Penny Dreadful is perhaps one of the most well crafted TV show in decades. Gothic and alluring, the show has the ability to suck you in like blackholes swallow light and well...everything else. The storylines are magnetic, the acting is superb; especially that of Eva Green, and the cinematography is simply impeccable. Nothing is wasted in the world of Miss Vanessa Ives, as she faces the monsters and demons that throughout centuries have collectively terrify us and made us fear the dark. Miss Ives relishes in the light, but cannot resist the darkness that haunts her relentlessly and unequivocally. The gallery of characters that accompany or antagonize Vanessa, are as equally charming, provocative, and mysterious as our heroine is.
There has never been anything like Penny Dreadful before, and never will again because the fabric which it is made of (beauty, sadness, heart, pain, and darkness) is a rare combination hardly anyone can master.
An absolutely great cast and an outstanding John Logan make Penny worth every dollar you'll spend buying it.
