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.
This is seriously one of the funniest shows, movie, anything i have ever seen. If you didn't guess, it's about a gay robot. Not only that but he's a college student.
Nick Swardson is great as the voice of gay robot delivering hilarious lines in a robot voice. Most of which are stereotypes of gay people like how he loves penises, and also just perverted things like about Gay Robot wanting pubic hair installed and how a date he has later will let him comb his pubes. Nick Swardson also plays his field hockey playing room mate. Jon Glaser (also hilarious) plays the man who made gay robot. The reason he turns out gay is because Jon Glaser accidentally spills wine cooler on Gay Robot while he is being built.
It started out as a pilot for Comedy Central (which they later declined which is ridiculous because they allow crap like Mind of Mencia on). It's been up on Myspace for awhile now and if you haven't seen it, you definitely should. i've seen it at least 5 times and it's still hilarious. i can't wait for more.
