If there’s a second lesson to take away from this week’s episode, it’s that you really don’t want to mess with Katrina, because redhead will mess you up, lie about it for centuries and then claim the moral high ground when confronted.
In between, there’s Jenny, Hawley, Jenny on Hawley (mrrow), a tasty bit of Ichabod’s back story and one truly unfortunate Revolutionary War re-enactor. »
This week on Fox’s Gotham, Jim Gordon’s non-murderous secret got out, Fish Mooney’s plan for her comely chanteuse became evident and Master Bruce did some nifty detective work.
On the heels of what I felt was a stronger episode, “Arkham,” this week’s hour felt flat to me. And I’m starting to ask myself why this show isn’t quite clicking for me, several weeks in.
Sure, we had some plot movement. In a bid to cement a bigger role with Maroni, Penguin came clean about his real name and criminal roots in the Fish via Falcone organization. »

Fox is loving Ryan Murphy still, hence why they ordered a new series by him. Scream Queens will be following the steps of American Horror Story. The show will cover a new story line each season, with the first one set to be about a college dealing with murders. It will be a dark comedy that will be put out by Ryan and his team of masterminds of their soon to be over Glee days, Brad Falchuk, Ian Brennan and Dante Di Loreto. Here is what he had to say about his new show.
I knew I wanted to work with Brad and Ian again on something comedic, and we are having a blast writing Scream Queens. We hope to create a whole new genre – comedy-horror – and the idea is for every season to revolve around two female leads. We’ve already begun a nationwide search for those women, as well as 10 other supporting roles, »

Students on a college campus are stalked by a malicious murderer: horror film fans have seen this setup in many films like Final Exam, Scream 2, and Urban Legend, but we’ve never seen Ryan Murphy’s take on this story setup. That will change by next year, though, as the American Horror Story co-creator is moving forward on a university-set horror-comedy series called Scream Queens for Fox.
Set for a fall 2015 premiere, the first season of Scream Queens will consist of 15 one hour-long episodes. Similar to the American Horror Story structure, Scream Queens will tell a different story in a new environment each season.
Press release via Yahoo: “Los Angeles (Reuters) – Fox has ordered anthology series “Scream Queens” from the creator of ‘Glee” and “American Horror Story,” the U.S. television network said on Monday, as broadcast TV takes a cue from a format largely successful on cable networks. »

There’s nothing stopping producers Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk in their quest for complete domination of the alternative TV docket. The pair first made waves when they introduced the world to the destructive lives of plastic surgeons in Nip/Tuck before they redefined serial television with the hugely popular American Horror Story for FX.
For their mainstream musical venture at Fox, the duo rounded out their “sound” by bringing in producer Ian Brennan for teen comedy Glee. With that show currently tying up its final season, Fox isn’t letting their winning trio slip through their fingers, as they’ve just given Murphy, Falchuk and Brennan’s next project, Scream Queens, a 15-episode straight-to-series order.
Slated to be a comedy-horror anthology, the show will debut in fall 2015 and revolve around a similar framework to American Horror Story. Each season will begin with a brand new story, set in new locations with entirely different characters. »
