Welcome to Gotham: Your Guide to the Good, the Bad and the... Batty

19 September 2014 10:40 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

As Fox’s Gotham swoops onto TV screens this Monday at 8/7c, you will in short order be introduced to a bevy of denizens of the titular city.

Photos Fall TV’s Breakout Stars: Gotham‘s Penguin, a Virgin and 12 Others!

Chronicling the rise of Gotham Pd detective/one day commissioner James Gordon (played by Southland‘s Ben McKenzie), the DC Comics-based drama also stars Donal Logue (Sons of Anarchy) as Jim’s begrudging partner Harvey Bullock, while Daviz Mazouz (Touch) fills the iconic role of young Bruce Wayne, who has a dynamic destiny awaiting him.

'Gotham' star Ben McKenzie discusses Jim Gordon's evolution, promises no Rooney episode

18 September 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

You may find other interviews in which "Gotham" star Ben McKenzie discusses the decision to go from a critically admired cop drama ("Southland") to playing a very different sort of officer-of-the-law in Fox's "Gotham." McKenzie has previously talked about the differences between playing a beat cop and a detective, though I think he does it extremely well in our video interview from last week. You may find other interviews in which McKenzie discusses the difficulties finding resources on Jim Gordon's backstory and how that allowed him freedom. I believe McKenzie has talked about his conversations with DC's Geoff Johns and the fact that Gordon won't be getting his trademark mustache any time soon, though he's very amusing in discussing it in this interview. ["At the end of the day, we all know a mustache on me would look ridiculous. It's only a look you can pull off later in your life," he explains.] But I'm prepared to guarantee you with near absolute certainty that this is the only Ben McKenzie interview you'll watch in which the "Gotham" star promises that »

Review: Fox's 'Gotham' gives us a Batman show without Batman

18 September 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A man who decides the best way to fight crime in his native city is to dress up as a giant bat has to be a severely damaged individual on some level. But think about how damaged the city itself has to be for the man to think that the bat costume is necessary. Fox's new drama series "Gotham" (it debuts Monday at 8) wants to dramatize the crumbling infrastructure of Gotham City, which would eventually lead to Batman patrolling its streets. And it wants to play with the many wonderful toys available in that corner of the DC Universe, even if Batman himself can't be one of them, since the series begins with a 12-year-old Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz) witnessing his parents' murder in a dark downtown alley. DC been down this road before with "Smallville," a show that took 10 seasons to let Clark Kent put on the red cape and blue tights, »

Photos – Gotham Premiere Screening Event And VIP Party In New York City

16 September 2014 5:05 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

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. »

2014 Fall Network TV Preview: Mondays

15 September 2014 10:05 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Several network series return this week, but the fall season starts in earnest next week. Before the premieres kick off, here are SoS TV Editor Kate Kulzick and SoS Managing TV Editor Deepayan Sengupta with their initial impressions on the networks’ new offerings.

Note: Our thoughts are based on pilots that are works in progress, so there may be changes to these episodes before they air.

Gotham (8 pm Est, Fox)

Premieres Sept. 22nd, 2014

One of the fall’s most buzzed about new series (the TCA dubbed it the most promising new fall show), Gotham’s pilot succeeds not because of its procedural trappings or comic shoutouts, but because of its smart casting. Ben McKenzie is coming off of a strong run on Southland, one of the more underrated series of the past several years, and he is very comfortable in the shoes of the newly minted Detective Gordon.

Z Nation Preview - Should You Tune In or Shamble On?

10 September 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

If a step-by-step guide were written for how to create a standard zombie narrative, it would be titled "Z Nation." Start with one part outbreak footage, and mix in some overlapping audio clips of news regarding said outbreak.

Simmer it in a stock of basic characters with one part brown-haired stubbly leader, one part love interest, two parts mysterious drifters with unexplained combat prowess, and three parts uninteresting zombie chow to beef up the cast.

Marinade in a standard post-apocalyptic world, equal parts towns trying to make it and traveling caravans with dubious intent. Bake for 45 minutes in standard character dilemmas, adding in a mission to cure the virus for some longevity. Garnish with dialogue.

I try not to be too critical of things for being standard. I can’t expect everyone watching something to have the same breadth of exposure as I do, and in my experience there’s »

In their second annual poll, the Television Critics Association have selected Fox's Gotham as the most promising series of the upcoming season, followed by The CW's Jane the Virgin and Showtime's drama The Affair.
