Gotham Finale Post Mortem: Scoop on Bruce's Discovery, Fish's Fate, The Riddler's Mania, Mr. Freeze and More
Fox’s Gotham wrapped Season 1 on Monday night with a brutal, “Who will be the last goon standing?” mob war that promised to make do-right Detective Jim Gordon’s job all that much harder come fall.

Elsewhere, Edward Nygma revealed his questionable alternate personality, Leslie’s therapy session with Barbara was anything but therapeutic and Bruce Wayne unlocked a huge piece of his batty family puzzle.

30 years since Gremlins: Stars of the Christmas cult classic then and now

30 years since Gremlins: Stars of the Christmas cult classic then and now
Christmas just wouldn't be Christmas without a heavily tinseled tree, a tipple before midday and Gremlins on the telly at some point during the day.

The Joe Dante-directed black cult comedy sees protagonist Billy Peltzer being gifted with Gizmo, a cute furry Mogwai discovered by his inventor father in a mysterious Chinatown antique store.

Of course the creature comes with three special instructions which, if not adhered to, result in the spawning of grizzly Gremlins hell-bent on havoc.

The Steven Spielberg-produced movie - which is

currently being fast-tracked by Warner Bros for a remake - celebrated its 30th anniversary earlier this year, and here's what the main cast members got up to after the movie's success:

Zach Galligan plays William 'Billy' Peltzer who becomes enthralled by his unusual Christmas gift - yet careless with the three golden Gizmo rules.

The Voice Top 10 Performance Recap: Truth Detectives

The Voice Top 10 Performance Recap: Truth Detectives
You can’t believe everything you hear on TV — not even (or perhaps especially) when it’s packaged in flannel-shirt wrapping paper, a folksy Oklahoma-accent and a corporate edict to keep the 18-49 demo rating above 3 million.

Which is why I didn’t let myself get angry or dismayed by Blake Shelton’s ridiculous exaggeration during The Voice‘s Top 10 performance episode on Monday: “This is the best live show I have ever seen in seven seasons.”

Dude, seriously?

I don’t believe for a second that the country coach believes such ridiculousness — not after an evening marked by incredibly insipid song selection,

Gotham Recap: No Heroes, Just Goats

Gotham Recap: No Heroes, Just Goats
This week’s episode of Fox’s Gotham should spark fresh discussion about what on the freshman drama is working, and what is not — if only because of the markedly different character mix that was on display.

I, for one, was quite compelled by “Spirit of the Goat,” so I am left to wonder: Is that in part because Fish Mooney and the lumbering “crime syndicate” storyline was 100 percent absent?

Or was it because of the significant bit of character work we got this week with Detective Harvey Bullock? Donal Logue is an immensely watchable actor, but the fact is

Gotham, Ep. 1.04, “Arkham” lays the groundwork for new inciting development

Gotham Season 1, Episode 4, “Arkham”

Written by Ken Woodruff

Directed by T.J. Scott

Airs Mondays at 8pm Et on Fox

“Arkham” picks up right where we left off last week with Oswald Cobblepot at Jim Gordon’s front door, which had potential for an explosive outcome. Although not as incendiary as one might have thought, “Arkham” does pull all the subplots of the previous episodes together and sheds some light on the significance Arkham will have in this series. Gotham has done very well integrating its case of the week stories with the overarching plot in the past but now it’s brought the war between Carmine Falcone and Sal Maroni to the forefront and this gives viewers a look at the key players and their motives.

In “Arkham”, we learn the history of the Arkham district and why it’s of value to the two crime bosses. The Waynes’ foundation

Upfronts 2014: Fox bets on year-round programming to counter 'Idol' struggles
For a decade or so, the schedules Fox announced during upfront week followed a predictable, amusing pattern: one schedule for the fall that would inevitably struggle, another schedule for mid-season built around the dominant presence of "American Idol," and then many, many changes made to that second schedule at a later date due to the struggles of the first. But "Idol" has slipped from being a juggernaut, to being a hit that no longer annihilated everything in its path, to being a solid utility player at best this spring — Fox president Kevin Reilly admitted to reporters on a press conference call that their "Idol" strategy is "not about turning it around," but simply making it a useful piece for the future — and as a result, Fox is finishing up one of its most problematic seasons ever, and didn't even bother announcing a mid-season schedule because they're still tinkering with how

Fox fall schedule revealed: 'Gotham' on Mondays

Fox fall schedule revealed: 'Gotham' on Mondays
Less animation, plenty of reality, and another two-hour comedy block reduced — those are some of the quick take-aways from Fox’s 2014 fall schedule announcement.

