Trivia

As creator John Logan had never written a television series before, he did not produce a spec script, but instead wrote the first two episodes directly. When he had the opportunity to pitch it to Showtime, he also wrote a 40-page Bible exploring the characters and story, with the network eventually buying the show. See more »

Best new show on TV?
13 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Penny Dreadful is to horror what Game of Thrones is to fantasy and Walking Dead is to the zombie apocalypse - its all about the characters and story lines that are only possible when set in their unique universes.

This show is amazing. Everything from the sets, to the acting and directing... Eva has turned in two Emmy nomination worthy performances already.

Even if you don't like horror - go check this show out. Such a unique twist on the classics. I can't tell you how excited I am about TV right now - people are finally starting to get it... there is a market for mature, gritty, raw, and complex characters set in worlds that were once considered nerdy and childish.
