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.
Paul O'Grady is one of my favourite comedians, I love him best when he's playing Lily Savage but even without the drag act the man is a genius with comedy. His teatime chat show does well in the ratings and deservedly so, it's always very entertaining featuring a great lineup of guests and fun and games. My favourite bit is when they play "guess the theme tune" using the organ. Paul also brings his dogs onto the show with him and even once brought his pet lamb in from his farm. The real star of the show though is Paul's dog Buster who is on more than his other dogs. I hope this show has many a new series to come as it's the best teatime offering for a long while and easily outranks that boring Richard and Judy show that Channel 4 have on at the same time.
