This weekend, two of the greatest TV shows in existence will meet up episodically for the first time, as Futurama’s Planet Express crew heads to The Simpsons for a partially out of this world crossover episode called “Simpsoroma.” It’s a dream come true for fans like myself, and Fox has released a few stills from the episode to embiggen fans’ excitement.
Only a few days after it was announced that Fox’s Gotham was going under the hood to bring iconic villain Scarecrow to TV audiences, we now have our first look at one of the other 700 Batman villains currently calling Gotham City home. Ladies and gentlemen, Mr. Harvey Dent.
Gotham has made it its mission to introduce viewers to as many future Batman villains as possible, and now one is on the way that is especially frightening...well, he will be in a couple decades, that is.
Fox’s Gotham has gotten off to a pretty villainous start, with a slew of heavy hitting names wreaking havoc in the big city. While Carmine Falcone, Fish Mooney, and Salvatore Maroni all have their finer points, the most fascinating character to watch has been Oswald Cobblepot, a young villain with bold aspirations.
After consistently failing to find an audience or any kind of love among reality TV addicts, Fox has finally pulled the plug on their self-described “social experiment,” Utopia. The news is hardly a surprise, but while many are gleefully warbling “I told you so” across Twitter, few are remembering exactly how much this reality show cost the network.
Anyone who has ever seen an episode of Arrested Development knows that it is about a selfish and totally messed up family who loses their fortune and gets into wacky shenanigans while coming to terms with their new monetary status. However, recently creator Mitch Hurwitz announced that originally Arrested Development was based around two clear premises that never made it into the show.
A recent extended episode order means we’re getting more Gotham, which means more bad guys’ foolishly concocted plans will come to light. And while we’re fine with Harvey Dent and his prophetic coin coming into this, here are ten villains from Batman’s history that we hope stay gloriously absent from Gotham’s underworld.
Love has stayed outside the acting spotlight for the past decade or so, dealing more with behind the scenes drama. She reemerged on FX’s Sons of Anarchy this season, and now she's got this new gig. Will Love find her third calling as a TV star now?
With all the villains that plague Gotham, protagonists like Jim Gordon are at a severe disadvantage. Fortunately, another good guy has joined the ranks. Firefly actress Morena Baccarin will recur as this pivotal character from the Batman mythos.
Typically by this point in October, we’ve seen the networks go ahead and cancel a show or four. Yet, today is October 22 and not only have no shows been canceled, one network has even gone against prediction, twice, to keep poorly performing shows on air.
It’s not uncommon for popular TV shows to have to go to court every once and a while. Shows get sued by disgruntled employees, they get sued for copyright infringement, they get sued for on-set injuries, but I’m not sure I’ve ever heard of a lawsuit that is more ludicrous than the one Fox and The Simpsons is currently having to deal with.
A recent episode titled “I Slipped” involved some in-the-bedroom action between Mindy (Mindy Kaling) and boyfriend Danny (Chris Messina) where he “accidentally” sticks it in the wrong place, a plotline that has become the center of some conversations about sexual consent on television.
Al Jean has been with The Simpsons for as long as the animated comedy has been around, signing on as one of the show’s first writers in 1989. In the years since, he’s also served as an executive producer and showrunner on the series. The man has experience with the show and recently spoke out to give us the ending he hopes Fox’s animated series will have.
Have you ever wondered what it is like to work on a TV show? Donal Logue has been on a ton of diverse programs, including Terriers, Grounded For Life, Vikings and Copper. Obviously, the man has no beef with working on television, but if you are guessing working on the small screen is a cake walk, guess again.
Is Ryan Murphy running out of ideas? This week Fox has decided to go straight to series with the latest endeavor from Ryan Murphy, along with Glee co-creator Brad Falchuk, Glee producer Ian Brennan and American Horror Story producer Dante Di Loreto. The new project is described as a horror anthology series crossed with a comedy based in a school.
