The new season of Gotham is here and it’s just as shitty as the last one, maybe worse.
Out of the gate, if you don’t know that the Joker guy is the red headed dude, you have the worst guessing in history. That said, I’d be mad if they DIDN’T make ginger into the Joker.
Gordon goes from being a street cop to unemployment back to detective in this episode. Somehow, none of it is interesting at all. The fat delusional king idiot at the beginning randomly encounters Gordon, too.
The entire episode builds up to a big explosion and escape at Arkham. Know what was more interesting than this? A huge knot I saw get mashed. What?
Oh yeah, even though the season finale had Bruce discover the Batcave, the whole episode is focused on him getting through – prepare yourself – a door. When he does, he finds a bit of wisdom from this shitty series:
You can have happiness or the truth. Please pick happiness.
Of course, the truth is that religion is make-believe and Christianity was created by power hungry men with misguided ideals and morals. I wonder if that’s what they’re saying too – or if it’s going to be a lot more simple like “OOH, GOTHAM CORRUPT, COPS BAD.”
The Riddler/Nygma is now officially nuts. No one cares.
Penguin calls Selina like a “cat” which is enough of the references for me.
I would say the show began with another terrible effort but…ok, yeah. I’m saying that.
