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

Jerry Trainor returns to portray a character not of, but similar to, Spencer Shay. Instead he plays Vinnie, the eccentric owner of a pop culture memorabilia store in Los Angeles, whose breaks are spent only reading comics and playing video games. Soon, his 12-year old nephew, Wendell, pays him a visit. From that moment forward, Vinnie's life is turned upside down: he assumes legal guardianship over Wendell. Wendell is wise-beyond-his-years, while Vinnie is clueless, but with the help of his sister (Wilma, a frightening personal injury attorney), the girl next door (Taryn, a newly-divorced Texan girl of Vinnie's dreams) and Wendell himself, he finally gets the hang of it and does whatever he can to make a fine father. On the other hand, Wendell might just be the parent Vinnie needs! Written by Raymond A. Waldrop

Awesome.
2 March 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I think this comedy is very good. Usually Nickelodeon shows have dried out humor or terrible jokes; like Marvin Marvin... But this one is very great and an addictive show. I hope it doesn't get canceled an keeps going. It's a very interesting comedy and very awesome. I look on my TV guide to see when the next episode is,it's so cool. But like I said, This is such a great show, not like those shows that are such a stinker. I don't like to talk about other shows while reviewing one, but just to give an example: New shows like Marvin Marvin have pretty bad jokes, and not much humor, also, Studio 10 is such a waste of time I can't believe that show interrupts SpongeBob. Sorry to criticize other shows on this review but... I just had to give examples.
