The City Of Angels becomes a battleground in Penny Dreadful premiere

The City Of Angels becomes a battleground in Penny Dreadful premiere
TV Reviews All of our TV reviews in one convenient place.

“All mankind needs to be the monster he truly is... is being told he can.”

Like The Terror: Infamy, Penny Dreadful: City Of Angels is a spin-off (or, in this case, a “spiritual sequel”) in name only. Even with Penny Dreadful creator John Logan shepherding the series, very little of his original concept made the trip over from England to...

L.A. gets spooky in this new trailer for Penny Dreadful: City Of Angels

L.A. gets spooky in this new trailer for Penny Dreadful: City Of Angels

We saw a teaser for Showtime’s Penny Dreadful sequel series City Of Angels

earlier this year , with a demonic Natalie Dormer stoking the fires of a war for the soul of Los Angeles—and also maybe all of humanity—but there’s a neat trick in this new trailer. For most of its two-minutes, it plays like a prestige drama about a mysterious murder and the start of a potential race war in 1930s L.A....

The Penny Dreadful: City Of Angels trailer promises dark magics in 1930s L.A.

The Penny Dreadful: City Of Angels trailer promises dark magics in 1930s L.A.

Showtime’s new Penny Dreadful: City Of Angels may be set in the same universe of its previous gothic-horror fantasy Penny Dreadful, but there’s not a lot they seem to share, save for the existence of magic. Instead, creator John Logan has found a new muse in the racial and political tensions generated at a time when rapid technological and industrial change was transforming the landscape of...

Natalie Dormer to keep the old-timey thing going for Mel Gibson’s dictionary movie

Natalie Dormer to keep the old-timey thing going for Mel Gibson’s dictionary movie

Believe it or not, Natalie Dormer does in fact exist in the year 2016 along with the rest of us, even though she seems to spend high percentage of her workdays in period costume. Perhaps it’s that mysterious compulsion for old-timey clothes that attracted her to Mel Gibson’s long-planned origin tale of the Oxford English Dictionary, The Professor And The Madman.

In the Farhad Safinia-directed...

Margaery Tyrell is Westeros’ biggest badass—and the show can’t handle her

Margaery Tyrell is Westeros’ biggest badass—and the show can’t handle her

Being a feminist and a fan of Game Of Thrones has often been an exercise in the mutually exclusive: For every scene of a dragon queen emerging from the flames, there has been a close-up of yet another dead prostitute, her body trussed-up and pierced with arrows. Though each season of the show has launched an armada of think pieces about Game Of Thrones’ “woman problem,” season four saw it...
