In GOTHAM’s fifth and final season, Episode 9, “The Trial of Jim Gordon,” airing Thursday March 7 on Fox, is a special one for series regular Erin Richards. This is not so much because something major happens for Richards’s character, the volatile Barbara Kean, although that’s entirely possible. After all, Barbara has gone from being the girlfriend of Detective Gordon (Ben McKenzie) to psychotic serial killer to gang leader to ambivalent warrior who is pregnant by Gordon, courtesy of a one-afternoon-stand reunion. Barbara has major turns on a regular basis. However, the reason that GOTHAM Season 5 Episode 9 really […]Read On »

In USA Network’s new series MR. ROBOT, Wednesdays at 10 PM, Christian Slater plays the title character. That’s not really his name, of course, and he’s not really a robot, but his name, what he’s like as a human being and what he’s actually up to are all mysteries for now.

Goldberg Director: Seth Gordon Network: Fox, airs Tuesday nights Original Telecast: March 7, 2012 One of the most promising new comedies last Spring was the Christian Slater starrer BREAKING IN on Fox. It’s a series that focused on a security firm run by the brash, unpredictable and enigma-like Oz (Slater) and the wacky employees he has. The series struggled throughout the seven episodes to find the right balance and tone. While I appreciated what the series did, it didn’t bowl me over […]Read On »

When is a show cancelled, but not cancelled? That’s been the mystery behind the Christian Slater comedy BREAKING IN that did pretty good during midseason this year on Fox after AMERICAN IDOL. It wasn’t enough for it to get an official Season 2 renewal, but in recent months, there’s been movement that could bring the series back. Recent extensions on cast contracts have showed that the show has a little bit life left in it, and today at the Summer 2011 Television Critics Association Fox session, Fox Entertainment President Kevin Reilly explained that the show could get an official last […]Read On »

Goldberg Director: Seth Gordon Network: Fox, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: April 6, 2011 Bret Harrison has been a star in need of an excellent vehicle for his everyman charms and comedic timing. While he was great in the two-season REAPER cult series, it didn’t propel him the way it should have. Throw in a strange stint on the second season of V that was trying to make him the comic relief in a show that was in more need of action, drama and actual sci-fi than comedy, […]Read On »
