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.

Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Shelly Johnson (as Madchen Amick) (credit only)


Ben Horne continues to slip deeper into insanity while Bobby tries to win his admiration by tailing Hank Jennings and photographs him in a drug dealing meeting. Cooper looks into real estate to buy in thought of staying in Twin Peaks and uncovers recent drug activity at a run-down house called Dead Dog Farm.

Cooper gets closer to clearing his name
30 May 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Still suspended Agent Cooper continues to try to clear his name; he visits a local estate agent to find uninhabited properties and a toss of a coin takes him to Dead Dog Farm, which he is told isn't as nice as its name would suggest! When he gets there he finds traces of Cocaine which he anticipates will match that found in his car, Meanwhile an increasingly mad Ben Horne has hired Bobby Briggs to follow Hank Jennings; he takes pictures which he gives to Ben... then Audrey takes them to Agent Cooper; what they show should be enough to clear his name and lead to the apprehension of the smuggling gang. Away from the case Nadine joins the school wrestling team, James learns that Evelyn Marsh is routinely beaten by her husband and Dick Tremayne starts to believe that Nicky, the young boy he is looking after, may be the devil!

This was another entertaining episode; it was good to see attempts to clear Cooper's name progress on two fronts... even if that wasn't Ben's intention when he hired Bobby. DEA Agent Denise Bryson's presence continues to be welcome as David Duchovny steals every scene he is in. That isn't to knock the rest of the cast; Kyle MacLachlan's portrayal of Agent Cooper continues to be great; I particularly liked the way his character inspected the scene at Dead Dog Farm; tasting the various things he found. Nadine's presence in high school continues to be amusing; it was great seeing her easily defeat the school's wrestling champion!
