Howdy, folks!

OUaT Season Premiere – A Chilly Opening

With the heaps of season and series premieres that accompany each fall, one show which I’ve been waiting for has been “Once Upon a Time.” I watch this show and treat it as something of a guilty pleasure; I don’t particularly enjoy it, it’s really not all that good, but I watch it weekly all the same, in the hopes that something really interesting will happen. The show’s creators, in an effort to make fans squee/to cash in on Disney’s biggest singular success in recent years, has hopped onto the “Frozen” bandwagon.

...The slash/incest fanfiction is just gonna blow up, isn't it?

Naturally, I tuned in to watch what they would do with, apparently, everyone’s favourite sister duo.

There you have the list and videos for some of the shows coming out this fall, hope you will check back with us as we give you what we hope to see this upcoming season and for show recaps throughout the season.

New Trailer for ‘Gotham’

There is a new trailer out for Gotham:

Really it does not give us anything that we don’t already know, but I like the focus on Jim Gordon.  Honestly finding out more about him is one of the things making me excited for the show. I want to see Gordon and his development and what it is about Gordon that makes Batman trust him.  Also I want to see Gordon’s interactions with the villains, especially Selina Kyle, I wonder if he will play a part in keeping her from becoming worse.

What do you think about the new trailer, are you excited to learn more about Jim Gordon?

 

First Look at ‘Gotham’

There is a first look trailer out for Gotham, where they give us some more footage of the show but also explain more about it.

I will say this, every trailer or video I see for the show looks amazing so I am really hoping that the show looks like this for real and that its not just some amazing editing job.  Here are somethings that they went over in this video that I really like.

  • I like the fact that the show will be more of a detective show then another comic show.  I like this because I feel like they can do more with the show if they focus on that element and just make sure to make the DC characters the main cast.  What I think people forget sometimes is that a lot happens in Gotham; drug deals, murder, rape, muggings, poverty, etc.  Everyone gets focused on the villains that they forget there are other aspects of the city that Batman fights.  If they focus on that then we will really get to see the destruction and corruption of this city and why Batman is needed.  I am sure that all the other gritty aspects of Gotham are what caused the villains to become who they are.  I think making this a detective drama and using the characters that we know and love as the main cast is the right idea.  This way we can see how they become who they are and why Gotham is so bad.
  • I also like how they mention more of the villains that have yet to be cast, that tells us they have plans for them and that we will be seeing more villains throughout the show.  I guess right now they are seeing how the show does and if it does well then they will be adding more.  I am looking forward to seeing more of the villains pop up.
  • I am intrigued to learn more about Gordon, since he really is the main focus.  We all know Batman’s story, we have read it and seen it a millions times.  We really don’t know Gordon’s, so I have been enjoying seeing all of his scenes.  He looks like an interesting character that it will be great to see how he becomes the police commission and how he manages to keep is good heart and undying belief in the city.

I think if they writers and creators keep going the way that they are this show could do really well.  It already has an amazing following just from DC alone.  Everyone knows that Batman is the bread and butter of the DC universe.  It was smart for the show to include little Bruce Wayne as a cast member.  I think this show has a lot of potential to do really well.

What did you like about this video? What are you looking forward to the most?

‘Gotham’ spotlights some of the villains

In a new short clip from Fox’s Gotham, they spotlight Catwoman, The Penguin, and Fish Mooney.

The clip is short but it does tell us that young Selina Kyle, Oswald Cobblepot and Fish Mooney are going to major villains.  I am not sure if it’s for the whole series or if it is just for the first season. I’m pretty is it will be for the whole series, well maybe not for Fish Mooney since the Penguin works for her.  At the same time it is nice get a slight idea how these villains are going to be worked into the series.  We already know that The Riddler and Poison Ivy are also going to be in the series and have already been cast.  The Riddler is working in the forensics department of the Gotham PD.  Fish Mooney is a business women/crime boss in the city.  The Penguin is one of her low-level thugs, it looks like she sends him out to do some of the beatings.  Young Selina Kyle is just a little thief that should not be cornered.  It looks like Gordon and Bullock might have their work cut out for them with this crew.  There is still talks of bringing in the Joker which could also mean seeing Harley Quinn.  As well all know there is a long list of Batman villains still left to be introduced.  I am very interested to see how they put this all together.

CW has releases a teaser and full length trailer for ‘The Flash’

Earlier this week CW released a teaser trailer for The Flash:

It was a good teaser, starting off with Green Arrow which made sense since The Flash is a spin-off of Arrow.  I liked watching The Flash out run the arrow, it was a good way to show The Flash off of anyone who is not familiar with his character.

The day after the teaser trailer was released, CW released a feature-length trailer for The Flash:

This is a long trailer but it gives you all the background information you need to know about The Flash.  For someone new coming into the series or for someone who did not see him on Arrow it is a good trailer.  It does a great job of showing where the show is going to go and the growth of the character.

I plan on checking out the show this fall, it will air on Tuesdays at 8:00 pm EST on CW.
