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 mini series documentary,"Brown Sugar"is a wonderful work. It is filled with great information and rare film clips. The topic of black womens contribution to American entertainment is one that was not explored in its entirety until this piece. There has not been another as in-depth study of this topic since. I learned so much about some of the great stars of many eras. Billy Dee Williams was a perfect choice for a commentator with his smooth sophisticated style. Mr. Bogles artistry and attention to detail was impressive. More people need to see this work. I loved "Brown Sugar" and I am very interested in getting a copy of all the episodes. Can anyone help me do this?
