Explorer Sir Malcolm Murray, American gunslinger Ethan Chandler, scientist Victor Frankenstein and medium Vanessa Ives unite to combat supernatural threats in Victorian London.

My Rating: 5 out of 5 stars!

IMDB Rating: 8.2 out of 10 stars!

Rotten Tomatoes Rating: 93% Positive!


The first season opens with Sir Malcolm’s daughter having gone missing, he is looking for her. During his quest, with the help of Vanessa Ives, they hire an American gunslinger Ethan Chandler (John Hartnett), but what they find lurking in the underground of London is not what Ethan expected.

Set in London during the 19th century, it creates quite the playground for Horrors most notorious literary characters.

I am certainly interested in the show, and I will absolutely watch it all the way to the very end. Rotten Tomatoes has a rating of 93%. I rated this 5 out of 5 gems (stars), great show, pace is good and the writing is solid. I really enjoyed this show so far, and I’m only in season one, can’t wait to see where the seasons go!
