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

Rick Grimes is a former Sheriff's deputy who has been in a coma for several months after being shot while on duty. When he wakes, he discovers that the world has been taken over by zombies, and that he seems to be the only person still alive. After returning home to discover his wife and son missing, he heads for Atlanta to search for his family. Narrowly escaping death at the hands of the zombies on arrival in Atlanta, he is aided by another survivor,Glenn,who takes Rick to a camp outside the town. There,Rick finds his wife Lori and his son,Carl, along with his partner/best friend Shane and a small group of survivors who struggle to fend off the zombie hordes; as well as competing with other survivor groups who are prepared to do whatever it takes to survive.

Trivia

The description that Daryl gives of Merle's drug dealer (who most likely sold him blue sky meth considering he had it in his bag earlier in the series) sounds an awful lot like Jesse Pinkman from Breaking bad. The drug dealer has some sort of child in his life (Brock), in described physically as small and skinny, and says the word "bitch" See more »

Goofs

The zombies' organs still work, as shown when Rick and Daryl cut open the walker looking for Sophia. Blood would need to be pumping through the veins in order for this to happen. Blood pumping would not allow the zombies to decay. See more »

The best pilot for a TV show in years
23 October 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

What an opening 10 minutes for a TV show. Superb make up effects, top drawer acting. and interesting characters. Good to see UK actor Andrew Lincoln back on TV as he has been in some of UK TV's best dramas (After Life, This Life and Teachers). I liked the pace of the show. It was surprisingly gory too, which added to the realistic atmosphere of the pilot. The climax and in my opinion the best scene in the film really takes you by surprise and was quite nerve racking. I noticed that James Cameron's old collaborator Gale Ann Hurd was also involved with the show too. I should have guessed it would be a quality production with Frank Darabont at the helm directing it. I just hope the series keeps up the quality of the pilot.
