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.

In my opinion,I would say on of Sideshow Bobs best,
2 July 2010 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

I would honestly say that I think that The Great Louse Detective is one of Sideshow Bobs best episodes (not his best that would either be Cape Feare or Black Widower).

When the Simpsons go to a spa someone locks Homer up in the steamroom and turns the steam up full blast,even though Homer survives he can tell someones after him and when he tells the cops they sign Sideshow Bob up for the job,much to the fear of Bart.
