American Horror Story: My Roanoke Nightmare | S6-E1

By Dave Defino / 3 years ago

On the one hand, I am very excited about “My Roanoke Nightmare”. As a history buff, the idea that the talent team at American Horror Story are going to tackle one of the great mysteries of Americana, is nothing short of a pure thrill. On the other hand, there is the way they have decided […]

Penny Dreadful – Closer than Sisters | S1-E5

By Dave Defino / 3 years ago

I am having trouble understanding how a series that had such a great 1st episode has let me down with the following 4 episodes. The 5th episode of the first season of Penny Dreadful is called “Closer than Sisters”. This episode is Vanessa’s backstory. The entire episode could have been summed up in a 2 […]

Penny Dreadful Demimonde | S1-E4 Review

By Dave Defino / 3 years ago

The word “demimonde” is a French term from the 1800’s that describes a group of people considered to be on the fringes of respectable society (usually women), or a group of people who live hedonistic lifestyles, usually in a flagrant and conspicuous manner. This seems to fit in with the cast of character in Penny […]

By Dave Defino / 3 years ago

Resurrection is the third episode of the first season of Penny Dreadful. I suppose it got its name from the long story about Frankensteins first creation. After he killed the new creation he went on to tell us how Frankenstein ran when he first brought this monster to life. It has since been his sole […]

Penny Dreadful: Seance | S1-E2 – Review

By Dave Defino / 3 years ago

I must say, the first episode of Penny Dreadful had me hooked. It was well written, suspenseful, intriguing, and beautifully shot. The 2nd episode, Seance, was still beautifully shot. However, it flowed more like a mid season filler episode then episode 2. This was the type of episode intended to fill in some gaps the […]

Penny Dreadful: Night Work | S1-E1 Review

By Dave Defino / 3 years ago

I was very interested in Penny Dreadful when it first came out, but I didn’t have Showtime, so… As a lifelong low budget horror person, I felt a certain kinship to the Penny Dreadful. The term was originally used to describe cheap horror books published in Victorian England. They were sort of a cross between […]

Is Sleepy Hollow Season 4 nothing more then a Spin Off?

By Dave Defino / 3 years ago

Sleepy Hollow season 4 is not going to be the same show that fans fell in love with. In case you haven’t watched all of season 3, there are massive spoilers ahead… not that I am spoiling anything, the writers did that well enough on their own. For starters, Abbie Mills is gone. Abbie wasn’t […]

Gotham: All Happy Families are Alike | S1-E22

By Dave Defino / 3 years ago

All Happy Families are Alike is the finale of season 1 of Gotham. A lot happens in this episode, making it one of the better episodes in this “end of season” arc we have been in for the past few episodes. The episode opens with Selina warming herself at a trash can fire down by […]
