TV Review: "Hemlock Grove"... WTF?

When Netflix announced it would be premiering Hemlock Grove to follow its uber-successful hit House of Cards, the buzz was tremendous. The trailer for the show only added to the frenzy.
Then it premiered… and became quite possibly the most awkward, nonsensical, ridiculous show around. Famke Janssen, arguably the show’s biggest star, puts on what may go down as history’s worst accent, the dialogue is pretentious and the thrills are few and far between.
Though initial ratings were higher for Grove than for House of Cards, that bubble soon burst- proving networks (whether on television or internet-driven) still don’t know how to make lightning strike twice.
