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.

Did You Know?


The detectives in San Macros, Captain Alameda and Lieutenant Plato, are thinly disguised versions of Captain Stottlemeyer and Lieutenant Disher. Alameda has the same mustache as Stottlemeyer and Plato is Spanish for "dish" or "plate". Additionally, Alameda and Plato wear the same suits that Stottlemeyer and Disher are wearing in this episode. This is actually the start of a recurring trope (more common to see in the series of Monk novels by Lee Goldberg) that every police department that Monk consults for has equivalents of Stottlemeyer and Disher (the novels "Mr. Monk Goes to Germany" and "Mr. Monk Is Miserable" are good examples of this).

Monk reads the coroner's report, which as an official Mexican document would be in Spanish. Monk does not understand Spanish. We know this because he pulls out a Spanish-English dictionary and looks for the Spanish word for "Stop" as he is about to be rundown. See more »
