Penny Dreadful episode 8 review: Grand Guignol

8 July 2014 11:16 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Penny Dreadful's finale rounds off a masterful first season. Here's Becky's review of Grand Guignol...

Review

This review contains spoilers. 

1.8 Grand Guignol

Grand Guignol draws the first season of Penny Dreadful to a close as Vanessa finally learns the location of childhood friend, Mina. Murray reveals the extent to which he would go in order to get his daughter back and sets about gathering their allies for the final confrontation. Elsewhere, Frankenstein and his Creature are forced back together and Chandler’s past begins to catch up with him as Brona’s illness finally takes its course.

The constant presence of death has been one of the chief concerns for the characters of Penny Dreadful, whether it be facing its ominous approach or attempting to find ways of defeating it. In Grand Guignol, death comes to the fore once again not as a finality, but an opportunity for rebirth. »

Penny Dreadful: Was season 1 bloody magnificent or a moody mess?

8 July 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Penny Dreadful aired its first season finale tonight (July 8) on Sky Atlantic in the UK - a little over a week after Us viewers witnessed Sir Malcolm's tragic reunion with daughter Mina.

Now that John Logan's 'Grand Guignol' has aired on both sides of the Atlantic, Digital Spy wants your thoughts on the first 8 episodes of Penny Dreadful - was this a lurid and moody chiller right up your smog-cloaked street, or a confused and messy series that tried to do too much at once?

Penny Dreadful: Sex, blood, violence and good-looking people

Was the finale everything you'd hoped - or an anti-climax? Were you stunned when Brona (Billie Piper) met her end - or when Ethan (Josh Hartnett)'s dark, hairy secret was revealed?

And with season two coming to Showtime and Sky in 2015, what do you think is next for Malcolm (Timothy Dalton) and his cohorts? »

Get an Inside Look at the Penny Dreadful Season Finale Episode 1.08 - Grand Guignol

1 July 2014 3:10 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Opinions seem to be mixed with regard to how the first season of "Penny Dreadful" ended this past weekend, but if you're anxious to learn more, then check out this inside look at Episode 1.08, "Grand Guignol," with creator and executive producer John Logan.

A profoundly unsettling new saga, "Penny Dreadful" completely reinvents literature’s most terrifying characters, including Dr. Frankenstein, Dorian Gray, and iconic figures from the novel Dracula, who are lurking in the darkest corners of Victorian London.

Timothy Dalton, Reeve Carney, Josh Hartnett, Harry Treadaway, Rory Kinnear, Billie Piper, and Eva Green star. As we learned earlier this month, Showtime has already renewed the series for a second season consisting of 10 episodes.

“Penny Dreadful” Finale: “Do You Want to Be Normal?”

1 July 2014 6:28 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Since day one, Showtime’s Penny Dreadful has been an exercise in elevating trash. Week after week, the show has delivered lyrically written, handsomely shot, beautifully acted pulp. This is by no means a slight, mind you – I love trash even when it isn’t elevated by fine performances and swoon-worthy production design. But it’s therefore a slight bit of a disappointment to round out the season with the show’s most predictable episode. This series is obsessed with curses – has it fallen prey to the “genre curse” that it has festooned itself within an inch of its life (or, in some cases, afterlife) to evade?

Let’s dig in!

A freshly exorcised Vanessa Side-Eyeves (Eva Green) tells Malcolm Murray (Timothy Dalton) that Mina is in the Grand Guignol Theatre, because visions. Am I the only one questioning why a vampire and his burgeoning bride would hang out in »

Season finale review: 'Penny Dreadful' - 'Grand Guignol'

30 June 2014 7:10 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"Penny Dreadful" concluded its first season last night. Our own Greg Ellwood reviewed the finale, and I have some thoughts on that episode and season 1 as a whole coming up just as soon as I return to the land of ice chips and cherry phosphates... At the beginning of the season, I called this show "entertaining, if largely nonsensical," and was dazzled enough by J.A. Bayona's direction and some of the performances (notably Eva Green and Timothy Dalton) to overlook some of the rougher patches. The directors who succeeded Bayona couldn't quite match his visual flair, but the show compensated in other ways. There's still a sense that John Logan is throwing a lot of ideas at the wall — with the finale revealing that Ethan is a werewolf(*) and that Brona will be resurrected as the bride of Frankenstein's monster — to see what sticks, but later episodes brought certain character arcs to the forefront, »

‘Penny Dreadful’ Season Finale: Why the Werewolf Is Kind of Special

30 June 2014 7:06 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

(Spoiler alert: Don't read this if you don't want to know what happened on Sunday's “Penny Dreadful.”) Sunday's surprising, satisfying “Penny Dreadful” finale beautifully tied up several of the storylines that creator John Logan has subtly spun throughout the season, while setting up a Season 2 that I badly want to watch. There were there three major surprised by my count, though some fans saw two of them coming long ago.

