Penny Dreadful Season 2 Gets a Full Trailer and an Air Date!

Exciting news, fellow Dreadfuls! Penny Dreadful returns to Showtime on April 26, and they’ve released a new trailer for the season! We got a teaser earlier this year:

But now Showtime has released a full-length trailer for season 2. And my, my, it looks dreadfully wonderful.

This season, it looks like we’ll get a proper villain. Evelyn Poole, also known as Madame Kali, (Helen McCrory) will be a season regular and is set to be the main antagonist of the season. We’re going to see characters meeting who didn’t interact last season, and there’s going to be some witchcraft-ery. It looks like we’ll also see Ethan grappling with that whole werewolf thing this season and get a glimpse at what life-after-recreation is like for Brona Croft.

I’ll be blogging season 2 again here, so catch up on season 1 if you need to, then join us!

Open Thread 2


What’s up? Seen anything on the Internet worth sharing this week?

I’m starting to get pumped for the new season of Doctor Who myself, and I’m hoping Peter Capaldi brings it.

Here’s a very nice teaser trailer:

As always with these open threads, anything’s fair game as long as it’s nice. So discuss blogging, talk about your week, exchange chess strategies, share links, or whatever.

I’ll not be around an awful lot this evening, but will be checking in as I’m able.

Best Cast Comments Ever

Non-Game of Thrones fans, I apologize in advance.

Everyone else, you should watch this if you haven’t seen it. It is 15 minutes long, and worth every minute. I watched the first four minutes to make sure the video was good and get some info for the headline. I ended up watching the whole thing.

That is a very thoughtful cast.

I threw our routine off a little last night. I posted early by accident, and the surveillance post needed to stay up all day. We’re back to posting at our usual time now. We’ll have a Batman post on Wednesday, and, if things go as planned, something from an entirely new contributor on Thursday.
