Penny Dreadful
1x01 Night Work
With Game of Thrones over for another year, here's what I'm hoping can be televisual methadone: much-anticipated, good-looking series from the creators of Skyfall (writer John Logan, who creates and writes, and director Sam Mendes, who exec produces) set in Victorian England about Dracula and Frankenstein and all that kind of stuff existing together. Interesting first episode, but it's clearly only just getting going, so we'll see. It would help if the direction didn't use some of the same tricks multiple times...
