    Starts next Sunday on Showtime and stars Natalie Dormer. I'm excited for this one. LOVE Natalie. (yes still bitter about her GOT ending)

    I stopped watching about 3 or 4 eps in, first season. Just wasn't for me. Although I did love Eva Green's performance. But I've read this season is a new story, new characters, new setting, so I'm back to give it a (new) try.


    Didn't we all :(.

    i watched the first one a couple of episodes, and deleted the SP. This looks to me much better.

    Loved the first one, hoping I at least like this one.

    Data (Brent Spiner) and Nathan Lane — should be interesting :)

    Liked the 1st episode. Looking forward to where this goes. Beautifully shot. And it looks like the Showtime app on the ATV was upgraded to 4K/DV. Looked fantastic! Your turn HBO!!

    DV was a nice surprise. Now I’ll be streaming it vs recording it every week.

    I don't remember seeing anything on the ATV 4K Showtime app in 4K/DV. This is a new show so I guess that is why the app was upgraded.

    Watching the first episode, I’m reminded how Robert Moses divided neighborhoods when he built his expressways in NY. (Though a different timeline than this show. Moses is also the reason why the Brooklyn Dodgers moved to LA)

    Not having any idea about previous series or stories, I went into this with no idea what to expect. It's weird! But I kind of loved it. Can't wait for more.

    Same here. Didn’t watch the earlier seasons as I had no interest in the London 1800”s(?) setting, but the LA 1930’s setting interests me.
    Nathan Lane was excellent in the 1st Episode.
    (How did they get Johnny Depp to look so young? :))

    Can we get this thread renamed to a Season Thread with spoilers?

    We have at least one actor from the initial Penny Dreadful in City of Angels:

    Rory Kinnear - IMDb

    We watched the first episode. It was definitely different from the first story, but I liked it. I'll miss Eva Green, but Natalie Dormer appears to be a worthy successor.

    So what did everyone think of episode two?
    I really like the main kid. I've never seen him in anything before but I believe his performance and think he emotes the character very well. And he's nice to look at. Why does he not want anyone to know it was him that shot his brother? His other brother already knows? It seems the only people he would care about that don't know is his mother and sister.

    The only people who know are his brother and his partner. If it became known in the Mexican community, I suspect his life expectancy would be measured in hours if not minutes.

    And if the rest of his family found out...well, he would no longer HAVE a rest of his family.
