Introducing Batman villains to 'Gotham,' one cheesy line at a time

Fox’s new series Gotham has the difficult task of introducing a number of famous and lesser-known Batman villains before they officially don the costume and alter ego. The show’s pilot accomplishes this in its own special way: by hinting at appearances by the Penguin, Mr. Freeze, and the Riddler with some very, very obvious bits of dialogue. For example: “If I want riddles, I’ll read the funny pages.”

With so many possible criminals just waiting in the back alleys of Gotham, the show will have to clock in some overtime in order to showcase them all; if the show lasts for several seasons, the producers may have to resort to Crazy-Quilt and Film Freak. How exactly will the show handle hinting at these and other criminals? Subtle (read: not at all subtle) dialogue clues, of course.

Stephen Colbert is Frank Underwood's new target

As Stephen Colbert spends his final few months on The Colbert Report, the talk show host remains unsure of what he’ll do next—though the real Stephen Colbert’s plans are already set. Luckily for him, Kevin Spacey appeared as House of Cards‘ Frank Underwood on his show last night to offer some seemingly friendly advice.

Complete with his southern drawl and unintelligible metaphors about animals, Underwood promised to take Colbert under his wing if the talk-show host ever pursues a career in Washington. All Underwood asked was that Colbert meet him at the edge of a train platform—which should give any fan of House of Cards a moment of pause for Colbert’s safety. READ FULL STORY

'Breaking Bad' Spanish remake: Top moments from the new Walter, Jesse

METASTASIS

“Yo no estoy en peligro. El peligro soy yo” Breaking Bad, Episode 6, Season 4. (Translation: “I’m not in danger. I am the danger.”)

Say hola to Walter Blanco, better known to U.S. audiences as Walter White, the quiet, cancer-stricken chemistry teacher turned meth cook in cult drama Breaking Bad. In Metastasis, Walter looks the same – actor Diego Trujillo’s craggy face, goatee and wire-rimmed glasses make him an eerie doppelgänger for Bryan Cranston – but he speaks Spanish and lives in the Colombian capitol of Bogotá.

Starz's 'Power' react: A really long 50 Cent music video

Within seconds of the Power’s opening credits, the viewer knows exactly what the series is about. Like 50 Cent’s hit album, it’s largely about how to Get Rich or Die Tryin,’ with gratuitous shots of expensive watches, expansive penthouse apartments, and pricey red-bottomed Louboutin shoes.
