Penny Dreadful Season 3 Finale Preview: “Perpetual Night” and “The Blessed Dark”

[Warning: General spoilers ahead] We’ve somehow already arrived at the end of the third season of Penny Dreadful because Showtime is doing the last two episodes as an event, which I am seriously hoping doesn’t bode for some sort of announcement shenanigans on Monday morning.

Penny Dreadful Preview: “Ebb Tide”

[Warning: General spoilers ahead.] The problem with slow burns is that sometimes a show takes so much sweet bloody time to get where you really want it to go that by the time it does, you don’t really give a damn anymore, or you’re furious that they got there and […]

Penny Dreadful Preview: “No Beast So Fierce”

[Warning: General spoilers ahead.] With only four episodes left this season, Penny Dreadful moves into hyper-speed with an hour that updates all of our core arcs, and admirably does so without feeling like it’s overlong.

Penny Dreadful Preview: “Good and Evil Braided Be”

[Warning: General spoilers ahead.] Good golly, there’s a lot of gore in this week’s Penny Dreadful, but also a lot of heart, in a non-gory way, thankfully, as well as the beginning of a mystery of sorts.

Relationships Are Complicated in Penny Dreadful “Predators Far and Near”

Vanessa Ives has sh-t luck with men. We know this. So it seems all well and good when Dr. Seward encourages her to step out of her comfort zone, which sends her off to the local museum, and she meets the lovely, awkward, and shy zoologist Dr. Sweet. You had to […]

Penny Dreadful Preview: “Predators Far and Near”

[Warning: General spoilers ahead.] While I fully realize TV shows are not written expressly for us, or for me (I KNOW, RIGHT?), I do get disheartened when I’ve gravitated toward a particular arc in a show and that’s the one arc that TPTB decide to move away from. Case in […]
