Today I finished Penny Dreadful, series that is absolutely amazing, and which reminds me a little of The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (comic, not movie) that now I have need to reread.
I like its dark and surreal atmosphere created with motives from gothic horror stories, poetic language, beautiful cinematography, and characters… complex, complicated, damaged, morally dubious and conflicted characters (just the way I like them). And all of them have something hidden that makes them interesting. Right now I’m not sure which one I like the most, even Malcolm, I both love and hate that guy, in one moment I want to slap him, in other hug him. Also in the beginning I couldn’t care less for Victor and Ethan and by the end of the season I fell in love with both.
And I absolutely love the way they create one dysfunctional family.
Patiently waiting for new season, and hoping we’ll see Ethan’s father because I have a feeling that that guy is even worse father then Malcolm (maybe they can have some kind of a “who’s a worst father” showdown).
