TV Review: ‘Penny Dreadful,’ Season 2

“Sumptuously shot in Ireland, the series thus represents a fine and frankly shrewdly calculated addition to Showtime’s roster, in the same way any savvy manager wants to assemble a diversified portfolio. If that sounds somewhat dismissive, remember that producing a credible gothic drama isn’t as easy as it sounds (just ask Netflix’s “Hemlock Grove”). Besides, given the appetite for the genre, a program that’s simply unapologetic fun, as this is, can be plenty good, “Penny”-wise.”
We agree… and we practically levitate whenever the Grand Guignol theater shows up (and it looks like it will be seeing plenty of action this season)!  If you haven’t seen it yet, may we suggest bingeing on Season One, then catching up? This show just keeps getting better and better… and more fun. Also, Eva Green continues to kill it with her fearless performance.
