Gotham – Season 3 Episode 8

“Mad City: Blood Rush” Gotham finally gives Michael Chiklis something to do in season 3… by turning Barnes into Judge Dredd, replete with “I am the law” quote. Now, I’m assuming the actual idea is to make him into a villain called The Judge, possibly based on judge characters from the comics? My knowledge of…

Gotham – Season 3 Episode 7

“Mad City: Red Queen” Gotham’s season 3 plan for Jim comes to a head in ‘Red Queen’, forcing him to consider both his past and future actions. This is something I’ve been waiting to see for a while now. I’d thought it would come mostly through Barnes originally, then maybe through a villain and some…

Gotham – Season 3 Episode 5

“Mad City: Anything for You” Love is in the air in Gotham this week. Bruce declares his feelings for Selina. Jim and Valerie are threatening to be more than just a hook up. Lee’s lost between two lovers. Even Tabitha’s showing her fondness for Butch again perhaps? It could easily have been a Valentine’s Day episode, twisted…

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…
