For starters, much beleaguered Barbara Kean (Erin Richards) finally (finally!) does something. After attacking Dr. Thompkins (Morena Baccarin) toward the end […]Read On »

In Part 2 of our exclusive interview with Robin Lord Taylor, who plays Oswald Cobblepot/the Penguin on Fox’s GOTHAM, the actor discusses the Oswald/Jim Gordon relationship, his work on THE WALKING DEAD and more. Read Part 1 here. AX: Oswald has a very complicated relationship with Gotham police detective Jim Gordon [Ben McKenzie]. How would you describe it?

I think deep down, he actually […]Read On »

Fox’s Monday-night hit GOTHAM, developed by executive producer Bruno Heller from the DC Comics BATMAN series, tells the story of that legendary metropolis before Bruce Wayne became the Caped Crusader.

In Fox’s GOTHAM, Mondays at 8 PM, a good woman – and for that matter, a good doctor who isn’t running psychotic experiments – is hard to find. Luckily, Gotham City Police Department homicide detective Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie) has encountered the upright Dr. Leslie “Lee” Tompkins, played by Morena Baccarin, when they were both stationed at Arkham Asylum. Now that Gordon is officially back the the GCPD, he’s a little nonplused to find his new girlfriend has just been hired as the city coroner, though Lee seems perfectly happy with this turn of events. GOTHAM isn’t Baccarin’s first foray […]Read On »

Obviously, maybe he’ll reappear in future episodes and this […]Read On »

That’s what we got with “The Fearsome Dr. […]Read On »
