In Fox’s Monday-night drama thriller PRODIGAL SON, Tom Payne plays the title character, Malcolm Bright. Malcolm is a profiler of murderers, hired as a consultant at the NYPD after he’s fired by the FBI.

After five seasons of showing how young Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz) became Batman, Fox’s GOTHAM will jump ahead ten years in its series finale on Thursday, April 25. All of the characters we’ve been watching will have come into their own. Of all of GOTHAM’s distinct individuals, perhaps the most surprising has been Oswald Cobblepot, aka the Penguin, as played by Robin Lord Taylor. Known in the Batman canon to be venal and villainous, Taylor’s Penguin is unexpectedly sympathetic, a strangely stubborn, vulnerable underdog who makes us root for his survival, if not necessarily his victory. “The collaborative aspect has really […]Read On »

GOTHAM, Fox Network’s drama about the journey of young Bruce Wayne (played by David Mazouz) to becoming Batman, is in its fifth and final twelve-episode season on Thursday nights. The series will culminate in an episode that shows Gotham City and its denizens ten years later, when Batman finally comes into his own, as do his enemies. Most of the major cast and creatives do a Q&A panel for the Television Critics Association press tour, and then everybody starts hugging each other. From all evidence, it seems like they’ve all loved their time on the show, their characters and one […]Read On »

As Fox Network’s Thursday-night GOTHAM heads towards its Season 4 finale, the title city is descending into chaos, courtesy of the mad followers of proto-Joker Jerome Valeska (Cameron Monaghan).

In Season 3 of LUCIFER, Monday nights on Fox Network, there are a lot of characters with exotic backgrounds. There is of course the title character (Tom Ellis), who is literally the Devil; his angel brother Amenadiel (DB Woodside); the demon Mazakeen (Lesley-Ann Brandt), formerly Lucifer’s minion and Amenadiel’s lover, now heartily annoyed at both of them; and lawyer Charlotte Richards (Tricia Helfer), whose body was inhabited for awhile (though no longer) by the goddess of all creation, aka Lucifer and Amenadiel’s mom. Sorting through all of this is psychotherapist Linda Martin, played by Rachael Harris. Linda is a regular […]Read On »

GOTHAM: Alexander Siddig talks the return of Ra al Ghul – exclusive interview

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 »

On Fox Network’s 9-1-1, currently in its first season on Wednesday nights and already renewed for a second, we follow police officers and firefighters and the emergency call center that tells them where the newest crisis is happening. Rockmond Dunbar’s character Michael Grant is not a firefighter or a cop or even a 9-1-1 operator. Michael is married to police officer Athena Grant, played by Angela Bassett, who is also one of 9-1-1’s executive producers. The marriage is under some strain, to put it mildly. Michael has just come out relatively late in life as gay and is in a […]Read On »
