Editors' Spotlight

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.

Missing at funeral
25 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Since doctors Greene and Ross were such good buddies, best friends, why weren't Doug and Carol (nurse Hathaway) at Mark's funeral? I was so disappointed that they were not there. Just about everybody else was there. Even doctors Benton and Finch were there, and they had left the show as well. Doug and Mark went through so much together, helping each other out, playing golf and handball, going through rough times. I just don't understand it. With friends like that, what would keep a person from attending his "Best Friend's" funeral, especially the way Dr. Greene died. Could you tell me the circumstance that kept George Clooney and Juliana Margulies from making a cameo appearance during the funeral scene at the end of that episode? Please respond, I'd really like to know.
