Remains true to the name. It is a Penny Dreadful in every sense of the word. Well if anyone has ever read them. There were quite a few that became very famous. I actually like the mystery premise and they do well with twisting it through the plot. It weaves into dark little corners that one would never see in the daylight hours.
