The Penny Dreadful Sandbox

Penny Dreadful

The new Showtime horror series Penny Dreadful needs no gimmicks. The writing, acting, production, etc. are already top-notch. However, in addition to that, there is a wonderfully open-ended sustainability to the show that they’ve set up.

They’ve already shown us vampires, ghosts (?), Frankenstein’s monster, and other possible creatures with an only partially-linear construct to the show, allowing for an anthology and main story arc hybrid format (think X-Files).

I see no end to the possibilities that lie ahead. Werewolves (if we haven’t seen one already ;)), water monsters, mummies, demons, zombies, giants, Jekyll & Hyde, Jack the Ripper, you name it. Not to mention the fact that they could dream up all kinds of original creatures of the night as well.

Stay tuned…

    I have one issue with the show. I CANT SEE A DAMN THING ITS SO FREAKING DARK.

  • Haha. And it’s not like you’re going to adjust the brightness on your TV every time just for one show, what a pain in the ass.

    With the exponential growth of technology though, it won’t be long before you can actually control preferences and picture and sound settings for your favorite shows like you would a video game, straight through your TV with your Comcast, DirecTV, Dish or whatever service.

    Right?? I had the same issue with Sinister though. Basically we have to turn off all the lights and make sure the blinds are closed so we can see it. Makes for a spooky show, sure, but seriously. I’m actually excited for next week because they showed -gasp- DAYLIGHT scenes
