IMDbTV Pick: Showtime's "Penny Dreadful"

The subtle trick Showtime's "Penny Dreadful is that it is far less about the blood, gore and the specter of gruesome death than the sharp pain and exhilarating pleasure of living, and the terror of feeling alone even in close company. Read our review in the May Picks section.

Storyline

Reverend Tom Holvak and his family--wife Elizabeth, teenage son Ramey and young daughter Julie Mae--battled to survive the Depression in the Deep South, sometimes with their love for each other as their only defense. Being the religious head of their Tennessee town wasn't enough to keep food on the table, so Tom farmed a small piece of land owned by the church to get by.

Sweet family drama
3 March 2006 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I saw most of this series on the Belgian public TV, (received by cable in the Netherlands) some (long) time ago, i liked it then, a bit idealistic, yes, but it's a nice change, if you don't like the type of TV series, where they constantly shout, or have canned giggles, or laughing, the series is mostly "spun" around the two boys, black and white,(Lance Kerwin) (with Glenn Ford as father of the white boy) who are good friends, no matter the situation, okay, the storyline is sometimes a bit "preachy" but it's very positive done, but that's why you should like it, in contrast to other series, where a lot of anger is displayed. I discovered that the series is not yet on DVD, the series doesn't have that much episodes, so i guess when it does come out on DVD, i will buy it, if it where only for the sake of sentiment, and it would be aFordable too i Guess.
