Gotham Review: Embrace the Absurd or Run for the Hills in ‘The Blade’s Path’

by Jeff Fountainon October 21, 2017
I’ve been covering Gotham since it first aired and I have to say, I’ve never seen an episode quite like this. Completely absurd, insane, ridiculous, with silly plot arcs and cartoon-like violence, this was Gotham written and executed by crazy people. However, because this is Gotham, where people never seem to die and outlandish behavior […]

Gotham Review: “The Demon’s Head” is Dark, Disturbing and Gotham at its Best

by Jeff Fountainon October 13, 2017
There is no denying that Gotham can get lost in its own comic universe, trying too hard to please too many. However this week, “The Demon’s Head” showed just how powerful Gotham can be, how dark and twisted a world/city it really is and so that even when there are minor missteps there is something […]


Gotham Review: Heroes and Villains Rise and Fall in the Wonderful Season Three Finale

by Jeff Fountainon June 6, 2017
*SPOILERS AHEAD* With a finale that consisted of two episodes, “Destiny Calling” and “Heavydirtysoul”, Gotham showed once again how it has always been better dealing with villains than heroes, which might explain why the heroes becoming villains worked out so well. The dark side has always been Gotham’s strength and thankfully they went to that […]

Arrow’s Canaries Sing

by Laura Cerroneon February 11, 2015
Episode 13 – Canaries Teased as a Canary-centric episode, it turned out to focus elsewhere, but this wasn’t a bad thing. While Arrow, Roy, Laurel, Felicity, and Diggle worked to take down recently released Werner Zytle, there were big battles being tackled on a different front. The storyline between the Canaries resulted in an ending […]


Review of Arrow – Uprising

by Laura Cerroneon February 4, 2015
Episode 12 – Uprising The Emerald Archer Rises… and has returned to Starling City. And, at the last ten minutes, nonetheless. In Uprising, the ups outweigh the downs and at the end we are just happy to have Oliver back where he belongs. As the tension in the Glades has reached its tipping point, the […]

Arrow’s Midnight City Hits the Bullseye

by Laura Cerroneon January 29, 2015
No one was quite sure how the storyline of Arrow would pan out sans Ollie after the midseason finale, but the writers’ team must know what they are doing as Midnight City kept the drive on. It was a week of very mixed emotions for the citizens of Starling City and those not present. Between Oliver […]

by Laura Cerroneon January 21, 2015
Episode 10– Left Behind The episode opens with a recap of the mounting plotlines in season 3, ending with the iconic scene of Ra’s al Ghul driving a sword into Oliver’s abdomen. The show picked back up on action starting with a cop chase that goes poorly. Arsenal and Digg, dressed as the Arrow, try […]
