"Penny Dreadful" on Netflix Login/Join

We just finished this, which originally aired on Showtime. Wow, what a series. The acting is first rate, from the main characters played by Timothy Dalton and Josh Hartnett to the recurring characters, such as Rory Kinnear as the Frankenstein "monster." I was never before a fan of Eva Green, but she is just an amazing actress in this series and I'm surprised she never won an Emmy for it. It's one of those shows that seems to end too soon and makes you wish there were more.

Also a fan of the show, and I'm not normally into horror-type movies/shows.

This was a good show.

I like how the writers and producers decided on only 3 seasons after the 1st season got good reviews. Instead of dragging out the show like many others would, they kept all the episodes moving and relevant.

I binged the whole show over a few months a little while back. Very well done and great acting. The ending could have been a bit better, but overall, I really liked it.

Loved it. I am going to watch it again soon. Some cool guns in it too. The whole Dorian Gray thing really got pretty weird though.

One of my favorite scenes.

Just found this. On S2 now. Sometimes food. Sometimes just ok. Mina was a good story line. Don’t care for Frankenstein or Gray story lines.

Vanessa storyline seems to be getting interesting.

I liked how each season focused on one Mythical creature/storyline but always came back to Eva Green's character.

Finished season 2 last night. Worth a watch but not earth shattering.

Finished the series last night.

Season 3 had a lot more actions than previous seasons and it was my favorite.

Well worth a watch.

Ok. Got to the end. I didn’t know it was THE end. As in series.

In any case, it ends with another wtf Vanessa, gun and kiss. And what happens to Evil? Walked away or vanquished? Evil’s brother? What happened? I guess I’d like the closure to be more explicit.

I like the main story line and endured the side stories. But it seems unfinished to me.

The way I took the ending is that when Vanessa dies the Evil brothers are denied the other half they need to take over the world.

I am not sure but I was under the impression that whatever force was in Vanessa will be reborn at some point and that they will have to replay the fight again.
