I feel like there were hints of Penguin being gay the whole time. Nothing stereotypical like him loving musicals or commenting on fashion. Subtle things.

It's probably the most interesting plot line this show has come up with.

Well, OK. The past 2 or 3 episodes there were moments where I thought "is there something between them?" But I tossed it aside because as liberal as the show's been, I didn't think they'd actually go through with it. And yeah, Penguin has definitely been effeminate, but still, I think this is unprecedented. I'm not necessarily complaining, because yes, I think it's probably the most interesting plot line as well. There's nothing wrong with them taking new takes on the characters. That's what keeps the show interesting, frankly.

I've actually liked the last few episodes.

But... The Talon was disappointing. The Talons are supposed to be the ultimate assassins. They go in, kill their target, and no one ever sees them. That's how they can operate for hundreds of years without the world even suspecting they really exist. They're supposed to make Ra's al Ghul's league look like amateurs. Hell, they're so quiet they make Batman look like a parade with Joker as the grand Marshall.

My point is, a Talon shouldn't be beaten by two kids their butler and mom.

Monaghan doing a full on Heath Ledger impersonation is kind of gross, in my opinion.

Make the character your own, I say.

It didn't bother me all that much. I took it as a tribute, if anything.

 

Totally bummed that we only have one more episode before 24 Legacy takes over for a few months. So lame.

And I continue my viewing of this. Begrudgingly. They're ruining the Court of Owls still. Giving them faces, and not having their Talon be a ruthless "no witnesses" killing machine. The thing about the Court of Owls is you need to believe that no one knows about them. It took Batman his entire life to discover them. But in Gotham it seems like everyone suddenly knows them. It's not a fairytale Bruce Wayne heard as a kid and disregarded as an adult as a myth.

But I'm just repeating myself.

Started watching this show a few weeks back and just finished the second season. I actually kind of like it, though the timetable on things seems a bit early. By the time Bruce will be Batman all of the villains will be really old. He's about 15 in the show's continuity right now from what I gather but all of his future villains like Riddler and Penguin are in their 30's. If I read about Year One right, Bruce doesn't fully embrace the Batman persona until he's about 25. I never imagined any of the villains being much older than Bruce but I'm not a comic reader so I could be wrong. Maybe Penguin, but Riddler seemed to be a little younger to me.

You just have to accept that they realized that a Batman show without Batman or his fully fleshed out and adult villains is not entertaining. Or at least not as simple to make entertaining.

I liked the premiere, though I still think it's a bit early for Bruce to be a vigilante. Penguin continues to steal every scene he's in and I'm excited to see what they do with Scarecrow.

 

Promo for episode 2.
