Gotham – Season 3 Episode 4

“Mad City: New Day Rising” I feel somewhat vindicated by this week’s Gotham, specifically by Selina’s quick deduction that Clone-Bruce was not who he claimed to be. Better still, the mistaken identity trope plot offered by Clone-Bruce’s appearance was resolved quickly and didn’t lead to too many ‘but why is Bruce doing that?’ faux-shock moments….

Gotham – Season 3 Episode 3

“Mad City: Look Into My Eyes” I feel that Gotham has now succumbed to the influence of those people who believe that “because the plot needs it, darling” is a good reason make a character do something – worse, something that seems quite out of character based on what we’ve seen so far. I can…

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…

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 2 Episode 21

“Wrath of the Villains – A Legion of Horribles” The penultimate episode of season 2 of Gotham features returning characters, a new villain and a shadowy threat manipulating events from behind the scenes. Aaron is unavailable this week so the duty of reviewing Gotham falls to me. I haven’t done this since season 1 so…

Gotham – Season 2 Episode 20

“Wrath of the Villains: Unleashed” I feel that this week’s Gotham shouldn’t have been called “Unleashed” so much as something like ‘followed the path set by storytelling metaphysics to a disappointing and unfunny demise’, which would have been a dreadful title, I admit, but it would have been a more fitting one nonetheless. This week…

Gotham – Season 2 Episode 19

“Wrath of the Villains: Azrael” This week, Azrael  takes the role Gotham usually gives to Jim Gordon: the central character tying all other characters and plots together. I don’t think I’d realised just exactly how many people Galavan had managed to upset until we went through the roster this episode.  These connections give me some…

Gotham – Season 2 Episode 18

“Wrath of the Villains: Pinewood” It’s about this time in the season that Gotham starts giving us answers and in “Pinewood” we get the man and motive behind Thomas Wayne’s death, Barbara Kean’s current state of mind and what’s been happening in Arkham during the last three-episode’s detour. Better still, I can also start ticking…

Gotham – Season 2 Episode 17

“Wrath of the Villains: Into the Woods” ‘Into the Woods’ is a standout episode of Gotham’s second series but I really didn’t think it would be as it started. My advice for anyone who hasn’t seen it yet is to keep the episode title in your head as you watch to keep you ready to…
