FOX’s ‘Gotham’ detects its second installment in “Selina Kyle,” as the future Catwoman (Camren Bicondova) finds herself kidnapped by a child-trafficking ring, while Oswald Cobblepot struggles to regain a foothold outside of Gotham City, and Fish Mooney faces Don Carmine Falcone.
Last week saw 'The Legend of Korra' Book 4 "Balance"s first trailer giving fans quite a shock in revealing a three-year time jump for the final season, but we won't have to wait nearly as long for a peek at Fridays' premiere. See how the 'Avatar' landscape has changed in the intervening years with our first clip from 'The Legend of Korra' Book 4, as well as a few character sporting all-grown-up looks!
A few weeks ago gave us our first real look at 'Supernatural' season 10 as Demon Dean sang and drank his way through the newest trailer, but why stop there? Get an eyeful of the new season with our first clip from October 7 premiere "Black," as Sam goes pretty well on the dark side to hunt down his demonized brother!
The fifth and final season of 'Boardwalk Empire' seems to have established a pattern within a pattern, where everything feels so scattered. The plot threads are dangling and frayed and yet, slowly a couple of threads find their way together before an abrupt and violent tug jerks yet a couple more into position by episode's end. This season more than any other feels elusive in meaning -- as cold and distant as Nucky himself -- and at the same time, it all reads a bit on the nose.
FOX Batman prequel drama 'Gotham' notably divided critics and fans alike with last week's premiere, while early word on tonight's "Selina Kyle" isn't faring much better, but the pre-superhero TV series is forging full-steam ahead with a rogues gallery of Bat-mythology. A new trailer for the upcoming season reveals not only David Zayas as Sal Maroni, but also Victor Zsasz, Arkham Asylum, and potentially even a nod to the villainous Scarecrow!
Showtime may have said a temporary farewell to 'Masters of Sex' and 'Ray Donovan' with last night's season 2 finales, but Sunday powerhouse 'Homeland' will begin anew in two weeks time with its October 5 season 4 premiere. To wit, the first clip from two-hour premiere opener "Drone Queen" has arrived, offering a bit of insight into Carrie's new foreign objective abroad, and what Corey Stoll's character has to do with it all.
Welcome back to another installment of the Monday Morning Critic. In this space each week, I’ll be looking at the week that was in addition to the week ahead in television. The format will shift each week, as the world of TV will dictate the form and content of each piece.

And lo, 'The Simpsons' has begun its 26th season on a bittersweet, if ultimately uplifting note, as a memorable character greeted the grim reaper after many years in the background. Last night's season premiere "Clown in the Dumps" also brought with it the longrunning FOX animation staple's most unusual couch gag yet, as created by artist Don Hertzfeldt, so check both out with the latest from last night's premiere!
HBO's 'The Newsroom' has never quite earned creator Aaron Sorkin the acclaim of its TV predecessors, but we'll be sad to see it go all the same when the first of a final 6 episodes premiere on November 9. Our latest behind-the-scenes look at season 3 confirms that the topical drama will tackle government whistle-blowers, also revealing that 'The Office' star B.J. Novak will join Kat Dennings among the major guest stars for the season.
'American Horror Story: Freak Show' has promised to show us all manner of unusual people from every walk of life, its increasingly grotesque teasers highlighting everything from three legs to clowns that haunt our dreams forever, but now season 4 has a growth of its very own. Our October 8 premiere of 'American Horror Story: Freak Show' has officially expanded to 90 minutes!
