Let me take you back to 19th Century London, where you’ll find industry and poverty spreading over the cobbles as thickly and quickly as a past plague. Where the humble orange is a special treat and where the most entertaining, bloodthirsty and compelling of stories could be bought for a penny on a street corner. (British Term Alert: A penny is low form of currency) This Penny Dreadful however, that has hit Showtime and Sky Atlantic for one and now a second season is not only entertaining, bloodthirsty and compelling but is the story format’s 21st Century upgrade. Prepare to be thrust into the gory and the Gothic, and literature lovers rejoice as there is plenty to be excited about!
“If you can’t love yourself then how in hell you gonna love somebody else?”
Time for something a little different, I say a little different…I mean different to the max! What has caught my tele gorging attention recently is not a historical drama or popular big budget series but RuPaul’s Drag Race: America’s Next Top Model high on skittles and dripping in glam. All thanks to my sister coming across this beauty on Netflix I have been seriously bingeing my way through this and after seeing the light there is no going back.
