Editors' Spotlight

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

Ben Black is the host of a popular television program that aims to shock and outrage its audience, which continues to tune in even though most of them think they are 'above it.' But Ben's cruel persona as TV host often continues after the cameras are turned off and his ex-lover / current producer, his co-workers, and his lover are often at the receiving end of his barbs.

Great movie, and I'm American!
24 August 2001 | by (Evansville, Indiana) – See all my reviews

I only mention I'm an American, because this is clearly a movie made with Brits in mind. So, I can tell you I was surprised I liked it so much, and it's obvious there is a bigger cultural difference between the U.S. and the U.K. than I ever thought before. Clunes is a great actor, and he's awesome in this movie. I have liked him ever since I discovered British Men Behaving Badly. The story itself is just odd...very very odd...but it's very entertaining, with a nice mix of comedy and drama. The format of the story is very unusual, from what I have ever seen in the past, atleast. But, as I said, it all works out very nicely. Nicely done all the way around. 8/10
