Gotham (S04E19) “A Dark Knight: To Our Deaths and Beyond”

Anyone else suddenly in love with the idea of Lee (Morena Baccarin) and Riddler (Cory Michael Smith) together after last night’s episode? Because I definitely went into the night Team Nygmobblepot and came out on the other side. Last we had a split focus – Riddler & Lee, on one hand, Barbara (Erin Richards) & The…

Gotham (S04E18) “That’s Entertainment”

Last night’s Gotham was stunning, I can’t say enough for the writers that they’re able to cram so much into a single episode without leaving the viewer overwhelmed and confused. Episode 18 was a game changer, and I’m just hoping Gotham gets renewed so we can continue seeing how it played out. Bruce (David Mazouz)…

Gotham – Character Catch Up

Gotham is always bananas, but these days it’s a full-on circus. The amount of bad guys in this town, in each episode, has become truly mind-blowing. And with Jerome back on the town – nothing is out of the realm of possibility. As we’re heading into episode 18, here’s a little briefer on where our…

Gotham (S4E12) “Pieces Of A Broken Mirror”

Review: This week was more emotionally in-depth in Gotham than people might expect from a comic book show, let alone this show. Harvey Bullock was given an especially bright spotlight despite him not appearing that much this hour which is a testament to Donal Logue. I’ll go ahead and say, as Ed said, this episode…

Gotham: (S04E11) “Queen Takes Knight”

Review: The bloody first half of Gotham’s fourth season has ended… bloody. The comics often dive into violence, but this show has such a wonton campiness to its violence that it is actually quite easy to get swept up in it. It has been a spectacular and Grant Morrison-y ride so far with Professor Pyg…

Gotham: (S04E10) “Things That Go Boom”

Review: The piano playing in the background of this episode was quite fitting. The studio knows what it is doing to raise the episode’s tension. #MusicAppreciation because that’s an underrated aspect of most shows. In the park known as the Narrows, Leslie faced a new threat… The family of Nygma, Leslie and Grundy is formidable…

Gotham (S03E14) “Mad City: The Gentle Art of Making Enemies”

Is this another mid-season finale? Or should we call this episode of Gotham the winter finale? Well call it whatever, the sad news for stans is that Gotham won’t be returning until April 24th after only airing 3 episodes this new mid-season. Lucifer has also suffered the same fate as it too has to make way for…

Gotham: (S03E13) “Smile Like You Mean It”

Quote of the night: People have made sacrifices for you, Dwight. I left a REALLY GOOD job at the post office! SPOILERS GALORE! Between this season and last, Bruce Wayne has evolved. The boy is no longer a boy. Of course, it’s been three years since the series first aired. But perhaps because he started…

Gotham: (S03E12) “Ghosts”

Review: Crossroads is where we find all of our beloved characters in “Gotham’s” pseudo winter première. The territory explored in this episode surprisingly fitted the denizens of Gotham more than any past plot. Penguin is the one who benefits the most, with Edward Nygma psychologically torturing him. The mother of future Catwoman, Selina Kyle, throws…

Gotham: (S03E02) “Burn The Witch”

Review: The characters of “Gotham” have had the show, as well as the city, ingrained into their DNA that they feel independent of anything. They’re established separate from the comics. They fought battles together. Built new lives together. In its third season, this show and its characters are no longer an adaptation but a universe…

Gotham (S0301) “Better to Reign in Hell…”

Review: The flourish “Gotham” brings to its characters (heroes and villains) and stories is what distinguishes itself from the other superhero shows saturating televisions, like “Agents of SHIELD”. The series works best when it takes all the aspects of earlier adaptations of the Batman mythos, or any forgotten relic of DC Comics, that people tend…

Gotham (S02E22) “Transference”

Review: Gotham’s season finale capped off a year that made great improvements on its predecessor by embracing the more gonzo and outlandish aspects that the other superhero shows shy from. The complex histories, and futures in fact, shared by these characters enriches this hour of television which could be summarized as simply a villain with a…
