Penny Dreadful Season 2 Episode 1-5

5 second plot:
Ep 1: Vanessa and Ethan are attacked by naked bald scary eye chicks. Afterwards Vanessa loses it, because she knows what's coming for her. The Creature finds a job. The Bride awakens.
Ep 2: The team has an old language meeting. Satan's little helper is making plans to get to Vanessa. Victor's newest creation is a quick learner.
Ep 3: Vanessa  tells Ethan about the time she found out she is a daywalker with a lot of power. She's the one the master seeks above all.
Ep 4: Frankenstein goes dress shopping with Vanessa. Dorian plays a game of ping-pong. The evil witches are closing in on Vanessa. Sir Malcolm tries to solve the demon language puzzle.
Ep 5: Satan's little helpers are making voodoo dolls. The good guys (and girl) prepare for battle, Frankenstein falls in love with the bride. Ethan is questioned by the police. And everyone seems to be having sex.

5 second review: These first 5 episodes are as shocking as they are boring. There should be more action and less talking. The shocks alone won't keep me entertained. And killing a baby might be a little bit too much, by the way. The costumes and sets (with a little help from the visual effect friends) are gorgeous.

IMDb score: 8,2/10
