Gotham “What the Little Bird Told Me” (2015.01.19) – In Review

‘What The Little Bird Told Him’ picks up where the previous episode of Gotham left off.

We open up with a flashback to several years in the past, with a younger Harvey Bullock (Donal Logue) and his veteran partner, Detective Dicks (Dan Hedaya) intervening in the actions of a masked serial killer with a goat motif, which results in the death of the suspect. <continue reading>
