When it comes to satisfyingly pushing the envelope of cable television, we all know that Showtime is king. This Spring, they aim to remind anyone who’s forgotten this fact, especially in the midst of ‘Dexter’ critics. The new series, ‘Penny Dreadful’, will take place in Victorian England and feature some of the most famously frightening characters ever found in literature (e.g. Dorian Gray and Dr. Frankenstein). With a cast led by the ever entrancing Eva Green, along with Timothy Dalton, Josh Hartnett, and Billie Piper, the show looks to have an interesting array of acting chops behind it! I love horror and the seductive yet creepy way that Showtime is beginning their marketing of the show gives me high hopes for the full content they’ll bring us. In other words, I had to stop seal!clapping to write this. See how much I love you all?!

Check out the new teaser trailer and let us know what you think!

‘Penny Dreadful’ is slated to premiere Sunday, May 11, at 10pm EST. We’ll keep you posted on any new tidbits or changes as they come.

Liam Hemsworth Upgrades From Miley Cyrus To Eiza Gonzalez. Can I Get An “Amen”?!

*gasp*

 

In case you haven’t heard already, Liam Hemsworth and Miley Cyrus are officially and completely donezo. No one cries. Except Miley, obviously, ha!

Okay, I’m not completely heartless, no matter how I seem in regards to Ms. Cyrus. I honestly do feel bad for her as I’m sure the split is her first major heartbreak; we all remember that pain. But, let’s be real, people. Liam moving on to my girl, Eiza Gonzalez, is a 100% upgrade worthy of confetti throwing.

 

Oh, God, yes.
Oh, God, yes.

 

I’ve had THE hugest crush on Eiza (read: spent more than a few hours creeping her Instagram account) ever since my mom tried to rope me into watching Amores Verdaderos last year. As far as telenovelas go, it was pretty awful. Not the acting, per se, but whoever wrote the original story (novelas are usually recycled from Latin country to Latin country) decided to throw every single trope in there to create the only mess. I mean, the secret lovechild? Became the adopted mother of her legitimate sister’s own secret lovechild, none of them aware of this until the end. Like…what, what, what?! It was ridiculous, but Eiza was gold as ‘Nikki’, a spoiled rich girl who falls in love with her bodyguard. Her personality off the set is what really attracted me though.

 

New couple canoodling! LIVE THE DREAM, LIAM!

 

So, not only is Eiza beautiful and talented, she’s also a total sweetheart and comes off much more mature than Miley. She (Eiza) knows what she wants out of life, continuing to calmly pursue it without making an ass out of herself. Miley, on the other hand, still has a lot of growing up to do which is likely what caused the breakup between her and Liam. Because, if you think about it, not a single one of us is surprised. Good call, Liam!
