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.
NOW I know where my 70s LP record came from! Although I'm fairly certain I never saw this special, I DO remember that darn record.....I listened to it all the time as a kid. Actually, I remember the tunes as being fairly catchy, and IMMEDIATELY recognized the song mentioned by the previous poster.
IMDb mentions no network affiliation, so perhaps it aired in syndication? (NOTE: I checked my LP, and it aired on NBC.)
The Sherman Brothers rarely messed up, and I don't think this special is horrible. I'm glad I kept all of my old records....now I'm going to dig this one out, and listen to those thirty-year-old songs.
