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.

Did You Know?


During Ari and Gibbs' coffee shop meeting, the sweep of the camera back and forth shows Mc Murphy's Tavern. The Bar, that was the place setting for several shots from The JAG series as well as the final "closing" scene for JAG. See more »


Gibbs says that the victim lived in Georgetown, which is an old, urban, upscale, expensive, densely populated area in Washington, DC. First, it's highly unlike that a young petty officer would live in Georgetown or could afford to do so. Second, the fictional home in question is a modern, contemporary single-family ranch house with a five-digit number and a grassy lawn in a woodsy neighborhood with a curved street with little vehicular traffic and few pedestrians.

Climatic episode!!!
11 November 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Absolutely thrilling episode!!! Started slightly slow with the "come back" of DeNozzo after what happened last episode (with the whole Y. Pestis thing). Then while investigating a double murder, the team (more like DeNozzo) foil yet another attempt to kill them (lucky break). Ari is back (yet again) and I can feel how slimy he is and you can also feel that he was strangely focused on Kate seeing how he only wanted to kill Gibbs. Just when you think there might be a "thing" between Kate and DeNozzo after what Kate did when DeNozzo was ill, then BANG...plot thickens!!! A funny episode in general (especially when Gibbs has the little "spar" with the FBI guy about their ex-wife) but very sad ending. I wonder why they wanted or needed to kill her off? She was a late addition to start with and I thought she was great, especially with all the funny dialogues with DeNozzo who is always pushing her buttons I think i should leave it there...A MUST SEE!!!
