Seriously, anyone who saw the very sorry screen adaption of Alan Moore's phenomenal comic book "The League of Extraordinary Gentleman" knows what I'm blogging about. Fortunately, Showtime knows their stuff and having Oscar-nominated screenwriter John Logan running things gives us an atmospheric a...
