Industrial Revolution. Monsters. Bloodshed.
Penny Dreadful, the latest venture from Sky and Showtime should be a creepy concoction of brutal mashed up monster masses.
Through the juicy looking glass of 19th century London, Penny Dreadful explores the smokey streets and dark alleys in one of history’s most intriguing eras, with the added bonus of classic Gothic ghouls. It’s a terrific set up, but one that Penny Dreadful’s first season fails to exploit.
