WWW.UPANDCOMINGWEEKLY.COM MAY 20-26, 2020 UCW 19 WEEKLY HOROSCOPE NEWS OF THE WEIRD by the Editors at Andrews McMeel Syndication Creative quarantine Discovery Island at Disney World in Orlando, Florida, has been closed to the public since 1999, and, of course, the park itself has been closed since mid- March because of coronavirus concerns. Once called Treasure Island, the 11-acre property sits in the park's Bay Lake and was a pure "tropical paradise" for an unnamed interloper from Alabama, who was found camp- ing on the island on April 30 by park security. NPR reported the 42-year-old man told Orange County Sheriff's deputies he was planning to stay about a week and was unaware he was doing anything wrong, despite numerous "no trespassing" signs and calls from authorities over loudspeakers. Nevertheless, he was charged with trespassing and was banned from all Disney properties. Precocious A Utah Highway Patrol of- ficer pulled over a car in Weber County on May 4 for "what he thought was an impaired driver," the highway patrol said on Twit- ter, but instead he was shocked to find a 5-year-old in the driv- er's seat. The boy told the troop- er he took off in his parents' car after arguing with his mother because she wouldn't buy him a Lamborghini, according to United Press International. He planned to drive to California to get one for himself, but alas, "he only had $3 his wallet," the high- way patrol noted. Storytime Nursery school teacher Eloise Roberts, 32, has been making videos for her students during the coronavirus lockdown and recently decided to take advan- tage of a lovely spring day to record a story about unicorns at the horse riding school in More- ton, Merseyside, England, where she lives. What she didn't expect was the springtime friskiness of the horses in the background. "I could hear that the horses were up to something behind me," Roberts told the Daily Mail, so she turned around to discover the more compelling story hap- pening behind her, and quickly moved to another field. Question: I recently watched the pilot episode of Showtime's "Penny Dreadful: City of Angels," and I really enjoyed it. I thought the performances were good, especially Natalie Dormer. However, I tried watching a few epi- sodes of the original "Penny Dreadful" series, and this one seems very differ- ent, not just in terms of characters, but also with regards to tone and premise. e nature of the new show might be too different for fans of the origi- nal, but new fans may be hesitant to watch due to the same name. What do you think about the title associa- tion and how this could affect opin- ions on the new series? — Marissa Matt Roush: ese two "Pennys" could hardly be more different, and your question is a good one. While Natalie Dormer is terrific in her vari- ous guises as the evil shape-shifting demon stirring up mayhem in 1930s Los Angeles, I'm finding the super- natural elements of "City of Angels" more distracting than compelling, whereas the Gothic horrors of the original series, mashing up various iconic monsters of literature and legend, was pure intoxication to me. I am curious how fans of the original series will react to the new version. "City of Angels" works best for me as a crime drama wrapped in a social commentary, and I'm not sure that's what I or anyone else expected from the anthology's second act.

While not flawless, the late-nighter's at-home outings earn them huge props for pulling off creatively edited episodes shot remotely from the cast's cribs that were as exciting as the show's early experimental days. Jeers to the network renewal wait- ing game. Since series like NBC's "Manifest," ABC's "A Million Little ings," ABC's "Emergence" and NBC's "Indebted" have already ended their seasons, it would be nice to know if they're coming back in the fall.
