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.
I just finished watching an episode about a lady trying to return a pair of, what she thought, fake boots. The whole episode was drawn out with so many pointless, stupid remarks and segments. The "judge" even takes it to the point where she calls the staff to bring out her "Frada", or fake Prada bag just to show it to everyone.
Mid way through the show, a fashion expert comes out. She makes him list all the designer clothes he's wearing and she spends 3 minutes admiring an Hermes handkerchief. And a bit later, she tells the staff to bring out her Frada again just for him to look at for 5 minutes. Um, what's the point? The case is about boots, not your stupid fake Prada.
The last thing to get on my nerves was when she made the defendant pay an extra $100 just for interrupting her. She called it "rude". How is that fair? Just because you don't like someone does not mean you can charge them an extra $100.
She is a horrible judge and this is a horrible show.
