Editors' Spotlight

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.

I Would Not Mind Seeing This Again
18 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Summertime TV fare used to include pilot episodes of show ideas that were not bought. "We'll Take Manhattan", if I remember correctly, was one of these.

I absolutely loved the main idea. Yes, (the show says) the Dutch did indeed pay some natives about $24 in beads for the island of Manhattan. But, according to an old something-or-other (a document on an old piece of leather? I forget), those Indians did not own Manhattan; instead, they were just visiting from another part of the New York area and laughed all the way home. So . . . the rightful owners of Manhattan were the original Indian tribe that did live there, and it so happened that there had always been a member of the tribe living on the island, and the current one was the tribe's chief, a wizened old man -- and the rightful owner of the whole island.

Very cute, and I've never forgotten it. But I don't know what a second episode would have been about. Perhaps, then, I understood why the series never was bought.