‘Penny Dreadful’ Finale Gives Fans Their Money’s Worth (Spoilers)

29 June 2014 11:15 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Occasionally, the right cast can trump relatively mundane material, and so it is with the opening arc of “Penny Dreadful,” the macabre Showtime series that turned Victorian-era monsters into a mashed-up smorgasbord of bawdy delights. Already renewed, the show aired its season finale Sunday, tying up a few loose ends while unfurling enough new ones to be both mildly satisfying and intriguing.

Series creator John Logan’s florid concoction hardly broke new ground. Indeed, throwing together characters like Dr. Frankenstein and Dorian Gray essentially mirrored the template employed on “The League of Extraordinary Gentleman,” which was turned into a very disappointing movie given the promise of the source material. (Notably, Gray and minor “Dracula” characters played a part in that as well.)

Exhibiting little growth from the early stages of the series, the action sequences remained indifferent right up through the finale (and Spoiler Alert if you haven’t watched »

Season Finale Review: 'Penny Dreadful' - Farewell to a daughter, hello to a bride

29 June 2014 9:31 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

There have been numerous interweaving and not so interweaving plots during this inaugural season of "Penny Dreadful," but there have been two constants.  The first has been the search by Sir Malcom (Timothy Dalton) and Ms. Vanessa Ives (Eva Green) to save Mina (Olivia Llewellyn) from the clutches of a vampire demon.  The second has been the systematic haunting of Doctor Victor Frankenstein (Harry Treadaway, Jr.) by his first creation (Rory Kinnear), a vindictive son who brutally demands a bride from his creator.  If the series finale told us anything it's that creator John Logan had no intention of dragging these story lines out any more than necessary.  More so, Logan appears to have a lot more in store for "Dreadful's" unexpected group of flawed "heroes." Two of the series' best performances have been from Green and Dalton.  Their characters have behaved like two adversaries forced to grit their teeth »

Eva Green is getting most of the attention, but another "Penny Dreadful" actor is hitting it out of the park also: Billie Piper as Brona Croft. Sadly, Ms. Croft isn't well, and in this new video author/historian Matthew Sweet explores the history and effects of consumption.

A profoundly unsettling new saga, "Penny Dreadful" completely reinvents literature’s most terrifying characters, including Dr. Frankenstein, Dorian Gray, and iconic figures from the novel Dracula, who are lurking in the darkest corners of Victorian London.

Timothy Dalton, Reeve Carney, Josh Hartnett, Harry Treadaway, Rory Kinnear, Billie Piper, and Eva Green star.

“Penny Dreadful”: “I Believe in Everything”

23 June 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Another week of Penny Dreadful, another break with form, and another master class in on-camera freak-outs from one Eva Green. While I have to admit I’m a bit puzzled as to how this is all going to come to any kind of satisfying conclusion in next week’s finale (and maybe it isn’t), this week’s marathon possession was, as usual, cracklingly good gothic horror, gorgeously shot and beautifully performed.

This week’s action took place entirely inside of Malcolm Murray’s mansion, where the lovely and haunted Vanessa Side-Eyeves (Green) found herself losing her lifelong battle with whatever demonic force attached itself to her when she was just a young girl watching her mom have sex in the hedge maze. Apparently unleashed by her ugly-bumping session with Dorian Gray, this demon takes over Vanessa and seemingly for weeks on end the other men in her life prove »

‘Penny Dreadful’: Been There, Done That

22 June 2014 8:00 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

[This is a review of Penny Dreadful season 1, episode 7. There will be Spoilers.]

-

‘What Death Can Join Together’ is a remarkable installment of Penny Dreadful because even though most of the characters are off doing their own things, it still manages to tie them all together. ‘Possession,’ however, has the benefit of taking place in a single location with most of the main players fighting for the exact same thing yet the narrative feels more disjointed and plodding than ever.

As per usual, all of the performances are impeccable. Eva Green is disturbingly good at giving way to demonic possession, Timothy Dalton nails expressing both a desperation to save Mina and also regret for how he treated ...
