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.

Since his wife's fatal car crash, Seth Webster is flat out with his architect career and caring for his darling, doting rascal twin sons Jason and Judd (6), whose unrelenting mischief chased every housekeeper the agency sent in no time. Mrs. Merkle turns up mysteriously, but is so good at minding boys and house that her name gets corrupted into Mrs. Miracle. Sneakily, she also pulls miraculous strings to make sure recluse Seth dates again with single mother Reba Maxwell, also to the kids' liking, through their school's Christmas show. Written by
When Seth and Reba are coming out of the Gallery at the 1:06 mark, Seth tells Reba the boys are enjoying fighting with their angel swords. But this is before Mrs. Merkle even tells the boys about their swords, which is at the 1:40 mark. See more »
Thanks, Hallmark. This is a lovely, lovely film...... a must-see for romance fans and suitable for all audiences
Reba (Erin Karpluk) has returned to her hometown, after a try at professional acting. Her new gig is being a preschool teacher and a director for the upcoming Christmas show for the school. But, she is still despondent that her lovelife has been so hurtful. It seems her sister ran off with her fiancé and they haven't spoken in years. Meanwhile, a gentleman (James Van Der Beek) has also come to town with his young twin boys. A widower, he, too, is down on love and having trouble with the kids. Into their lives comes Mrs. Merkle (Doris Roberts). She nabs the job of nanny-housekeeper for the twins, who immediately dub her "Mrs. Miracle". Indeed, Mrs. Miracle soon has the boys behaving nicely and in a happier state of mind. As the miracle lady proceeds to find a way for Reba and the handsome widower to meet, again and again, is she sowing the seeds of love for their futures? And, can she solve other problems for them, too? Is she human or could she be, gasp, a true angel from above? This was one lovely film, very sweet and suitable for all audiences. It has humor, drama, romance and nice performances. Make time to see it, do. It is a miracle a film as beautiful as this one is here to warm our hearts. Thanks, Hallmark. You stand alone in making high-quality films that absolutely everyone can love watch and love.
