During 'A Night with Taraji,' the actress talks her rise to fame, her upcoming 'Saturday Night Live' gig, and offers many words of wisdom.

Fans of Taraji P. Henson have seen her on screen as an NYPD homicide detective, a loving caregiver, and most recently, the ex-wife of a hip-hop mogul, but in an intimate evening at the Schine Student Center's Goldstein Auditorium, Syracuse University students were able to see her as just Taraji.

Wearing minimal makeup and her hair pulled back for "A Night with Taraji," no topic was off limits to Henson as she shared her life story and secrets to her success with the audience.

Review: The show's mid-season finale brings up a few more questions than it answers.

In the Gotham mid-season finale, "LoveCraft," was one major question to be pondered: "How did they know?"

The episode opened with three assassins descending on Wayne Manor. Dressed all in black, balancing flawlessly on a pair of several-inch heels, the lead assassin kills a gardener and worms her way in through the front door, claiming to be an injured victim of a car accident. Seconds later, she and her cronies blow their cover and lunge after Bruce and Cat. Alfred, a deceptively talented fighter, fends them off while the kids flee.

Review: The network show introduces a new character to, as he says, "clean up" Gotham, and longtime Batman are in for a surprise.

In Gotham's penultimate episode, everything finally seems to be coming together. Whether you're rooting for the heroic Detective Jim Gordon, anxiously awaiting the rise of the young Bruce Wayne or (like me) reveling in the evil and chaos sewn by the show's colorful villains, episode nine, "Harvey Dent," probably had you feeling pretty jazzed.

As the first season nears its ending point and as the Peguin's master plan is finally revealed, the writers amp up the comic-bookishness and pray it pays off.

It's official. Gotham has finally embraced its neo-noir silliness, just as Penguin has finally embraced his avian nickname. It's a new day in Gotham.

Well, not really.

The last two episodes of Gotham have picked up their pace and tightened some loose ends - but the city of Gotham has not yet changed. It's still a terrible place full of terrible people, both downright evil and willfully hamstrung.

Review: More than halfway through season one, Gotham is still hitting the mark -- kind of. When it works, it works, and when it doesn't, it really doesn't. Here's why. (Warning: Spoilers ahead.)

So far on Gotham, we've had a murderous balloon vigilante, a hobbling Penguin vigilante and a drug peddling anti-Big Pharma vigilante. In episode six, our vigilante came from a much more unexpected place: the doctor's office.

Review: The season ramps up its crime narratives and finally fleshes out Bruce Wayne, the story's catalyst, as a fuller character.

A man sits on a dirty Gotham street corner, playing a guitar. Propped in his case is a cardboard sign that reads, "Why lie - I need money for drugs." A bewildered-looking but unflinching man approaches and drops in his case a green vial. The label reads, "breathe me."

The new Fox show delves into the city that spawned Batman but could use some tightening and polishing.

Gotham is a serious place. Such crime, such corruption, such stormy skies. Detective James Gordon, a war hero-turned-cop, may be the most serious part of this dark city.
