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.

Storyline

Oliver Queen and his father are lost at sea when their luxury yacht sinks, apparently in a storm. His father dies, but Oliver survives for five years on an uncharted island and eventually returns home. But he wasn't alone on the island where he learned not only how to fight and survive but also of his father's corruption and unscrupulous business dealings. He returns to civilization a changed man, determined to put things right. He disguises himself with the hood of one of his mysterious island mentors, arms himself with a bow and sets about hunting down the men and women who have corrupted his city. Written by Anonymous

Goofs

In the promotional picture for the series it shows a shirtless Oliver. The scars from his time on the island are visible, but there is no tattoo. During the series Oliver has a tattoo on his chest, a tattoo that plays an important role in at least one episode (1x03 "Lone Gunmen") and has been visible in every other episode. See more »

Quotes

Oliver Queen: My name is Oliver Queen. For five years I was stranded on an island with only one goal - survive. Now I will fulfill my father's dying wish - to use the list of names he left me and bring down those who are poisoning my city. To do this, I must become someone else. I must become something else.

Weak Sauce
21 January 2014 | by (Freiburg, Germany) – See all my reviews

I have actually watched just about all of the show that has been released. I am not writing my review after watching ten minutes of the pilot and deciding it's crap. I really kind of liked the idea behind this show. I heard some people complaining about the lack of realism, but come on, it's a superhero show, a little unrealism ought to be allowed. Upon watching the first few episodes, I kinda hoped that like lot's of great television shows, the actors and writers just needed a bit of time to get into their groove really find their characters. Once that occurred I reasoned, the quality of the show would start to pick up. So despite my initial reservations I kept watching and waiting... and waiting... and waiting. It just never happened. The plot has remained unimaginative, static, and predictable; the actors are wooden and unsympathetic, and the writing is overall just a train wreck. I could honestly predict exactly what the actors were going to say next. It pains me to see this truly mediocre-at-best show get the rating it has received. I will attribute this injustice to the fact that the actors are incredibly pretty and the assumption that those giving this show a good rating would have their brains explode upon watching some quality programming.
