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.

Erica's life seems to be bound by rules and conventions, rather than acting on what may be deep in her heart. Ethan has just moved in, yet he feels threatened by Erica's relationship with Kai. Erica, with Ethan in tow, needs to do some research for her sex book at a bona fide sex club, where many social rules are broken. To allow her to feel what life is like without these conventions, Dr. Tom gives her the entire day again, this time how she wants it to play out. The only thing that will exist on her day after the fact is her memory of it. So she lets loose, and spends much of the day with the only person who can really appreciate it, Kai. Erica learns that even though nothing during her day is real, it feels like it's real - the good and the bad - and that she'll know what others truly believe and think after the day is over.

Yes We Can (#2.5)
21 August 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I like the idea of how she had a day where she could do whatever she wants. What I didn't like was again the final message. That the ridiculous "rules" of society are somehow necessary. Is it really hard to see the difference between stealing someone's car for a day and simply having a male friend while in a relationship. Shame on Dr. Tom for suggesting it and shame on Erica for ending a friendship because of Ethan's insecurities. Just makes it look that in our world friendships don't matter. Although unfortunately this seems to be the case.

I liked how Erica's sister shut her up. Erica is a bit annoying in always telling other people how to live their life. She seems to become arrogant just because finally she has a job and a relationship that works
