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.

When Detective Murdoch (Yannick Bisson) investigates the abduction of Lucille Messing (Tori Anderson) a shy, churchgoing librarian, he's stunned to discover his former love, Anna Fulford (Lisa Faulkner), working at the library under an alias. Murdoch has grave fears for her safety since the Black Hand, a criminal syndicate responsible for murdering her fiancé, still has a price on her head. Realizing that Lucille's disappearance was not a case of mistaken identity, Anna believes that since she's already been in Toronto for months unnoticed, her life is no longer threatened.

I don't need teaching on birth control
16 April 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the story of a librarian who disappears after someone stays hidden in the library at closing time and attacks her. She missed her chorus practice at the church and the pastor found this unusual.

A woman named Hannah that Murdoch whisks out of the city in an earlier episode because she might be targeted by "The Black Hand" comes back to work in the library under a different name. This worries Murdoch.

Later a scene is shown with Dr Odgen teaching birth control to a group of women.

I did not watch this episode to learn about birth control I don't need this info in a murder mystery series so I stopped watching the episode.
