PENNY DREADFUL: THE FINAL SEASON

1 min read

PENNY DREADFUL REVIEWED

“Penny Dreadful” will be the show that you wished you watched live on Showtime. While Ryan Murphy is setting the mainstream stage for TV horror, “Penny Dreadful” was the side show that was frequently outperforming what you might find on FX. The makeup was better than most films and the story hit that sweet Victorian junk lit spot for me. These were mature tales about the greatest monsters working in an all-too real setting. Plus, it has to be my favorite TV use of Dracula ever.

Sadly, the show ended with the fanfare given to a favorite dying before its time. While following cult successes always ends in heartbreak, be glad for the time you spent with Ethan, Vanessa and The Creature. Hell, I’m going to miss Hecate too. The only downside is that I must be one of the only fans that didn’t enjoy “Penny Dreadful” becoming the Eva Green show. This series works as an ensemble piece and when it hit that on the nose, it was perfect. The only thing Showtime has left for me is “Shameless” and the promise of a returning “Twin Peaks”.
