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.

Storyline

In the series finale, the Atlantis team is contacted by none other than their old friend Todd the Wraith, who tells them an underling has marooned him on a planet and taken over the Wraith hive ship. As if that weren't bad enough, the hive ship is now powered by a ZPM and the super-energy source is transforming the craft into an invincible weapon. While those on Atlantis try to destroy the ship, it jumps to hyperspace and has a very clear destination in mind: Earth. Sheppard is recalled home to man their best defense while Teyla, Ronon and McKay find themselves battling the Wraith from within their ship. In the end, Atlantis must travel to Earth for the final battle. Written by garykmcd

A fantastic end to an amazing series
18 January 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

it is a crying shame that this series has been cancelled but this was an excellent ending to the show. It was very well scripted, the whole story came together nicely calling upon a whole string of previous story lines and references. I particularly liked the end scene which was a nice nod in the direction of the star trek franchise. This show has been both a great success in terms to sci fi with great story lines and an great sense of humour which is not easy to achieve. I am glad they did not leave it as a cliff hanger for the movie and look forward to the arrival of said movie. I would much rather of had at least 2 more seasons out of these characters.
