Feel asleep during the first episode. Expected more action and supernaturalness tbh.
klutzy_girl 23rd-Jun-2014 03:08 am (UTC)
Catch up because a lot of supernatural shit and action been going down since then.

The storytelling has tightened up in a really cool way. I didn't really care for the first episode either and I figured I'd probably drift out sometime during this first season, but it's gotten so good.

It's a slow-building show tbh but I can't speak for others. I loved it from the first episode which happens very rarely.

I didn't like the first episode either, but I'm glad I stuck with the show, I know really look forward to it

Holy shit that was terrifying and awesome at the same time. Hopefully they actually do find Mina.

I wonder what the hell season two is going to be about.

If Ethan could exorcise Vanessa, why didn't he all along? We also learned nothing new about him except he got fucked, so I still have all sorts of questions about that character.
h0tfuss 23rd-Jun-2014 03:27 am (UTC)
He didn't know that he could. I think it was a character moment for Ethan, the fact that he suddenly understood that he had that innate power in him. It's not like anyone else could have taken the necklace and done it. It'll be interesting to see how that overlaps with him probably being a werewolf.
firestarter_007 23rd-Jun-2014 03:39 am (UTC)
i think he was able to do it because he feels love for her like, he truly cares and understands the whole ~devil inside thing.

and when i say love~ i don't mean sex or a relationship.. i think he feels for her IDK maybe i'm thinking too much lol
sir_mikael 23rd-Jun-2014 11:26 pm (UTC)
I do think that was totally out of nowhere and would have wanted to see some consequences for him right away about that BUT I have a feeling he gave up some control of his wolfyness in order to do that. Like he gave her his medallion which I'm betting is keeping his inner monster in control. He chose to save her from her monster but in the process surrendered to his own. In the promo for the next one you see his hand start turning werewolfy.

All that said, I have no idea how he knew latin.

So Dracula has Mina, I guess? I feel like the show has done a very good job of distracting us away from realizing that Dracula is the one big bad we haven't met yet. But I mean, her name is Mina Murray. We all should have realized this from from the beginning.

I adore everything about this show (and Eva is becoming the best actress on television), but the fixation on sex is so fucking weird.
julietislimited 23rd-Jun-2014 03:19 am (UTC)
I mean isn't it suppose to be an erotically charged show? I feel like that was in the all the descriptions I read.
h0tfuss 23rd-Jun-2014 03:21 am (UTC)
I don't mean that the amount of sex is weird (it's a Showtime show after all). I mean I think it's a little too easy that all of the evil stuff is a result of sex. Like Vanessa literally fucking satan? And having visions while fucking Dorian? I just don't think that's creative or enlightened, you know?
gigglyvapidslut 23rd-Jun-2014 05:43 pm (UTC)
but wasn't that Dracula with Mina in the burning house (when Malcolm went looking for Mina while Dorian and Vanessa were fucking)? also he came looking for Vanessa and jumped out of her window?
chaos_organised 23rd-Jun-2014 03:16 am (UTC)
god eva is so good.
also victor was amazing w/ the priest.
ready for ethan to wolf out next ep
eatmydustbinns 24th-Jun-2014 12:48 am (UTC)
I lol'd when Victor called the priest a ridiculous man
julietislimited 23rd-Jun-2014 03:16 am (UTC)
thoughts:

- ethan and victor remain my favorites. those two are just precious ♥
- i don't love malcom but the actor who plays him has an amazing voice, love listening to him talk.
- thought i'd like vanessa/dorian but idc.
- really don't care about the creature and his future bride.

Timothy Dalton was Bond!



He's supposed to talk you out of your pants.
littleorcs 23rd-Jun-2014 03:38 am (UTC)
More importantly though, he was Simon Skinner in Hot Fuzz

cokinetic 23rd-Jun-2014 03:56 am (UTC)
I can't believe he's 70 years old!
sandvich 23rd-Jun-2014 03:28 am (UTC)
mte about Malcolm. I'd listen to Timothy Dalton read me the phone book.
dyaus_screaming 23rd-Jun-2014 03:17 am (UTC)
I need to catch up, I have them all recorded.
julietislimited 23rd-Jun-2014 03:18 am (UTC)
also if I can get bloody fucked up sex scenes I don't see why we couldn't get a dorian/ethan one. I'm just saying, it could have been wonderful and it had better at least be a deleted scene.
missyxxmisch 23rd-Jun-2014 03:18 am (UTC)
Is there any more peter/mina stuff? Guessing no? I dunno...everything else is so boring.
h0tfuss 23rd-Jun-2014 03:29 am (UTC)
There was a little bit of Peter backstory.
firestarter_007 23rd-Jun-2014 03:19 am (UTC)
all the awards for Eva plz.

