Critic Consensus: Though City of Angels' host of interesting characters would be better served if there were fewer of them, twisty plotting and superb performances are bound to satisfy Penny Dreadful devotees.

News & Interviews for Penny Dreadful: City of Angels: Season 1
Surprisingly tame for a show about racial strife, Nazis, and supernatural beings.
Had the series pared down its plotlines the characters could shine more, their motivations crystallize, instead of feeling like they're 20 characters in search of an exit.
The show has a more LA Noir vibe going on, but this is never fully explored. At the end of each episode, you're left feeling that they need to ditch the penny dreadful and pick up a blood-spattered Sam Spade novel instead.
Fans of the original are in for a big disappointment if they expect more of the same, but those coming in fresh will be greeted by a diluted supernatural element of intrigue.
The name Penny Dreadful comes from the cheap, lurid 19th-century publications, a tradition the original honoured. This is more like American Horror Story without the camp - or the chills.
