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.

Did You Know?


The CSI crew try to pinpoint the origin of the internet feed by looking at the bottom left screen on a TV which displays the temperature of that locale. The temperature is in Fahrenheit and yet they try to find this display in Europe and Russia. The only country that would display this temperature in Fahrenheit is the US. Everybody else uses Celsius.

Credibility Issues Aside, It's A Fun Watch
21 December 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Adam Ross" (A.J. Buckley) is at work but hooked up to some chat site on the Web and some beautiful young French girl gets his attention in a hurry. However, within minutes after they begin talking someone in a black hood comes up from behind her and strangles her! Then the connection is terminated. Adam freaks out and chases down his boss, "Mac Taylor" (Gary Sinise) to tell what he just witnessed.

The problems in the crime are major because it could happened anywhere in the world. Who is the girl? Who is the killer? Of course, these almost-impossible questions are answered fairly quickly because - hey, it's CSI and they only have about 45 minutes of the show to tell the story. On CSI, everyone is a genius, apparently, because - thanks in large part to newcomer "Jo Danville's" (Sela Ward) psychological expertise - the suspect interrogations begin soon.

Anyway, credibility is never high in any of the CSI shows but they are almost very entertaining and a lot of fun to watch. This episode is no exception.

In side notes, we learn more of Ward's character, see one of the CSI's get suspended for three days, and get a tense action scene at the end.
