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

The zany and slightly troubled members of a family try to make it through life as comedy ensues. In the center of the mess is Cameron, who is happily married to second wife Liz, with three children. Cameron's teenage son from his first marriage has officially moved in-and has a little-well, a lot-of trouble becoming comfortable in the new environment. Cameron's sister Sharon seems to have the perfect life-although her husband, Don, are both in denial about their sex-less marriage. Then there's Jenna, the gorgeous little half-sister who had her life shook when she became a single mother. Jenna doesn't really know what's good for her, and she always goes for the bad boys like Tommy White, while the nice guys like Wylie Blake love her. Equally problem-filled Colleen and Wendal, the parents of the siblings, try to keep their family in order...somehow. Colleen, though, is admittedly uptight and impulsively judgmental. Even though they're all a little nuts, the Halbert family hangs in there... Written by Anonymous

Embrace the New and Unknown
25 March 2006 | by (ventura, california) – See all my reviews

I realize that everyone has an inherent right to express their own opinion. And, I guess if you don't like Sons & Daughters, you really don't like it. My concern is that Mr. Goss and Mr. Holly are pioneers in the wasteland of current, every-shows-a-reality-show network television. As such, they are bound to present new and heretofore unexperienced moments in television watching. History teaches us that we, as a species, fear the unknown. Therefore, we really don't want to know about it at all, let alone experience it. But, Fred and Nick are giving it to us anyway. And it's wonderful. If you read the ABC blog and the IMDb boards, the show is cultivating a base of excited, open-minded individuals thankful, ecstatic even, for the fresh, new and exciting television brought to viewers by Sons & Daughters. For those afraid of television that breaks the formula, I beg you to give it another chance. Keep an open mind. If we didn't have pioneers, would the west have been settled? Would Hollywood have been built? Would television have been born? And even if you still hate Sons & Daughters, perhaps you could allow for the fact that this show may just open the door for a whole new format of network situation comedy or dramedy, as the case may be. And you may just fall in love with those shows looming in the not-to-distant television future. Subsequently, you would have Fred Goss and Nick Holly to thank for your future favorite flavor of network TV. So, try to set aside your ignorance and your fear and embrace the new and the unknown as the catalysts to positive change. And, in those regards, in the here-and-now, give Sons & Daughers a chance. (This goes for you, too, ABC!)
