  • clear feminist agenda

    the show is good, but, doesn't depict the era without adding that feminist element that is prevalent in many shows currently..



    still the acting and atmosphere makes it a very watchable not a 10 and not a 1...

    Trust me, this show is worlds apart from that terrible movie. This show manages to tie various classic horror stories together in a way that is not at all cheesy.

  • What A Pleasant Surprise!

    I was completely resistant to this show - even after Showtime graciously allowed us to see the first episode for free last spring, I let my biases sway me. Out of desperation (the DVD's I wanted were not available at my library) - I borrowed and binge-watched all of Season 1. Boy, was I wrong. It was not the standard "Victorian vampire mystery" - but so much more. Will be writing on the Community page - don't want to spill too much here.moreless

    Penny Dreadful "And Hell Itself My Only Foe" Review: Friends Til the End (PHOTO RECAP)

    The gang joined forces to save one of their own! Also a bug crawled out of a ghost-zombie's mouth.

    Penny Dreadful "Memento Mori" Review: True Defective (PHOTO RECAP)

    This Eva Green-free episode still contained enough twists and show-stopping monologues to make it the best Penny Dreadful episode yet.
