I just finished watching the last episode of season 2 last night.
First off, I loved it! Secondly, I also noticed that on a sub conscious emotional level it has left me very disturbed as in Depressed, Sad, Worried,
and just having a level of thinking bad things will happen.....
First the music at the beginning of the show, it took me awhile to realize it, but the music is disturbing! I have a background as a classical
trombonist, yea it's true, and I really enjoy playing and listening to classical music. It can be emotional on many levels. This short piece however,
at least for me, is very disturbing.
Here it is.
Now onto the other issue of the show, that I just can't put a finger on as to why it bothers me!
I see her portrayed as the monster of the show, as being not human. YET! She is to me, the sacrificial lamb so to speak. Outwardly she is a monster,
but she is actually kind, intelligent, compassionate, loving and loyal. Yet, she seems to be in a constant state of misery and emotional pain? I find
myself looking at her as the only good thing in a world full of evil.
I will just say this as to not spoil it for someone who has yet to watch it; but, I was so happy for her at the end of season 2 to only be emotionally
I rarely let ANY show on television become nothing more than mindless entertainment. I thoroughly enjoy every aspect of Hemlock Grove, with the
exception of feeling severely depressed and the feelings of hopelessness though, that this show leaves me with. I even wake up the next day having
feelings of dread and sadness after watching it.
Anyhow, since I just shared what might be considered to some as embarrassing, emotional issues, I was wondering if anyone else might have noticed
these things. After waking up this morning and having to deal with the depression, even after a good nights rest, I need some therapy as to why this
show has such an effect on me.
Anyhow, I am interested in others thoughts on this show.
Because of this thread I will give it another chance and try it again.
I looked cool so I cued it up in my netflix but when I started watching I was more like Meh...
Thought it was kinda for the younger generations, but ok Iam gonna give it another go.
Iam in dire need of something to watch. binge-watch, that is.
Interesting point about the shows effect on you, I too also have similar experiences watching Breaking Bad. I tried the show & the whole cancer thing
& the persistent darkness of the show gave me a lasting impression that the world & life in general is pretty grim, & not so much fun, & ironically
you even have to work hard to prepare for death.
However, upon resuming & rewatching it (only made it mid way through S1 on my first attempt) I am throroughly enjoying it & those emotions have

I mean, no matter how you slice it, the "new body" is really just a copy. It isn't "you", regardless.
They're still killing the original (or at least, it was the plan)...
It's like teleportation in Star Trek. I'm with Bones. Disintegrating me, then putting me back together with a computer program, is still killing ME
and replicating me, just like the replicator machine spits out a hot dog and tea, Earl Grey, hot..... No thanks Kirk..... You think Kirk would drink
"replicated" Romulan Ale. As they say in the show, they can't get it quite right, so if they can't get THAT right, what confidence do I have in
unscrambling MY atoms?
Same idea here on Hemlock Grove. Just doesn't seem to jive that Pryce would take that kind of a risk with Shelly. (which is a great play on words, by
the way...i.e. Shelley's Frankenstein).
I started watching this last year and didn't realize it had returned. It's a bit over my head as I can't really figure out what's going on. Like the
big research building. It kind of reminds me a bit of LOST. I guess because of the Dharma stuff.
There's going to be a 3rd season, thanks to fan support (and final season), that should wrap it all up, but I can't find an exact release date other
than "Summer of 2015". The confirmation was from Netflix though, so not sure if delayed.
It is a bit heady, but a LOT is explained in the 2nd season, especially what Roman and his mother are, etc.
