On Fox’s GOTHAM, Monday nights at 8 PM, we are in DC’s BATMAN universe. However, right now, Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz) is still a youth who is only beginning to contemplate how he may fight crime in the city of his birth. For now, trying to uphold the law falls to Gotham City police detective Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie), an upright soul in the midst of profound corruption. A prime – albeit likable – example of this corruption can be found right at Gordon’s side in the person of his police partner Harvey Bullock, played by Donal Logue. Harvey has […]Read On »

GOTHAM creator Bruno Heller talks young Batman – Exclusive Interview

GOTHAM logo | ©2014 Fox

Fox’s GOTHAM, premiering Monday, September 22 at 8 PM, depicts Bruce Wayne as a teen orphan played by David Mazouz, before he dons Batman’s cowl. This might draw comparisons to SMALLVILLE, which dramatized the early life of Superman, another DC Comics hero, but GOTHAM has a much more adult feel. Detective Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie) – who BATMAN fans know will one day become Gotham City’s police commissioner – is at the center of the action, surrounded by people who give indications that they will someday become iconic figures in this universe, including Catwoman, the Penguin and the Riddler.

THE STRAIN creator Guillermo del Toro on his new nasty vamp series

FX’s new series THE STRAIN, Sundays at 10 PM, brings horror back to the vampire mythology. Forget the charmers of TRUE BLOOD, BEING HUMAN, et al, or even Bela Lugosi – these things are hideous, terrifying and breeding like Ebola virus. Worse, they’re in New York City. Center for Disease Control researchers Ephraim Goodweather (Corey Stoll) and Nora Martinez (Mia Maestro) want to combat the plague, but so far aren’t sure how to do so; pawn shop owner Abraham Setrakian (David Bradley), who’s had experience with the creatures before, and city exterminator Vasily Fet (Kevin Durand) may have some ideas.

Exclusive Interview: ARROW star Stephen Amell suits up

ARROW is the new CW top rated series and stars Stephen Amell in the starring role of Oliver Queen/Arrow. If you watched SMALLVILLE you probably were a fan of Justin Hartley’s role as the Green Arrow/Oliver Queen and at first you may find it a bit strange to see Amell in the same role, but that won’t last long. In the D.C. comic book Green Arrow had bright blonde hair with a blond goatee, and wore a small mask to hide his identity. In the television show Arrow wears only a green hood, large enough to hide his face in […]Read On »

CD Review: GREEN LANTERN original soundtrack

Not only does this summer stand as having the some of the strongest superhero movies in memory row, but also for having two of those pictures feature characters who were likely voted most impossible to pull off for live action. First there was the mystical might of the Marvel god THOR, whose Asgardian grandeur was impressively hammered in by Patrick Doyle with a symphonic/ percussive score that virtually rebooted Doyle’s old-school orchestral sound to new levels of young Hollywood hipness. Then in the DC corner, there’s the GREEN LANTERN, Earth’s recruit to a legion of space cops who make the […]Read On »

Stars: Tom Welling, Erica Durance, Justin Hartley, Cassidy Freeman Writer: Genevieve Sparling Director: James Marshall Network: The CW, airs Friday nights Original Telecast:  October 22, 2010 EDITOR’S NOTE: Even though SMALLVILLE is over, ASSIGNMENT X missed a few episodes during Season 10 and will be filling in the reviews during the summer as The CW re-airs the show. It’s amazing how SMALLVILLE has really dove head-first into the Clark (Tom Welling) and Lois (Erica Durance) romance this year – particularly with the knowledge that Lois knows Clark is the Blur and Clark wanting to tell Lois he is the Blur.
