One of the more intriguing summer television offerings heading our way is Showtime’s psychosexual horror series Penny Dreadful, and in advance of its official premiere, the pay cable network has put the full episode online in its entirety to watch for free.  Created by Skyfall scribe John Logan in collaboration with executive producer Sam Mendes, the show takes place in Victorian London and finds some of literature’s most terrifying characters crossing paths.  All of the trailers thus far have been highly fascinating, and I’m definitely looking forward to checking out this full episode soon.
