News & Interviews for Penny Dreadful: Season 2
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.
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.
It's a gorgeous backdrop that's often a little short on canvas for the story it means to tell. But on the strength of its cast, the beauty of its design, and the sheer joy it gets from its homages, it's the sort of dreadful that's mostly a delight.
Penny Dreadful's ambition doesn't come from its ingenuity, but from its attempts to ground the most ridiculous gothic stories with grounded emotional resonance.
When connected with it, the viewer finds a divertimento that catches and in which it is very complicated to get bored. [Full Review in Spanish]
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.
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.
Audience Reviews for Penny Dreadful: Season 2
Dec 28, 2020This is Penny Dreadful's best season especially episode 7, little scorpion.
Jan 21, 2020All over the place. Like someone drunk put this together.
Oct 15, 2019Complicated, 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, 2019Wow, this show deserves all the nominations it never got and then some. Eva Green is just exquisite.
Oct 31, 2018Eva Green stands out is this seasons presentation, in a show that sets the standard for Gothic Horror powerful and compelling viewing.
May 23, 2018First two episodes were meh, the third was just abhorent.
Oct 07, 2017An improvement on the first season with great acting,superb visuals and scary vampires.
Aug 01, 2017High water mark of the show...best big bad and only slightly disjointed
May 08, 2017This is the show American Horror Story was trying to be, but failed horribly. Top notch acting by ALL the actors, top notch writing, top notch direction, scenery and costumes; the only bad thing about this series is that it's over after season 3!
Jan 29, 2017Season 2 ep depicts a woman placing a "demonic" or "anticross" on her forehead, so far this is my only problem as it isn't a proper satanic cross as I feel it is meant to be.
