Gotham – Season 3 Episodes 21 & 22

Heroes Rise finale: “Destiny Calling” and “HeavyDirtySoul” Gotham ends season 3 with many characters questioning their identity: those having been infected with the virus supposedly seeing their real selves; those caught up in the chaos seeing what they’re made of in the face of it. Some of these questions definitely had a greater effect on…

Gotham – Season 3 Episode 20

“Heroes Rise: Pretty Hate Machine” I’m hoping that this week’s Gotham is the setup for the double-episode season finale plot in the same way that ‘Light the Wick’ felt like the painful setup for ‘All Will Be Judged’. Not that I disliked this week’s fare as much as ‘Light the Wick’ but a large majority…

Gotham – Season 3 Episode 2

“Mad City: Burn the Witch” Back into Gotham. Back in black. The first is me, the second is Bruce, reprising his Milk Tray Man costume as he tackles the Court of Owls. Fish is properly back too, as a main character, though in a role I didn’t expect Jada Pinkett Smith to accept; but then,…

Gotham – Season 3 Episode 1

“Mad City: Better to Reign in Hell…” Gotham begins a third season that picks up on some of the threads teased by the end of last season with an army of mutant monsters roaming the street and Gordon taking it upon himself to capture them…for a modest fee. I’m covering for Aaron this week but…

Bad Moms

Frustrated mothers go wild in Jon Lucas and Scott Moore’s comedy Bad Moms where life just gets too much for three mothers feeling smothered by their responsibilities. The film follows Amy (Mila Kunis), a mother of two in her thirties who never really got to experience being young and carefree. It is established early on…

Gotham – Season 2 Episode 22

“Wrath of the Villains: Transference” So, I’m back to see Gotham season two’s finale. Strange as it feels to write it given how much more I like Gotham than Craig does, I felt he was rather generous with his rating for the penultimate episode. Watching ‘A Legion of Horribles‘  I felt a little dread creep…

Gotham Season 1

Gotham season 2 is almost upon us so it’s a good time to revisit season 1 and reflect on it as a whole before the second season starts doing its thing. This is a very tough show to talk about because there was so much going on while there was so little going on so…

Gotham – Season 1 Episode 22

“All Happy Families Are Alike” It’s finally done, Gotham season 1 comes to an end after several torturous months of missed opportunities. The gang war comes to a serious head as Fish Mooney returns to take advantage of the situation. It’s been known for a while that Jada Pinkett Smith would not be returning for…

Gotham – Season 1 Episode 21

“The Anvil or the Hammer” Only one more Gotham episode after this one for season 1 and the Ogre/Barbara plot is brought to a definitive close. It appears that I was a little too kind on Gotham last week when I expressed how impressed I was by how the show was handling the Ogre and…

Gotham – Season 1 Episode 20

“Under the Knife” A mere 2 episodes left of the first season of Gotham after this one and I’m still no closer to figuring out what the point of this season has been. This show has tossed a lot of things into the mix but never really capitalised on any of them. Some promise existed…
