I have to give it to the creators, their show lives with Burnham and will die with Burnham.

why have multiple personas in the first place?
In the first episode we saw her “whispering” to people and manipulating them on the spot.

oh the cast of the original was bliss...
when I first saw Peter KraftKrupp I thought it was the connection between the two series! I truly did!

the funny thing is Kurt was there when the Gangsters took the kid away. All he had to do is to try and follow them :D

The sailors were the best! drunk macho american sailors!
Peter CraftKrupp must be the most confused Nazi in the history of Nazis.
And this is what annoyed me the most... an honest and good man that decided to support the Nazis for whatever reason but did it with heavy heart. Mind you, to support them and lead them not Read more

I think the only reason they added the supernatural element (lol) was to justify the Penny Dreadful  of the title. They didn’t think much about it (or the rest of the story)

I LOLed at least 5 times during this episode:
1. When the councilman-of-all-cliches gave his evil speech
2.When that moron-of-a-lead talked about “building walls”
3. When Peter-the confused-German decides to support the Nazis (in one of the worst TV attempts to touch the issue of how Germans supported Hitler)
4. Drunk Read more

Those murders were such a promising start..
I am not American, we do not have this kind of churches here, so the only general impression I have is that usually they are means to make a lot of money and influence lot of people. And also they are hardcore. I had once a very interesting and final chat with an American, Read more

And what about the other sister of death? Poor thing seems depressed.. which I guess makes sense if you are ..well...death!
On a serious note (hah!) , I think the whole story is a mess cause they have no clue how to touch the Santa Muerte thing, since it is not just fantasy (like the Vampires or witches in the first Read more

let’s do it ourselves!
SPOILERS for episode 8

So that idiot who speaks perfectly English but with the thickest German accent (even when he talks with fellow Germans), is a member of the Krupp family. The Krupp family was a real thing, war criminals and all in both World Wars. No idea if our Krupp boy is based on a real Read more

Season finale?
Both Cush Jumbo and Delroy Lindo won’t return? bummer...
Well that was a bit of a mess episode..actually the whole season was, although the quality is there.
I have to admit the last scene made me laugh.
But last week’s scene with David Lee’s reaction to the food from that exclusive restaurant made me Read more

Danette darling, you are a true reviewer hero! I gave up on this show last week.
The writing is bad, the story is not interesting (which is an achievement considering the era), the male lead is a dull character and a “meh” actor and I am afraid Dormer is not Maslany and all of her personas come out like caricatures.
I Read more

Not good so far..not good. The premise is interesting but the execution is lacking. Don’t know if is the direction, the writing but for sure the biggest issue is that most of the actors are weak or miscasted. Lane is great but all the rest are not. Especially the lead who is really bad, really really really bad and a Read more

Werner, the most idiot/dumb/stupid tv character of all times.
Or just the writers cut some logic corner to offer us the scene where Mike ends him.
Bad writing..really bad writing, when Werner kept behaving like nothing really bad happened that couldn’t be fixed, I wanted to break the TV. Was that guy some kind of Read more
