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.

One of Nickelodeon's finest moments.
23 January 2002 | by (PA) – See all my reviews

The Adventures of Pete and Pete is one of my all-time favorite shows ever! It had some pretty good (and weird) characters, and episodes that left me entertained for more! I miss this show so much! Why did Nickelodeon cancel it? Probably for more dumb Nicktoons sniffle, sniffle.

This show ruled! A perfect 10 rating for this timeless classic!
