Wild West gunslinger Ethan Chandler (Josh Hartnett) is recruited by sexy spiritualist Vanessa Ives (Eva Green) and explorer Sir Malcolm Murray (Timothy Dalton) for a mysterious rescue mission. It involves a lot of skulking around in the dark and killing mysterious creatures. Sir Malcolm Murray has a problem, his daughter has been kidnapped by powerful evil forces some kind of demon. This take place in Victorian London, 1891.
Here is a terrific series taking place in the jack the ripper era, like they do not have enough to deal with. They first encountered some kind of creature lurking in the dark. Penny Dreadful is inspire from characters mainly from some dark tales written by Mary Shelley, Bram Stoker and Oscar Wilde, like I would say a reboot of all those stories. At first the series takes its time to introduce the team that will battle the demotic creatures and the one that is truing to find the girl who is missing, that is the force of this show trying to find the girl and why she went missing. The series transport you in time in this gritty city at the time in London. The looks is authentic as it should be. Mt hot off the design production. The cast is just fine near perfection. Also you have this introduction of Dorian Grey (Reeve Carney), Dr Victor Frankenstein well you know who that guy is about. The creatures design are spectacular. Yes there will be blood and guts in this one. Great performance from the actors as well. Have fun with this on it is on showtime by the way.
