73% Gotham: Season 1 - Lovecraft (TV Episode) If Gotham has one flaw above all else (worse, one flaw that's continued to befuddle the show just as profoundly in its pilot as its mid-season finale), it's that it piles on villain after villain and then has nowhere to put them.‐ Film School Rejects

97% Game of Thrones: Season 5 - The House of Black and White (TV Episode) Thanks to this episode, we know for sure that leadership in the wide world of Westeros is anything but Black and White.‐ Film School Rejects

57% Gotham: Season 1 - All Happy Families Are Alike (TV Episode) Gordon's storyline was a cut above- sure, Gotham rearranged everyone's motivations with no warning... but Ben McKenzie and John Doman were strong enough performers last night to make all that begrudging respect feel real.‐ Film School Rejects

58% Gotham: Season 1 - The Anvil or the Hammer (TV Episode) I'm talking about the Riddler, who just nailed my absolute best-case-scenario hopes for Gotham when the show was first announced.‐ Film School Rejects

65% Gotham: Season 1 - Under the Knife (TV Episode) I'll just say this: "Under the Knife" was a blast to watch. And I would be perfectly fine if the series let Fish Mooney's storyline end where it currently stands. Fish was shot! Her helicopter is crashing! Is she ok? *shrugs*‐ Film School Rejects

55% Gotham: Season 1 - Beasts of Prey (TV Episode) "Beasts of Prey" had more than a few moments of genius - a very strung out Reg bellowing "I'm gonna TELL ON YOU!" with the same spittle-flying viciousness someone would bellow "I'm gonna EAT YOUR ENTIRE FAMILY!" is just perfect. ‐ Film School Rejects

75% Gotham: Season 1 - Everyone Has a Cobblepot (TV Episode) Gotham's leaving for six weeks straight, and "Everyone Has a Cobblepot" closes with a devastating reveal.‐ Film School Rejects

86% Gotham: Season 1 - Red Hood (TV Episode) By far, this is the biggest, most impactful and overall best-executed punch of drama that Gotham's ever landed.‐ Film School Rejects

52% Gotham: Season 1 - The Blind Fortune Teller (TV Episode) "The Blind Fortune Teller" is everything Gotham's supposed to be: brimming with a slightly unhinged, goofy gothic quality, clown fistfights, supervillain origins and some stuff I can't even comprehend.‐ Film School Rejects

60% Gotham: Season 1 - The Scarecrow (TV Episode) Sure, the actual Scarecrow material was a mess, but there was enough of that madcap gothic Gothamness to keep everyone entertained for a full hour.‐ Film School Rejects

79% Gotham: Season 1 - The Fearsome Dr. Crane (TV Episode) Here, Gotham demonstrates a level of self-awareness I never realized the show was capable of.‐ Film School Rejects

67% Gotham: Season 1 - Welcome Back, Jim Gordon (TV Episode) Like I said before, " Welcome Back, Jim Gordon" may run in circles most of the time, but even those old, tired circles still have a lot of entertainment value.‐ Film School Rejects

68% Gotham: Season 1 - What the Little Bird Told Him (TV Episode) This is the kind of episode Gotham should hold up as the standard.‐ Film School Rejects

44% Gotham: Season 1 - Rogues' Gallery (TV Episode) "Rogues' Gallery" hurriedly introduces us to what will likely be the Arkham standard: ridiculous, violent camp. All the time. Non-stop. Forever. ‐ Film School Rejects

54% Gotham: Season 1 - Harvey Dent (TV Episode) In "Harvey Dent," evil takes a backseat. To the smiles and laughter of children, playful bagel fights and puppy love. It's weird. But not entirely bad-weird (or bad-weird at all, really; it's actually quite nice).‐ Film School Rejects

68% Gotham: Season 1 - The Mask (TV Episode) See? Guessing games. But the fun kind, not the kind that leave our story a tangled, frustrated mess.‐ Film School Rejects

88% Gotham: Season 1 - Penguin's Umbrella (TV Episode) The moment we've all been waiting for: an episode of Gotham where not only did Detective James Gordon avoid being the least captivating character in Gotham's menagerie of crooks and carnival freaks, he might have actually been the most captivating.‐ Film School Rejects

69% Gotham: Season 1 - Spirit of the Goat (TV Episode) A Gotham that prefers to dwell under the surface of its characters is just fine, too.‐ Film School Rejects

