Gotham Review: Crazy and Ludicrous Rule in “All Will Be Judged”

by Jeff Fountainon May 23, 2017
As season three begins to wind down, Gotham has some interesting story lines to deal with that will have a big impact on the overall tone of the show. However, in “All Will Be Judged”, the writers decided to take a mini time out from that to give us a few moments of head shaking […]

Gotham Review: The Gangs All Here in “The Primal Riddle”

by Jeff Fountainon May 9, 2017
While there were a lot of fun story lines this week, in the end there was too much going on, leaving the episode a little convoluted and messy. You can have great plot arcs going on but if it seems like it’s kind of thrown together like it was this week, the overall impact is […]


Gotham Review: A Solid Return in “How The Riddler Got His Name”

by Jeff Fountainon April 25, 2017
The Riddler, The Court of Owls, Bruce’s doppelganger…this episode did indeed touch on a lot of important points in the crazy world of Gotham. However, in the end, the episode was all about Cory Michael Smith and his amazing work as Edward Nigma and his birth into The Riddler. Gotham has been building to this […]

Gotham Review: Fall Finale Flops with ‘Beware the Green-Eyed Monster’

by Jeff Fountainon November 29, 2016
Just when I thought Gotham was getting its act together, throwing out some coherent story lines and developing some characters again, along comes ‘Beware the Green-Eyed Monster’ and the show went right back in the toilet again. Usually any type of finales have some sort of kick to them, cliffhanger, exciting new plot arc but […]


Gotham Review: Interesting Storylines Come Together In “Time Bomb”

by Jeff Fountainon November 22, 2016
While this week’s episode still embraced its usual chaos and bloody ways, it was refreshing to see some interesting and well thought out storylines weave their way through the violence. Tying up or tying together plot threads is not usually Gotham’s strong suit but in ‘Time Bomb’ we were able to enjoy that and much […]

Gotham Review: “Blood Rush” Is a Big, Ugly Mess

by Jeff Fountainon November 8, 2016
As we march forward to Barnes becoming totally taken over by that evil blood coursing through his veins, which was a lot of fun this week, it became apparent that no one thought about what to do with the rest of the episode as it was well…a disaster. Each part felt boring and incomplete, not […]


Gotham Review: Crazy Rules the Streets in “New Day Rising”

by Jeff Fountainon October 11, 2016
Even though Gotham continues to be a bit messy, “New Day Rising” was a lot of fun and let the crazy people come out and play. The Riddler, Penguin and Mad Hatter take center stage and there was on Fish Mooney again so all in all, it was a good week. With election day upon […]

Gotham Review: Long Awaited Arrival Fizzles in “Azrael”

by Jeff Fountainon May 3, 2016
After weeks of pumping his arrival, Azrael finally made his debut this week and it was strange to say the least. While he looked great and Theo Galavan is convincing as the brainwashed vigilante, when Azrael was on screen it was almost a bit too cartoonish to take seriously. However, there were other good moments […]


Gotham Review: The Riddler Bares His Teeth in “Mad Grey Dawn”

by Jeff Fountainon March 22, 2016
As Gotham continues its march towards the end of season two, the darkness that is invading each episode is becoming so common place now it’s like visiting an old friend each week. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy the dark elements that seem to seep into every pore of this show now, I just hope […]
