  3. Get Your Eva Green Fix With This New Penny Dreadful Behind-The-Scenes Featurette

    With bonus and completely random Mass Effect content!

    Here's a frightful new behind-the-scenes segment on Penny Dreadful, taken from the first season Blu-Ray/DVD set! It includes lots of interviews with your faves - and a few newer faces, too (Helen McCrory!). Also, at the 1:00 minute mark, the background music for this video is absolutely without question "Leaving Earth" from the Mass Effect 3 soundtrack. I can't handle the combination of Mass Effect and Penny Dreadful. I need to lie down.

  4. Penny Dreadful Season Two Is Magically Turning Dublin Into A Winter Horrorland

    I'm expecting some of Wordsworth's "The Brothers," judging by these shots.

    Penny Dreadful is skulking back through the darkness of Victorian London to our screens for season two, and I couldn't be more excited about it. Shooting on the new season started last week, and various crew members have been tweeting photos to either mitigate or worsen the waiting pain, depending on what kind of person you are. I need more weird sex and Eva Green in my life, stat.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  8. 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?

  9. 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?

  10. 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?