First up: On Mondays, the network will launch perhaps fall’s most-anticipated new drama, the Batman prequel series Gotham at 8 p.m. followed by the sophomore return of Sleepy Hollow at 9 p.m. Fox has ordered 16 episodes of Gotham and 18 episodes of Sleepy Hollow. On Tuesdays, ambitious new reality show Utopia, in which contestants try to build a perfect society over the course of a year, will open for New Girl and The Mindy Project (which

Fox's 2014-15 Schedule: 'Gotham' to Monday, 'Brooklyn' to Sunday and double 'Utopia'
Coming off a bumpy season and facing its first fall without three hours of "X Factor" in several years, Fox announced its 2014-15 schedule on Monday (May 12) morning. Actually, Fox only announced its Fall 2014 schedule on Monday. For the first time in recent memory, Fox didn't even attempt to present a midseason slate to advertisers as part of its upfronts presentation. Certainly Fox has plenty on the bench for a busy midseason, but the network has held back on January plans, perhaps waiting on the fate of the ambitious reality series "Utopia." While "X Factor" and its three hours are now, thankfully, gone, Fox scheduled two fall episodes with "Utopia," airing new episodes on Tuesday and Friday nights. In success, Fox execs have indicated that "Utopia" could continue forever -- Just like "Forever Eden"! -- which would impact Fox's spring slate. Fox also may want to hold off on deciding

Philip Seymour Hoffman Dead at 46, Kristen Bell Calls Out People, Man of Steel 2 Casting, Chip 'n' Dale & Labeouf Return

R.I.P. Oscar-winner Philip Seymour Hoffman (Capote) was found dead in his home in Manhattan yesterday morning of an alleged drug overdose. He was 46. Deadline reports that Hoffman was discovered in the bathroom of his apartment by an unidentified friend and that a hypodermic needle and what appeared to be heroin were found at the scene. Hoffman leaves behind his three children with costume designer Mimi O’Donnell: Cooper (11), Tallulah (7) and Willa (6).

Some of Hoffman's ongoing projects have been shelved, while others continue on. Only yesterday, we reported that Hoffman's planned second feature as a director, Ezekial Moss, was moving forward with Jake Gyllenhaal and Amy Adams in starring roles. With his passing, Exclusive Media has dropped the movie that Hoffman spent over a year working on with writer Keith Bunin.

Are Nicki Minaj & Lil Wayne Expecting A Baby Together?

Nicki Minaj appears to be pregnant, leading some to suspect that her past fling and label mate Lil’ Wayne could be the baby’s father.

Nicki MInaj Pregnant, Lil' Wayne The Father?

Minaj, who has been somewhat Mia since her stint as a judge on Fox’s American Idol, has reportedly been carrying a child for the last several months, according to ThyBlackMan(dot)com. The father, alleges the website, is none other than her longtime friend and sometime lover and collaborator Lil’ Wayne. Wayne already has four children from four different mothers, while the child would be the first for Minaj.

Though Minaj and Wayne are said to have had a sexual relationship in the past, no new reports of romance have appeared recently. However, the pair’s joint performance at the Billboard Music Awards featured Minaj grinding on the rapper in a racy lap dance, sparking rumors of a reunion.

Popstar Swedish footballer plays the Idol off the pitch

• Allowing player to take part in TV talent show criticised

Kevin Walker: 'I'm living a Bruce Wayne life at the moment'

A decision to move a Swedish second-tier match to allow a player to take part in a television talent show has been branded "ridiculous" by rival players and pundits.

Gif Sundsvall's 24-year-old Irish-Swedish midfielder Kevin Walker has made headlines by progressing through TV4's Idol singing contest, prompting the television company – which also owns the rights to show matches from Sweden's Superettan – to request the fixture change.

"I'm living a Bruce Wayne life at the moment," Walker told Swedish media. "I play football during the week, and then take part in Idol at the weekend. It's different for me than for other participants."

TV4's head of sport, Emir Osmanbegovic, told the Swedish news agency Tt: "There will be no clash with Idol" – with Gif Sundsvall's televised match

Interview: Director Wayne Blair, Jessica Mauboy of ‘The Sapphires’

Chicago – In other countries and cultures, there are parallel moments going on that are interesting mirrors to U.S. history. In “The Sapphires,” a girl group from Australia entertains the troops in Viet Nam, with many of the same U.S. issues of war, peace and social discord. The film is directed by Wayne Blair and features Jessica Mauboy.

Based on a true story, the film reflects on the practice in Australia of the “stolen generation,” when lighter skinned native Aborigines were stolen from their darker skinned families and assimilated into the white society. This is a thread in “The Sapphires,” as a stolen cousin rejoins the singing group before they go into Viet Nam. The film co-stars Chris O’Dowd (the cop in “Bridesmaids”), who is the manager of the group, and falls in love with one of the singers.
