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.

This isn't an action movie, a blood and guts gore film or a sex filled mystery. It is a movie about good things in life: Love, Passion, Courage, Honesty, Forgiveness, Integrity and Honor. We need more movies like this, movies that teach good not movies that corrupt our children.
It is so hard today to find films like this one. My daughters get mad at me when I want us to watch an "OLD" movie in black and white. It is very hard today to get children to watch something worthwhile. I remember when TV only had "GOOD" stuff to watch. This brings me to something I am confused about... a low rating on IMDb. I guess society has been so corrupted that it can't see good anymore. This movie should have a rating of 9 or 10. Special effects, blood and gore, sex and constant action shouldn't be what is expected in our movies. We cannot just blame the movie industry....we have to blame ourselves as well. On the other end of the spectrum, we fully blame the movie industry for tricking us into thinking that movies like the Hunger Games were great. I was so sickened when I watched it, I couldn't even finish it. The Hunger Games should have been rated R and we should have been told the truth in the previews and advertising of it. Shame on you Hollywood for exposing my daughter to such horror as children killing children. I will not let my children see another movie until I have seen it first. My trust in Hollywood is less than zero and if the country continues on its present path, I am sad to say movies will become more immoral and less about teaching good. Again, I say we need more movies like Loves Everlasting Courage, if we are to ever be good again...
