Let’s Talk About Tonight’s Geeky TV: Angry Alfred Tears Apart ‘Gotham’

It was only a matter of time before Sean Pertwee went all Dog Soldiers on somebody’s ass in Gotham. Tonight, if this trailer is to be believed, will be the night, and we’ll be liveblogging it. Plus, a look at tonight’s geeky TV.

All times are Eastern.


Gotham, Fox: Harvey Dent’s master plan to smoke out a corrupt executive backfires horribly. Gee, couldn’t see that one coming. It looks like this entire episode is basically Alfred, with Gordon and Bullock as backup, reenacting Taken, and we can’t wait to see it. Sadly, this is the “mid-season finale,” but new episodes are coming. In the meantime, we made a GIF wall of the promo’s highlights

The Originals, The CW: Esther continues to be a terrible person, because, among other things, who names their kid Esther?

Batman Begins, HBOe: The lesser of the trilogy, but still fun to watch.


Sleepy Hollow, Fox: Abbie and Ichabod are looking for a fabled sword that will kill Moloch while simultaneously keeping John Noble around, because let’s face it, that is a voice too awesome to surrender. Noble should do GPS directions.

Max Payne, FXM: “You know what Sin City needed? Color! And more slo-mo! Lots of slo-mo!”

As always, we’ll be liveblogging Gotham. We’ll start at 8pm. Join us, won’t you?
