“You think you’ve been careful so far?”
Lest we forget, Harvey Bullock repeats the phrase three times, each more incredulous than the last in the latest Gotham.
It’s a perfect line, well-delivered by Donal Logue, and points out the single biggest issue with Gotham: Jim Gordon should be dead by now.
But for plot reasons, he lives. It’s certainly not because his skills are invaluable to Gotham. Oh, he yells at people for being corrupt and he condescends to those not doing real police work but it’s been a long time since we’ve actually seen him do something that makes things better for the city.
But yet Jim holds himself up as better than everyone else. He yells at other cops, various mobsters and the Mayor and the Police Commissioner. Yet no one takes him out. This frustrates me to no end because the character has such potential.
