'Gotham' On Fox: Talking Superheroes And Cops With The Man Behind The Show
Huffington Post - over 2 years
One of the most hotly anticipated fall shows is Fox's "Gotham," which chronicles the career of police detective James Gordon, the man who goes on to be Commissioner Gordon in the Batman universe. The opening moments of the "Gotham" pilot, which will be screened next week at Comic-Con in San Diego, depict the murder of young Bruce Wayne's parents -- the cornerstone of the Batman myth. But while Wayne and his butler Alfred are part of the show, the drama doesn't revolve around them. "Gotham" stars Ben McKenzie as Gordon, who is uneasily partnered with the shady cop Harvey Bullock (Donal Logue). At a panel discussion of "Gotham" at the Television Critics Association press tour on Sunday, executive producer Bruno Heller discussed making a superhero show that is essentially without a superhero. "The show is all about, how do you deal with crime at this level when there are no superheroes," Heller said. "It's about ordinary, mortal men and women and the struggle they are engaged i ...

What To Watch On Netflix, Part 3: Overlooked Gems
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Now that I've got the Classics and the Pretty Good Bets lists out of the way, welcome to my list of Netflix's Overlooked Gems. This was the Netflix recommendation roster I had the most fun compiling (it's not every day that having watched so much cult TV comes in handy). Adding to the fun: This list comes with a cherry on top, in the form of some exciting news. HuffPost TV can exclusively reveal that all five seasons of the much-loved NBC spy drama "Chuck" will be available in the U.S. for streaming on Netflix on Nov. 1. "Chuck" is a good poster child for this list, which is all about shows with fervent but smallish fan bases -- these are all shows that, for one reason or another, deserve wider attention but in many cases weren't big hits when they first aired. It truly brings me joy to recommend these kinds of shows to people who may be unfamiliar with them; if there's one thing I've become convinced of in my time as a TV critic, it's that there is a great deal of enjoyment to be ...

Copper Will Air Its Final Episode This Sunday On BBC America
Boom Tron - over 3 years
It seems there was a casualty as a result of Orphan Black’s success on BBC America. While Tatiana Maslany was dazzling audiences with her ability to play five different characters at once, another drama was quietly burning out. Copper was the big, bright star on BBC America once upon a time. But everyone seems to have forgotten about it and as a result it has received an almost unjust cancellation. I say almost unjust because, while it sucks that a good series is being taken off the air because of a silly thing as low ratings, it’s important to acknowledge that something about the show pushed viewers away rather than attracting more. I referred to Copper as a casualty of Orphan Black’s success, but that’s not a fair statement. Orphan Black didn’t murder this show, but it certainly provided an alternative. And, let’s face it,’ Copper’s story, while interesting, doesn’t beat clone conspiracies. So here we are; Copper’s second season will be its last and this Sunday’s season finale wi ...

The Tuesday Playlist: Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Dads Premiere; Covert Affairs, Suits Depart
Seattle Pi - over 3 years
Even gifted veterans like Martin Mull and Peter Riegert, as obnoxiously exasperating parents who move in with their dismally unpleasant business-partner sons (a flip Seth Green and whiny Giovanni Ribisi), can't do much to elevate material that in the pilot episode (Tuesday, 8/7c) fancies itself shocking when it stoops to racially insensitive humor - and in next week's second episode, falls back on the tired cliché of everyone acting goofy when stoned on pot brownies. Whereas Brooklyn Nine-Nine (8:30/7:30c), a police comedy that aspires to the humanistic grit and heart of a Barney Miller, earns its badge of distinction with smart irreverence and sharply defined characters in an admirably diverse ensemble, led by Saturday Night Live ex-pat Andy Samberg as Jake Peralta, the precinct cut-up who's actually a first-rate detective, and the estimable Andre Braugher proving a deft hand at subtle comedy as the Nine-Nine's deadpan new captain Ray Holt, whose intriguing back story makes him mu ...

