Penny Dreadful (Pilot)

 

Episode 101

After much anticipation, the new gothic horror show from Showtime Penny Dreadful premiers tonight.  Technically the pilot has been available for the past week or so on demand but the nation wide debut is tonight.

Vampire

The Players: Josh Hartnett (Ethan Chandler); Eva Green (Vanessa Ives); Timothy Dalton (Sir Malcolm); Harry Treadaway (Dr. Victor Frankenstein)

Episode 101

First Impressions:  The first episode has proven to be quite the introduction to a cast of characters from literature who have been meshed wonderfully with a new set characters to battle the forces of evil in the streets of Victorian London.  The show starts out bloody with a gruesome murder and rolls along introducing us to the main players Ethan Chandler, Vanessa Ives and Sir Malcolm as the trio come together under mysterious circumstances. We follow them through the opium dens of London to the lair of a monster and the crude butcheresque mortuary where a certain Doctor is working on his greatest experiment.  The first episode of Penny Dreadful is quite good and I look forward to seeing more and more of the gothic goodness.
