Agent Carter 1.04: “The Blitzkrieg Button”

Considering Episode 4 of Agent Carter takes its title from a military maneuver notable for its ferocity and overwhelming power, it’s surprising that the episode itself is the most laid back...

Gotham 1.13: “Welcome Back, Jim Gordon”

Welcome back, indeed. This was the most coherent and compelling episode of Gotham to date. Not only did we get the usual surface fun—Oswald and Mama Kapelput, Fish being gleefully defiant—but...

Gotham 1.12: “What the Little Bird Told Him”

Gotham 1.10: Mid-Season Finale “Lovecraft”

I expected a great deal from Gotham. I expected it would be mostly a police procedural. I expected to strongly feature Jim Gordon, one of my favorite comic characters, and I expected it to be a...

Gotham 1.09: “Harvey Dent”

Gotham 1.08: “The Mask”

Gotham 1.07: “Penguin’s Umbrella”

It’s time to give up on my hope that Gotham will become a dark, twisted and deep story that showcases what a scary place a superhero universe can be without extraordinary heroes. Instead,...

Gotham 1.03: “The Balloonman”

If one thing is clear from three episodes of Gotham, it’s that the show is going to be obvious in its themes. Jim Gordon is always the “boy scout,” Bruce is the brooding youngster...
