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.

Out of control kid
15 February 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

My criticism of SVU has always been that unlike Law And Order prime occasionally they get way way out in their stories. This is a perfect example of that although the players do well in putting it over.

The SVU squad catches a case with an 8 year old Jae Head stealing his parents car and racing through the city like mad causing all kinds of damage. The squad is called in and sure enough Benson and Stabler smell an abused kid.

Young Jae Head is really frightening as this kid who's out of control so much so that his birth mother gave him up and Luke Perry and Julie Bowen the foster parents are about at their wit's end.

Some DNA from the kid leads back to the birth mother who happens to have been the victim of a rape that Mariska Hargitay handled several years ago. That in turn leads to tracking a serial rapist and the conclusion is really wild to say the least.

Hargitay is dealing with rape trauma herself from when she was undercover in a previous episode. As the child of a rapist, she truly gets into the case here. In the end she gets counseling for her own situation.

A little too far out for my tastes.
