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.

Not as good as the original
17 February 2008 | by (Liverpool & Vancouver) – See all my reviews

I can understand why they would update the technology of K.I.T.T, I really didn't enjoy this remake. I'm a huge fan of the original series and I guess for me this remake was always destined to fail before it even started.

I hated the new opening theme too, they should have kept the original.

The only reason I didn't give this less marks was because Val Kilmer did a good job as the voice of K.I.T.T.

I will be continuing to watch future episodes as I'm hoping to see David Hasselhoff make more appearances. I just wish it was 'The Hoff' doing all the action and driving scenes, even if he is 25 years old than he was in his prime.
