LGBT Themes In Horror

Last week’s Supreme Court decision that legalized gay marriage was something that had been coming for a long time.  At the time, 36 states had already legalized it.  Public opinion was in favor of it.  The question (more than anything) was “Could a state define marriage within its borders?”.  The …

Penny Dreadful Season 2 Teaser Trailer

Showtime’s Penny Dreadful was arguably one of, if not the best new show of 2014, and now we get our first taste of season 2 which won’t premiere until 2015. Though the 30-second clip gives away next to nothing, it’s enough to stir up some lingering questions you may have, …

Penny Dreadful – Demimonde (S01E04)

Up until now, I’ve simply enjoyed the ride that Penny Dreadful is taking me on. The scenery is spectacular, the dialogue wonderfully accurate for Victorian London (I’m assuming based on the myriad of historical romances I’ve read.), and the fashion is appropriately dreary. I’ve been happily lost and tried to …

Penny Dreadful – Resurrection (S01E03)

So, here we are in week three of Penny Dreadful, and I’m still kinda sorta lost. OK, I’m totally lost. No, not in the respect that I can’t follow along; more like we still have no clue where they’re going with this show and some of the characters. Note: There …
