Easily the most anticipated new show of the season is Gotham, and if you weren’t able to attend the premiere party, here’s the next best thing.
It was clearly quite the party, and even if you aren’t among the hopefuls looking for this to become your next favorite show, it’s a series that absolutely has to be watched… for a while at least. Just based on the cast and crew, and any connection to Batman, you have to check out what they do with this thing. And, I have to say, Donal Logue. The End.
And again, even if you aren’t already sold, there’s something interesting about the idea of expanding on the early years, beyond just the flashback that sets Bruce Wayne in motion.
Well, you may as well check out what went on, and get all the more excited for next week’s premiere of the show. »

One of the most interesting new shows landing on television this fall is Fox’s Gotham, which charts the rise of Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie) from new cop on the block to the troubled city’s police commissioner long before the Dark Knight ever arrived on the scene. Though a Batman-related show without the pointy-eared crimefighter may sound like a tough sell on paper, trailers for the series have done a great job of selling it as a gritty police drama filled with easter eggs for comic-book aficionados.
The brief new teaser for Gotham focuses on Gordon’s reputation as the city’s white knight, “the last good man in Gotham,” while also teasing gangster Fish Mooney (Jada Pinkett Smith) and familiar faces Selina Kyle (Camren Bicondova) and Oswald Cobblepot (Robin Lord Taylor). The show is set to be filled with similarly iconic characters from the Batman comic-book mythology, including »

iZombie‘s bestie is now a real Hellcat.
TVLine has learned exclusively that Aly Michalka has boarded the comic books-based CW drama in the recurring role of Peyton, roommate and No. 1 gal pal to series star Rose McIver’s Liv, who is a med student-turned-zombie.
Last Man Standing‘s Alexandra Krosney played Peyton in the original iZombie pilot, but was let go shortly after the supernatural series scored a spot on The CW’s midseason schedule.
In addition to her turn fronting The CW’s Hellcats, »
In a changing of the self-titled comedy guard, TV Land announced on Tuesday (July 29) that it has given a series order to "The Gaffigan Show," while also confirming that "Kirstie" has been cancelled after only one season. As you might guess, "The Gaffigan Show" comes from best-selling author and Hot Pockets enthusiast Jim Gaffigan. The single-camera comedy has been ordered for 10 episodes and will shoot in New York, premiering in 2015. Based on Gaffigan's experiences balancing fatherhood, stand-up comedy and "an insatiable appetite," "The Gaffigan Show" has played an interesting version of network hopscotch. The project, created by Gaffigan and Peter Tolan, was developed and shot for CBS in 2013 and then redeveloped and shot this spring. It will now air on TV Land, with Comedy Central securing rights to air episodes one week after their premiere. “I am thrilled that TV Land is giving us this opportunity to do this show that Peter, »

Fox’s upcoming series Gotham, which charts the struggles of Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie) to clean up the streets of Gotham City long before Batman ever arrived on the scene, fared very well at Comic-Con this year. The pilot episode was screened in Hall H on Saturday night to major applause from attendees – in particular, Sean Pertwee’s edgier Alfred Pennyworth was a hit, and audiences also loved Gordon’s action heroics.
Now, a new trailer for the series has arrived, including teases for Oswald Cobblepot’s (Robin Lord Taylor) transformation into the villainous Penguin and a better look at the fateful night in Crime Alley when young Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz) lost his parents to an armed mugger. There’s a lot of other exciting stuff on display in this trailer as well, including some cool lines from Gordon, glimpses of Selina Kyle/Catwoman (Camren Bicondova) and more of »

Fox is ramping up publicity for its buzzy new series Gotham ahead of its September debut, and now, hot on the heels of an appealing teaser for the show, we’ve been treated to a new crop of images by Entertainment Weekly, which featured Gotham in a recent issue. There are no startling revelations in the shots, though I don’t recall seeing much of Wayne Manor, home to a young Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz) and butler Alfred Pennyworth (Sean Pertwee), before this point.
Other pics include shots of protagonist James Gordon (Ben McKenzie), the new addition to the Gotham City Police Department destined to become the troubled city’s police commissioner; ruthless gangster Fish Mooney (Jada Pinkett Smith); Mooney’s underling Oswald Cobblepot (Robin Lord Taylor), who may be developing an affinity for penguins in this series’ run; and Alfred, a much younger iteration of the character than DC Comics »

Most DC comic-book fans are eagerly anticipating this fall’s Gotham, a Fox series that explores the early days of James Gordon (Ben McKenzie), destined to become the city’s Police Commissioner and one of the Caped Crusader’s most trusted allies.
However, the series isn’t just charting Gordon’s backstory - Gotham will also detail the origins of iconic rogues such as Oswald Cobblepot (Robin Lord Taylor), Selina Kyle (Camren Bicondova) and Pamela Isley (Clare Foley), who will one day become The Penguin, Catwoman and Poison Ivy, respectively.
A new set of character posters for the show has surfaced online today, including ones for those aforementioned villains and more, along with a lengthy synopsis. You can check out all of that below, and let us know what you think of the tone Fox is going for with the show thus far. It’s certainly the most anticipated new »

TV’s erstwhile Lex Luthor is up to his old tricks, this time faking it as a clergyman.
The single-camera comedy from Christopher Vane (Suddenly Susan, Bill Engvall) follows a deep-in-debt scalawag who lies low in a small town by passing himself off as the gay pastor the local church recently hired.
Since wrapping his Smallville run, Rosenbaum’s TV credits have included the Fox comedy Breaking In and NBC’s Will Ferrell-produced, 1960s-set midseason comedy Mission Control, opposite Krysten Ritter (though his role, »
I’m not going to lie, I was a bit worried before reading the first reactions to Fox’s new Batman prequel series, Gotham. I’m incredibly excited for the show, and seriously hope that it lives up to its potential. However, one could easily see where the series could go horribly, horribly wrong, and many were left skeptical by its first trailer.
Sure, it will be great to see a Batman show on television, but the series runs the risk of falling into typical prequel tropes, and spending too much time winking at the audience instead of telling good stories that fully utilize the Gotham-before-Batman concept.
Well, if these early reactions are any indication, we have nothing to worry about, because Gotham appears to have delivered on its promises and established a great foundation for what we hope is a stellar season. The pilot episode was screened for »

