This Monday marked the 35th birthday of actress Eva Green. In general, her very presence in films and TV shows like Penny Dreadful fill me with anticipation. She is among the most interesting actresses currently working today. Everything she does has at least one scene of amazing physicality and dedication that makes you realize how fearless she is. At times, she outclasses those that are multiple Oscar-winning performers with demented enthusiasm. Even then, her actions aren't used as a gimmick, but something more complex. She is defined by her confidence and sexuality, using it artfully to lure us in to her twisted fantasy. It makes oddly more attractive.

Channel Surfing: The Exorcist - "Chapter One: And Let My Cry Come Unto Thee"

These are not ones that I care to write weekly recaps for and are instead reflections either on the episode, the series, or particular moments. This will hopefully help to share personal opinions as well as discover entertainment on the outer pantheon that I feel is well worth checking out, or in some cases, shows that are weird enough to talk about, but should never be seen.
