Hi guys — I’m back. Don’t worry I wasn’t held in captivity by Edward Nygma for the past 4 months, just been super busy! I’ve missed reviewing 6 episodes but to recap them quickly I can just use the Gotham Season 2 back-half tagline: “Wrath of the Villains.” Mostly I can say that these last 6 episodes were a blessing because we had no ridiculous Theo Galavan (James Frain).
This episode really was “A Bitter Pill to Swallow” because it was filled with such unnecessary violence, murder, and grit. I’m guessing Gotham is going for the “gritty, dark” type of show, despite every other inclination that it is anything but that.
This week, Barbara is back and with a crazy vengeance, taking Jim on a wild and fun ride of terror and insanity. Also, Ed goes on a journey, of sorts, and Bruce is given a terrible offer. Lots of good and bad happened and, dare I say, I actually am loving Barbara now?
This week’s episode of Gotham finally brought the fire, pun intended. After last week’s lackluster episode, my expectations for Gotham were at an all-time low, which is why perhaps, this episode, “By Fire,” really worked for me. It was exciting, evenly-paced and featured some great developments!
The Gotham show creators weren’t just joking around when they said that Season 2 was going to hit the ground running! It’s only the second episode of the season and we already have the death of a major character. Plus, lots of villains, insanity, chaos, and cheerleaders getting blown up on a bus!
Gotham: Rise of the Villains is now back on your television, touting a new season-long theme. It still has lots of things to work out, but Season Two starts on a good note!
Gotham got off to a rocky start and still feels like it is trying to find its way, even now. I’m really counting on this season finale to cement the show in greatness (hopefully), so that we can all look forward to the show next year.
Tonight is the penultimate episode of Gotham’s first season! One episode left! Anything can and, hopefully, will happen! I’m predicting a major character death for the season finale. Last week, the Riddler was born, Bruce and Selina did some sleuthing, and Jim was stressing out about this pesky serial killer called the Ogre (Milo Ventimiglia). […]
After last week’s eye-smashing episode, Gotham showed that it could be a show of unpredictability and change. Hopefully it can keep up this momentum.
This week, Gotham really ups the ante with some shocking developments near the end of the episode.
