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.

A great coming of age show, not as cheesy as "Saved By The Bell"
8 December 2004 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

I must admit that i wasn't the biggest fan of "Boy Meets World" when it used to air on TV during the 90's, only recently i borrowed Season 3 from my friend & have been watching it over & over again, there isn't any cheesy dialogues in this, the reason i'm saying this is because I used to be a huge fan of "Saved By The Bell", but watching that show now you can see that there are a lot of pathetic & cheesy episodes & I also noticed that Kelly can't act well. Boy Meets World is more realistic & something more that you might be able to relate to. Ben Savage as Corey Matthews was a good actor for his age & in my opinion is equally as good as his brother Fred Savage from " The Wonder Years ". William Friedle as Eric Matthews was probably one of the better characters because he's supposed to be really dumb & plays that well. Rider Strong as Shawn Hunter is also good, he adds to the shows, everyone else is great too, but i don't wanna post a huge review. I love the scenes when they actually show Corey & Shawn or Corey & Eric fighting, i don't mean verbal they actually start pushing & shoving it's so realistic, to me that adds to their great acting it looks all so real. A great show its not the funniest but its a classic. 8 / 10
