Penny Dreadful has always been amazing & mostly the kind of "scary" stuff & characters we 60-75 yr olds grew up loving...Frankenstein, Dorian Gray, Bride of Frankenstein, a werewolf, witches, tarot cards & freak shows & a cast of awesome actors! Now Season 3 brought us Dracula, an old-time insane asylum, American Indian mysticism & magic, but unfortunately & heartbreakingly an end to the series, which caught us by surprise. The only things I didn't like about the series, which has a lot to do with my age, were the battles with the devil & demons that the 2 best reasons for watching the show (Vanessa & Ethan) had to contend with. Classic horror can be updated & amaze us with jaw-dropping special effects to scare us without bringing modern horror's warped idea that the devil has to be trying to steal souls! There's certainly enough true evil in the world today. Why bring the devil into what's supposed to be entertainment? Shame on Hollywood for starting this new trend in horror with 1974's The Exorcist! And shame on Showtime for letting the devil steal the show & Vanessa's soul, because this series could have lasted forever & been much better than HBO's stellar, one of a kind masterpiece for television. Showtime's series will never come close to HBO's!
