Gotham Recap: Like Looking Down A Deep, Dark Tunnel

This week’s episode of Gotham gave us some seriously strange business. “The Blind Fortune Teller” had circus freaks, organ harvesters, voices from beyond the grave, brainwashed sidekicks, inappropriate sleepovers and murderous kids who may or may not grow up to be the most notorious villain of all time. Just another […]

Will We Meet The Joker On Tonight’s Gotham?

If you’re like me, when you finished last week’s episode of Gotham, you were only thinking one thing: hold on, did that teaser just show us the Joker? I mean…that’s Cameron Monaghan (Shameless) at the end of this promo, playing a young version of Gotham City’s most terrifying villain…isn’t […]

Gotham Recap: Honk, Honk! It’s What Geese Say

Gotham Recap: Oh, I Brought Cannoli!

Fall TV: Gotham Premiere Knee-jerk Reaction

Those of you who know me at all, know how excited I was for the premiere of Gotham. Fox’s new foray into the superhero market features the early life of DC Comics’ Commissioner Jim Gordon and his experiences in the crime-filled and corrupt Gotham City. The show also […]
