Robin Lord Taylor is invariably one of the nicest, most genuine people to interview in all of show business – he always seems thrilled that people want to talk to him about his job.
On Friday, he spoke with a group of bloggers/journalists about season two of Gotham (FOX, Mondays, 8/7C) and confirmed once again that he loves what he’s doing.
Taylor was happy to talk about the Penguin’s progress – rising from, essentially, the gutter to become (even if it’s self-proclaimed) the King of Gotham. He touched on the darker nature of the new season; the Penguin/Nygma relationship (yes, it’s coming!); Mrs. Cobblepot’s dawning awareness of her son’s business, and a great deal more.

In the movie, Minority Report, a trio of PreCogs predicted crimes and the would-be perpetrators were arrested before they could commit the crime, but that changed when it became very apparent that the future could be changed (and Cruise’s character prevented the very crime he supposed to have been committing). In the new FOX series (Mondays, 9/8C), one of the now adult PreCogs keeps trying to prevent murders but he’s only working with a third of the picture, which leads to his teaming up with Detective Lara Vega.
Recently, Wilmer Valderrama took an opportunity to speak with a group of bloggers/journalists about his role as Lt. Will Blake on Minority Report – the lieutenant of the precinct where Meagan Good’s Larta Vega is assigned. He talked about Blake’s history with Vega; his love of the tech (he really wants a jet pack!), and teased the deeper goings on that lie ahead for viewers.
Monica Ten-Kate is just another typical girl going to college. She has friends, goes on dates, pulls all-nighters and hangs out with her roommates. The only thing that’s different about Monica is that she talks to dead people – and they respond! Not only that, but Monica is a real person and ABC Family’s new series, Monica the Medium (Tuesdays, 8/7C) is an hour-long, unscripted show that follows her through both sides of her life: the mundane and the supernatural.
Recently, Monica spoke with a group of bloggers/journalists about her life and her gift. It made for an interesting experience.
In FX’s rock&roll dramedy, Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll (Thursday, 10/9C), Ava (Elaine Hendrix) has been with Johnny Rock (Denis Leary) for decades – even though his insecurities and constantly fried state keep him from ever becoming successful. For one brief moment in the early nineties, his band The Heathens was the hottest ticket in New York – but he (and they) disintegrated on stage the night their one and only album dropped. Through all of the all-too-brief ups and all-too-many downs, she has been there for/with him.
Shortly after last week’s episode of The Strain (Sundays, 10/9C), Miguel Gomez – who plays Gus Elizalde, who inadvertently allowed the vampire apocalypse to begin – spoke with a group of journalists/bloggers about redemption; how Gus saw Vaun, and a lot more.
Samantha Mathis’ Staten Island Councilwoman Justine Faraldo made a very impressive debut on FX’s hit series The Strain (Sundays, 10/9C) in the second season’s second episode – calling out the mayor of New York City; declaring Staten Island a infection-free zone and putting dead vampires on horrific display. This is a woman who is not to be trifled with!
Earlier this week, Mathis took some time from her shooting schedule to speak with a group of bloggers/journalist about Faraldo and the possibilities that lie ahead for her.
Things are heating up in Salem (WGN America, Sundays, 10/9C) as second the season comes to a close – and especially so for Seth Gabel’s Cotton Mather and Tamzin Merchant’s Ann Hale.
Gabel and Merchant spoke to a group of journalists/bloggers about the season finale – teasing the emotionally fraught situation between Ann and Cotton, setting the stage for a third season and singing the praises of the actor who plays a certain creepiest-kid-in-the-world.
William Hurt is one of the most recognizable actors on the planet – and one of the best known mainstream stars to work a great deal in genre film. In AMC’s Humans (Sundays, 9/8C), he plays Dr. George Millican – one of the co-creators of the android/root servants called Synths.
AMC’s Humans (Sundays, 9/8C) is a new series that explores an alternate present in which the only significance difference is the presence of android/robot servants called Synths. The series explores ideas like whether technology brings us closer together or pushes us apart, and what is sentience and is machine sentience possible – couched in terms of a story that mixes genres from sci-fi to family drama to thriller.
Based on a Swedish series called Real Humans, Humans has been created for its English-speaking audience by Jonathan Brackley and Sam Vincent. During the week, they took some time to speak with a group of journalists/bloggers about the show on a conference call/Q&A session.
In AMC’s Humans (Sundays, 9/8C), Katherine Parkinson and Tom Goodman-Hill play Laura and Joe Hawkins, the working parents of three children. When Laura is away for work, Jo purchases a Synth to help deal with the overwhelming job of looking after the kids while also having a regular job to do – despite this not being approved of by Laura.
