My internet is really intermittent where I’m at right now! But I’m going to stay on schedule and watch Penny Dreadful ep 9 tonight, the freaky Vanessa-is-possessed episode. I’m plugging away on line edits. Hope everyone is doing well :-)

I like Eva Green so much now. I just found out she was in Merlin… and so was Santiago Cabrera! I always stayed out of that show because the two leads were so unfortunate looking, like English gnomes, both with peaky faces and ears sticking out like jug handles.
Eva Green looks amazing even when she looks ugly. The way she twists up her face… wow.
Now that I’ve been thoroughly traumatized by the Vanessa backstory episode, time for episode six!
That reminds me of a part I wrote about halfway into The Constant Companion.
“I thought you liked horror movies,” Emanuel teased.
I’d grabbed his left arm to use as a blindfold so I wouldn’t have to see the gory death of the latest victim. We were sitting on a small couch in the corner of our bedroom, one we’d put against the wall tonight for the sole purpose of watching this movie’s rough cut. The director wanted the new Avert song for the title sequence.
“This one’s too scary.” I peeked above his arm. He’d paused the movie, and the freeze frame of the victim’s contorted death mask was blurry, therefore emotionally neutral. I was safe. I hugged Emanuel’s arm to my chest, just in case. “I like zombies and demons and scientifically implausible space parasites. Not the guy next door who flips out and sticks a fork in your eye. No thanks.”
Going on a trip tomorrow, and my internet access might be limited.
I stalled out about halfway through The Strain second ep, but it’s decent so far.
Watching both Penny Dreadful and The Strain at the same time is making me think about evil in genre. We (as in human beings) enjoy stories with absolute evil, we eat them up with a spoon, because fighting absolute evil is about as dramatic and pulse-pounding as you can get. But the evil itself is usually pretty bland if you look at it too closely. I remember groaning when I saw the second Thor movie where the evil guys are evil because… well, they want the whole world to go dark. Why? They like the dark. It doesn’t make any fucking sense.
Continued from Part 1. Spoilers for the entire first season under the cut. Lots of discussion of Vanessa because oh my god the seance.
