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.

Storyline

Californian food tycoon Melville Horning dies, apparently drowned accidentally on a yacht cruise with his firm's four executive directors, actually murdered. The prime suspect, his security chief Jim Monroe, implores his former CSA colleagues to investigate, claiming jurisdiction as the recent machinations in the firm, probably inside trading, not only affected stock prices but also US export. Frank and Jane work out what's with a recent TV interview, allegedly live, the yacht cruise, each director's possible motives and the fifth executive who actually succeeded as CEO. Meanwhile good son Nick gets into trouble by trying to help his foolish brat sister cover up her reckless college fund speculation. Written by KGF Vissers

Another Jane Doe investigator episode
23 September 2013 | by (southwest US) – See all my reviews

Lea Thompson stars AND directs this middle episode (timewise) of the Jane Doe detective series. She and partner Frank (Joe Penney) get caught up in a murder where the timeline doesn't make sense. David Groh (was Rhoda's TV husband in the 70s !) is "Melville Horning", shown as the evil CEO, who goes over the side of a boat, and since everyone was drinking, no-one is sure exactly what happened. Keep an eye out for Helen Slater (from the "Where have they Been" file) is Stella. Viewers will know her from "The Secret of My Success" with Michael Fox. When the body turns up (again), Jane Doe is called in by an old friend to try to put the pieces together. Dorian Harewood is the head of security who gets caught up in this, but he keeps showing so much attitude towards the people that are trying to help him, that it gets annoying. I understand that they are trying to show the tension involved in a murder case, but you'd think the investigators would tell him to back off, they are the ones trying to help him.

Entertaining story, as long as you buy into it without looking too closely. The family issues that come up are actually a little distracting from the investigation. They use this "family issues" device again in the "Ties that Bind" chapter, and it was also a distracting in that story.
