Media Monday–Penny Dreadful

Penny DreadfulI watched Penny Dreadful last evening (free weekend on Showtime). Not sure what I think of it.

I adored the characters themselves, especially Eva Green, Timothy Dalton & Josh Hartnett, but it almost seemed like it went too fast, if that makes sense. I always felt like I was scrambling to catch up. Maybe that’s part of the Gothic draw?


The concept itself is really fun, and I love the fact that Dr. Frankenstein is a main character, as is Dorian Gray.

Anyway, I’ll grab the first season off of Netflix and see if I enjoy it any better the second time around.

Did anyone catch the season premier?  I’m interested to see where it went 🙂
