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.

A Woman's Perspective
7 December 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Wayne Robinson was a young boy who had been raised by his uncle since he was only ten or eleven. His uncle was one of those harshly religious men who didn't believe in saloons or any of those things, but when Wayne was finally old enough to drink, he went into a saloon to do just that.

Two other young men were there. One was Billy Griggs and he made fun of Wayne. Wayne, naturally, started a fight. He got arrested and his uncle had to pay a steep fine to get him out. His uncle, being the harsh man he is, whipped him good and hard.

Soon, Billy Griggs shows up in town over his horse - dead!

Going into this, you know the case isn't going to be cut and dry, and before long it becomes pretty obvious who the killer is. The story has a few turns in it, pointing to an unexpected person. Then it points to another.

Only one man died in this episode. Another probably will die soon.
