    Penny Dreadful

    It's on Showtime, Eva Green stars and it was created by Sam Mendes.

    I'd watch Eva hanging wallpaper so I'm sold.

    The greatest trick a horrible movie ever pulled was convincing the forum that Chuk doesn't know shit.

    She looks like that Twilight chick. I don't know that I've ever seen her in anything before.

    i have googled her, i remember the angelique role, but not her. she is cute, but i wouldnt tune in to this schlock just to see her. timothy dalton seems cool, he plays good villains.

    She's the star of the new 300 movie also. Pretty much the only decent part of it too.

    I enjoyed the first episode, pretty dark and has a serious tone which I usually prefer in the supernatural. As far as Pilots go I definitely think they nailed the vibe. Too bad the second episode isn't til like may 18th. I'd recommend checking it out on youtube.

    I liked this one, timothy dalton does well, and victor has a decent intensity to him.

    My main complaint is the nudity ratio is outrageously skewed toward naked cock. Like, full frontal male nudity everywhere and the most female nudity was some chick showing off her calves.

    If they swing that back toward HBO standards, could be a great show ;p

    I was impressed, it was played straight, no camp which was good. Quality production values and the story kept me interested. I agree waiting till the 18th is going suck.

    I'm a huge Eva Green fan and besides her being gorgeous something about her voice also works for me.

    Really liked the first episode. I just hope they aren't trying to mash too many stories together with Vampires/Frankenstein/Jack the Ripper all at the same time. They're basically taking everything scary/horror that can be tied to Victorian-era England and touching on all of it at once. That being said, I wouldn't mind a good, serious horror series. True Blood failed miserably at filling that niche, and American Horror Story was just dumb from the get-go.

    American Horror Story wasn't that bad last season. The mental home one was fucking awful though.

    I gave up on American Horror Story halfway through the first season. Did it actually get better after that?

    I guess I could never get past the fact that all of their problems would have ceased to exist if they had just left the house. Durp. Why are you staying in a house that is trying to make you insane and kill your family?

    So far it looks amazing, imagine Coppola's Dracula lasting for 10-12 episodes.... that's the vibe i got

    Supernatural is too cheesy (i love just for that)
    Grimm is decent
    Sleepy Hollow is just meh
    Salem seems too easy
    Dracula 2013 is not gritty enough

    And i'm probably forgetting a few shows that are not even worth talking about.

    PS : American Horror Story wasn't that bad, but it lacked that something AND was too slow....

    Way too much Dylan McDermott beating off.
    If the porn isn't high res you can't get horny, but you can hate a guy at 1000 paces without a scope. That's human nature.

    I had no idea what this show would be about:
    Spoiler: 
    The vampire den lead me to thinking about typical lore, which then lead me to thinking the hired gun is Van Hellsing, it hit me the moment Frankenstein powered up the lab that he is indeed Victor Frankenstein, which further leads me into thinking old James Bond is Dracula or deeply involved in the blood curse that made the first vampires. Love the Egyptian angle too.


    It is awesome.

    Well his daughter's name is Mina and she is a vampire now, which is from Bram Stoker's Dracula. The vampire he is seeking is probably Dracula.

    Not sure what to make of this so far. Reviews were saying that episode one was meh but things really pick up in the second. I found it exactly the opposite. The pilot came across as a show trying to be League of Extraordinary Gentlemen-done-right, while the second episode dragged on and now the season is 1/4 done and basically nothing has happened yet. We still don't know anything at all about these characters other than Frankenstein; for the rest, almost anything you think you know comes from the stories the characters originated in or the opening credits.
    Spoiler: 
    Referring to Ethan probably being a werewolf.
    (Not really sure that's a spoiler, nor do I even know if it's correct, but whatever...)

    Definitely going to keep watching but I just wish they'd pick up the pace.


    Edit: In case you're not aware, this is showing up on demand a week in advance of the normal Sunday night airtime on SHO.

    What is Eva's thing then?

    Possessed by a demon? Spider lady?

    From episode 2, she is possessed by whatever that Egyptian demon thing is (Amunet or something) and the crazy Egyptian devil (Amun-Ra?) wants to hatefuck her and thus end the world or something.

    Well, she appears to have been Mina's friend, which I guess would make her the show's [heavily altered] version of Lucy Westenra.
    Ep.02 spoilers:
    Spoiler: 
    There's the Egyptian thing too, but I'm confused on that one. She spoke as both of Sir Malcolm's children during the seance, but in between switching from Peter to Mina she clearly says, "Not Amunet, much older," but then the next day Lyle still refers to her having put on a performance as Amunet when he's translating the hieroglyphs.


    Just more exposition I wish they'd get out of the way quicker. I'd be more patient if this was a normal TV season, but there's only 8 episodes of this show. I remember thinking True Detective took a while to get moving, but this is much slower so far.

    Yeah the whole "not Amunet, much older" thing coupled with the fruity doctor calling her Amunet again the next day, all of that confused me.

