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.

In the London of the late eighteenth century, William Garrow, apprentice counsel to the experienced Southouse, is appalled by the savagery of the court system and the fact that the defending lawyer never gets advanced disclosure. His first case is to defend a youth falsely accused of robbery so that a professional thief taker will be paid for the conviction. He fails to save the boy but impresses the philanthropic and liberal wife of M.P. Sir Arthur Hill, Lady Sarah, who pays him to defend a young girl accused of infanticide. His demolition of the prosecution witnesses and encouraging the girl to move the court with her story results in a Not Guilty verdict and the respect of prosecutor Silvester. However, Southouse warns him that his crusading methods will bring him enemies. Written by don @ minifie-1
