(OK, Carol Kane realizes it and that’s why Carol Kane is great.) Here are 15 times I unintentionally laughed out loud during last night’s ‘Gotham.’

‘Gotham’ is not a very good drama. Though, it has become a very good comedy; the problem is ‘Gotham’ has yet to realize it’s a comedy. Monday night’s episode, ‘Viper,’ featured a poison that made its victims crave milk and cheese.
