Showtime’s Penny Dreadful is a series about fighting one’s demons – whatever they may be – using a combination of characters from great literature and original ones.
The series opened as a tale of a man trying to save his daughter from vampires and gradually, subtly shifted to his surrogate daughter’s fight for her soul. It was, in short, a masterpiece of supernatural suspense.
Penny Dreadful: The Complete Series is in stores tomorrow.
David Lynch and Mark Frost created a landmark in television history when they produced Twin Peaks. Moments of staggeringly real emotion in a world that the word surreal is inadequate to describe. The search for Laura Palmer’s murder opened us viewers up to the possibility that television could be a unique experience and laid the groundwork for the great serialized and/or surreal shows that followed – without Twin Peaks there is no X-Files, for example.
Now the entire Twin Peaks story – including Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me – is coming to Blu-ray. The set will feature upgraded picture and newly produced and archival special features – including nearly ninety minutes of deleted/alternate scenes from Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me – all under the personal supervision of David Lynch. Twin Peaks – The Entire Mystery will be in stores on July 29th. For more details, check out the press release after the jump.
