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.

Trivia

This episode was broadcast a few months before the premiere of Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back (1980), and served as an early promotional vehicle for that movie. This is why Luke appears in the Bespin costume from "Empire", rather than the Tatooine outfit that was better known to "Star Wars" fans at the time. See more »

Quotes

Gonzo: [to Luke] Who's your tailor? I love that outfit!
