I REALLY hate this greaseball alt rock dude they cast as Dorian Gray. Why is this always the look they go for? I want Dorian Gray to be legitimately, disturbingly beautiful. Like really young Jude Law, Jonathan Rhys Meyers in the late 90’s, Michael Pitt, cherub faced monsters! Not the lead singer of Fuel!
And speaking of lead singers, doesn’t Frankenstein’s monster of the opera look look like a goth Shawn Ryder?
This show teeters on the precipice of utter trash thus far, like pulpy, confused, hammy trash belying it’s namesake, the ‘penny dreadful’ serials. I am really interested to see how they try to get out of the middle of this mess and turn it to face itself ruminating on the production of fear and horror and all its ephemera.
I’m hoping this is the whole point of The Grand Guignol theatre.
But Ava Green really is a marvelous monster girl, I just wish there was more room for her and we could open up her stories more instead of always following sad werewolf men.
@lipstickmata you were right, it started to crumble a bit at episode 3.
it didn’t turn into the “eva green and timothy dalton vampire snarkathon” show that i was hoping for tbh
it was all so close to interesting and i see how people are into it but it wasn’t for me to my dismay
(and yes please to dorian being a cheekboned pillow-lipped trashmonster)
