We've been deservedly hard on FOX's laughable 'Gotham' in its inaugural three episodes, but with ratings across the board proving notably strong, the network has officially decided to make the best of a Bat-situation. Despite the show's own stars touting the virtue of a 16-episode order, the Batman prequel drama has officially been extended to a full 22 episodes for its first run.
On Thursday, September 25, 'How to Get Away with Murder' lit the blogosphere on fire. The series, executive produced by 'Scandal' creator Shonda Rhimes, featured actors Jack Falahee and Conrad Ricamora in flagrante, fiercely making out with each other before ripping each others' clothes off. The following week, these two were at it again, "only this time, I get to do you," said Ricamora's Oliver. And that's apparently only a steamy preview of what's coming up.
Have you ever wondered what Gotham City is really like? (For the sake of this exercise, please ignore that the city is a fictitious comic book construction.) Do the people there really care about Batman? What else does the city have to offer both residents and visitors? Is it nice? Where is it located? All these questions and more...well, might not be actually answered by this hilarious 'Late Night With Seth Meyers' sketch, but it comes pretty close.
‘Gotham’ continues to be a laugh out loud hilarious show, even though it’s not really designed to be funny. As we’ve said, ‘Gotham’ would be best just to stop pretending that it’s a serious show and just own the fact that it’s almost as campy as its ‘60s era ‘Batman’ counterpart. On this week’s episode of ‘Gotham,’ a villain, played by former ‘Daily Show’ correspondent Dan Bakkedahl, terrorizes Gotham City with balloons. Here are the 17 moments on ‘Gotham’ that made me laugh out loud.
FOX’s ‘Gotham’ detects its second installment in “The Balloonman,” as Gordon and Bullock pursue a vigilante killing corrupt city officials via weather balloon, while Oswald Cobblepot returns to the city, and word of his supposed demise puts Gordon's career at risk.
Well, we can't say we didn't see this one coming. After FOX's 'Gotham' added a young Harvey Dent to its ludicrous gallery of prequel Batman villains, we now know who will grow into a young Two-Face. 'Masters of Sex' (and 'Heroes!' Don't forget 'Heroes!') star Nicholas D'Agosto has landed the role of 'Gotham' ADA Harvey Dent, a character likely to become a major fixture on the series.
Say what you will about FOX's 'Gotham' doing its best as a series without Batman, but that doesn't mean we won't meet some of the city's earlier vigilantes in Jim Gordon's quest to clean up the town. Case in point, take a look at the full set of photos from next Monday's latest 'Gotham' installment "The Balloonman!"
‘Gotham’ is not a good television show. As we discussed last week, it could be a good show, but it needs to embrace the fact that it’s pure camp and stop trying to pretend that it’s a Serious Drama. And, again, it’s been awhile since we’ve had a campy superhero property; it could be fun! (Then again, there technically isn’t a superhero in this show because Bruce Wayne is a little kid. Never mind.) Anyway, for the meantime, ‘Gotham’ does take itself seriously and as long as it does, we will list the “moments that unintentionally made me laugh out loud” in every episode.
FOX’s ‘Gotham’ detects its second installment in “Selina Kyle,” as the future Catwoman (Camren Bicondova) finds herself kidnapped by a child-trafficking ring, while Oswald Cobblepot struggles to regain a foothold outside of Gotham City, and Fish Mooney faces Don Carmine Falcone.
FOX Batman prequel drama 'Gotham' notably divided critics and fans alike with last week's premiere, while early word on tonight's "Selina Kyle" isn't faring much better, but the pre-superhero TV series is forging full-steam ahead with a rogues gallery of Bat-mythology. A new trailer for the upcoming season reveals not only David Zayas as Sal Maroni, but also Victor Zsasz, Arkham Asylum, and potentially even a nod to the villainous Scarecrow!
