Fox's Batman-without-Batman tale plows onward, though its villains prove much more interesting than the heroes. (Warning: Spoilers ahead.)

"If people take the law into their own hands, then there is no law."

The show's wit and pop-culture savviness show promise, but it runs the risk of getting old fast (just like its title).

If there was ever a show orchestrated for people in their mid-twenties, Selfie is it. And I mean orchestrated. "Arranged or combined so as to achieve a desired or maximum effect" (thank you, Merriam-Webster).

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

If sitcoms and Prohibition-era dramas aren't your thing, you'd do well to tune into these superhero and comic book-themed shows hitting the airwaves this fall.

Whether you're a Marvel aficionado or a DC diehard, this fall's TV season has at least one show for you. But taking a quick look at the lineup — which includes three brand new shows centering around the background legends of The Flash, Batman and John Constantine (yes, that Constantine) — it's quite possible you'll have several programs competing for your favorite. Don't believe it?

The networks might have the sitcoms, but HBO and Showtime have the sex and violence -- for a premium price, of course.

With the first official day of fall just over a week away, the leaves are beginning to change, the air is getting crisp and TV networks are pushing out a new season of content. 

Network television fans will have plenty to look forward to with the return of old favorites, and cable viewers will get their fix of corpse-driven melodrama when AMC’s The Walking Dead returns in October.
