"Gotham" is definitely up for an exciting season 2. Despite the criticisms on its first season, it didn't stop the show from securing a second and, likely, a third season, as well.
News have already circulated on the Internet about what could be expected from the Batman-inspired series. Despite the development of some villains in the past, big bad ones will be more prominent than ever in the upcoming season, as they start to take over the city and cause chaos everywhere. It's no surprise that the theme of season 2 is "The Rise of the Villains." However, it seems that viewers will not only see the development of villains but of Bruce Wayne's, as well.
Screenrant reports that the latest trailer shows Bruce Wayne, played by David Mazouz, alongside his caretaker Alfred (Sean Pertwee), seemingly exploring a cave. Although it's not confirmed, many suspect that it is under the Wayne Manor and would eventually evolve into his Batcave. Although the clip was too short for any definite details, it will be quite a jump from what viewers have seen of Bruce. Fans agree that young Bruce's story has been the least interesting so far, and so this teaser for the iconic superhero may stir more interest. more >>
Followers of "Once Upon a Time" are all aware of how Season Five is going to bring to life a villainous Emma (Jennifer Morrison) when she sacrificed herself to the darkness in the previous season. But her going to the dark side isn't the only one that fans that should look forward to as the first real promo for the fifth season of the ABC show definitely centered on Merida (Amy Manson) from Disney and Pixar's "Brave".
The 30-second promo kicked off with a quick recap of the show featuring characters like Queen Elsa, Peter Pan and the Wicked Witch who appeared in some of the episodes from the four seasons. Then it revealed Merida, the "bravest of warriors", who is said to be joining King Arthur's knights and presumed to be helping the heroes in continuing the fight with evil. A quick glimpse of the Dark Swan was also shown.
According to Entertainment Weekly, co-executive producer/co-creator Adam Horowitz said that the fans get to meet Merida after the events of the movie. "We're going to give you a little taste of where she's been since then, what's happened to her since the end of that movie, and then we're going to see that that somehow crosses with our people and with our 'Once Upon a Time' mythology," he revealed. more >>
In the last episode of "Big Brother," viewers witnessed the Head of Household (HoH) competition commence. This competition involves holding onto a rope while being on a small platform, and spinning in the air in circles and simultaneously getting slapped by two giant hands. Tough as it sounds, it is an exciting event until this episode.
Many were disappointed by the way things turned out. According to a live update on BuddyTV, it seems that the competition was over within 5 minutes. The first people that were counted out were Julia who fell off during the commercial break, followed by Steve and Meg. A minute later, it was followed by James, the next minutes with Liz, Becky, Jacky, and Shelli. Hope was renewed when Johnny Mac got in the game; however, he did not last long as he immediately fell off again. Three minutes later and Vanessa was named new HoH.
Viewers were expecting that Johnny will win this week and so it was a disappointment that luck was not on his side. Although it was assumed that less athletic HG will not last long like Steve and Shelli, including Becky who had a slight injury to her toe while walking into the competition, no one expected it to end so quickly. Cartermatt goes far as to say that it was the "worst endurance competition." more >>

The latest episode of "Braxton Family Values" season 5 definitely had the spotlight on Trina. Viewers saw how Trina was criticized by her sisters for her cooking skills in a never-before-seen clip, which of course Trina did not appreciate. Fans also witnessed Jacent's meeting with Papa Braxton that did not go as smoothly as planned.
On the last episode, Trina receives some cold harsh truth. According to Enstarz, the five famous Braxton sisters, Trina, Tamar, Towanda, Toni, and Traci get together to have a friendly cooking competition. Trina is partnered with their mother because, as Tamar tells her, "you need help the most." Trina doesn't take this lightly, as she doesn't appreciate the condescending tone of her sisters who are self-proclaimed "scholars" or kitchen experts. Trina retorts by saying, "I can cook! You's a lie. I don't receive that. I don't accept it. Y'all are gonna talk about me behind my back. You're not gonna talk about it to my face like this." Tamar then speaks up a bit more, saying, "You can't cook boo." Trina retaliates by saying, "My children are well nourished," implying that she's done okay, so far.
One of last episode's highlights is when Jacent meets Papa Braxton at a restaurant, as Jacent seeks his blessing for Trina's hand. He goes, "This is the thing here. I'm very respectable, and I wanted to come to you, as a man... I want your blessing." Papa Braxton is less than pleased with this proposal as he is worried about Trina being vulnerable now, and that Jacent might be taking advantage of her. The worry on Trina is also evident on Tamar as she feels what Jacent's plans are; however, Evelyn assures that Trina is just starting to cope every day, especially after her divorce was just recently finalized. more >>
"Downton Abbey" has done what not a lot of British shows have not succeeded on, and that's to cross over to the U.S. television and win over audiences. With the news that the next season will be the final one, many are heartbroken about it.
However, the tears were not reserved for audiences alone but to the actors who have been part of the series, as well. In a recent Vanity Fair issue, the last moments on set were described to be tearful, including four grown men sobbing. Jim Carter, who plays Carson on the show, shares, "I thought I would say good-bye to the crew who work so hard. Seeing their faces sobbing, it just did me in. We were puddles."
Executive producer Garent Neame during the Edinburgh TV Festival said that it wasn't only Carter who had been in that state. He revealed that the cutting room had "four middle-aged men trying not to cry in front of each other." Yet Neame didn't divulge details on what could have caused those tears to fall. more >>
