TV REVIEW: Gotham Season 2, Episode 20 – Unleashed

By Megan Wilde

This week, Gotham gets back to form with an episode that has lots going on and lots of action — and also more than the usual amount of meta, which I for one appreciate. “Unleashed” finds Azrael, well, unleashed, Bruce

TV REVIEW: Gotham Season 2, Episode 16 – Prisoners

TV REVIEW: Gotham Season 2, Episode 16 - Prisoners

By Megan Wilde

This week, there are a few deaths — a couple real, one faked. “Prisoners” has a lot going on, furthering two main story lines: Jim Gordon in prison, and Oswald (as he prefers to be called now) and his newfound

TV REVIEW: Gotham Season 2, Episode 15 – Mad Grey Dawn

TV REVIEW: Gotham Season 2, Episode 15 - Mad Grey Dawn

By Megan Wilde

A lot happens in “Mad Grey Dawn”; this is a good episode. The Riddler gets pretty extreme pretty quickly, Penguin gains a father and a new family, Bruce gets beaten up and loses his fear, and Jim gets framed. There

TV REVIEW: Gotham Season 2, Episode 14 – This Ball of Mud and Meanness

TV REVIEW: Gotham Season 2, Episode 14 - This Ball of Mud and Meanness

By Megan Wilde

“This Ball of Mud and Meanness” feels like a season closer, at least at the end. It isn’t, but it has that “ramping up the excitement” feel. Some stories are tied up; others are set up; and the ending seems

TV REVIEW: Gotham Season 2, Episode 13 - A Dead Man Feels No Cold

By Megan Wilde

After last week’s introduction of two new villains, Mr. Freeze and Dr. Strange, “A Dead Man Feels No Cold” gives us a closer look at them. It’s a bit of an uneven episode, bringing some excitement with lots of looks

TV REVIEW: Gotham Season 2, Episode 12 – Mr. Freeze

TV REVIEW: Gotham Season 2, Episode 12 - Mr. Freeze

By Megan Wilde

The first episode back from the break amps up the villains with the introduction of two eagerly anticipated characters: Mr. Freeze and Dr. Hugo Strange. And thankfully, they are not just a tease — Fries features heavily in the episode,

TV REVIEW: Gotham 2.9 – “A Bitter Pill to Swallow”

TV REVIEW: Gotham 2.9 "A Bitter Pill to Swallow"

By Jason Pickup

I’m willing to forgive “A Bitter Pill to Swallow” for not advancing the plot this week because, while we barely moved much from last week, what we got from Gotham was a great hour of character development. There are certain shows,

TV REVIEW: Gotham 2.3 – Last Laugh

TV REVIEW: Gotham 2.3 - Last Laugh

By Jason Pickup

So, we are now three episodes into season two of Gotham and it’s now fair to say, this year is a whole new ball game. “Last Laugh” brings us another week of a cohesive, tight plot line that manages to

TV REVIEW: Gotham 2.2 – Knock Knock

TV REVIEW: Gotham 2.2 - Knock Knock

By Jason Pickup

When Gotham returned last week, the first episode was a much better effort than the bulk of season one due to one simple fact: The KISS principle. No, not cameos from a mediocre, aging rock band; rather by Keeping It Simple,

TV REVIEW: Gotham 1.18 “Everyone Has A Cobblepot”

TV REVIEW: Gotham 1.18 "Everyone Has A Cobblepot"

By Jason Pickup

“In a way, all of us has an Cobblepot to face. For some, shyness might be their Cobblepot. For others, a lack of education might be their Cobblepot. For us, Cobblepot is a tiny, dangerous man who wants to corrupt us. But as

TV REVIEW: Gotham 1.17 "Red Hood"

By Jason Pickup

Well then, this certainly was an interesting episode of Gotham. Intrigue, self mutilation and warm woolen hoods. Sing along. These are a few of my favorite things. Let’s get down to the scene pretty much everyone who saw it is

TV REVIEW: Gotham 1.16 "The Blind Fortune Teller"

By Jason Pickup

OK, let’s just jump into it. I know why you’re all here, it’s been eating you up since last Monday. What did Jason think of the Joker tease? I get it, we’re doing a show about everyone in Gotham’s rise

TV REVIEW: Gotham 1.10 "Lovecraft"

By Jason Pickup

  Well folks, here was are – we finally made it to half-time for the inaugural season of Gotham. Time to settle into the wasteland of reruns until sometime in January. I’m not sure if they were aiming to go to

TV REVIEW: Gotham 1.09 “Harvey Dent”

Gotham 1.09 "Harvey Dent"

By Jason Pickup

After eight episodes I’d like to think we have a fairly good handle on what works for Gotham and what doesn’t work. The show seems to excel when they deal with a small subsection of their deep pool of characters,
