Eleven things about Hemlock Grove

Ed Williamson

18th April 2013

While browsing Digital Spy today I noticed a feature called 'Ten things about Henry Cavill'. Not 'ten remarkable things', you'll notice. Just things. Inside I found what was essentially his Wikipedia page split into a ten-strong bullet list with exclamation marks added. So if there's no need to pretend your points have value as long as they're in a list, it stands to reason that a longer list means a better feature. Here, then, are eleven things about Hemlock Grove.
