The new Netflix series Hemlock Grove cannot be beat in terms of the sheer majesty of its scope. It’s 13 hours of werewolves, gypsies, vampires, virgins, pregnant virgins, angels, old money, bioethical dilemmas, high school, school dances, insane asylums, Frankenstein, convenient comas, lunatics, palm reading, autohypnosis, jellyfish floating in sky sky (?), rust belt squalor, suicide, sex, magic, necromancy, drugs, graverobbing, dragons, torture, merry go rounds, hard boiled detectives, alcohol, rape, psychic nosebleeds, prostitution, catholicism, incest, old hollyhood, camp, ridiculousness…. it’s just too much.

 

And it is wonderful.
