Penny Dreadful isn't set to premiere until next month, but, luckily for all of us, its network Showtime has already posted premiere episode for streaming, and it's available to watch in full. If you're not aware of what exactly Penny Dreadful actually is yet: Created by Skyfall screenwriter John Logan (and executive-produced by Sam Mendes), the series aims to interweave the origin stories of classic horror characters from literature, such as Frankenstein’s monster, Count Dracula, and Dorian Gray—amongst others. It stars Josh Hartnett, Eva Green, Billie Piper, Timothy Dalton, and Reeve Carney.

Check out the premiere episode above. Penny Dreadful will premiere on Showtime on May 11, at 10 PM.
