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.

Storyline

House's ex-girlfriend Stacy Warner returns-not for House but to get help for her ailing husband, Mark. While House decides whether or not to take her case, Cuddy forces him to present a lecture to a class of medical students. As he weaves the stories of three patients who all present with a similar symptom, House gives a lecture the students will never forget - he discusses three past cases, one of which is more than meets the eye.

Quotes

Dr. Gregory House: [to the class] His MRI showed that the leg pain wasn't caused by the self-injection. It wasn't caused by an infection. It was an aneurism that clotted. Leading to an infarction.
Dr. Eric Foreman: [to Cameron] My God, you were right. It's House.

There's a Reason This One Won an Emmy
17 July 2006 | by (Anaheim, CA) – See all my reviews

I saw that this one won an Emmy for "Best Writing for a Dramatic Series" in 2005 and rushed through four episodes to get to it. Should have taken my time.

There are times you get too hyped for an episode and then you go see it and you think, "Gosh, it wasn't THAT great." I had worried that the same effect would happen here. I would watch it and then at the end I would go, "I could have written something better." In addition I would have had lost all respect for the Emmy voters.

Good thing it didn't happen.

Proof that David Shore is a scribe worth looking out for is how he handles the events in the story. Going through it, one can see that it's very easy to confuse the watcher. Yet the director and the writer capably navigate the jumble and emerge triumphant.

The story paces like a brilliant novel, where the story is manipulated at whim by the story-teller. I saw it a couple more times to find things I wanted to clear up, but I'm slow.

You might not love it, but you'll go "Dude, that was awesome!" at the end.
