When Gotham returns tomorrow night (FOX, 9/8C), James Gordon will face a new kind of threat – a serial killer called the Ogre – who’s never been properly investigated because he’s gone after the loved ones of any cop who’s tried.
Last week, Milo Ventimiglia took some time to chat with a group of bloggers/journalists about his guest-starring role on this week’s episode of Gotham (FOX, Mondays, 9/8C), Beasts of Prey.
“Gotham” is a prequel to the Batman series created by Bruno Heller. Thomas and Martha Wayne are murdered and new police recruit James Gordon (Ben McKenzie) is paired with veteran detective Harvey Bullock(Donal Logue) to solve this case. During his investigation, Gordon meets the Wayne’s only child Bruce (David Mazouz). Gordon gets entangled with Gotham’s villains and Mafia families, including mobstress Fish Mooney, Oswald Cobblepot, Don Carmine Falcone, and Salvatore Maroni. Eventually the young Bruce will grow up to be Batman. Robin Lord Taylor, who plays Oswald Cobblepot aka the future Penguin, took time to chat with Eclipse Magazine on his role and the series.

Young war vet Matt Skokie is killed following a violent home invasion in Modesto, CA. Four suspects are brought to custody at the start of the series. As Russ Skokie (Timothy Hutton) and Barb Hanlon (Felicity Huffman) are forced to come together to bury their son, they discover their son may be far from innocent. As the series continues, the suspects are released but troubles continue to plague them and the Skokies, even as Matt’s wife Gwen, also a victim of the invasion, awakens from her coma.

Weird Loners (Tuesdays, 9:30/8:30C) premieres tonight. It’s a series about four individuals who find themselves unable to form satisfying long-term relationships for various and sundry reasons (usually having to do with them being, yes, a tad bit weird and maybe a bit on the offputting side).
When Bones returns tomorrow night (FOX, Thursdays, 8/7C), it brings the reappearance of Cyndi Lauper’s psychic Avalon Harmonia – though she’s not visiting the Jeffersonian to help with the (as usual) messy case of the week. Nor is she there with warnings of tough times ahead for Booth (David Boreanaz).
Last week, Emily Deschanel and series showrunner Stephen Nathan did touch on those topics – as well as the continuing excellence of the technicians who create all those icky bodies and more – during a conference all Q&A with a number of bloggers/journalists.

When Kevin Bacon spoke with a group of journalists/bloggers last week, one of the questions was about his new flame, Gwen (played by the lovely Zuleikha Robinson). Among the many things Bacon had to say about the new season, one of the most prominent was that Gwen is (finally) the right woman for him.
He also spoke about being drawn to darker material where the stakes for the characters he plays are higher, and whether various of the characters he’s dealt with are more dangerous. As usual, he was sharp, charming and fun to chat with.
Archer’s Lana Kane has had to work through some horrendous missions while pregnant and now, in season six of Archer (Thursdays, FOX, 10/9C), she’s a working mom in a workplace where no one is anywhere near what you might describe as a good babysitter.
