Summary from IMDB: 

Explorer Sir Malcolm Murray, American gunslinger Ethan Chandler, scientist Victor Frankenstein and medium Vanessa Ives unite to combat supernatural threats in Victorian London.


This show made me shudder... oh, but I loved it. With a more adult content, we follow a group of really messed up people with deep dark secrets try to make things right by finding the daughter of Sir Malcolm. Of course everything goes wrong, but in a spectacular and evil way.

I binge watched this show while on quarantine. The only reason it took me so long was that I couldn't watch it with the kids around. There is sex and nudity, along with language. Also the dark content is definitely not child appropriate.

Each season became more and more dark, drawing me into a world of demons, werewolves and witches. I loved how the story weaved together some of the most infamous villains such as Dracula, Dr. Frankenstein and Dorian Grey.

I just can't say enough about how much I loved this show and I was sad to see it end after only three seasons.

Let me know what you thought about Penny Dreadful.


  1. I loved everything about this show! The entire asthetic and stuff was so down my alley, I knew I'd enjoy it before even seeing the first episode.
