WWW.UPANDCOMINGWEEKLY.COM SEPTEMBER 16-22, 2020 UCW 19 WEEKLY HOROSCOPE NEWS OF THE WEIRD by the Editors at Andrews McMeel Syndication News You Can Use Police in Brockville, Ontario, Canada, say a homeowner ignored a warning from his pet parrot on Aug. 17 because the bird "isn't always a reliable source of infor- mation," CTV reported. As a thief entered the home through an un- locked door, authorities said, the parrot issued a friendly "hello," which didn't alert the homeowner or deter the man from taking a credit card from a wallet. A neigh- bor photographed the suspect leav- ing the scene and security cameras later caught a 33-year-old man us- ing the stolen card at a store, said police, who arrested him. Least Competent Criminals Police in Hollywood, Florida, had little trouble tracking down a trio of thieves who broke into nearly 30 homes, stealing more than $150,000 in cash, weapons, mobile phones, electronics, jew- elry, a vehicle and more, because all three were "already on pretrial release for previous crimes and ... wearing court-ordered GPS ankle bracelet monitors," Officer Chris- tian Lata said. The South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported Zion Odain Denvor Hall, 21; Tyrek Davon- tae Williams, 19; and Tremaine Raekwon Hill, 18, were arrested on Aug. 14 and charged with charged with burglary, grand theft and racketeering. Police believe they're part of a larger organiza- tion committing criminal acts throughout South Florida. Addi- tional charges are to come. Yikes! Workers at the James H. Cole funeral home in Detroit got a start when a body they were about to begin embalming came to life, the Associated Press reported. On Aug. 23, fire department paramedics in suburban Southfield were called to a home where they found 20-year- old Timesha Beauchamp unre- sponsive. After trying to resuscitate her for a half-hour, they consulted an ER doctor, who "pronounced the patient deceased based upon medical information provided" from the scene, according to the fire department. She was trans- ported to the funeral home where, more than an hour later, she opened her eyes, and staff sum- moned emergency crews to take her to a hospital, where she was listed in critical condition. Question: I am so sorry that Pen- ny Dreadful: City of Angels was canceled. Are there not enough subscribers to Showtime? —Gloria Matt Roush : Showtime has yet to elaborate on this decision, but I doubt it has anything to do with the size of its subscriber base as much as the size of the audi- ence that chose to tune in. You'd think during a time of quarantine that more subscribers would be inclined to watch new shows on premium services, so it's pos- sible this new version was just too different from the original "Penny Dreadful." I often found the supernatural elements to be an uneasy fit with the social- realism crime stories. I would have liked to see this get another shot as well, but it's also possible that economic factors during the pandemic played a part in this. At least the original Penny got to end on its own terms, even if it was a surprise to the viewer. To submit questions to T V Critic Matt Roush, go to: tvinsider.com. By Damian Holbrook Cheers to "Selling Sunset" for heating up summer. In Season 3, Netflix's reality show about L.A. real estate agents became the human version of a trashy beach read, full of glamorous homes and gorgeous people (in- cluding "This Is Us" star Justin Hartley's ex, Chrishell Stause) whose wardrobes are as eye- popping as their dramas are jaw- dropping. We're sold on this one! Jeers to "Love Island" for being awash in stupid. We thought the dumbest thing about Season 2 was that a show with "Island" in the title was actually set in a Vegas resort ... until Cely questioned whether Virginia was a real state. And don't even get us started on Hot Connor thinking women were turned off by his looks. ARIES - March 21/April 20 Aries, let yourself drift off into a creative mode this week.
