Penny Dreadful, Ep. 2.01, “Fresh Hell” trades vampires for witches but keeps the blood flowing

17 hours ago | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Penny Dreadful, Season 2, Episode 1, “Fresh Hell”

Written by John Logan

Directed by James Hawes

Airs Sundays at 10 pm Et on Showtime

Season one of Showtime’s Penny Dreadful was a gleefully gruesome gothic experience, firmly rooted in pulpy sensibilities and clearly influenced by Alan Moore’s The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. While it was not an altogether solid season of television, it had a ghastly charm, reminiscent of lurid Hammer horror films of the past.

The first season saw a rag-tag group of Victorian-era Londonites, including the demonically possessed Vanessa Ives (Eva Green), American gunslinger (and secret werewolf) Ethan Chandler (Josh Hartnett), and Dr. Frankenstein himself (Harry Treadaway), doing battle against ultraviolent vampires. The group banded together to embark on a quest to rescue Sir Malcolm Murray’s (Timothy Dalton) lost daughter Mina. Season one climaxed with Sir Malcolm realizing his daughter, now turned into a bloodsucker, was lost forever. »

'Penny Dreadful' Season 2 Premiere Recap: Vanessa Turns from Hunter to Prey

3 May 2015 1:01 PM, PDT | buddytv.com | See recent BuddyTV news »

I watched the first season of Penny Dreadful out of morbid curiosity more than anything else. I'm a sucker for the look of Victorian London, so I figured it was worth a try. As the season progressed, I grew more attached to the characters and increasingly enthralled in Eva Green's performance as Vanessa Ives. Penny Dreadful appears to understand what a special thing they have in the character of Vanessa. The season 2 premiere, "Fresh Hell," is filled to the brim with Miss Ives as the second season is set up as a battle for her soul.

‘Penny Dreadful 2×01: Fresh Hell’ Review

2 May 2015 12:32 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

“Sometimes you wanna go, where everybody knows your name.”

Penny Dreadful comes screeching back into the station with ‘Fresh Hell,’ a promising, if uneven, season premiere that sees freaks of all kind seeking solace with each other.  For Ethan and Vanessa it means a small step toward commiserating over the terror of containing the inhuman within themselves.  For the creature Caliban it means whining about how lonely he is, hiding himself among the other weirdos in a wax museum, and projecting creepily onto a corpse(Brona’s) he hopes Frankenstein can raise from the dead to live as his bride, and for sir Malcolm it means a sad attempt at reaching out to his estranged wife and the mother of his departed children, both of whom paid with their lives for their bad luck in fathers.  Everybody’s hurting in the wake of last season’s knock-down-drag-out revelations and events, »

Penny Dreadful Season 2 Review

1 May 2015 3:04 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Two episodes were provided for review prior to broadcast.

The haunted Vanessa Ives (Eva Green) remains at the bloody heart of Showtime’s Penny Dreadful as it launches headfirst into its second season. Based on the first two episodes, the series remains as scary, sexy and spine-tingling as before the break, but new threats and altered circumstances promise to add new flavor to an already tasty concoction of supernatural thrills, dramatic twists and Victorian ambience.

Most pressing out of those new threats, as was teased by the trailers and plot synopses ahead of time, is the unveiling of Madame Kali (Helen McCrory), aka Evelyn Poole, as a sadistic, Elizabeth of Bathory-esque mastermind, in communication with Lucifer and devoted to tormenting Vanessa until such a point as she is ready to become the bride of Satan himself. In order to carry out this mission, Evelyn enlists the help of her coven of witches, »

Penny Dreadful Season 2 Review: Something Wonderfully Wicked This Way Comes

1 May 2015 12:20 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

When Showtime's Penny Dreadful arrived last year, it seemed -- at first -- like another tired rehashing of Victorian horror lit. How many times can vampires, Frankenstein's monster, and werewolves be adapted at this point? But very quickly, Penny Dreadful (created by John Logan) set itself apart by not only creating a kind of super-goth team-up (sort of like a Victorian Avengers), but by exploring these familiar stories in completely new ways. [caption id="attachment_451555" align="alignright" width="350"] Image via Showtime[/caption] In the first season, the group's patriarch, the explorer Sir Malcolm Murray (Timothy Dalton) essentially opened up his home as a halfway house for wayward supernaturals. In it he housed his adopted daughter of sorts, Vanessa Ives (Eva Green), the show's heroine, who struggles against demonic possession, as well as Ethan Chandler (Josh Hartnett), an American coming to terms with his werewolvism. Dr. Victor Frankenstein (Harry Treadaway) also sought emotional shelter there, especially from his creation, »

