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.

Storyline

Mulder is approached by a former love interest, Scotland Yard Inspector Phoebe Green, who needs help on a case. To date, three British politicians have spontaneously combusted, burning to a crisp. There has been no trace of accelerant being used and little to connect the three deaths. Green is in the U.S. providing security to Sir Michael Marsden and his family and wants to make sure nothing happens to him while he is visiting. Mulder tells Scully that he wants to take care of this himself - somewhat to her annoyance - but she eventually finds crucial evidence that leads the to the killer. Written by garykmcd

Highly Flammable
21 September 2006 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

The episode Fire is a worthwhile episode which is worth watching mainly for two reasons.The villain Cecil L'Ivley and Mulders old flame Phoebe Green.The inclusion of both these characters is the making of this episode.Cecil L'Ivley is a great villain and his ability to conjure up fire for his own wicked needs is superb.The scene in the bar where the woman asks him for a light is fantastic.Trust me you gotta see it!Its interesting to see apparent jealousy from Scully as Phoebe attempts to re-ignite her past with Mulder.A possible love triangle you never seen coming!A skeleton in Mulder's cupboard indeed.It was also interesting to see Mulders fear of fire
