It's already the penultimate episode of Penny Dreadful season two (time flies when you're being chased by satanic witches!), and things are not going great for our lil' scooby gang.Read More
In which Nice Guy John Clare takes it up a notch.
Honestly, what just happened?Read More
It's on, Dreadfuls!
We know, we know. If you didn't already love Showtime's Penny Dreadful, you were likely wooed by Sam Maggs' on-point recaps. Either way, you have reason to be excited. Penny Dreadful was just renewed for a third season!Read More
In which Vanessa and Ethan play house.
Did you think that just because I was leaving The Mary Sue I was going to abandon you in the middle of a season of Penny Dreadful? Well think again, because someone has to call out Nice Guy John Clare on the internet, and that person is darn well going to be me.Read More

Kinda, sorta, well okay, not really.
This video, while adorable and heartbreaking at the same time, simply raises more questions for me. Do they celebrate Mother's Day in Westeros? Why was Hodor hiding in the curtain? Why am I laughing so hard?!Read More
In which Helen McCrory comes for Eva Green['s Acting Queen title].
After a fittingly long and drawn-out hiatus over the course of a dark winter, Penny Dreadful has crept back onto our television screens, scorpions, Satan, and all. Oh, and some witches this time, too.Read More
