PENNY DREADFUL: CITY OF ANGELS – John Logan Gets Desperate
Remember back when John Logan prematurely pulled the plug on PENNY DREADFUL? Sure you do. I gave him all sorts of hell over it, at the behest of fans of the series who felt royally screwed over by Mr. Logan. I offered proof that Logan lied when he said the ending had been planned in advance—unless you believe that everybody else in the cast and at Showtime was lying, and Logan was the only one telling the truth, which I don’t. I even uncovered the real reason for Logan yanking the rug out from under the fans. He had a new project in the works and didn’t want to spend any more time on PENNY DREADFUL. That new project was entitled JUST KIDS. Heard of it? Probably not. Nary a peep concerning it has been uttered since the show was first announced back around the time, coincidentally, that PENNY DREADFUL ended. IMDB lists the status as “unknown.”
Okay, this part here is just theorizing, alright? I don’t have any proof, but I think it’s a plausible hypothesis. I think Logan got all giddy over his new project and dumped PENNY DREADFUL. For whatever reasons, that new project didn’t pan out. Logan woke up one morning and realized an income stream had run dry. Right about that time he decided to go back to the old well. He conceived PENNY DREADFUL: CITY OF ANGELS. Will you be watching this new show? I won’t. I refuse to support Logan. He screwed over his fans and shouldn’t be given a second chance to do it again. Them’s my two cents’ worth.
