‘The Tick’ superheroes & supervillains discuss the ‘knife-edge between satire and serious’ in Amazon comedy [Watch]
“I think it was clear that they were really trying to find the tone and find that knife edge between satire and serious, menacing and comic,” said actor Michael Cerveris about the Amazon comedy series “The Tick,” which premiered the first six episodes of its first season in August 2017 and will premiere the last six episodes on February 23. He and his co-stars Yara Martinez were at New York Comic Con in October to discuss their respective roles as supervillains Ramses and Ms. Lint. Watch them discuss their characters above, and scroll down to see Brendan Hines and Scott Speiser open up about playing heroes Superian and Overkill.

The Tick” is based on the comic book by Ben Edlund, which was adapted into a 1990s animated series, then a short-lived 2001 live-action series, and now the Amazon adaptation, which takes a somewhat darker approach to the same exaggerated, absurdist comic-book world. So

Mosaic: Season One Ratings

HBO introduced Big Little Lies as mini-series last year, but it was so popular, they eventually renewed it for a second season. Now, here comes the Mosaic TV show. Like Big Little Lies it has a pretty big star taking the lead. What's more, Steven Soderbergh directed it, and alternative view points of the series are available via a new, interactive iOS/Android mobile app. That seems like a pretty big investment for a six-episode series. Could it be the next anthology? Will Mosaic be cancelled or renewed for season two? Stay tuned.

TV Review: Steven Soderbergh’s ‘Mosaic’ on HBO

TV Review: Steven Soderbergh’s ‘Mosaic’ on HBO
Populated by series like “Broadchurch,” “Happy Valley,” “Top of the Lake” and various versions of “The Bridge,” a TV subgenre has flourished in recent years: It depicts the aftermath of a serious crime in a relatively enclosed community. It’s a niche that the Steven Soderbergh-directed “Mosaic” fits into comfortably; the HBO limited series is a solid and generally satisfying addition to this mystery-thriller category.

The creative teams behind these series typically use the core transgression to delve into the workings of power, money, intimidation and influence in communities that seem close-knit but are actually messy and full of conflict. “Mosaic,” which stars Sharon Stone, Beau Bridges, Frederick Weller and a skilled ensemble, is set in a Utah resort community that revolves around skiing and mineral extraction, and the viewer never quite forgets that mountains and mines can be unforgiving places to get lost. The chilly, windswept setting of Park City, Utah amplifies

Here’s When Jerome Will Return To Gotham

Although Cameron Monaghan has never been a part of Gotham‘s principal cast, many would likely argue – and I would agree with them – that Jerome Valeska has easily emerged as the finest villain the series has thus far produced, thanks to sharp writing and the young actor’s incredible performances. Now, that’s not meant to be a knock against Robin Lord Taylor’s Penguin or Cory Michael Smith’s Riddler, but it’s just a testament to how well Monaghan has brought this proto-Joker to life.

When we last saw Jerome, he’d paid homage to Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo’s Batman: Death of the Family by wearing a dead skin mask with such style. But after he’d had all his fun in an amusement park straight out of The Killing Joke, James Gordon succeeded in apprehending the young knave – and punching off his face in the process.

Gotham season 4 episode 9 review: Let Them Eat Pie

Marc Buxton Nov 17, 2017

Things take a horrific turn as James Gordon and the Penguin face Gotham’s greatest horror to date- Professor Pyg. Spoilers...

4.9 Let Them Eat Pie

What in the name of Bill Finger did I just watch? Years ago, when I first heard that DC was doing a show based on the adventures of a young James Gordon, I never thought I’d see that series morph into a hardcore horror drama that out-gored Ryan Murphy and American Horror Story. But that’s exactly what we get this week as Gotham went full-on gross-out terror in James Gordon’s climatic confrontation with Professor Pyg.

I think most Gotham fans are on the Jerome train as far as the most popular villain of the series is concerned, but really, Professor Pyg really steps up and becomes one of the most twisted,

Michael Cerveris on Playing Professor Pyg on ‘Gotham’, Being Part of ‘Mosaic’, and More

From the moment of his debut on the Fox series Gotham, Professor Pyg (played with unnerving brilliance by Michael Cerveris) had most definitely made an impression. As a serial killer assassinating cops and dressing his victims in the severed heads of pigs while also wearing a pig’s head himself, Pyg is terrifying and disturbed, but also clearly the mastermind of his own twisted plan that involves Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie), whether he likes it or not. During this 1-on-1 interview with Collider, actor Michael Cerveris (who also played September on Fringe and Ramses IV in The Tick) …

Intriguing New Trailer For Steven Soderbergh's "Choose Your Own Adventure" Film Mosaic

HBO has released a new trailer for Steven Soderbergh's upcoming film Mosaic, which allows its viewers to choose the direction of the story. It's an experimental form of filmmaking it looks like it will be a fun, entertaining, and innovative experience! It's like a live-action "Choose Your Own Adventure" book. I'm sure you all remember those.

When talking about the technology that allows this more immersive movie experience to exist, Soderbergh said:

“It’s a branching narrative piece. Branching narratives have been around forever, but technology now allows, I hope, for a more elegant, intuitive form of engagement than used to be possible. We spent a lot of time on how you touch this thing. I wanted to make sure that it was beautiful and simple, so that when the opportunity arises for you to decide whose perspective you want to follow, it feels organic and not like an

New trailer for Steven Soderbergh’s Mosaic

HBO has released a new trailer for Mosaic, a unique storytelling experience from Steven Soderbergh, which is available now via the free app ahead of a traditional six-hour miniseries airing on the cable network in the New Year. Take a look at the trailer here…

Three years in the making, the Mosaic app allows viewers to choose what point-of-view from which to follow the story and to, in effect, build their own experience from the material Soderbergh and Solomon created. The choices one makes build upon one another, enabling multiple tellings of the story from different perspectives and, sometimes, with different conclusions. Viewers will be able to see how their own versions of the story on the app ultimately compare to Soderbergh’s six-part linear narrative in January.

Mosaic is available via a free app now, with a traditional six-hour episodic version slated to air on HBO in January 2018 and
