The 20 Most Absurd Moments in Hemlock Grove (And Why You Need to Watch)

Landon Liboiron

Hemlock Grove isn't good by any means, but it is great (just not if you watch earnestly). The Netflix original series is unfocused, over-dramatic, convoluted and stagnant all at once — which is exactly why you need to watch. Because Hemlock Grove doesn't even attempt coherence, it's impossible to predict what's coming, making every episode an exhilarating surprise. The mad scientist has super-strength? Weird. What's this secret Catholic werewolf hunter society? Bizarre. Are we ever going to find out why Roman has mind-control powers? Who cares! read more

Bill Skarsgard, Landon Liboiron

This was another wrenching week in our nation's history when sudden tragedy galvanizes the country's attention, and all eyes (often fueled nowadays by social media) turn to TV for the latest developments — for better or sometimes worse, given the get-it-first-and-maybe-even-right nature of the 24/7 news cycle. We'll never forget those images of horror and heroism issuing from Boston, such is the nature of the medium and the immediacy of the message.

Thank god for FX and its ...

Question: Thank god for FX and its Famke-love. Any news on what Famke Janssen's character will be on The Shield?


Answer: As I mentioned in Press Tour Diary: Fox Day Two, it's Franka Potente, not Famke Janssen, who's doing The Shield. And she's playing the wife of an Armenian mob boss. BTW, FX screened the sixth-season premiere for critics at press tour, and I'm not overselling it when I say it's a step up from brilliant. There's a scene between Forest Whitaker and Michael Chiklis outside Kavanaugh's house that will give you goose bumps. I'm counting the days until January.
