PENNY DREADFUL
May 8, 2016  | By David Bianculli

Showtime, 10:00 p.m. ET

 

Last week’s season premiere of Penny Dreadful was a wonderful hour. Parts were chillingly creepy, and other parts were usually heartwarming. And new characters were introduced, including a flinty therapist played by Patti LuPone – playing her own descendant, and demanding attention as instantly and commandingly as Eliza Dushku has this season on Banshee. Other new characters are classic, in more than one sense, as we’ve been introduced to characters from both Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde and Dracula. And at the center of it all, Eva Green is magnificent.
