Gotham

In the wake of the success of other super hero shows like the CW’s “Arrow” and ABC’s “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,”

 

 

Fox jumped on the bandwagon with the origin story of the caped crusader and many of his enemies.

 

 

The new installment follows Detective James Gordon who is new to the Gotham City Police Department and the corruption throughout the city.

 

 

The show opens with the death of the Waynes, leaving their son, Bruce, orphaned and Gordon vowing to find the killer.

 

 

Viewers also get a glimpse of other Gothamites like pick-pocket Selena Kyle, crime flunky Oswald Cobblepot, a timid Ivy Pepper (renamed from Pamela Isley) and mobster Fish Mooney.

 

 

Fans of Batman will enjoy the show, if they can get over the drastic origin changes.

 

 

The show appears promising as long as show writers can keep the ball rolling. With the initial rush of character introductions, hopefully it will not burn too bright too fast.


Once Upon a Time

 

Though winter certainly seems to be taking its time to come to Westros in HBO’s Got,” it has arrived in Storybrooke in the form of the latest Disney queen.

 

Elsa and other characters from “Frozen” will be joining the series regulars in the show’s fourth season.

While her intentions are uncertain, it is safe to say she is a force to be reckoned with since she was imprisoned in an urn and locked in Rumpelstiltskin’s vault.

 

As for the rest of the Storybrooke residents, the season picks up right where the third season’s finale left off.

 

Regina’s happiness has once again been spoiled when Emma and Captain Hook brought her new lover Robin Hood’s dead wife Marian back from the past.

 

As if sudden heartbreak was not enough, Regina will feel threatened by Elsa’s arrival.

 

Though the arrival of such a new Disney character seems too soon, it was undoubtedly a move made to boost ratings.

 

And a successful one at that.

 

American Horror Story: Freak Show

 

The latest installment of Ryan Murphy’s Emmy-winning anthology series will take place in 1952 Jupiter, Fla. at one of the last remaining freak shows.

 

 

This season show regular Jessica Lange plays Elsa Mars, a German ex-pat who rescues “freaks” from asylums and prisons.

 

 

Some main attractions of her show include a three-breasted Angela Bassett, a bearded Kathy Bates and a two-headed Sarah Paulso.

Michael Chiklis joins the cast this season as a strong man and show regular Evan Peters returns as the show’s typical heartthrob with a flaw, in this case a pair of claw-like hands.

 

 

Lange’s character is not as evil as last year’s Fiona, but she is still quite villainous, said Murphy.

 

 

The show will also feature a clown Murphy said he worries might give viewers a heart attack.

 

 

While Murphy promises to deliver a genuinely scary clown, some viewers are of little faith after last season’s empty promises to make witches scary.
