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 show is OK, but serves to be a little disappointing as a follow on from the content of "a scare a bedtime". "A scare at bedtime" i found to be one of the funniest programs ever, and had great Irish humour (coming from the people, not the people looking down on the people). "The podge and rodge show" carries some these elements through but not with the same stage to make it as potent as "a scare at bedtime". However, as a purely an interview based program it couldn't be better and if was pat kenny, id be watching my back. They ask the unaskable, and fearlessly place their guests in positions of bafflement as to why they agreed to go on the show. They should keep the level of guest lower however, as its better to watch them ridiculing nobodies, rather then asking serious questions.
