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.

Every episode of the first series ends with a different farewell message from the narrator and a "world record attempt" sketch.

"...the sames jokes and phrases are extremely repetitive and you find yourself becoming very bored..."
This is not exactly what I would call genius comedy, however, the first few episodes may have you holding your ribs in agony. It is a big risk relying your jokes on gruesomeness and funny accents, which leave the audience hysterical after a few times. There is a wide range of very funny characters in the first episode, feeding the population with great catch-phrases and jokes, but however, as the series moves on, the sames jokes and phrases are extremely repetitive and you find yourself becoming very bored. It is not always good to find that you already know what's going to happen next in a sketch, because it just becomes unfunny. If you want to like this, then I would advise you watch about three episodes - just a slight taste, because too much may spoil your appetite for this series. I myself like constructive and clever comedy, this is none of either, perhaps this is good for a more direct and younger audience?
