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.

Plot summary

For emotional impact this clearly gets a 10, but I give it only a 9 because of implausible character actions designed to heighten the excitement of the finale, and a weak, unconvincing romance between Kimble and Jean Carlisle (actress Diane Baker).

Kimble, Lieutenant Gerard and Fred Johnson all go to Stafford, Indiana, each of them with a mission. Johnson's mission leads to his undoing.

In this episode, we finally see the actual murder of Helen Kimble. We see who was there, how she was killed, and why she was killed. Lloyd Chandler (actor J. D. Cannon), a neighbor of Kimble's sister, plays an important role in having the truth come out.

The epilog is touching, and very fitting. Does Kimble go free? You'll have to watch and see for yourself.
