‘Gotham’ 5×10 Review: ‘I Am Bane’

I’ll be honest; Bane has never really interested me as a Batman villain. “I Am Bane” did not change that. The title character was far less interesting than the woman holding his leash, and her vendetta against Bruce Wayne and…

‘Gotham’ 5×09 Review: ‘The Trial Of Jim Gordon’

“The Trial Of Jim Gordon” marks Erin Richards’ debut as a director, with a script written by Ben McKenzie. They created pure gold. The episode is loaded with so many of the things I love about Gotham: Favorite characters and heartfelt…

‘Gotham’ 5×07 Review: ‘Ace Chemicals’

“Ace Chemicals” is loaded with chemistry. There’s the sizzling kind between fan-favorite couples, the soothing kind between friends who have become family, plus the explosive kind between deadly enemies. And then there was the big explosion that leveled Wayne Manor!…

‘Gotham’ 5×04 Review: ‘Ruin’

Well, that was quick! “Ruin” brought us the long-awaited return of Jeremiah, but he didn’t get to stick around long. Selina succeeds in her quest for revenge. But you know the drill. This is Gotham. Better check for a pulse!…

‘Gotham’ 5×03 Review: ‘Penguin, Our Hero’

This episode of Gotham gives us Penguin as a hero, Selina transforming into a villain, and a much lighter Jim Gordon than we’ve seen – ever. We also get some lovely BatCat moments and a nifty tribute to the Frank…

‘Gotham’ 5×02 Review: ‘Trespassers’

“Trespassers” gives us more of the weirdness we love in Gotham, while advancing the stories of two of Batman’s future adversaries. We also get more of Jim Gordon’s heroism, Harvey Bullock’s faithful support and Barbara Kean’s quest for revenge against…

‘Gotham’ 5×01 Review: ‘Year Zero’

“Year Zero” is one hell of a start to Gotham’s final season. It’s a perfect mix of everything we love about the show. We get some mysteries (the main one in the opening flash-forward sequence), plus the emotional ties between…

‘Gotham’ Season 4 Review: The Making Of A Dark Knight

I’ve said before that Gotham is not and never will be Mayberry. It’s no shining city on a hill. It’s an urban hellscape, a waking nightmare, a long tall glass of absinthe with an LSD chaser. But it’s still the…

‘Gotham’ 4×22 Review: ‘No Man’s Land’

Just about four years ago, I sat in Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con with thousands of other fans to watch the world premiere of Gotham. At the time it was pitched as the gritty origin story of both Bruce…

‘Gotham’ 4×21 Review – ‘One Bad Day’

“One Bad Day.” Three words that are the foundation of the Joker’s philosophy, that just one bad day can drive a person insane. In the comics universe, the idea is also the foundation of “The Killing Joke,” one of the…

‘Gotham’ 4×16 Review: ‘One Of My Three Soups’

Three very cool things in this episode of Gotham, and none of them are the title soups (although one of those was cool in the temperature sense): Jerome is on the loose, along with a lot of Gotham’s Most Dangerous.…

‘Gotham’ 4×07 Review: ‘A Day In The Narrows’

“Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold.” W.B. Yeats was talking about Europe after World War One when he penned that line in “The Second Coming,” but it certainly applies to the city of Gotham. …Wait, what? You didn’t come…
