No, this isn't a post promoting a torrent or download! Showtime has followed in HBO's footsteps, kind of, by releasing the pilot episode of their new show, Penny Dreadful, and it's now available to stream online for free (ala Silicon Valley on YouTube -- I'd link to it but the network has since made the video private). The kicker of it all is that the show doesn't air on TV until May 11th, but it's available online right now! There is no catch, no signing up, no logging in to a Showtime account -- nothing! Well, actually, you need to
sign over rights to your soul input your birthday and be over 18 to watch, but that's it!
I just finished watching it and it was pretty damn interesting! Penny Dreadful reimagines the origins of classic horror stories and monsters . . . I won't go into any further detail than that, just to avoid spoilers. You should definitely check it out if you're a fan of the horror genre, though! I definitely got a couple of good jumps in while watching!
Also, you can't go wrong when the cast includes Eva Green, Josh Hartnett, and Rose Tyler Doctor Who alumn, Billie Piper -- who was missing in this episode, but that's fine since it didn't finish introducing the rest of the cast either (really though, it's just one other guy, I think).
I feel like the show knew my geeky little heart would be sad that Piper was missing and as an "I'm sorry," it gave me Josh Hartnett's butt! Who has been aging REALLY well, by the way! He doesn't look like a sickly, coked-up little twink anymore...

Looking like the muddy full-frontal'd Khal Drogo we all wished we'd seen on GoT, meet Captain
The last time we saw Zach McGowan he was flaunting his rather large-while-flaccid cock at us in Showtime's 'Shameless'. He's now over at the Starz network, starring in a show about pirates – heh heh butt pirates heh heh – called 'Black Sails' and guess what? His wang is flopping around again! And his character is called Captain Vane. Hashtag #VANEWANG!
I very much like this trend, and I hope we see more period-set hyper-macho drama shows with all kinds of wang. I think it's quite possible we'll be seeing more of Zach as Captain Vane because Starz was the home of 'Spartacus', another show that didn't shy away from showing the peen.
For mobile users, here's the same trailer in non-Flash form:
KEEP IT UP, ZACH!

Last night on Shameless, (a very good show which I don't happen to watch, airing Sundays on Showtime) there were some gratuitous cock shots all before the episode hit the 10 minute mark! I decided to hunt it down after hearing about it and create some gifs for your viewing pleasure. The actor in question is Zach McGowan. I've never heard of him before, but with a dick like that, he's certainly on my radar now. I love Emmy Rossum's expression. I'd be impressed too if I were that close to it. I mean, it's not just me, right? It looks really big from that side angle. And it bounces so nicely in that third clip. Follow @harveywalker Follow @ClosetCaseRoman
