In uncertain times, there is something comforting about the familiar.
Revisiting things that bring you joy can bring you a sense of relief...of safety.
So, based on my current activities, I must be living in uncertain times, indeed.
John and I recently launched a new podcast called Television Time Remaining
. On the podcast, we will be reviewing every episode of Mid-South Wrestling in order. Mid-South went off the air in 1987.
Stephe and I are working on a comic book project
featuring characters we created over a decade ago. I know these characters. They still talk to me. I can't wait to revisit them.
And, my binging of late has featured a passel of familiar characters in a new setting.
You see, I recently found Penny Dreadful
on Netflix and have dived back into the show feet first.
Echoing the success of League of Extraordinary Gentlemen
, Penny Dreadful
casts many of your favorite Victorian horror characters into a bizarre shared universe.
Dracula is there. So is the Creatre, Doctor Jeckyl, Dorian Grey and the Wolfman.
How they interact is the hook and I am hooked.
The show rotates around the mysterious Vanessa Ives. The is the dark eye of Penny Dreadful's
Ms. Ives is portrayed by this week's cheesecake. Please say hello, again, to Eva Green.
Ms. Green is mesmerizing as the troubled/possessed Vanessa and, if I have to be honest, she really does it for me.
Since her last appearance
in this feature, Ms. Green has appeared in sequels to 300
and Sin City
as well as Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children
A new season of Penny Dreadful
, set in 1930s Los Angeles has been announced. No word yet on whether or not Ms. Green will appear.
Let's hit the links.