62% Gotham: Season 1 - Viper (TV Episode) The reasons to love this one just keep coming, unlike weeks previously, where the comic bookery was limited to "guy with the name of an unrelated supervillain" or "guy with a pointy stick," "Viper" is classic Batman.‐ Film School Rejects

75% Gotham: Season 1 - Arkham (TV Episode) "Arkham," as a pretty-good-but-not-nearly-as-good-as-the-last-few-weeks hour of Gotham, will probably not be remembered much in the great pantheon of Bat-TV.‐ Film School Rejects

60% Gotham: Season 1 - The Balloonman (TV Episode) Gotham is coming together with unbelievable speed for a show that's barely been around three weeks. Already, it's given me that "I will commit horrible deeds to see what happens next" feeling.‐ Film School Rejects

72% Gotham: Season 1 - Selina Kyle (TV Episode) The series' tone- colorful yet grim, cartoony yet graphically violent- seems so much clearer after a taking in a second hour.‐ Film School Rejects

79% Gotham: Season 1 - Pilot (TV Episode) Lift yourself up out of the comic book nitpickings, though, and Gotham is a cut above the average cop show. It's trying to do something weird and special, and it seems to be succeeding, given the amount of groundwork that's laid out in this first hour.‐ Film School Rejects

91% Mad Men: Season 7 - Person to Person (TV Episode) In some sense, every member of the former SC&P got the wonderful, sugarcoated ending they've always dreamed of. And that Don Draper sucked-back-into-the-advertising-machine ending.‐ Film School Rejects

96% Mad Men: Season 7 - The Milk and Honey Route (TV Episode) Were you expecting Weiner to off someone before the season was over? Congratulation, you were spot-on. ‐ Film School Rejects

97% Mad Men: Season 7 - Lost Horizon (TV Episode) "Lost Horizon" was an especially solid Mad Men (the closer we get to the finale, the more urgent these episodes get, and I'm not sure whether that's from the show itself or just an impending sense of finale doom).‐ Film School Rejects

97% Mad Men: Season 7 - Time & Life (TV Episode) We're... in one of the rare moments where Mad Men has a legitimate ticking clock, and the wait for next week actually has an air of what happens next? to it.‐ Film School Rejects

90% Mad Men: Season 7 - The Forecast (TV Episode) More than anything, 'The Forecast" is the first Mad Men of "The End of an Era" to really feel like the end of an era. And in typical Mad Men form, I have no earthly idea what it means.‐ Film School Rejects

62% Mad Men: Season 7 - New Business (TV Episode) In any other instance, a Mad Men that erred on the "too slow, too repetitive" side would be a minor deal, but we're in "The End of an Era" here, people. ‐ Film School Rejects

94% Mad Men: Season 7 - Severance (TV Episode) I hoped you all enjoyed this last Mad Men premiere as much as I did. Sad as it is, we're never getting another one.‐ Film School Rejects

100% Mad Men: Season 7 - Waterloo (TV Episode) What we've just seen is a prelude to the end of Mad Men. A pretty great prelude, at that.‐ Film School Rejects

A+ 82% Mad Men: Season 7 - The Monolith (TV Episode) Overall, "The Monolith" is an unbelievably strong hour of Mad Men. No huge movements of plot or dramatic twists, but something just as exciting: a sense of urgency.‐ Film School Rejects

100% Mad Men: Season 7 - Field Trip (TV Episode) [The] wafting (Don's wafting, anyway) is the centerpiece of "Field Trip," and a knockout piece of TV-watching at that.‐ Film School Rejects

93% Mad Men: Season 7 - A Day's Work (TV Episode) "A Day's Work" lacks the big oomph of story that last week had, but that's to be expected. And giving Joan and Dawn some new digs is plenty oomph enough for now.‐ Film School Rejects

87% Mad Men: Season 7 - Time Zones (TV Episode) For now, "Time Zones" gives us plenty to mull over until next week.‐ Film School Rejects

89% Mad Men: Season 7 (TV, 2014-2015) Characters, settings, and levels of cool are all swapped out indiscriminately, leaving us to piece together the real situation only as fast as Hornbacher and Matthew Weiner (on script duty) allow it.‐ Film School Rejects

75% House of Cards: Season 3 (TV, 2015) When I burned through House of Cards' third season this weekend, my entire reason for watching the show had disappeared. ‐ Film School Rejects