Sir Malcolm is the biggest jerk UGH

ugh caliban is such a whiny fucker, i can't wait for his bride to reject his ass.

#fuckcaliban #justice4proteus
h0tfuss 23rd-Jun-2014 03:28 am (UTC)
I just LOL at him lurking around, especially since no one seems to realize that he doesn't look like an actual person.
chaos_organised 23rd-Jun-2014 03:35 am (UTC)
#justice4proteus
YESS
frenchoral 23rd-Jun-2014 04:23 am (UTC)
I lost it when he killed Van Helsing, I hateeeeee him
ke77we 23rd-Jun-2014 05:10 am (UTC)
I hated him so much after he killed Proteus, and then I began to feel for him, and then he killed Van Helsing. And then creeping outside Sir Malcolm's. Dude, fuck off.
war_machine_rox 23rd-Jun-2014 05:25 am (UTC)
I liked him until he killed Van Helsing

Way to ruin shit Caliban >:(
insecuredesign 23rd-Jun-2014 05:36 am (UTC)
God I fucking hate his ass. And you know his "bride" is going to reject him and I will bathe in his pathetic crying.
#justice4proteus indeed. Will never get over that and him murdering Van Helsing. Proteus the most. He was going to have 10 friends!!!

eatmydustbinns 24th-Jun-2014 12:51 am (UTC)
I was hoping Caliban's bitch ass would barge in the house going, "Excuse me, where is my wife" and then have Vanessa royally fuck him up whilst telling him he is foreveralone because he's a prick.
sandvich 23rd-Jun-2014 03:29 am (UTC)
I love this show so much but Dorian's hair is driving me nuts. Y'all know Oscar and his lovely locks never would have stood for that flat-ironed mess.
h0tfuss 23rd-Jun-2014 03:38 am (UTC)
I say this a lot, but it's so obvious to me that they're cribbing the version of Dorian Gray from the recent Ben Barnes film. Dorian never had flowing dark hair before that. Penny Dreadful has an overall similar look to that movie so I don't think it's an accident that I keep going back to the specific style of the movie.
ke77we 23rd-Jun-2014 05:12 am (UTC)
That film was so awful though. Of all the films to look to, smh.
sevendamnit 23rd-Jun-2014 03:33 am (UTC)
I love this show! It's so intense! And unsettling! The acting is always superb.

I do hope we get some Ethan and Dorian scenes next season. I wasn't expecting that AT ALL, but now that they put it out there, I'm like, "Okay, and... anything more? Anything? ANY THING? No?" :(

I liked the way we're seeing Victor's undercurrents.

noonewears 23rd-Jun-2014 03:36 am (UTC)
Not going to lie this might be the only reason I keep watching this tbh.
h0tfuss 23rd-Jun-2014 03:42 am (UTC)
I think there's potential to see more of that from Dorian. It's not like his sexual encounters with women are coming from a place of sincerity.
sevendamnit 23rd-Jun-2014 04:19 am (UTC)
I thought the same, even just in Dorian's expressions during THE scene.
firestarter_007 23rd-Jun-2014 03:48 am (UTC)
NGL when the spirit was talking to Ethan and 'exposing' him
i was OOOHH DO TELL gossip little devil~ LOL
this show has grown on me and is quickly becoming a favorite
lionessrawr 23rd-Jun-2014 03:39 am (UTC)
Ethan's character is such a tease, and it works wonderfully.
I cant believe there's ONE ep left...
jennyfinnly 23rd-Jun-2014 03:52 am (UTC)
now that i know where josh has been hiding, i shall marathon this
firestarter_007 23rd-Jun-2014 04:03 am (UTC)
the show starts slow IMO but then it's really good
