    Dreadful Ending......Sad

    Sad to see it end..felt relieved after..the show seemed hurried, felt like they want to close shop quickly. In the end nobody ended up on top, most of the characters left quickly too, best scene was when Vanessa was reliving the padded room experience.excellent interaction between her and "Mr. Clare",very fine acting. A lot of questions, one in particular, while expert who studied him, like Hartdegen knew that he could charmed his way to human weakness, why it took 3 seasons for Dracula to figure out the easy way to get to Vanessa, as the saying goes, if you want the job done right, do it yourself..and why did Vanessa gave up knowing the consequences and still have the will to die after being under the power of Dracula, to end the end of days. What now, Dracula, Frankenstein, Creature, Brona, Wolfmen and Mr. Hyde?

    One of the few TV shows that I want to see again and when it became available on Blu-ray at Best Buy at a discounted price, I had to get it. The story is very interesting and certainly is not for youngsters. (There's a lot of violence and a few hanky-panky things going on.) But the production value is excellent and it really looked like they put a lot of money into it. Love all the characters – even the "bad" ones. I think I may have fallen a little for the actor who played Dorian Gray (ha!) There are some twists and turns – but that is what keeping it so interesting.

    Stylish & Sexy Victorian Thriller Returns

    The second season of the Showtime drama Penny Dreadful picks up exactly where the first ended, with a band of unlikely characters in Victorian England battling the forces of the supernatural. The setting allows writer John Logan to put together some of the era's most famous fictional science fiction characters (such as Frankenstein and his monster, or Dorian Gray). Well acted by a superb cast (including Timothy Dalton, Eva Green, Roy Kinnear, and Josh Hartnett), fans of monsters, werewolves, and good storytelling will be entertained.

    A Pretty Good Follow Up

    The second season continues to add to the excellent mythos that the the first season set. It builds upon the existing characters and even adds some further backbone to several characters introduced in the first season. While they added two additional episodes to flesh out the story, it feels a little drawn out when compared to the excellent and fast-paced first season. Overall, more than worth a viewing and purchase.

    Season 2 of 'Penny Dreadful' was just as good, if not better, than the first season. I found this season's story, the new characters, the further character development (a few surprises here) very interesting. I couldn't wait to get to the next episode (no binge-watching here!). The only negative issue was the short production blogs instead of more in-depth extras on some of the production aspects (sets, costumes, etc.).

    Not as fast paced as season 1

    I was hooked by Penny Dreadful from the first episode of season 1. The second season was a little disappointing as it was without as many surprises as the first, and the overall pace was much slower. I still enjoyed the season, but I found the plot to be less intense. I felt like Timothy Dalton's character was a shadow of the last season; he was almost unnecessary. Frankenstein's monster was a highlight of the season.

    This series is one of my favorites. I love how it incorporates all of the classic monsters, villains and heroes from each of their respective and contemporary times. This show has a dark and sinister undertone. Well worth the purchase and even more the time to watch. Kudos to the cast and crew for this GREAT SERIES!! A MARVEL TO WATCH!!

    The second season is even better than the first

    Great characters portrayed by a great cast. This series blends the supernatural using infamous horror characters that we are all know, such as Dorain Gray and Frankenstein. This concept has been somewhat covered in movies like, "Van Helsing" and "The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen". However, here the themes are for a more adult audience.
