Penny Dreadful: City of Angels

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hello Everyone :)

 

So, tonight we are getting another Penny Dreadful: City of Angels. Showtime Series Premiere: Sunday, March 26, 2020 at 10 P.M. ET/PT 

 

Set 50 years after the first Penny Dreadful, this supernatural 10 part spin-off series created and written by John Logan.

 

"1938 Los Angeles is a time and place deeply infused with social and political tension. When a grisly murder shocks the city, Detective Tiago Vega and his partner Lewis Michener become embroiled in an epic story that reflects the rich history of Los Angeles: from the building of the city's first freeways and its deep traditions of Mexican-American folklore, to the dangerous espionage actions of the Third Reich and the rise of radio evangelism. Before long, Tiago and his family are grappling with powerful forces that threaten to tear them apart."

 

 

The characters are connected in conflict to the deity, Santa Muete, while others are allied with the Devil. 

 

Cultural divides and political ambitions seem to the tinder that Chaos ignites. From what I can see, it seems to focus on pulp religion rather than pulp fiction. 

 

I can only hope ‘City of Angels’ doesn’t make light of rich cultural folklore and traditional practices. 

 

Staring: Natalei Dormer, Lorena Izzo, Rory Kinner, Nathan Lane, Amy Madigan, Daniel Zorvotto.

Adriana Barraza, Kerry Bisho, Piper Perabo (Coyote Ugly) and too many other actors to list - which concerns me.

There may be too much going for a cohesive narrative to emerge in 10 episodes. 

 

​Personally, I enjoy Natalie Dormer on screen. It will be interesting to see how City of Angels play out.

I'm in the UK too. I liked the original so I'm hoping the spin-off turns out to be good as well.  🙃
