This 3rd season has been great so far. I really enjoyed episode 4.

Since the Penny Dreadful Series is over, done - THE END... there's no need to be concerned about Spoilers.

 

 

I'm wondering if anyone who watched the Penny Dreadful Series wants to discuss the Occult presented in the show?

Tarot, Spirits, Blood, Spells, Witches, Witch Burning, History, Religion, Destiny, Path, Lucifer, Shamanism, etc.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Some Themes that encompass the Characters:

 

Dr. Frankstein's Arc as Creator...

Vanessa's Faith...and Fate....

Sir Malcolm's role as Father and Explorer...

John Clare's Humanity...

 

Science.

Death.

Immortality.

Feminism.

Sex.

 

 

Brona / Lilly's Evolution...(Who had some excellent monologues throughout !)

Well I don't get showtime, so I was not very familiar. But with the above description and it being on Netflix I'll just have to watch it now :). Sounds right up my alley. Spoiler away I won't peek until I'm through it. :)

I had no idea what I was missing! The writing is astonishingly good. Loving it.

And there is a resounding theme of "know thyself,". Which is very significant to me at the moment. Synchronicity...
