It's not every day you decide to go back and revisit an old favorite in the realm of television, but this week proved to be that way for me, because it seemed no better time than to rewatch Penny Dreadful. If you haven't watched that amazing series yet, I highly recommend it, with its spooky Victorian atmosphere and its unique homages to classic monsters like Frankenstein, Jekyll and Hyde, the Wolf-Man, Dracula and more.
