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.

Woody and Kelly argue once again about the difference in their monetary status. Kelly wants to live in a house purchased by her father. Woody, not wanting any Gaines money, wants them to live in his old apartment as that's all he can afford. They compromise, which shows them that one side might be more correct in their outlook than the other. Meanwhile, Rebecca's father, Navy Captain Franklin E. Howe, comes to Boston for a visit. A tough as nails man and father, he demands that Rebecca, who has screwed up her life in Boston, move back to San Diego into her old room at their house. Apparently, he has controlled her her entire life, including providing her with an allowance. He expects that Rebecca will put up a fight and demand to live her life in Boston as she sees fit. Captain Howe has an ulterior motive for his visit to Boston of which Rebecca is unaware. If she knew her father's true motive, it would change the entire nature of their disagreement.

Daddy's Little Middle-Aged Girl (#11.10)
2 July 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Rebecca's father came because of her last letter. He also fins out that she has lost the liquor license, flooded the place and also burned the bar down. So he says she should come back home to live with her parents. She gets mad but then agrees to move back, but he said it was just a test to see how she would react and now he can see she can do it on her own, but now she agrees to stay only if he gives her 50% raise on her allowance.

A fun episode. Woody is a bit more of an idiot than he usually is but luckily not too much of him. I liked Rebecca's plan and how she made it with her mother!
