Penny Dreadful brings exorcisms and Eva Green back to TV

Illustration for article titled iPenny Dreadful /ibrings exorcisms and Eva Green back to TV

Here’s what’s up in the world of TV for Sunday, May 3rd. All times are Eastern.

Top pick

Penny Dreadful (Showtime, 10 p.m.): Showtime’s Victorian monster mash is back, friends! And so is Eva Green. And so is Dr. Frankenstein, and Eva Green, and memories of massacres past, and Eva Green, and Scott Von Doviak’s regular coverage, and something else, what was it? Oh right: EVA GREEN. In the meantime, check out Genevieve Valentine’s pre-air review, which is in-depth, insightful, and describes Eva Green’s incandescent eyes as a “gimlet-eyed stare,” which is about as perfect as Eva Green herself.


Also noted

The Last Man On Earth (Fox, 9:30 p.m.): After hoping and praying to find more people, Phil “Tandy” Miller has murder on his mind for the first season finale. Caroline Framke said she’d look the other way, but she lied. It’s her job to look.


Game of Thrones (HBO, 9 p.m.): In the fourth episode (the last of the leaked), Jon Snow goes up against Melisandre. We hope the two of them together will make them both 1000% more interesting, but will leave the details to Erik Adams and Myles McNutt.

Veep (HBO, 10:30 p.m.): President Meyer stops off in Iran to negotiate the release of a detained American reporter. Kate Kulzick is sure Selina is well equipped to handle the nuances of such a trip, nothing at all should go wrong, no sir.

Silicon Valley (HBO, 10 p.m.): Tonight’s episode is called “The Lady,” so it’s safe to say that shit goes decidedly sideways. Les Chappell is excited even if he knows that the only lady tonight belongs to is Eva Green.

Regular coverage

Bob’s Burgers (Fox, 7:30 p.m.)
The Simpsons (Fox, 8 p.m.)
Brooklyn Nine-Nine (Fox, 8:30 p.m.)
The Good Wife (CBS, 10 p.m.)
Mad Men (AMC, 10 p.m.)
Happyish (Showtime, 11 p.m.)


Classic coverage

The Simpsons (2 p.m.)

Classic Eva Green

“Eva Green desperately needs a coffee and a cigarette. Though she retired to her hotel suite at 9 the night before, the French actress hardly slept a wink.”

What else is on?

Watch What Happens Live (Bravo, 9 p.m.): A special new time for a special new guest pairing: Cecily Strong and Nene Leakes.


Family Guy (Fox, 9 p.m.): This is the 250th episode of Family Guy.

Secrets and Lies (ABC, 9 p.m.): The first season finale features some shocking reveals, secrets, and dare we say, lies.


Madam Secretary (CBS, 10 p.m.): Another first season finale features flashbacks, international crises, and teen dating.

Keeping Up With The Kardashians (E!, 9 p.m.): “Kylie’s wish of owning a home comes true faster than she ever thought.” Are we thinking of the same super rich and famous Kylie, E?


Wolf Hall (PBS, 10 p.m.): We take our eyes off this show for one second and Henry’s already sharing sneaky glances with Jane Seymour! Life, man. If you don’t stop and look around every once in a while, you’re gonna miss the defamation and final descent of Anne Boleyn.

Sunday Night Baseball: New York Yankees at Boston Red Sox (ESPN, 8 p.m.): Just FYI: we will never let a Yankees/Red Sox game go by unnoticed.


Casino Royale (Esquire, 7 p.m.):

In case you missed it

Other Space: Molly Eichel is taking a weekly look at Paul Feig’s Yahoo series, and she’s only on episode two, so there’s still time to catch up, get moving! It’s what Eva Green would want.


Oh, who are we kidding, we have no idea what Eva Green would want, and that, above all, is why we love Eva Green.