    I have to go agree, I felt episode 1 was excellent, however episode 2 was confusing and really lost some the steam of episode 1.

    1 thing that is underrated in Eva is her smoldering eyes, everyone talks about her rack as well as her bangin body, how pretty she is super model looks, she started out as model and then quickly came movies bond girl etc.

    I liked both episodes so far. The last 5 minutes of episode one (Proteus scene) was strangely emotional for me. Terrific television.

    Yep, the seance scene was just amazing, I have new respect for her and I'll put this on my to-watch list.

    The way I interpreted it, was that yes, she was known as Amunet at one point in time, but that the spirit or whatever is much older than even the egyptians. Thus, the seance lady referred to her as Amunet and was correct, but that's just not where she originated.

    Had to watch it twice, was packed with more information but less action then the first. I'm really hoping this quality continues till episode eight. I'm really interested in how they will tie all the name characters together.

    The whole seance scene was a bit confusing with the perspective changes but loving this show so far. I roll right from GoT to this. Best night of TV .

    Yeah, only the first two aired early on demand. Now it sucks having to wait two weeks for more.

    last night I felt it was kinda of a weak episode focusing mainly on Frankenstein and his orginal creation.

    Yep, the 3rd episode was by far the weakest so far. Pretty boring overall. Hope it's just a bump in the road and not a steady decline from this point on, after the first 2 amazing episodes.

    Saw Rose's naked behind. Not sure that's anything to get excited about, though.

    Enjoying the series so far. Bride of Frankenstein woo!

    Any time there's no face and lots of coverage (e.g. frizzy hair ), it's a pretty safe bet that it's a stunt ass.

    I pray episode 4 picks the pace and story back up, cause 3 wasn't even filler it was crap.

    Sometimes but since it's Billie Piper whose never been shy about showing all her bits, especially in Secrets of a Call Girl, I'm thinking it's all her.

    Easiest way to tell is to go to MrSkin and see if they report the scene as a bodydouble

    I guess Dorian Gray will end up fucking everyone on the cast or something. Billie Piper is probably going to be the bride too. Ethan is definitely a werewolf.

    I kind of wonder if Dorian has some leet seduction power, since he seems to be able to hook someone in almost no time flat.

    Yep, I think you're right.

    Oh, and mental note: Drinking Absinthe makes you gay.

    Fixed because ....

    I have drank absinthe 5 times and only once did I suck dick.

    EDIT: I agree on the bride thing too, seems pretty obvious. If the story goes anything like the Bride of Frankstein movie that had Sting in it (the only one I have seen) she will reject the monster.

    EDIT 2: Also, I really think Mr Chandler is a werewolf and we got our Van Helsing question answered with the hematologist.

    Dorian kills everyone through sex so I am assuming he is going to try and kill Ethan who will wolf out and what the fuck slaughter him only to see him alive again days later.

    Bro, I meant to write that earlier. When they where at the underground Dog Rat Kill Show and those 4 uppity Brits gave Ethan shit they said "you are in Britain now" and that totally triggered that for me.

    Not sure how much more I can handle of this show, I seem to fall asleep every time I try watching it. Ethan is the most interesting character and I really don't like the guy playing the monster for some reason

    The story really needs to pick up the pace. The last 2 episodes have been damn boring compared to the first 2.

    I think a lot of people tuned into this show wanting Eva tits, and on that front it has failed miserably. We can't even get Eva cleavage. "let's cast Eva green in a showtime production then have her wear as much clothes as possible!"

    I just want more people being ripped out of buildings, vampire torture dens, and crazy demon seances like the first 2 episodes. Frankensteins monster bores me tremendously, as does the consuption whore.

    So even naked Eva Green wasn't enough to get this thread bumped? I think she is really nailing her performance but even with the backstory episode the whole thing seems meandering and lost. We are getting some great acting but the story needs to really start coming together because right now I'm like "this is neat, but why exactly am I watching?"

    This whole crusade to rescue Mina is the problem; focusing the plot on a character we never got to know or care about is just bad writing. Her father is a dick, her friend is possessed, side characters are side characters and everyone is unhappy, frightened or perversely amused when called for.. the end. Hopefully Mina can die or get recovered and enable this show to find its stride before it gets canned.

    Nah, the problem is that the show has barely touched Mina. It has the same problem Black Sails had, in that it thinks characters we know nothing about are strong enough to carry the show without any action to advance the main plot that would help define those characters. With that said, I really liked the last episode and thought it tied a lot together.

    Yes... as I said. It's a problem because Nina is a nonentity to the audience but the driving focus of the main characters.

    Hopefully they won't still be looking for her in season two.

    Really enjoyed the back story on the last ep. Though wondering how the demonic possession may play into the story line here and if at all.

    Yeah, it just seems to hop from episode to episode with no real direction in terms of storyline.

    It's pretty far along now and I have no idea where the show is going from minute to minute and not in a good way.

    Great news indeed. From that article: "The first season will also provide closure to the current main story arc, involving the search for Sir Malcolmís (Daltonís) lost daughter".
