Penny Dreadful

  1. Patti LuPone Cast In Season 2 Of Penny Dreadful

    God, that's good!

    You know how for Penny Dreadful fans, there's a lot of overlap between people who like campy stories about fighting demons and people who like tonally-faithful interpretations of famous literary works?  We're gonna go ahead and guess that there's a lot of musical theater fans among y'all as well, because who doesn't love the literary made camp like a Broadway nerd? Well, hold on to your playbills, because all your dreams are coming true.

  2. Be Still Our Hearts: Penny Dreadful Veteran To Direct Sophie Turner In Mary Shelley’s Monster

    Sorry, Joffrey, there's a new monster in town!

    Hollywood's having a bit of a Mary Shelley moment, which is good news because we're having a Mary Shelley lifetime. Deadline reports that Game of Thrones' Sophie Turner is now set to star in Mary Shelley's Monster, a film that follows the author as she "writes her seminal novel and is drawn into a Faustian bargain with her own “monster” of an alter ego." Deep breath.

  4. Penny Dreadful Episode 8 Review: “Grand Guignol”

    In which predictable things happen, but in the best way possible.

    Penny Dreadful came to a close this week with more of a shadowy, haunting whimper than a twenty-first century bang, and I was completely okay with it. Though it left us with as many questions as it did answers, I really didn't expect anything less; if you did - what show have you been watching for eight weeks?

  5. Penny Dreadful Episode 7 Review: “Possession”

    In which Eva Green actually earns herself an Emmy nomination.

    The penultimate episode of Penny Dreadful gave us pretty much everything we've come to love about this show - Eva Green's acting, Gothic horror, Josh Hartnett's bad-assery, and the devil. Oh, and a (thankfully) notable lack of Nice Guy Caliban. Let's get to this review before the inevitably-insane finale, shall we?

  6. Penny Dreadful Episode 6 Review: “What Death Can Join Together”

    In which Vanessa continues to have the weirdest sex.

    After our episode-long jaunt into Vanessa's past, "What Death Can Join Together" puts us solidly on the path to Penny Dreadful's future - one we can only assume will be filled with vampires, wacky sex shenanigans, and the devil. And hopefully werewolves. Seriously, why the holdout on the werewolves?

    This week's episode of Penny Dreadful was one giant epistolary flashback, all about Vanessa's childhood and back story. And also a little bit about the devil. Well, it's Penny Dreadful; what else did you expect from a childhood tale?

  9. Things We Saw Today: Teenage Mullet Peter Dinklage

    Things We Saw Today

    Redditor cameroncrazy85 found this bemullet'ed picture of Peter Dinklage from the actor's 1987 high school yearbook. Now I'm imagining Tywin—no, not Tyrion, Tywin—Lannister with that haircut. Someone stop me. Or Photoshop it. Either way. (The Wrap)

  10. Penny Dreadful Gets a Season Two Renewal From Showtime!

    We're happier than... well, any of the Penny Dreadful characters, really.

    Great news if you're a fan of Penny Dreadful (and you should be because it is great)! The show just got picked up for a second season according to Deadline. That means more weird terrifying literary spookiness will be had by all. We're really big fans of this show, so we're glad to see it's being kept alive.
