Hemlock Grove (NETFLIX) – Season 2

hemlock

Binge festers prepare, Hemlock Grove debuts its second season on Netflix. This horror supernatural thriller has plenty more murderous violence and small-town mystery for fans to uncover. It is far from True Blood‘s story and American Horror Story‘s horror and more like their mutant offspring. If you like slow mystery, light horror and a whole lot of bizarre then check it out, maybe even binge it.

“EVEN DEMONS HAVE DEMONS”

As a Netflix Original Series, all episodes will be released together on July 11th.

Orphan Black (BBC) – Series Premiere Preview

orphan black bbc america

Orphan Black is Canada’s latest science fiction creation and second original series from BBC America after Copper. The series premiere was met with mixed reviews as is anything in the diverse yet often repetitive and unoriginal world of sci-fi. *Spoiler: It’s about clones. Tatiana Maslany plays Sarah, who is portrayed as criminal who learns she is a clone.. or is the original and has been cloned? We don’t know yet. The pilot came across more of an action-thriller-drama with a mystery/sci-fi climax. Unlike a lot of reviewers, I thought this was the perfect introduction and it made me think of Dark Angel for the character and Fringe for the conspiracy right away. I’m sure the sci-fi will be less of an undertone and more of the dominant force throughout the series as we follow the storyline.

Cult (CW) – Series Premiere Trailer

Cult-on-The-CW-610x342

Cult, is The CW‘s latest series and joins a mid-season onslaught of dark thriller series on network television. This new breed of mixed psychological, conspiracy and sometimes demonic thriller series includes the likes of The Following (FOX), Do No Harm (NBC) and Zero Hour (ABC). The Following is a relative success, Do No Harm was cancelled after 2 weeks and Zero Hour will probably share a similar fate. The bunch seem to be drawing on the likes of Dexter, Lost, American Horror Story and other random successes. The Following is both controversial and accompanied by mixed-reviews but seems to be holding it’s own as a hit for FOX. On the other hand, Do No Harm, was like an experiment gone wrong part 2 for NBC (re: Awake). Zero Hour is sure to be another huge flop (Last Resort, The River) of a big drama thriller for ABC which is still clearly ‘lost’ in the past (re: LOST). Will Cultthe show within a show type of show, represent the status quo or turn a different leaf? The bigger question: why is Cult paired with Hart of Dixie on Tuesday nights?

CW, Machinima team on ‘Cult’ aftershow (Variety)

cult cast

Cult stars Mathew Davis (The Vampire Diaries), Rober Knepper aka T-Bag (Prison Break, Heroes), Israeli-American singer and actress Alona Tal and Vancouver’s very own Jessica Lucas (Melrose Place, Edgemont). Other Canadians include Marie Avgeropoulos, Ben Hollingsworth and Stacey Farber. The sole reason I’ll personally be tuning into Cult is because it’s filmed here in Vancouver and has a cast largely made up of Vancouver and other Canadian actors. Plus the cast includes T-Bag!

Cult premieres Tuesday, February 19th on The CW (9pm east/8pm central)
