Welcome back to another installment of the Monday Morning Critic. In this space each week, I’ll be looking at the week that was in addition to the week ahead in television. The format will shift each week, as the world of TV will dictate the form and content of each piece. In this week’s installment, I look at the premiere of The USA Network’s upcoming comedy ‘Benched,’ plus take stock of the Fall season of TV thus far.

Monday night’s ‘Gotham,’ titled 'Arkham,' featured a villain who used some sort of telescope-type object, with a nifty extending blade, to kill people. I like to think his name is Telescope Stab Man. Telescope Stab Man is hilarious for his use of such a convoluted weapon, which, yes, is par for the course when it comes to ‘Gotham’ – a hilarious show that doesn’t realize it’s hilarious. Anyway, here are the 16 moments during this week’s ‘Gotham’ that made me literally laugh out loud.

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.

Gotham City Citizens Vent to Seth Meyers: "Batman Is Like That Naked Cowboy Guy in Times Square"

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.

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.
