Vanessa Ives – Penny Dreadful

Vanessa Ives Penny Dreadful Cartoon

Vanessa Ives, played by Eva Green,  is a central figure in Showtime’s “Penny Dreadful” Series.  For those not familiar, the series puts all of famous monsters from literature (Frankenstein, Dorian Gray, Werewolf, Dr Jekyll, Dracula) in Victorian London (yet in this season, the central characters have been pushed out to their own story lines outside of London in many cases).

Eva Green’s portrayal of Vanessa Ives can be both chilling and make you feel bad for her.  In this season, Dracula is playing the long game to get her into his lair.  Yet as good as the series is, it seems to get no love in the first two seasons from the Emmys.   And it hasn’t gone unnoticed (see here and here)

    I used to watch The Munsters. That’s about how relevant I am.

    I don’t think I’ve ever watched showtime. Oh maybe once at a hotel that offered it.

    I tried watching Penny Dreadful and just couldn’t get into it (and I wished I could’ve). Maybe I didn’t give it enough of a chance….
