Penny Dreadful Season 2 Posters

Penny Dreadful was one of my favourite new series last year (alongside Fargo and True Detective). It’s spooky, stylish, and really well acted. It’s one of those shows that could survive full on its camp (The Walking Dead, American Horror Story), but it elevates itself beyond Horror Soap Opera, and it’s terribly thrilling. Of course Eva Green is a wonder, but surprise performances by Timothy Dalton and Josh Hartnett, plus outstanding actors playing characters from literary history like Frankenstein, his monster, and Dorian Gray, make the series smart, beautiful, and masterfully macabre.

It’s also worth noting to anyone who hasn’t seen the show yet, that there is a moment in an episode where I shouted, “KISS HIM!” AND IT WORKED! WORTH WATCHING FOR THAT SCENE ALONE! My only disappointment is that it airs in the summer, and not in the fall when the weather matches the mood. But all the more reason to watch it all over again after the finale!

Season two of Penny Dreadful premieres Sunday, May 3rd on Showtime.

Rankin is a British photographer whose clean, smooth edges and sensual imagery has become his trademark. His presentation of the female body, and the things that make the female body even more inviting, like lingerie, are done with reverence. He makes the women he’s photographing look icon in terms of stature and beauty.

David Bellemere has managed to establish an instantly recognizable visual trademark in his photography in a very short time. Languid, long limbed ladies romping along a beach, across a chaise lounge, laying over a draped bed, filtered soft and ethereal and sensually mark his work, creating a dreamy reality not of this world. His recent work with model Martha Hunt, beautiful French actress Eva Green are beautiful examples of his developing style.
