Last episode was bad. I switched over about midway through to the football game.

Highlight was the bimbo they dressed up in nerd garb as Nygma's crush.

I actually liked it. Not the goat thing, per se, but they are finally starting to do something interesting with the characters. Also, no Fish Mooney.

That. I enjoyed it. Liked that Bullock wasn't a complete dick, and Nygma was interesting. Also good to see Gordon in fisticuffs. Was an interesting story, I didn't quite see the twist coming. I'm sure I'm just stupid like that, but like I said: ignorance adds to my entertainment smiley

Finished watching the latest episode and I really liked it. I didn't necessarily buy Bullock's switch, but they finally gave Donal Logue some good lines to work with so I'll take it. Did anyone notice that Victor Zsasz (a future Batman villian/serial killer) was played by the same guy who just played the Mist on Flash.

Necro!

I'm just now getting around to this show on Netflix.  I dig it. 

I really like the characterizations of Bruce Wayne, Penguin, and Riddler.  They did a great job not making Bruce too "cute" -- he comes off as a realistically precocious and serious kid.  I love how the Riddler's core personality of egotistical cleverness is already fully formed and all that's really different about him from the supervillain version of him is his circumstances.  And I really like the slow arc of the Penguin in becoming a power player -- all that barely concealed frustration as he grovels to his various bosses while looking for the spot to slip the knife is wonderful.

Gordon and Bullock are fine; I think their dynamic improves as Bullock becomes less "generic crooked cop" and we see him struggling to walk the line to some extent.

The first season kinda drags and I hated Jada Pinkett throughout the whole season.  Second season already has a different tone to it and I am interested again to see what happens.

Thought the last episode was epic, digging the "jerome" joker.

I haven't watched the 2nd episode this season but I thought most of the first season worked as a different take on the Batman/Gotham mythos - except for Fish Mooney. God she was SO FUCKING AWFUL from start to finish. The show is better for her loss. The new season started pretty strong, IMO. Lots of room for character development and tension.

The maniax seem interesting but the whole angsty Bruce Wayne stuff is just boring and might as well be replaced by more Penguin stuff to balance the insane with the more organized side of crime (and Gordon being forced to recognize that sometimes status quo isn't so bad when the alternative is something like the maniax)

Welp, that went right the fuck off the deep end, in a good way. I think the proper way to watch this show is to stop trying to figure out how they are going to turn these characters into a Batman story and just enjoy the ride. THE CRAZY CRAZY INSANE-O RIDE. Kid Joker is KILLING it, as is the Riddler. And I'm really digging Guy Ritchie's Alfred.

I wasn't into this last season, but have heard good things since they got rid of Fish (She made the show unwatchable for me.) Having a good time watching so far.

Bottom line is, Gotham is right now about the only show capable of giving you game of throne type twists and game of thrones type writing.

100%.  A very high standard was set for the next actor to take it on in a major way....

I have to admit I'm only tuning in and watching s1 for the first time for the Penguin. Best actor on the show.

This was one of my favorite episodes so far. Capped off a really solid origin story for Riddler and finally let Penguin do something over the top Penguiny both on the same show. Penguin's plan was over the top and campy, but I didn't mind that.

Sometimes I cringe at the contrasts on this show. It'll go from so over the top campy with a Tim Burton vibe, like the entire character of Theo Galvan (who I'm liking less and less each episode). And then you'll have stuff like the Riddler subplot that is just so well acted that you put up with the fact that all the smart characters on the show should have seen through Galvan from the get go. Galvan is actually becoming this seasons' Fish Mooney - I can't wait until they move on from him.

So this is back for the second half of its season 2 and I really enjoyed the first episode with mr. Freeze (Fries) for the rather dark atmosphere of the entire episode (with no scenes of Bruce spoiling the pacing).  Oh ho ho ho. Reallllly?

I'd grown tired of this show and was only watching it in the background while doing other tasks... but the return of Jerome (the future Joker) has given it a real nice punch.  If you gave up, I might go back to it.

Just watched the season finale. Lead exactly where I expected it to with the Bruce story. Couple interesting twists, further character developments, and some surprising deaths.

I had to struggle through season one of this show but as its continued I've really come to enjoy it. I'm really curious to see where things go now especially after the Season 3 finale
