BoJack Horseman is the best of all of Netflix's original series, and one of the best shows on television. In its third season, which was released on Friday, the series about an incredibly rich, famous, and depressed acting horse somehow became even darker and more experimental, and the season's fourth installment — which I discussed at length with BoJack creator Raphael Bob-Waksberg — may turn out to be the best episode of TV anyone will make this year(*). (*) Hey, other streaming shows: BoJack should be an object lesson in how to tell a deeply serialized story across an entire season while still making individual episodes stand out as more than just pieces of the whole. Now that the season's out there, and many of you have had a chance to watch the whole thing, I'm going to do miniature reviews of each episode — with full spoilers for the whole season — coming up »

We recently found out that Tricia Helfer (Battlestar Galactica, Powers, Suits) had joined the cast of the second season of Fox's Lucifer as the mother of the titular Devil and his brother Amenadiel (D.B. Woodside), and now thanks to TV Line we have our first official look at the character following some sneaky set snaps. “I heard it put, ‘She’s not really that much older [than Lucifer and Amenadiel],’ Helfer explained to the site. “But it will all make sense once you see it. We’re not going to leave people guessing. There’s been enough of that with the concern that she’s escaped from Hell.” "Trapped in Hell for thousands of years by God (her ex-husband), the Mother of Angels is now free on Earth.

Trapped in Hell for thousands of years by God (her ex-husband), the Mother of Angels is now free on Earth. Once reunited with Lucifer, it will become clear that she’s the one he takes after. Mom is fearless and has a strong conviction for who she is and what she deserves. However, mother and son do not share the same opinion when it comes to humanity.

Moments make up our lives. Whether they are big moments or small moments, we can always recall one particular moment out of a memory. Final moments in particular are something we always remember and play a huge part in how we look back at something. For television series this is most especially true as the ending of a series either secures or damages its legacy. We’ve seen this a number of times in the last few years with shows such as Breaking Bad, The Sopranos, Battlestar Galactica and Lost. It is fitting, then, that final moments were a central theme in Person of Interest’s series finale.

The CW is really bringing out the big guns for Supergirl. Set for its big move to the network from CBS this fall, the series will officially introduce Kara Danvers' (Melissa Benoist's) famous cousin Superman (Tyler Hoechlin) to the series right out of the gate in the first two episodes of the season. But that's not all! Wonder Woman herself, Lynda Carter, will join the cast as the President of the United States. Not since Battlestar Galactica's Laura Roslin have we been this excited for a commander in chief. Carter is locked for multiple episodes and will first appear in episode three. So one smooth move from Superman to Wonder Woman. Carter was crowned Miss World America in 1972 and most famously played Wonder Woman from 1975-1979 in the now iconic television series. Supergirl has been known to bring in actors who've played superheroes previously as a tip of the hat to fans, »

Tricia Helfer is set to play the mother from Hell. No, really, actually from Hell — the Battlestar Galactica alum has been cast as the Devil’s mom in Lucifer, Fox’s show loosely (very loosely) based on the Lucifer DC Comics series that is itself a spin-off of Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman. The model-turned-actress has got alluringly devious down, so this seems like an excellent fit. Season 1 of Lucifer ended with the Prince of Darkness being tasked by God with capturing a soul that’s escaped from Hell. That soul is none other than Lucifer’s mum. Here is the official character description for Helfer’s character, named Charlotte: “Trapped in Hell for thousands of years by God (her ex-husband), the Mother of Angels is now free on Earth. Once reunited with Lucifer, it will become clear that she’s the one he takes after. Mom is fearless and »

It's no surprise Lucifer's mom would have a megawatt smile.
Helfer will recur for all of Lucifer Season 2 and the mother/son storyline is expected to be the central storyline of the season.
The story, as was teased on Lucifer Season 1 Episode 13, goes that Charlotte has been trapped in Hell for thousands of years by her ex-husband, God.
The Mother of Angels is now freed and walking the earth, where she is united with her sons.
As soon as they start spending a little time together, it will become abundantly clear Lucifer doesn't fall from from his mother's side of the family tree.
Charlotte is fearless and has a strong conviction for who she is and what she does.
However, where she parts ways with her son is in her feelings on humanity. »
