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.

20-something comedy with a difference
6 February 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This unusual UK comedy show followed in the steps of 'Friday Night Armistice', 'Spaced', 'Jam' and 'Smack the Pony' in taking its place in the late-night schedules of Channel 4. Focusing on the deadbeat characters of Mark and Jeremy ('Jez'), flatmates without a hope of succeeding in the world, we see their world through their own eyes and through their own minds. It is a refreshing approach which makes the show funnier, sharper, and more interesting to watch.

Mark (a character not a million miles away from Arthur Dent in Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy) is hopelessly in love with his office colleague Sophie (Olivia Colman), but naturally he can't make her see that, and in fact he is so rubbish at everything she's unlikely to want him anyway! Jez thinks he's the greatest person in the universe when in fact he is probably as unlikely to be a social success as Mark. His girlfriend Nancy (Rachel Blanchard) is a model-looking girl with strange ideas.

'Peep Show' isn't as off-the-wall as earlier shows which have aired in the same slot but in the two series showed so far, is coming along nicely. It has the usual preoccupations of twenty-somethings at its heart – sex, booze, girls, money, more sex – and David Mitchell and Robert Webb are excellent as Mark and Jeremy.
