My Grandma, as many of you know, has congestive heart failure; her heart rate is down to 49 beats a minute and she has been feeling horrible this past week. Due to her rather disagreeable nature, I am the only one who will help her, which means I have been worn out myself. I am sorry. I wish you all a happy Mother's Day, and while I haven't even had a chance to watch the first episode of SALEM, Penny Dreadful (Eva Green, Timothy Dalton, Josh Hartnett, produced by Sam Mendes) airs its first episode tonight, and you can watch the first episode free, right now, at this link (the first episode on the left)! PLEASE BE AWARE: this is a dark series, like SALEM, and it's dealing with serious issues which may make some viewers very uncomfortable and lead to nightmares, so this is not one for the kids (this is just a trailer):
A single mother creeps out of bed, leaving her daughter, and goes down the hall, past some hanging blankets, to a room; she closes the door and gets up on a stool, so she's going to the bathroom. What you notice is that it is cold, then that her toilet is up right against a window; then you notice that she must need to defecate because it's taking so long. Some mysterious thing then grabs her from behind the window, wakes up the little girl, who searches for her mother and, going into the room, screams.
This is a fabulous set-up.
