosphere of the first series become a little lighter, but those are a small price to pay for having a season that makes sense and gels together in a way the first one didn't quite do. Certainly, it was good enough to get the show a third season when - for a while - a second season looked unlikely.
Unlike the first season, the second contains no special features on the DVD.
It really annoys me that Blu-Rays and DVDs have fewer or no extra viewing on them these days. I like owning the physical product, but I also feel that to be worth the money there should be extras like “the making of” and “Cast Interviews”. In this case all we get are 3 trailers, all of which I have seen on line.
For the price I paid for this Blu-Ray I could have used to fund several months of my Netflix subscription. After all, I get no extras on that, but for the price I pay I am not too bothered.
Also, since Hemlock Grove season 2 has been on Netflix from last spring, £25 for two discs and no bonus material is an absolute joke.
Why don’t Amazon ever list the extras that accompany a disc? It would save my annoyance.
On to the series review. 4 stars. Along with what a lot of other reviews have said. Yes it wasn’t quite as good as the first season, but it was still very watchable. I am very much looking forward to the third and final season.
Edited: I just purchased the AUS release of this season on eBay which should definitely be preferred. For example, the AUS version of episode 1 is 51:14 as opposed to the UK version which is 43:05 - almost 20% longer. Also the AUS release includes English subtitles.
"To little girls who grow up to be beautiful women."
"To silver-tongued men with sweet, dangerous smiles." (this reply to the toast was cut in the UK release)
It is so sad that some studios are not committed to quality and excellence for their releases.

Absolutely brilliant first season, with all the main characters well drawn, contrasted and edgy. Bill Skarsgord and Landon Liboiron are new talents to me and I hope they are not... Read morePublished 11 months ago by Miketang
