Penny Dreadful – Afterthoughts

My friend jennanigans did this funny and excellent write-up of the show Penny Dreadful. Here, she outlines the characters and themes, of the Victorian era, we all love so much.
Enjoy!

Late to the Theater

Recently, Penny Dreadful, Showtime’s marvelously dark and twisted paean to all things Victorian and bloody, ended after three seasons. All accounts indicate that the creator, John Logan, intended for the show to span three seasons, and wrote it thus. However, the strange discordant ending and loose plot threads left many fans unsatisfied. It felt like a beautiful dream that ended just before the best part, and all I have now is sweaty just-woken confusion and an irate UPS person banging on my door.

For all that the end was unsatisfying (I’ve already written 4 fan fictions in two weeks with my preferred resolutions, because I had opinions), I still adore it. Today’s entry is going to sing the praises of Penny Dreadful, with a minimum of discontented grumblings. After all, it got so many things right!
