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.

And the moral of this tale is....never congratulate a friend on the size of his son's winkle
18 June 2007 | by (England) – See all my reviews

Larry David could, to coin an old phrase, cause trouble in an empty house. At a pool party thrown by fellow restaurant-financier Hugh Mellon, David commits two errors which will prove painful in their fallout. Firstly, he decides to use the off-limits house toilet and, secondly, he mentions Mellon's son's winkle to him in conversation.

A great episode, there's Richard Lewis' insistence that he came up with the expression "The (blank)from hell" and a nanny that is simply looney-tunes.

8 out of 10. Not one of the best episodes but clever and funny nonetheless.
