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.

Steven Moffat is a genius
28 August 2004 | by (Dublin, Ireland) – See all my reviews

This was an absolutely incredible series. I don't think I've laughed as long or as hard at anything else. Steven Moffat the writer is currently doing Coupling (also brilliant) and previously wrote Press Gang. I was reminded of an episode of Joking Apart when watching the last of the current series of Coupling (series 3) the concept of 'Jeffina' reminded me of the episode of Joking Apart when Mark has concussion and is visited by a personification of his penis ("see you Saturday for Baywatch???").

I find it totally stupid that dead in the water comedies like 'Last of the Summer Wine' continue to get greenlighted for new series but this was canned after two years.

Someone needs to get this out on DVD. Soon.

P.S And now it's available at http://www.replaydvd.co.uk/ If you loved this comedy, support this site and help get series 2 out...

and P.P.S. Steven Moffat is still a genius as any of us who have been privileged to see his Doctor Who episodes will testify.

Looking forward to Jekyll.

P.P.P.S. Jekyll was Brilliant.

P.P.P.P.S Series 2 coming shortly- check http://www.replay-shop.co.uk/ and if you want to see the sheer effort Craig Robins put into getting this out check: http://www.replay-shop.co.uk/perils.htm

P.P.P.P.P.S- The brilliance continues with Sherlock...
