Last time on Gotham, things were starting to come to a head from all the drama. Gordon escaped from prison and was now on the hunt for the person who framed him. The Penguin was dealing with his crazy-ass family and the death of his father by said crazy-ass family. Oh, and Barbara came out of her coma… unfortunately. So what shall be the aftermath of all that drama? The series is coming close to its season finale, yet there is still no solid villain to speak of. And while ‘Into the Woods’ doesn’t provide us with anything concrete, it does bring an excellent and sometimes hilarious 42 minutes. Read on for SPOILERS and more. (more…)

Last week’s Gotham featured a few key changes in the way things are going to play out for at least a couple of future episodes. The Penguin now has a father and a family, although some of those he’s related to don’t really seem to appreciate his presence. Gordon was outsmarted by Edward Nygma and is now locked away in prison for the supposed murder of another police officer. And Bruce Wayne had his first adventure on the streets, stealing cash and getting beaten to a pulp thanks to Selina’s plan to make a few bucks. This week, Gordon tries to survive behind bars and Penguin tries to survive the trials of his newfound family. Scroll on for a (SPOILER filled) review of ‘Prisoners’. (more…)

Last week on Gotham, the focus was on little Bruce Wayne and his struggle to find (and kill) the person who murdered his parents. Upon finding the man, however, Bruce had a change of heart. His “no kill” policy has begun to flourish, bringing him one step closer to becoming a proper Batman. We also saw the release of The Penguin from Arkham, although it seems that his jailer, Hugo Strange, has more in mind for him. And then there was a bit with Edward Nygma. He thinks that Gordon is catching on to him and so now the challenge is begun. This week, ‘Mad Grey Dawn’ brings more Nygma, more Penguin and the start of Bruce Wayne’s adventures on the street. Scroll on for all the info. (more…)

The Fox series Gotham is a source of much inner friction amongst Batman fans. On the one hand, it’s impeccably produced on a technical level, it’s about Batman-related characters, and it features a couple of pretty decent performances. But it’s also messy. So, so messy. It’s a vexing thing because it does all the things we hate that prequels do, like drawing too many straight lines between different characters and supposing that those characters were fully formed or near fully formed versions of themselves years before they’re supposed to be. But still, Gotham will be back for season three. (more…)

Last week on Gotham, the story of Mr. Freeze vs. the GCPD had come to a sort-of conclusion. With his wife, Nora, dead, Victor had no reason to continue. In fact, he killed himself in protest of the events of his life. But things took a twist and Hugo Strange brought him back, albeit a bit changed for the experience. Now, the focus of the show is shifting. We’re back to little Bruce Wayne and his search for the man who killed his parents. Will he finally discover the truth? Will he try to take the law into his own hands and kill the guy? Or will the Batman who swears never to kill anyone finally emerge onto the scene? Scroll on for all the details of ‘This Ball of Mud and Meanness’. (more…)

Last week on Gotham, we were introduced to Victor Fries. We also happened to meet up with a certain Hugo Strange. The city is filling up with even more of the classic bad guys from the Batman mythos and Jim Gordon is looking to have his hands full for future days. In addition, The Penguin was locked away in Arkham and is now awaiting whatever bizarre experiments Strange wants to perform on him. To make matters even more complicated, Strange wants some of Victor’s research, so those two will eventually have to butt heads. This week, ‘A Dead Man Feels No Cold’ promises to deepen the conflicts and provide us with even more Mr. Freeze goodness as Gotham moves into the second half of season 2. (more…)

Of course, that’s not to dismiss the idea of a female Joker. No, in fact it was done in Alex Ross’ Kingdom Come. But let us stop and roll our eyes as Gotham once again goes back to the Joker well after introducing Cameron Monaghan‘s Jerome last season, killing him off in the first few episodes of this season, and implying that the animus of the Clown Prince of Crime is some kind of mental virus that’s catching throughout pre-Batman Gotham City. So in that spirit, on next week’s episode of the show, we’ll meet Jeri played by Lori Petty. Guess who she wants to be when she grows up… (more…)

Months have gone by since Gotham took a Christmas break, but at last the mid-season premiere is with us. Gone are the days of Theo Galavan, one of the more annoyingly pseudo-sinister Gotham villains. In fact (spoiler!), his murder came with Jim Gordon’s full approval. So who shall be brought into the spotlight now? Perhaps someone more interesting? Perhaps one of Batman’s classic enemies? The aptly titled ‘Mr. Freeze’ says it all. But is our favorite cold-centric villain’s debut memorable? Read on to find out.

Warning! Plenty of spoilers ahead. (more…)

Gotham producers have been teasing the appearance of Azrael in the second half of this current season and now we’ve got a look at the character’s costume and a look behind the mask to confirm who is playing the role. The Sacred Order of St. Dumas has been busy this season, causing mayhem around Gotham and generally stirring up a hornets nest for James Gordon and Bruce Wayne. Now the Order is bringing out their big gun, Azrael. (more…)

POSTER

Yeah, you read that right. None other than Captain Kirk himself has signed on to perhaps one of the odder projects he’s been involved with, and in doing so steps into the world of crowd-funded entertainment. Along with genre favourites Morena Baccarin, Ray Wise and Bill Moseley, Malevolent is currently seeking funding for post-production with a release planned for later this year.  (more…)
