With the news that Fox is fast-tracking "Gotham," a drama based on the Batman-less adventures of a younger Jim Gordon, we thought we'd look at some reasons why Gotham's top cop will be fascinating to watch--even without the Caped Crusader around.

'Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' was a modest hit last night, by TV standards... But what if it was a movie? We did the math, and found out exactly how much money it would have made: Read More...

Hannibal - Season 1

Image credit: CBR

"I think one of the most fun things you can say about [Hannibal] as a series killer, if you can say 'fun,' is that he has such a specific aesthetic," Bryan Fuller tells me when I ask about what makes Hannibal Lecter different from the "Dexters" of the TV landscape. Fuller adds that Lecter--played in NBC's "Hannibal" by Danish actor Mads Mikkelsen--is a dandy with a sense of joie de vivre.

The character, first made famous in Thomas Harris' novels before coming to the small screen under actor Brian Cox in "Manhunter" and later "Silence of the Lambs" with Anthony Hopkins, is hard to pin down: a killer of the "free range rude" as he notably says, one who has grabbed our attention for nearly 30 years now in one form or another. Showrunner and writer Bryan Fuller ("Pushing Daisies," "Wonderfalls," "Dead Like Me") has taken a shot at reinventing the character for TV with "Hannibal."

I spoke with Fuller recently about bringing America's favorite serial killer to NBC in the recently-concluded first season of "Hannibal," which is being released to home video this week. We chatted about the appeal of the character, Mikkelsen's approach to the role, the allure or evil, and just what creator Thomas Harris thinks of the latest incarnation of his most popular character.

Fangasm - Season 1

Now is the time of the geek on Syfy. After wrapping up its exploration of the cosplay community last week with the first season finale of “Heroes Of Cosplay,” the network introduces us tonight at 10 p.m. to “Fangasm.” A fan culture reality series that mixes “The Real World,” “The Apprentice” and “The Big Bang Theory,” “Fangasm” is a solid product and, most of the time, it is a pretty entertaining one.

Oh. My. Godstiel. As you may have noticed, dear readers, we here at MTV Geek are very excited about the upcoming Season 9 (or, as the internet has christened it, Season Divine) of the CW's "Supernatural". Here's another very, very good reason to be excited - new key art for the 9th season has been revealed. It shows the brothers, one angel (this time with his omnipresent trench coat), one king of Hell, one church and... nope, those aren't fireworks. Isn't that the church from 8.23? And isn't that color palette reminiscent of Purgatory with its bleak grays and murky skies? This poster sets the mood for the upcoming season premiere, which will be airing on Tuesday, October 8th at 9/8c on the CW and all signs so far point towards a season premiere we won't forget.

The show's taken us places so far - it's taken us to heaven, to hell, to Purgatory - the one that's Hell adjacent, not the one in Miami - and Season 9 promises to take us to new highs (lows?) of darkness and despair. The season premiere will pick up immediately following Season 8's finale. Dean and Sam must deal with the fallout of not closing the gates of Hell. Sam may or may not be dying again, must be his turn this season. Castiel is powerless again, his angel powers stolen by Metatron during the ritual which ejected the angels from heaven and shut the pearly gates with a dull, final thump. We've got a hot new angel flying around, too. And, in the meantime, the Winchesters have shoved the King of Hell into the Impala's trunk and called it a day.

So what can the composition of this poster mean? Well, one, it means there will be a lot of fog in the evening. Two, it means... we'll let you guys decide. Take a look at the full poster below and let us know what you think it's hinting at!

This September, we say goodbye to "Dexter" and "Breaking Bad" but today is not a day meant for goodbyes. It's September 24th, and that means we'll all be watching Marvel's new series "Agents of SHIELD" to see if it lives up to the hype. Dear readers, we don't know what it's like where you live, but here in New York it is impossible to go anywhere without having the SHIELD logo shoved in your face on public transit and billboards. It's all over the internet. We've only blogged about it eight billion times on our tumblrs this week. Now is the time... for the Daily Geek, SHIELD edition.

CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR FACES

This just in: time and space have been warped by supernatural cosmic shenanigans that are beyond our mortal understanding, and somehow Sam Winchester's Reddit account has joined this universe's Reddit. Or, it's just a really good novelty account, but you know, that's just highly improbable. Read more about this after the cut!

Felicia Day Emmys

Last night was the 65th Emmy Awards. While there was plenty of nerd royalty in attendance at the Emmys, the show lacked any real defining geek moments (Although the James Cromwell fun fact--that he was the only person to say the phrase 'star trek' on the show--was totally awesome). We've come up with five ways the show could have been geekier and therefore way better: Read More...

I'll admit, not much happened this weekend. Was everyone too busy with football, the Emmys and GTA V to do newsworthy things? Probably. In any case, here are some important things that happened last weekend. You probably missed them. Welcome to the Daily Geek.
