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.

Very disappointing.
29 September 2007 | by See all my reviews

I completely agree with the previous reviewer (GMEllis625). Even the character of Natalie was unbelievable. For such a brilliant and physically fit person (had to be to plan and pull off everything she did), she mysteriously turned into a turnip once she was caught.

It felt like the writers had to get this episode together at the last minute, there were so many holes in the plot. And to say that Sara was disoriented - hmmm. This reason might have worked if it had been woven into the story somehow, but to write it into a subsequent episode (if, in fact, this is what will happen) is just an easy way out of some poor writing.

If this weren't one of my favorite shows, I wouldn't have been so disappointed. But I've come to expect some pretty good stories on CSI and this was certainly not one of them.
