    • Bad form John, bad form.

      Terrible way to end a series. Most tv shows that have a bad ending, or steep decline in quality I can still tell people to watch up to a point. Not with Penny Dreadful. There's no good stopping point before the end, and the ending is so detestable it ruins the entire experience.

      It looked like, to me at least, that the show was re-written from the point Ethan ran up the stairs to get Vanessa.

      Like they had something else in season 4?? Yes, I know it was announce "it was always only supposed to go three seasons".

      But Caliban? What's he supposed to do? Jekyll? No Hyde monster? Lilly, just wanders off? Frankenstein? Jeez this was an abrupt ending. Dracula ran off in the at least his feet did. Another tell that it was a edit (Leg .

      Yeah, I don't buy it.moreless

    • Season 3 premiere episode is utter BRILLIANCE!!!

      This seasons premiere was one of the best hours of television I have ever seen. From the acting to the cinematography, writing, costumes, lighting and set design there was nothing but brilliance. New interesting characters were introduced, especially Vanessa's new psychologist. The main characters were shown in a new light and I could just feel Vanessa's depression, guilt, loneliness, isolation and lethargy right down to my bones. This was just a magnificent start to the season. Don't get me wrong, I have loved the first two seasons very much but this episode just gave me goosebumps.moreless
