It looks like SHOWTIME may have finally gotten my subscription. Not a knock on them, but I usually wait for the DVDs or Netflix. Their new series, Penny Dreadful, looks to have all the players, in front of and behind the camera, that warrant my attention. Check out the synopsis and cast list below. 

Synopsis: In Penny Dreadful, some of literature's most famously terrifying characters -- including Dr. Frankenstein, Dorian Gray and iconic figures from the novel Dracula, all brilliantly reimagined in a whole new light -- have become embroiled in Victorian London. The series stars Josh Hartnett (Black Hawk Down), Eva Green (Casino Royale) Timothy Dalton (The Living Daylights and License to Kill), Reeve Carney (Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark), Rory Kinnear (Skyfall), Harry Treadaway (The Lone Ranger), Billie Piper (Doctor Who, Secret Diary of a Call Girl) and Danny Sapani (The Bill).

The series is a frightening psychosexual thriller created, written and executive produced by three-time Oscar® nominee John Logan (Hugo, The Aviator, Gladiator) and executive produced by Logan's Desert Wolf Productions, along with Oscar winner Sam Mendes (American Beauty, Skyfall) and Pippa Harris (Revolutionary Road, Call The Midwife), both of Neal Street. Of the eight episodes, the first two will be directed by Juan Antonio Bayona, who helmed The Orphanage and the acclaimed film, The Impossible starring Naomi Watts in her Oscar-nominated performance.

 Not much to go on from the trailer, but I like the talent backing this thing up.  Will have to set my dvr!

Eva Green? Then you know we're getting some nudity. May have to check this out, you know, for scientific purposes

Eva Green = yum. Can't wait to see her badass in 300 2.0. The new 300 trailer, btw, was shown during my viewing of the Hobbit. Not sure why it wasn't posted on Mania. Eva Green has to be one of my favorite obsessions.

...and oh yeah, I'll be watching this show religiously. Not sure why Josh Hartnett got so much hate in the past. He was awesome in Lucky Number Slevin, Black Hawk Down, and Sin City

Meh... And as I finally removed the Comcast's super sucking siphon from my wallet. Probably won't be watching it anyway.

Eva Green is the ONLY reason to watch CASINO ROYAL.
