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.

Quotes

Luc Johnston: [as Tru is leaving on their date] Are you okay?
Tru Davies: No. Really, I'm insane. Because I'm about to walk out on a date that's actually *working*. But it's just there's someplace I have to be.

Brilliant! (SPOILERS)
27 January 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is by far my favourite episode of Tru Calling. I watch it all the time. This is due mainly to the wonderful work done by Rachael Bella (Jen) and Melissa Lee (Amy). Both of them are simply amazing as two young women in love. They are sweet and affectionate together, and are a joy to watch. The scene where Amy gives Jen the necklace in particular is delightful. It doesn't hurt that Rachael Bella is one of my favourite actresses and this is the first role I saw her in. It's a shame that they don't have more scenes. Still, they do an excellent job of providing depth and characterization given the limited time they have. For example, Jen's wry, ironic comments when she talks to Tru.

What I adore is that it doesn't go with the usual clichés about gays/lesbians that most shows do. By the end of the episode, both Jen and Amy are alive and well and in each other's arms. It is also good because the truth about their relationship is what actually prevents a tragedy from occurring.

There are some problems to be honest. One scene that infuriates me is when Luc asks Tru how can she still be single. Gee, maybe she WANTED to be single, ever think of that, Luc? I hate it when people seem to think that a woman can't be happy or content unless she's in a relationship. Tru's apparent cynicism at the end also bothers me. There are also some plot holes (e.g. where was Amy in the original timeline?) but these flaws don't really detract from an otherwise great episode.
