Sunday Night on Showtime

By Valerie Milano

Los Angeles, CA (The Hollywood Times) 5/12/14 – Sunday night Showtime premiered its new series Penny Dreadful. At least Showtime had the decency to encode a pre-emptive warning in the title. However, if the word “Dreadful” escaped your notice, you can view the opening credits to get a sneak preview of what to expect. If bugs, bats, blood, vivisection and fine bone china list among your fetishes, then you won’t be disappointed by this splatter over substance goop-fest. The rest of us interested in holding down our Sunday dinner will take a pass, thank you.

By Valerie Milano

San Diego, CA (The Hollywood Times) 5/11/14 – In the beautiful Balboa Park in San Diego something strange and very exciting has landed at The Rueben H Fleet Science Center. Now showing is a special viewing of” Illusions-Nothing is As It Seems” a group of twenty exhibits that make one ponder and ask “how did they do that’? From gazing into a mirror and watching yourself morph into your inner animal, to bugs crawling off a screen onto your arm and then invading your body, to automotive oil leaking from a can and then ascending back into the can, to a three dimensional figure that appears amidst thin strands of fiber are just a few of these mind boggling exhibits that will surly cause one to think and question.