Penny Dreadful Season 2 a “make-or-break season,” says John Logan

1 May 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | ChannelGuideMag | See recent ChannelGuideMag news »

“It is our make-or-break season, and we’re going for it.” So said John Logan, creator and executive producer of Showtime’s Penny Dreadful, at a press conference for the show’s second season earlier this year. The Victorian era thriller, featuring some of literature’s greatest supernatural characters, finds Vanessa (Eva Green) and Ethan (Josh Hartnett) forming a deeper bond as the group — including Sir Malcolm (Timothy Dalton), Dr. Frankenstein (Harry Treadaway) and Sembene (Danny Sapani) — unites to banish evil forces. Meanwhile, Dorian Gray (Reeve Carney), The Creature (Rory Kinnear) and Brona (Billie Piper) are all waging battles of their own. … Continue reading →

Review: 'Penny Dreadful' Season 2 Amps Up the Evil, Eroticism and Evil Eroticism

29 April 2015 8:13 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

When "Penny Dreadful" premiered last year, it felt like a show building to something grand. Fun, scary and unafraid to introduce unexpected relationships, John Logan's first foray into television was art-house horror with a camp attitude. Eva Green rose above it all as an extraordinary presence — and prime target of a demon who'd kidnapped her best friend as bait — but the rest of the cast carried the weight of the horror series quite well in support. Season 2 looks to be mix of something similar, but now that we've already gotten to know these characters, the focus on the villain has increased dramatically.  We've known for some time now who the antihero would be: Madam Kali, more commonly known as Evelyn Poole (played by Helen McCrory), was confirmed as the "big bad" at last summer's Comic Con via a deleted scene from the series finale that hinted at her dark nature. »

TV Review: ‘Penny Dreadful,’ Season 2

28 April 2015 8:30 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Awash in gothic atmosphere and tasty performances, “Penny Dreadful” puts a face on evil in its second season, and feels considerably richer for it. That countenance would belong to Helen McCrory, who plays the head of a Lucifer-worshipping coven, eager to hand over the psychic Vanessa (Eva Green) to the Prince of Darkness. John Logan’s creation still feels haphazard at times in the way it throws together macabre figures — a bit like the Universal monster mashes of the ’40s — but viewers who spend less time dwelling on details and go with “Penny’s” crimson-streaked flow will more than get their money’s worth.

Just to recap season one, Sir Malcolm (Timothy Dalton) assembled a team to help him attempt to recover his demon-stolen daughter, including the aforementioned Vanessa, gunslinging American cowboy Ethan Chandler (Josh Hartnett) and a very young Dr. Frankenstein (Harry Treadaway), whose chickens — Ok, in this case »

Stream the Season Premiere of Showtime's Bloody Good 'Penny Dreadful' Now

21 April 2015 10:38 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

John Logan's "Penny Dreadful" is a witchy brew of Victorian hysteria, a mutant gothic inspired by Wilde and Shelley and stuffed with malevolently kooky spooks. Less everything-but-the-kitchen-sink than FX's "American Horror Story," the first season boasted superb visuals and cinematic subtly despite the crazy "anything goes" drama that unfolds. Ahead of its May 3 premiere on Showtime, stream the season 2 premiere, which already looks to be aggressively scary, silly and insane. For fans of extreme female performances, check out Eva Green's gotta-see-it turn as the elegant and chilly Vanessa Ives. Read More: Get Ready or Showtime's Supernatural Chiller "Penny Dreadful" »

Showtime Releases Penny Dreadful and Happyish Premieres Online Ahead of Launch

20 April 2015 12:42 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

As is their wont, Showtime has released the first full episodes from the new season of Penny Dreadful as well as the new series HAPPYish before their official premieres. The episodes are scrubbed of nudity (although the HAPPYish episode on YouTube requires an age verification, though I'm assuming it's for language), but Showtime is hoping that the sneak peeks of the drama (or comedy, as the case may be) will get you hooked. For those who are already Penny Dreadful fans, though, it's just a bonus look at the upcoming second season, which will premiere Sunday, May 3rd at 10 p.m. The series, which was a surprise breakout hit last year, follows some familiar characters from Victorian horror literature (and some new ones), but explores their supernatural plights in new ways. Penny Dreadful stars Eva Green, Josh Hartnett, Timothy Dalton, Harry Treadaway, and Rory Kinnear (in a fan-favorite role).
