So it should come as no shock to anyone who knows me well that I am a HUGE fan of professional wrestling, and while I haven't watched wrestling in recent years, I still continue to play the games. Anyways, recently I've noticed a recurring issue (among the many issues it already has) the WWE appears to have and that issue is making mid-card championships actually mean something. Over the years the WWE trimmed down their numbers of titles getting rid of The Hardcore Championship (unfortunately), The European Championship and The Cruiserweight Championship, leaving behind only The Intercontinental Championship and The United States Championship as the 2 prestigious mid-card titles...the only problem is they're not. I'll explain why after the break.
Okay, okay, after weeks of mediocre cop drama, "Gotham" is finally starting to feel comic booky and pulpish and that's a MAJOR plus. This week we find Bullock and Gordon chasing down an old enemy of Bullock's past known as "The Goat". This episode was a MAJOR step up from the previous episodes and that's largely due to the VERY noticable and welcomed lack of Fish Mooney. Let's get to the episode proper after the break.
This show continues to be an enigma (no pun intended) to me. On one end, I don't want the show to be cancelled, because that'd mean a lot of people will lose their jobs, but on the other end, I want the show to get cancelled because it's just seems to be getting worse and the glimmers of hope are getting few and far inbetween. Let's get to the meat and potatoes...
Here we are again, lads and laddies, once again back at "Gotham", turns out, I was right, Oswald is looking to snitch exclusively to Gordon and Arkham does indeed plays a big role in things. I gotta admit the Arkham thing is interesting but again, this episode fails to deliver on some prime mythology building. And we'll get to that after the break.
So the search for Joe Chill continues with Selina Kyle manning the hunt, meanwhile a crooked politician gets handled in one of the best ways possible, weather balloons. I'm still not 100% sure about how I feel about this show, sometimes it shows REAL promise and other times it spirals downward into a mediocre police drama. The best parts are still when Penguin is on screen, that's the most fun I get out of this series and Ben Mackenzie continues to turn in a great performance as James Gordon but that's about it.
