Science Channel's Breakout Series "Oddities" Takes Viewers Shopping at the Market of the Mysterious and the Macabre

-"Pawn Stars" Meets "The Addams Family" with the Premiere of ODDITIES Season Two on Saturday, April 9 at 10:00 PM ET/PT on Science Channel-

SILVER SPRING, Md., March 1, 2011 -- Where can you go when you're in dire need of a used straight jacket? What if you just have to have a two-headed cat or a book bound with human flesh to make your living room complete? There's only one emporium sublimely weird enough to carry these bizarre items and countless more - Obscura Antiques and Oddities in New York's East Village. Science Channel's breakout series, ODDITIES, follows Obscura's proprietors, Mike and Evan, as well as an assortment of hilariously-unique patrons who are even more outlandish than the merchandise. The second season of ODDITIES premieres Saturday, April 9, at 10:00 PM ET/PT.

Obscura is renowned for having some of the rarest and most-eccentric antique pieces found anywhere - from circus sideshow props, to shocking natural anomalies, to oddball items dabbling in the occult. Aficionados of the unusual from throughout the U.S. and beyond know that Obscura is the only place to purchase their next treasure - or sell their own abnormal assets. Mike, Evan and consultant Ryan serve as the ringmasters for this one-of-a-kind experience that's part swap meet and part cult rally.

"At Science Channel, we make it our goal to 'own weird' on television," said Debbie Adler Myers, executive vice president and general manager of Science Channel. "Obscura might be the most fascinatingly bizarre place I have ever been, and ODDITIES takes viewers through the looking glass for an incredibly entertaining look at one of the most unique subcultures anywhere."

The premiere of ODDITIES season two is literally "lights-out," as the store is visited by a circus performer known for his bizarre appetite. Within minutes of entering Obscura, he begins unscrewing and eating the store's lightbulbs. Freakish finds for season two include a shrunken head, the body of a half alligator/half boy, a Tibetan trumpet made of a human femur, and a cow...with two heads, six legs and two tails.

ODDITIES is produced for Science Channel by Leftfield Pictures. Bernadette McDaid is vice president of production and executive producer for Science Channel. David George, Brent Montgomery, Rob Shaftel and Colby Gaines are executive producers for Leftfield Pictures.
