Critic Reviews for Penny Dreadful Season 2

All Critics (20) | Top Critics (7)

This dark, complex drama about good, evil and the supernatural in late 19th-century London won't easily welcome newcomers at this point, but it should nicely satisfy those who hopped onto the ride last year.

Poole is an intriguing evil, at the very least because she makes Logan's series into the rare female-led series not reliant on romance.

There was no skimping on horror, or on glittering performances.

These witches were definitely scarier than other versions we've seen lately. I'm not a fan of witches in general, but I think Penny Dreadful's take is really going to work for me.

"Fresh Hell" was a strong return to one of the most inventive and cleverly written shows on television or the internet.

It preys on your mind, giving you much to think about as it twists and turns its way down dark Victorian paths. It captures your heart. And, yes, it occasionally turns your stomach.

The second season's first two episodes have laid aside any doubt in my mind of a sophomore slump for this show. If anything, the return from hiatus has shifted "Penny Dreadful" into even higher gear.

Penny Dreadful is back to the business of raising goosebumps. And business is good.

Such is the allure of Penny Dreadful, taking these familiar characters from legend-and in my case, a misspent youth obsessed with vintage horror movies-and investing them with unnerving yet ennobling humanity and dramatically compelling desires.
