Penny Dreadful

Does anyone watch this show? It's brilliant for fans of gothic horror like myself, really well done! I just adore it and would find it cool to know who else enjoys it as well, and what you like about it.

A great deal of my path and my work has been influenced by gothic horror, I find the energy presented through these depictions to be spot on.

Still in the first season here:)

The atmosphere of the show does feel bleak, but not bland(?) Not sure the word to describe it, maybe it is what is called "gothic":I

I've been meaning to but never gotten around to actually watch it. Couple of people have recommended it to me.

Yes, Auntie Noctifira, i am a big fan! Have seen season one and two on DVD. Very well thought out show. I love the characters in particular Dorian Grey and think they have made a good set up of Victorian London.
I look forward to the third season. I think Timothy Dalton is better in this show than he was back in the early 90's when he played 007. Sorry about the Auntie title, but that's how i see you as a wise, all knowing Auntie, lol and i love you to bits, but on a serious note you do seem very wise!

My mother loves this show. She is into anything gothic and everything London. I like it, I didn't think I would at first, because the first episode was very gory, but it grew on me. Plus I've been a Josh Hartnett fan from way back in the 90's.

Back in ther 1970s, I lived in Rotting Hill, London, and there was nothing better than leaving the apartment at night when there was a pea soup fog, and there was a comfortable (I mean this literarally) sense of my feet touching the fog-slime-water on the sidewalks.....

To misquote Sherlock, "Hmm! The fog is afoot."

Any Gothic story that has this "look and feel" wins.

PS. Out there in the world the original Goth movement has become as amazing now as has Steanpunk...They blend on occasion. I have part of the 1931 Frankenstein Lab (Karloff, Clive) and I hure will never plug it in to a wall socket, - something from the "mists of Frankenstein" will suffice.

Not yet, but I am a fan of the tarot deck that was created as a marketed deck as the one from the show.
Ill have to watch it later on in the summer, everyone I know that has watched it raves about it being pretty good.
