Hellboy II: The Golden Army

Watched: 9 February

Fun second episode that carries on where the first Hellboy film left off, with Guillermo del Toro once again putting Ron Perlman’s world-weary, snarky, cigar-chomping demon scrapper to good use. As you would expect the production design is superb – even better than the first film – and I liked the increased reliance on steampunk-inflected sets, outfits, etc. The plot is instantly forgettable, but never mind.
