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.

Is It BS Or Not?
10 September 2008 | by (Fahaheel, Kuwait) – See all my reviews

This show is an update in the vein of "In Search Of" with Leonard Nemoy, remember that one? I used to always watch that show in the 70's when I was a teen. I used to read books about UFO's also, I was amazed, but ala you were always left hanging in both regards, no concrete proof. So we have this show which is basically a rehash of those entertainment premises, with maybe the exception that they do try a little bit to debunk some of these myths. I'm not sure they try very hard though which is OK by me, I like to leave it hanging out there. I though about a movie while I watched this one episode of "Is It Real?", that movie is "Amazon Women On The Moon" they did a skit starring Henry Silva called "Is It BS or Not?" except they said the whole BS word. That skit contemplated that the loch ness monster was Jack The Ripper, I loved it when Silva in deadpan humor went, "As we will see in this BS re-enactment that the loch ness monster was Jack The Ripper", LOL. Reminded me a lot of all these shows. 5 of 10 they do try a little bit to debunk things, and the footage is a lot clearer then my memories of Leonard Nemoy's 70's show are. Really comes down to zombie time to watch TV when nothing else is on.
