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.

The Books are so much better!!
11 March 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The Books are so much better!! Shetland is gorgeous, without doubt, but the TV versions of the Ann Cleeves books seem to make the whole thing a bit dull some how, as well as changing a lot with regard to the characters (Jimmy Perez has swarthy dark features linking his genes to the Armada; Raven Black is the first in the series & many characters are switched or different). It's really disappointing as I had looked forward to seeing these brought to screen. If you enjoyed the episodes though, do go & try the books (of the same name) as they bring so much more & the descriptions of all the Isles makes you feel you are there in those landscapes & within those communities. The stories themselves are much richer, & in depth.
