Gotham “Damned If You Do…” (2015.09.21) – In Review

“Damned If You Do” brings Gotham back for a new season, with the city in a time of change since last we saw it. The Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor) is now the boss of the underworld in Gotham City, having had seen Carmine Falcone off into retirement and having had killed off Fish Mooney (though as they say, if you haven’t seen the body, don’t believe they’re dead). <continue reading>

Gotham “Beasts of Prey” (2015.04.13) – In Review

‘Beasts of Prey’ – an interesting variation on the Birds of Prey comics title that’s integral to the world of the Batman. In this case, it refers to a serial killer, and the episode kicks off an arc.

‘The Blind Fortune Teller’ shows that even in Gotham City, a date night does not exclude a cop from the possibility that he might end up in a murder investigation. Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie) is attending the circus with Leslie Thompkins (Morena Baccarin). It’s a circus with meaning for comics fans, because this is Haly’s, the same company that the Graysons worked for. In fact, we meet the two people who, in comics lore, will marry and have a son named Richard “Dick” Grayson, though at first meeting, they’re not at that point in their lives. <continue reading>
