Penny Dreadful - Showtime show - first episode free on Youtube now

http://insidetv.ew.com/2014/04/28/pe...dful-premiere/

Need to give this show a watch. Looks like something I'd enjoy.

I would guess that it will be very... tittilating, since it's on Showtime and stars Eva Green, who has never been shy about taking her top off.

Rose Tyler!

Otherwise I'd not even take a look. Horror is not my thing.

If you subscribe to Showtime you can also view it On Demand. I thought the first episode was just average story wise. Visually there are some good set pieces but that alone can't replace good storytelling.

We too saw it On Demand. Thought it was just OK. I think True Blood has soured me on vampires and the like. So I don't think I'll be watching.

I really, really liked it. My only complaint was that the pacing was a bit too fast. That, however, is typical of pilots. I like the concept so much that I will probably stick with it even if it doesn't live up to the premise.

You posted this about the same time I started a thread for the pilot...
