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.

Her first stab at foster parenting
27 February 2015 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Olivia Benson's first stab at foster parenting came to an end after two episodes. She's got young Charlie Tahan in her custody, signed over to her by Maria Bello after she went on the run for a murder she committed. The murder of her biological father because she was the child of a rapist just as Mariska Hargitay is.

Now however Bello's name comes up in an investigation of a woman who was assaulted and later died at a party. She was also raped post mortem, but by a different individual.

Both crimes get solved and yet there's another murder that of Kat Foster who is Bello's girlfriend and junkie buddy.

In the end Tahan is no longer Olivia's. I feel bad for this kid. If genes are any indication he hasn't a prayer of leading a normal life.
