Audience Reviews for Penny Dreadful: Season 3

  • Sep 03, 2021
    Just great. Eva Green is incredible.
  • Aug 28, 2021
    Lazy ending. Why not do that an episode ago. Why have the show at all.
  • Apr 12, 2021
    Good but disappointing, the end feels so rushed. The actual ending felt right but we got there far too soon. With all the character development and new ones being introduced it could have been going somewhere really interesting. Should have been a 4th Season, the last 3 episodes were like a race to the finish line.
  • Dec 03, 2020
    Felt like they ignored season 1 completely. They were hunting vampires to find Mina all through Season 1. Yet, Catriona Hartdegen(who pops out of nowhere), knows EVERYTHING about vampires, with no credit to her knowledge(bad writing). Frankenstein was an idiot and waisted the whole season by kidnapping and letting Lily go(he should of died by the Creature, or even Lily). The Creature was the only decent story throughout season 3. Wish they showed more of Ethan as a werewolf, which was a big miss for this show. Renfield was pure gold(the only good addition they made for season 3). Dracula, was poorly written(being the first vampire, should have at least shown his true form at least once). Overall, it felt they got lazy and didn't have anything good to finish the show with.

    Magnificent. Gets better season after season. Eva Green leads a cast who perform "out of their skins". Season 2 Episode 3 'The Nightcomers' is one of the greatest TV episodes full stop. I am in the process of watching the whole thing again for the second time. Join me!

    What a heart breaking ending. One of the most intriguing television series I have ever seen. It has extreme thought provoking scenes and dialogues, and man the ending is still haunting me. The final episode on the whole is the ending. Don't forget to watch it start to end the full 60 min. Perfect but tragic ending.
  • Apr 25, 2019
    Heartbreaking! I'm still waiting for a miracle.
  • Jan 28, 2019
    Quality production that shines to the last, fantastic cast, clever plots, great characterisations. It provides not only the thrills you would hope for but also some powerful emotional moments, Eva Green in particular gives a mesmerising performance.
  • Nov 13, 2018
    It's a scam, the story is a waste of time, nothing remotely close to scary, Imagine vampires have no special powers
  • Jun 03, 2018
    insultingly bad ending. avoid.
