  • Gotham 1×18 Review: Everyone Has a Cobblepot

    This week’s episode of Gotham “Everyone Has a Cobblepot” was thoroughly enjoyable, largely because of Jim Gordon’s willingness to use darker means to take down bad people. It also had some wonderful scenes featuring Penguin. So, let’s get to it! I’ve been vocal about my growing disinterest in Gordon’s ‘crime-of-the-week’ storylines, and though I still […]

  • Gotham 1×17 Review: Red Hood

    While this week’s episode of Gotham was about the Red Hood Gang personally I found the other storylines more interesting. Fish Mooney surprised me and we got a bit more development regarding the Wayne murder case. I liked how the writers handled the red hood as a ‘cursed’ object. A lot of people wore the […]

  • Gotham 1×16 Review: The Blind Fortune Teller

    Did Gotham just tell The Joker’s origin story this week? Well, I’m not sure, but I have to say that I enjoyed the episode. Not because of the ‘could-be-The-Joker’ Jerome, but due to Fish Mooney’s slow rise to regaining power, and Baby Bruce taking charge of his family’s company. Setting the plot of “The Blind […]

  • Gotham 1×14 Review: The Fearsome Dr. Crane

    This week’s episode of Gotham focused on the origins of the villain Scarecrow and featured romance between some of the characters. It also had some funny moments which I liked and I have to say that I found “The Fearsome Dr. Crane” to be one of the better episodes this season. As the title of […]

  • Gotham 1×12 Review: What the Little Bird Told Him

    I think this week’s episode of Gotham was probably the first time I enjoyed the mafia storyline ever since the writers started dragging it out. Seeing Fish finally making her move against Falcone was exciting and I hope it leads to better things to come. There were no kids this week but I still found […]

  • Gotham 1×9 Review: Harvey Dent

    I have a question for the writers of Gotham: Why is it the character, whose name the episode is titled after, has the shortest screen time? They did the same thing with ‘Selina Kyle‘ and repeated it this week with ‘Harvey Dent’. The episode was still able to keep me interested because it gave me what […]

  • Gotham 1×7 Review: Penguin’s Umbrella

    This week’s episode of Gotham still hasn’t helped me make up my mind about the show. There’s a lot of repetitive stuff going on and the main plot isn’t moving at a pace I’d like. The only saving grace is Penguin, played amazingly by Robin Lord Taylor. The way the writers are handling his character […]

  • Gotham 1×5 Review: Viper

    This week’s episode of Gotham, though enjoyable, still left me unsure about the future of the series. With 75 years of material, there are a lot of things writers can play with. However, it all comes down to execution and I felt “Viper” let me down. Is it just me or is the show following […]

  • Gotham 1×3 Review: The Balloonman

    This week’s episode of Gotham, titled “The Balloonman”, showed the audience that there was someone before Batman who tried to get rid of the scum in the city. I didn’t enjoy the episode but that’s not to say it wasn’t without some very enjoyable moments. I enjoyed last week’s episode because it allowed the writers […]

  • Gotham 1×2 Review: Selina Kyle

    While the premiere of Gotham focused on introducing the Wayne murder and the major characters, this week’s episode laid the groundwork for the other plotlines that will be coming up this season. Though the episode was titled “Selina Kyle” it failed to tell much about one of my favorite characters. One of the best things […]
