Audience Reviews for Penny Dreadful: Season 2

  • Dec 20, 2021
    Penny Dreadful beautifully mixes a selection of classic horror and scifi characters into a single plot. But what I find deeply compelling about Penny Dreadful is that it confirms that the Devil is more than any of the other fictional horror character but does, in fact, exist. He walks just in front of our eyes in the form of a Nun talking about "sin" and "shame" to 6 years old girls. He exists because he's present in our imaginary and is implanted there in a very tender age. Hell is, for many of us, having to digest the trauma of child abuse in the form of religious indoctrination.

    Just great. Eva Green is incredible.
  • Apr 12, 2021
    Great but not as good as Season 1, plot takes a different direction with witches and Lucifer instead of vampires and Dracula. Feels a little disjointed from the first story.
  • Dec 28, 2020
    This is Penny Dreadful's best season especially episode 7, little scorpion.
  • Jan 21, 2020
    All over the place. Like someone drunk put this together.
  • Oct 15, 2019
    Complicated, intense and insanely scary. Incredibly good acting and a compelling story line. So glad I chose this for my Halloween watch this year!
  • Apr 25, 2019
    Wow, this show deserves all the nominations it never got and then some. Eva Green is just exquisite.
  • Oct 31, 2018
    Eva Green stands out is this seasons presentation, in a show that sets the standard for Gothic Horror powerful and compelling viewing.
  • May 23, 2018
    First two episodes were meh, the third was just abhorent.