It was only a week ago that Fox announced it had picked up Gotham to series, which means we’ll be getting 16 episodes that will air on Monday nights at 8pm staring in the fall. Since then, we’ve seen a few promo images, plot details, and a great trailer that give us a clear picture of what to expect from the Batman-less prequel.
Now, the marketing push continues, as over a dozen new images have been released. We’re treated to a shot of detective Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie) talking to a young Bruce Wayne, presumably at his parents’ crime scene, and we also see a glimpse of what looks like an intense showdown between Gordon and the future Penguin, Oswald Cobblepot (Robin Lord Taylor). We also get a look at Penguin’s boss, Fish Mooney (Jada Pinkett Smith), and Gordon’s partner, Harvey Bullock, (Donal Logue) at a slaughterhouse. »

The first trailer for The Flash will debut after this week’s season finale of Arrow on Wednesday, but a new promo for that episode has offered up a very brief look at the iconic DC superhero speeding into action.
For a TV budget, the effects appear to be very impressive, and should help put aside any doubts over whether or not The CW will be equipped to do the Scarlet Speedster justice on the small screen. Be sure to wait right until the end, especially as it appears as if Green Arrow will also be in The Flash pilot!
Of course, The Flash will be joined this Autumn not only by a third season of Arrow, but also Constantine and Gotham. The latter series has today released a lengthy new synopsis for the Batman prequel along with a great batch of character promo images and stills from the highly anticipated pilot episode. »

Fox has released a series of new character photos for their amazing-looking new series, Gotham. They feature characters such as Catwoman, Bruce Wayne, Sarah Essen, Jim Gordon, Harvey Bullock, Barbara Kean, Fish Mooney, The Penguin, and Alfred the Butler. EW also released an image of Gordon roughing Cobblepot up a bit. Then there's a new synopsis that confirms the appearance of not only Joker, but Two-Face as well! Check it out below.
Before there was Batman, there was Gotham. Everyone knows the name Commissioner Gordon. He is one of the crime world’s greatest foes, a man whose reputation is synonymous with law and order. But what is known of Gordon’s story and his rise from rookie detective to Police Commissioner?

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 »

In case you hadn't guessed from the trailers being released for this new series, Fox has announced that they are officially giving a full 22 episode season order to Gotham. There's a huge audience out there for a show like this, and from what I have seen of it so far, it looks like it's going to deliver the goods. If you haven't seen the trailer for the show yet, click here.
The pilot episode was shot recently, and the network obviously really liked what they saw. The series stars Ben McKenzie as a young James Gordon, Donal Logue as Harvey Bullock, Jada Pinkett Smith as Fish Mooney, David Mazouz as Bruce Wayne, Robin Lord Taylor as Penguin, Cory Michael Smith as Riddler, and Carmen Bicondova as Catwoman. According to the report, the Joker will even have a role in the series. You can check out all of the character photos by clicking here. »

It was announced this morning that Fox had picked up the new Batman-inspired television series "Gotham" for at least a 13-episode run and now the first teaser trailer for the series has premiered ahead of its TV debut during "24: Live Another Day tonight. Entertainment Weekly has the trailer premiere writing: You'll get your first close look the Gotham skyline (modern, familiar, yet not too close to any one American city), glimpses of the murder of Bruce Wayne's parents, a couple shots of Det. Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie), and moments showing a young Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor, with umbrella!), Catwoman (Camren Bicondova, on gargoyle perch), The Riddler (Cory Michael Smith, looking creepily sly as a Gotham P.D. forensic tech) and Poison Ivy (taking care of a plant, naturally). While this is inspired by the DC Comics' Batman series it's my understanding this won't actually feature Batman as Gordon »

A riveting Southern gothic revenge thriller — a suspenseful reinvigoration of the genre — that seems to be over in the first 20 minutes, and then finds horrific new places to take you. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing
I’m “biast” (con): nothing
(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)
You know all those action flicks in which tough badasses just want to be left alone but someone done them wrong and now they’re all torn up about how they have to go stalking for bloody, violent revenge that they’d really rather not have to do, honestly? Yeah, none of those movies can ever hope to ring true ever again. Not after Blue Ruin, which has shot out of nowhere to reinvigorate the genre in a way that shouldn’t be unexpected, but is.
What’s startling here? A genuine sense of humanity, and a genuine sense »

This weekend's horror offering, Hammer's The Quiet Ones (review), is supposedly based upon true events. So we figured we'd look around and come up with the actual video of said events. Curious? Take a look!
The film draws inspiration from the Philip Experiment of 1972, in which Canadian academic researchers tried to prove that telekinesis, poltergeists, and the like manifest solely through the human mind.
A quick trip to YouTube yielded some fruits for us paranormal-loving souls. The video you see below contains actual footage from the aforementioned experiment, and honestly? It's pretty damned interesting. Check it out, and tell us what you make of it!
The Quiet Ones is written and directed by John Pogue (Quarantine 2) and stars Jared Harris ("Mad Men," The Ward), Sam Claflin (Snow White and the Huntsman, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire), Erin Richards ("Breaking In," "Being Human"), Olivia Cooke ("The Secret of Crickley Hall," "The »
