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 Season 4 of GOTHAM, Thursday nights on Fox, it appeared that young Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz) had killed Alexander Siddig’s character, the enigmatic and nefarious Ra’s al Ghul. However, this is GOTHAM, where the dead don’t always stay dead. Moreover, Siddig remains in the opening credits and has appeared in previews for future episodes, so it seems Ra’s isn’t done tormenting the future Batman just yet. The Sudan-born, English-educated Siddig has major genre cred. Siddig spent seven years as Dr. Julian Bashir in STAR TREK: DEEP SPACE NINE. Other genre work includes REIGN OF FIRE (dragons), PRIMEVAL (dinosaurs), the […]Read On »

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

Stars: Christian Slater, Megan Mullally, Bret Harrison, Alphonso McAuley, Erin Richards, Jennifer Irwin, Odette Annable Writer: Adam F. 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 »
