Gotham: Rogues Gallery | S1-E11

Gotham has officially fallen into soap opera territory. If you are a reader of this blog, you might have picked up on the fact that I do not generally like this type of show. I had high hopes that Gotham would ...

Gotham: Lovecraft | S1-E10

Well it looks like Gotham (at least for this episode) has completely given up on being a police procedural episodic show, and gone into Batman backstory soap opera territory. Not that there is anything wrong wi...

Gotham: Harvey Dent | S1 – E9

Gotham: The Balloonman – S1-E3

This was my favorite episode so far this season. Sure, we had a segment for every sidestory that is being brought in, but for the most part, this episode felt like it was about the Balloonman case. Previous ...
