  1. Time Warner and CBS Might Finally Be Thinking About Offering Online Subscriptions To HBO and Showtime

    "All men must buy!"

    I mean, I'll believe it when I see it, but it's about damn time they're considering it.

  3. 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?

  4. 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?

  5. 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?

  6. Penny Dreadful Episode 5 Review: “Closer Than Sisters”

    In which James Bond and Vesper Lynd totally get it on again.

    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?

  7. 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.

  8. Penny Dreadful Episode 4 Review: “Demimonde”

    In which everyone has some deep, dark secret, and is getting laid.

    "Demimonde" is, in keeping with the whole "thematic title" thing Penny Dreadful's got going on, very much about the hidden darkness beneath the mundane selves that we present to the world. It's also about Josh Hartnett getting as much tail as possible. I'm getting my wish every week!

  9. Penny Dreadful Episode 3 Review: “Resurrection”

    In which there are more literary references than I can possibly handle.

    Penny Dreadful continues along a gothically freaky path this week, giving us more of what I love about the show so far, and less of what I don't (namely, Dorian Gray). "Resurrection" leaves us with almost as many questions as answers, but we do know one thing for sure: Josh Harnett's butt needs as much air-time as possible.

  10. Penny Dreadful Episode 2 Review: “Séance”

    In which Eva Green secures herself an Emmy nomination.

    While episode one introduced us to the darkly gothic Victorian underworld of Penny Dreadful, episode two takes us deeper into the show's pervasive mythology and mystery. And it also gives us Billie Piper's boobs. So generally it's just a great time.