Susan Michals: The Bad, Bad Boys of Copper Talk Body Count, Getting Laid and Beards
Huffington Post - over 3 years
(Kevin Ryan, Kyle Schmid and Donal Logue on the set of Copper. All images courtesy of BBC America) When we last tuned in to BBC America's Copper Detective Kevin Corcoran (Tom Weston-Jones) was racing to keep his world -- NYC and the other facets of his life -- intact. The Five Points were in complete upheaval, Corky's best pal and right hand Frances Maguire had turned out to have slept with his wife and killed a bunch of people, and Corcoran's turned to morphine for solace. (Suffice to say, he's not the only one -- you'll see in season two). On Sunday June 23rd, season two of Copper debuts with the Corky's neighborhood upping the drama and amping the crazy -- it's turning into a regulard Sodom and Gomorrah, 19th century style. Frances Maguire (Kevin Ryan) has got a brand new bag, (and a haircut) Robert Morehouse (Kyle Schmid) is never going to change, and there's a new bad boy on the block: Brendan Donovan, aka Donal Logue (who we'll see returning as well to "Sons of A ...

Season 2 Will Be 'Gobsmacking'
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
SPOILER ALERT: Do not read on unless you have seen the Season 1 finale of History's "Vikings," titled "All Change." The season finale of "Vikings" saw Ragnar Lothbrok (Travis Fimmel) embark on a quest to negotiate peace in a land dispute between King Horik (Donal Logue) and Jarl Borg (Thorbjørn Harr), leaving wife Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick) in Kattegat where a sudden and deadly plague claimed many lives -- including their daughter's. On his trip to Gotaland, we saw Ragnar tempted by the mysterious Aslaug (Alyssa Sutherland), and the chemistry between them now threatens to undo Ragnar's family completely. The Huffington Post spoke to "Vikings" creator Michael Hirst about the surprising events of "All Change" and where our characters might go from here, since "Vikings" has already been renewed for Season 2. Tread lightly, there are potential spoilers for future seasons ahead. You wrote the "Vikings" finale without knowing whether the show was picked up for a second sea ...

Maureen Ryan: The Good, The Bad And The Ugly Of 'Sons Of Anarchy's' Fifth Season
Huffington Post - about 4 years
Don't read on unless you've seen the Season 5 finale of "Sons of Anarchy," titled "J'ai Obtenu Cette." Well, I'll give this to the Season 5 finale of "Sons of Anarchy": It didn't enrage me. Last year's minutes -- and the season as a whole, really -- capped an extensive bait and switch, in which the FX drama cataloged Clay Morrow's sins and then allowed him to evade death through a series of clunky, last-minute developments that made me feel as if the show had just hung a "Kick me!" sign on its audience's back. var src_url="http://pshared.5min.com/Scripts/PlayerSeed.js?playList=517571356&height=315&width=600&sid=577&origin=undefined&videoGroupID=138596&relatedNumOfResults=100&relatedMode=2&relatedBottomHeight=60&hasCompanion=false&cbCustomID=videoCompAdDiv&autoStart=false&colorPallet=%23FF0000&videoControlDisplayColor=%23191919&shuffle=0&continuous=true"; if (typeof(commercial_video) == "object") { src_ur ...

You Might Be Able to Help the Awesome ‘Terriers’ Return As a Movie
Film School Rejects - over 4 years
It’s a tale as old as TV: great show gets made, nobody watches the first season, the network cancels it before it can find an audience, and then the small but dedicated fan base bitches and complains for the next ten years about how it needs to be brought back, or how there should at least be a movie made out of the property so that they can get some closure. Sometimes, like with Netflix reviving Arrested Development or Firefly spawning the Serenity movie, the fans get their wish and a beloved property ends up getting a second life. But, nine times out of ten, great shows that were gone too soon are dead for good, and all of the whining, complaining, and online petitions in the world won’t do anything to bring them back. The media landscape is changing though, and new technologies and new means of rallying people together are making it easier and easier for creators to take control of their content and not rely on big TV networks or big movie studios to get their stuff produced and ...
