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

Soup, an old crony/CI of Mac scares Sally and asks her to have Mac meet him at the "old place." When Mac arrives to meet Soup, a thug knocks out Mac; a note left in Mac's car claims "Big Shoes" followed Soup, and warns that Mac and Sally's house would be robbed that evening. But, Sally in charge of a costume ball, already made plans for them to choose costumes that evening and then, visit the home of Connie and Alex. The McMillans are not robbed but they walk in to find the safe of Connie and Alex wide open, with a very expensive-looking necklace still in the safe. Mac thinks the necklace is fake but it is supposedly authenticated the next day. Gossipy Sally learns many of their friends may be having financial and/or marital troubles. Mac is told that the necklace is real and it may be stolen at the ball. Mac tries to persuade Connie not to wear this necklace to the ball, but she refuses. Sally, as a black cat and Mac (famously) as a hot pink bunny with huge floppy feet, are en route ... Written by LA-Lawyer

Infidelity in society
23 March 2015 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

John Wayne got a lot of laughs appearing for a few seconds in a pink bunny outfit on Rowan&Martin's Laugh-In. I guess that was the inspiration for Rock Hudson doing more than a few seconds in a pink bunny costume. All part of the plot mind you as he gives chase to a suspected thief trying to steal a valuable necklace.

It all has to do with infidelity in the high society set that Hudson and Susan Saint James are mixing in when McMillan is not a hands on police commissioner. But as we know when crimes hit close to home as they do here among his friends there's no stopping the latter day Nick&Nora Charles from getting involved.

The object is a valuable necklace which may or may not have been already stolen and or pawned. Of course Hudson giving chase a suspected thief in a devil's costume in the bunny suit is quite a good sight gag. Those big feet were definitely not made for foot pursuit.
