'Gotham' star Ben McKenzie says the show is tonally similar to the 'Dark Knight' series

14 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

From the looks of the promos, Fox's "Gotham" is going for a gritty tone not unlike that of the "Dark Knight" series - a comparison star Ben McKenzie welcomes. "Yeah, it's similar," said McKenzie when I brought up the comparison. "There are some differences which are sort of hard to explain until you see it. But yeah, very much similar in the sense that it's entirely character based. It's entirely realistic in the sense of - or a heightened realism - in the sense that people are not, people do not have superpowers. They do not, you know, put on a cape and fly off. It is a very bizarre world they're living in, but it's very realistic and it has its own set of rules." Luckily for the former "Southland" star, he didn't have to fight for the central role of future Commissioner James Gordon in the Batman prequel series, »

The gritty police drama “Southland” isn't on the air anymore, but it's just found itself in the middle of a real-life legal battle. The canceled series has been named in a lawsuit alleging that the show's opening montage made unauthorized use of an autopsy photo.

5 Reasons Gotham Needs to Be on Your Fall Must-See List

28 July 2014 3:54 PM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Gotham is one of Fox's most buzzed-about new shows debuting this Fall, and for good reason. I saw the first episode of the Batman-inspired series, and there's a lot to love. The show revolves around James Gordon (Ben McKenzie) as a young detective working his way up the ranks in Gotham. We meet him right as he and his partner Harvey (Donal Logue) take on the murder of one Bruce Wayne's (David Mazouz) parents. The series premieres on Sept. 22, and if you like what you read below, you should definitely check out the trailer. It starts out with a bang . . . literally. Let's be clear about one thing: Gotham isn't the story of Batman. It's the story of James Gordon attempting to clean up the crime-ridden streets of Gotham before a superhero rises up to clear the scum away, and Gordon's story begins with the death of young Bruce's parents. I'm not giving much away here, »

New Gotham Trailer Packed With Easter Eggs

28 July 2014 9:44 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

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 »

Review: AMC's 'Halt and Catch Fire' nears end of season 1

28 July 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Late in last night's episode of AMC's "Halt and Catch Fire," the show's hero, computer salesman Joe MacMillan (Lee Pace), tries to dismiss a competitor who's never experienced the joy of creating something(*). Joe's rival points out that they're both in the computer compatible business, just trying to copy Ibm, and therefore neither can brag much about their flair for originality. (*) As you might expect, this column will have some spoilers for the season to date. Having apparently bested Joe with his own portable Ibm clone, he says, "You tried to be good. We just had to be good enough." It was one of many meta exchanges in the penultimate season 1 episode of "Halt," a series that has not only been reverse-engineered from past cable drama hits, but that seems acutely aware of that fact. So Joe is essentially a 1983 version of Don Draper: a mystery man in expensive suits »

The villains come out to play in new 'Gotham' trailer

27 July 2014 10:48 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

The latest trailer for Fox’s upcoming Gotham is essentially an introduction to the city’s villains before they were famous: Someone tells Oswald Cobblepot he walks like a penguin and Selina Kyle sneaks around all cat-like as a caption warns “villains will rise.” Gotham City sure sounds like a fun place to be!

Ben McKenzie of Southland and The O.C. fame plays James Gordon, a detective struggling to pin down who murdered the young Bruce Wayne’s parents as he encounters obstacles, like Fish Mooney (Jada Pinkett Smith) and Oswald Cobblepot (Robin Lord Taylor), along the way.
