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.

The extraordinary adventures of life within a computer, as depicted in one of the world's first totally-computer-generated series. The riotous humour, infinitely-variable action and scenery, and intelligent use of every computer reference known, combine to produce a stunning universe where good constantly fights the forces of evil. Dot Matrix and her brother Enzo, plus thousands of friendly binomes, live in Mainframe, which is plagued by viruses Megabyte and sister strain Hexadecimal. Guardian Bob is sent from the Net to protect them, and soon makes it his home. Together, they must prevent Megabyte from taking control of all the systems. As an added complication, games being played by the mystical User invade the system regularly, and must be defeated, or else portions of the city are laid waste... This gives us a chance to see every genre of video-game ever conceived, from the point of view of the characters! When Megabyte finally manages to banish Bob, Enzo takes over as the city's ...

The computer animation in this is incredible, and way better than "Beast Wars" in my opinion. Actually, "Beast Wars" is really awful in my opinion. But this is about ReBoot - a great kids show with lots of "in jokes". Especially if you are a computer geek, you will get a lot of the computer references. But ReBoot spoofs everything from "Star Trek", to "The Pirates of Penzance" to "Army of Darkness", making it great for adults, as well as kids. Things really started to pick up speed when Enzo "grew up", everyone on the show got more personality, and the show got a much darker feel. Unfortunately, Mainframe Ent. ended the show in the 3rd season and won't be making anymore (with the way the show ended I don't think they could if they wanted to), so if you want to see anymore from Mainframe you will just have to watch Beast Wars (don't though).
