Gotham: 6 Things Fox's Batman Prequel Gets Right (And 3 Things We're Worried About)

47 minutes ago

Fox's Gotham is arguably the most anticipated new show of the fall season, but that doesn't necessarily mean it's destined to become a hit. 

The new drama, created by The Mentalist's Bruno Heller examines the city protected by Batman long before the Dark Knight was around to protect it. Stepping in as the city's hero is rookie detective (and future police commissioner) Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie) who, along with his cynical partner Harvey Bullock (Donal Logue), encounter nascent versions of the Batman franchise's villains, including The Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor), Catwoman (Camren Bicondova) and The Riddler (Cory Michael Smith), while investigating the murders of the parents of a 12-year-old Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz).

On the Set:  Go behind-the-scenes of Fox's Gotham

But as anyone who watched the first two-thirds of ABC's Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. — last season's buzziest new show — knows, creating a superhero TV series without a superhero can be tricky business. »

Meet Scorpion's Brilliant, Big Bang Theory-Esque Crime-Fighting Team

1 hour ago

Scorpion is not The Big Bang Theory, but it doesn't mind comparisons to CBS' wildly popular hit comedy. 

After all, both series seem to share the same DNA: Socially awkward nerds get help relating to the world from a beautiful waitress who joins their group. "The truth is while breaking the show and the characters and coming up with ideas that kind of all came together, it was brought up at some point by someone at CBS who said, 'Oh, wow, this is like Big Bang Theory in the field," executive producer Nick Santora said during the Television Critics Association fall previews. "And so I went, 'Yeah, it is.' [I was] smart enough to fake it and lie."

Pilot Inspector: Befriending Friends Again, 20 Years Later

2 hours ago

On Sept. 22, 1994, Friends premiered on NBC, and haircuts, coffeehouses, lobsters, trivia games, pivoting, Thanksgiving, pickup lines and break(-up) lines were never the same again. The sitcom phenom's cultural impact endures and its popularity remains unrivaled, but could we have foreseen all that by the time Chandler (Matthew Perry) shared his Liza Minnelli dream?

In honor of the series' 20th anniversary, Joyce Eng and Sadie Gennis decided to break out the pilot and look back at the one where it all began.

8 Things That Will and 2 Things That (Probably) Won't Happen on Big Bang Theory Season 8

2 hours ago

A multi-year renewal not only means job security (and $1 million an episode at that), but allows for long-term story planning. For The Big Bang Theory producers, however, it means business as usual.

"The three-year pickup is great and wonderful, but it's not going to change what we do," executive producer Steve Molaro tells TVGuide.com. "The way we've done things has worked out pretty well so far!"

Fall TV: Scoop on your favorite returning shows

That method means never looking further ahead than the episode in front of them. So, even with Penny (Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting) and Leonard (Johnny Galecki) engaged now, it'll be a while before you get a Save the Date.

"I don't think we feel pressure to hit these milestones," Molaro says. "I'm sure some fans want ...

Outlander's Sexy Wedding Night Has Arrived: Did It Live Up to Your Expectations?

22 hours ago

The Outlander wedding — and wedding night — has arrived.

For fans of the book, Chapter 14 is the pivotal moment when Claire (Caitriona Balfe) and Jamie (Sam Heughan) essentially begin their love story. Yes, we've seen their affection building, but until the moment Claire is forced into betrothal — as a loophole to Captain Jack Randall's orders — Claire is holding onto the hope that she'll return to Craig na Dun, slip back through time, and reunite with her husband Frank (Tobias Menzies). But nothing signifies the realization that this may never happen more than halfway through the episode when, as told through flashback, she slips off her wedding ring. Claire would later put it back on, with her new wedding ring on the other hand, in the final scene as she accepts her fate of being stuck between two worlds.

Investigating Veronica Mars: Creator Rob Thomas on the Show's Enduring Legacy 10 Years Later

20 September 2014 3:32 PM, PDT

"Veronica Mars has heat right now, you know?"

That's what Ryan Hansen tells Kristen Bell in the new digital series Play It Again, Dick — and he has a point.

It's hard to imagine that little over a year ago, the idea of more Veronica Marswas nothing more than a pipe dream for creator Rob Thomas. For six years after the show's cancellation, Thomas struggled to get the long-awaited movie made and only got the go-ahead from Warner Bros. if he could raise his own funds. But after the film proved profitable — if only by a small margin — not only is Thomas working on a second new Veronica Mars novel, but now executives are coming to him with projects, including The CW Seed seriesPlay It Again, Dick.

Weekend TV: Madam Secretary Joins The Good Wife

19 September 2014 6:26 AM, PDT

Many observers will try to compare Elizabeth McCord, the fictional Madam Secretary (of State) winningly played by Téa Leoni, to Hillary Clinton — given the high-profile government cabinet position, and the hair color, and a Benghazi-like crisis by the second episode. But the real comparison to be made is with the show's Sunday night companion piece on CBS: The Good Wife, and that's where this well-meaning and generally entertaining Madam comes up a bit short.
