TV Time: Penny Dreadful Season 3 Premiere


Showtime has released the full Penny Dreadful season three premiere online, a week ahead of the much-anticipated third season premiere on Sunday, May 1 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. Now I am a season behind and I now need to catch up, but if you are caught up here is Episode 1 of Season 3.

For those of you unfamilar with Penny Dreadful it is the story of Explorer Sir Malcolm Murray (Timothy Dalton), American gunslinger Ethan Chandler (Josh Hartnett), scientist Victor Frankenstein(Harry Treadaway) and medium Vanessa Ives (Eva Green) unite to combat supernatural threats in Victorian London.  Penny Dreadful was created by John Logan and is names after The penny dreadful stories published in 19th-century England that sold for a penny.  The subject matter of these stories was typically sensational, focusing on the exploits of detectives, criminals, or supernatural entities.

In the Showtime adaptation it is similar to Alan Moore’s League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.
