Supernatural horror 'Hemlock Grove' from director Eli Roth opens to more viewers than 'House of Cards' as season one appears on Netflix.
'Hemlock Grove', the new supernatural horror series from Eli Roth, has been announced by Netflix to have had more viewers on opening on April 19th 2013 than Kevin Spacey's 'House of Cards'.
Netflix has become an immediate 'box set' portal for new TV shows; no more waiting until the end of the season to view back-to-back episodes of your favourite show, you can watch them all as soon as the show is available thanks to a new perspective of TV culture. Earlier this year the streaming site debuted the entire first series of Kevin Spacey's new political drama 'House of Cards' with promises to release the second series on its completion. Although it fared well in reviews, it has been overshadowed by the next show to jump on the box set bandwagon, 'Hemlock Grove', which Netflix reveals did rather better in viewing figures, despite receiving a mixed critical reception. 'We're very pleased with its early performance', Netflix said in their quarterly earnings statement. 'Hemlock Grove was viewed by more members globally in its first weekend than was 'House of Cards' and has been a particular hit among young adults.'
The film will be the first in the Marvel Cinematic Universe led by a person of colour.

Rock legend Eric Clapton has admitted the era of the guitar may be ''over''.
Following his success with 'The Force Awakens', the director will close out the trilogy.
