Really?!

 

Her death was one of the best moments in the season finale. But I suppose I never ruled out her return. Falling to a watery grave is such a cliche, and just an excuse to bring her back. Penguin should have just blown her head off.

I hate how the earlier promos said "Returns February", then it's literally the last day of February. Sigh
But anyway new promo:

Yeah, I was actually kind of pissed when I found out it won't be back until the end of the month. I don't care what all the haters say either, it's a fantastic show. Those clips with Mr. Freeze are pretty chill. :lol:

That's really disappointing but I knew she would be back as soon as I saw the season 1 finale. Hopefully Penguin will finish her off for good.

Changing the pronunciation of Fries' name kind of pisses me off in that nerd rage type of way. Just piss all over Paul Dini. Don't let him in on this show, f*ck a beloved character's story up, and on top of it, tell him he's dumb for naming the character the way he did.

you need to stop watching this show dude, it will start to mess with your actual knowledge of all good things bat and start seeping into your lore. i have chosen to disregard this entire venture from now on and will not acknowledge it's existence during any batmanic conversational pub debate. since making this decision my life has improved tenfold, i instantly gained 5 girlfriends, a better job, won a million dollars from powerball and can now commune with flightless birds. you can do this too

Nora's last name is not a deal breaker. Frankly, I thoroughly enjoyed last night's episode. It's just about the only show I'll actually watch on TV.

 

That aside, I cringe at the thought of Fish returning. I want that b*tch 6 feet under. Ugh.

 

Oh, and Hugo Strange!? Not sure why I didn't see his inclusion coming. It was a pleasant surprise.

Played by B.D. Wong, if he seems sort of familiar it's because he was also the Whiterose leader in Mr. Robot.

Noticed that when I saw him the first time.

 

I was sadly able to only watch the first 30 minutes or so of the episode, although they really stepped up their game. I stopped watching midway between Season 1 due to how much of a snooze fest it was for me. This will probably make me binge on the second season :p.

This show has definitely improved. It's now Villain of the Week stories with underlying overall arcs. Or at least I hope that's the direction they go. It's still not great. I still wish they'd show Bruce more as a kid than a mini-Batman. I still hate how the villains, classic Batman villains, are all twenty or more years older than Bruce.

I have to say though, I've never seen anyone tell the story of Mr. Freeze and f*ck it up.

I don't know. If they keep the tone and pace of the last episode, great. But otherwise it's been... Blah.

I'm rewatching Gotham season 1 on dvd while i wait for season 2 to start, whoever chooses the ringtones for the mobile phones has a sense of humour from Zsasz's Funky Town ringtone to the Final Countdown.

So what'd you guys think of last night's episode? So much was going on I had to wonder if we'd already reached the season finale. But seriously, I really enjoyed watching Riddler finally come into his own...I'm sure there will be a flaw to his plan though (obviously because Gordon can't stay at Blackgate forever). I also thought it was interesting to see Gordon push Lee away, and at the same time Barbara wakes up. My theory is that Strange will bring her back to sanity in the same way he brought Penguin to sanity. It's a wild thought, but maybe, just maybe, Gordon and her will get back together once Barbara is back to 'normal'. Her insanity wasn't exactly her fault, and she had a good heart from the start, so maaaaayybe? :p

I'm hoping Fox8 picks this up for season 3 like they did with The Vampire Diaries.

While I'm loving the show in general, I'm having a nerd-ton of problems with all the timing.  Mr Freeze's name is pronounced "Fries" and his wife is dead and shattered? Bruce is already going out in the world to try and live?  The Riddler is already a thing?

 

Bruce knows Selina as kids?  Still not over this....

Yeah. They're not good enough writers to make a compelling show about Jim Gordon, so they decided to grab as much Batman without actually showing Batman. And they're not good enough writers to make their own compelling villains, so they grab as many Batman villains as they can.

As for Bruce. If this was just going to be a show about Gordon, I would want Bruce to be more of a kid. But since they've gone the way they have, I think Bruce becoming Batman, or at least figuring out that he wants to be Batman, is the most compelling part of the show now. Not sure how long that will last, though. You can't have 10-15 years of Bruce training, until Manzous is old enough to play a convincing Batman. I bet if they could go back, they'd have the pilot the same, and then immediately after, they'd have a time jump, and cast an 18 year old Bruce. That way they could show a Bruce who is old enough to look like Batman by the reasonable end of the show, 5-10 years down the line.

This time around I actually like Fish. I always knew I'd like her more after she'd finally die, but this...this I didn't expect.

Fish in moderation is okay. It's when there are whole episodes, after episodes of her that she gets tiresome.

You guys still watching this show?

 

I thought tonight's episode was TERRIFIC. The season has been pretty slow though, and I'm not sure how I feel about Penguin falling in love with The Riddler. It's fine...makes for a more dynamic relationship...but...yeah. It kind of came out of the blue.
