Airing Tonight: Showtime’s “Penny Dreadful” (5/11/2014)

According to the show’s Wiki entry “Penny Dreadful is an upcoming horror TV series created for Showtime by John Logan and executive produced by Logan and Sam Mendes.” and while I do not know much about it outside of seeing the ookie spooky trailer, with my continually offering up broadcast posts about the kinds of shows my site and blog readers enjoy I offer up this announcement about “Penny Dreadful” airing its first episode this evening. Check out the poster below.

The cast sure has some interesting characters such as Dorian Gray, Frankenstein and his Monster so I am sure this will keep the fans on edge. I guess its safe to say that if you are enjoying “American Horror Story” so far that this show will be right up your alley. Of course you will need to have Showtime as a premium channel subscriber on your cable network in order to see it or to set up its streaming app. At the time of this shows premiere there does not seem to be an app for the PS3 which I would have loved, but I believe you can watch on your mobile device or tablet as well as the home television and computer. Will you be watching this show at all? What are your thoughts on what you have heard about it? Let us know in the comments.
