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.

Interesting
26 April 2004 | by (Long Island, New York) – See all my reviews

VERY interesting documentary. There are alot of interesting things here that alot of celebrities talk about. Basically, Bette Midler is Mother Earth, and thanks to everyone polluting and ruining the Earth, she is sick and dying. I remember EVERYTHING that happened in this show, and even own a VHS copy. There were alot of segments, including sitcom segments that included the likes of Cheers, The Golden Girls, Married... With Children, etc... It's a very interesting special, with alot of celebrities who seem to like doing this. However, I still remember trying to make a difference for a week, yet forgetting to do so a week later. It seems as though we stopped caring about saving the Earth. I can remember having a huge talk in school about this.

Very interesting and Recommended.

RATING: **** out of ****
