I’ve wanted to try watching Penny Dreadful since it first premiered in 2014, but not being a Showtime subscriber I’d been unable to… that is until last week when I saw that it was now on Netflix. I’m not quite sure how I missed that, but it joined Netflix with the first two seasons earlier this month. And so the past two days have been spent drinking tea and watching the first season of Penny Dreadful.
I’m not usually one for horror, but this show has appealed to me since I first saw an ad for it. There are a lot of contributing factors as to why, but at first my biggest draw was Eva Green, one of my favorite actresses, and while she’s phenomenal in the lead she’s not the only amazing actor to make up the ensemble that is Penny Dreadful.
