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.

Most sad and touching episode thus far, my favourite.

Just watch this episode, and I wanted to check out peoples thoughts on this. To my disappointment, there was but one mere review, in which the reviewer seemed to greatly dislike the episode. I'll address that later.

This episode made me cry like a baby. And I don't do that a lot. But the whole story involving one of the main characters so personally, it got to me. Especially the ending, where Cho sits in remorse with the grandmother of the victim, was the most touching scene I've seen in this whole series. I think he did a splendid acting job this episode, in that he really managed to capture the man of stone, with no emotions leaking out, but lost his cool and showed genuine emotions for the first time in the series. If there's anything I could complain about, it's the obviousness in the whole confession thing; it was made too obvious the cocaine dude wasn't killed, and it was all a plan to fool the real culprit.

Now, the other reviewer first of all complains about the name of the gang and Cho's nickname. Well, guess what. The writers are aware of it. They're even so aware of it that they have Jane, the series witty protagonist, make a snarky remark upon it. It's SUPPOSED to sound stupid. Second of all, the other reviewer claims it's hard to believe Cho comes from a gang background. Why? He's the emotionless one on the team. He's hardened like no one else, and doesn't mind bending rules. If anyone could be a former gang member, it'd be him. And I think they make it all very believable.

While not the funniest episode, nor the most witty or smart, this episode is still definitely the best one so far in my opinion because the story brought up so much greater emotions to me. Kudos.
