UPDATE:
This show...Showtime's Penny Dreadful

BONAFIDE HIGH-OCTANE GASOLINE DRENCHED VISUAL STORYTELLING.

A mish-mash of classical horror favorites come together in this slick and potent new show from Showtime.

Timothy Dalton man...where has this guy been?
He's a born actor, leave it to a new series to bring him out and put him back on display.

Josh Hartnett, reborn. Reinvigorated.

Once a matinee idol, the longer he acted the more diverse the roles he chose got.

He turned down Superman, he left Hollywood.

Now I know why he came back for this.

Eva Green.

Listen.

This woman was truly extraordinary in the Starz series "Camelot".

I first saw her dominate and seduce the movie screen in Bertalucci's magnificent and taboo "The Dreamers"...she has aged like fine wine.

Billie Piper...back from being a call girl in that charming show, but the real jewel is Harry Treadaway as Victor Frankenstein.

This guy is on fire.

There is a vitality and elegance to the photography, which gives it massive points to me, a confidence in the storytelling, in the first 2 episodes they have dealt with Dorian Grey, Frankenstein, Vampires, Jack the Ripper...all with a polished look that assures my inner visual critic that Sam Mendes is, in fact, charge.

Get on this people.

Sundays. 10PM. Showtime.

VoicesFILM Approves.
