Now that summer is here and you’re looking for some new shows to binge watch, might I suggest our current obsession show Penny Dreadful?  The recently completed 8 episode season is a definition of gothic horror, utterly devoid of camp.  The writing, acting, and aesethetic of the show is beyond anything you’ve seen on television before.  Each episode is its own vintage horror film, scary and sexy and edge-of-your-seat excitement.  Also it’s full of so many delightful things, like actually scary vampires, multiple inter-cast shipping opprotunities, one of the most important moments in KISS HIM! history ever, oh and did I mention Eva Green?  We’ve been fans of this willowy, dark French queen for years now, and on Penny Dreadful, through the amazing character she plays, she’s able to fully demonstrate just how amazing of an actress she is.  So, take eight hours out of your life and be deliciously scared/aroused/delighted, why dontcha?
