Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
59% Gotham: Season 1 - All Happy Families Are Alike (TV Episode) Gotham's first season ends much as it lived -- with confusion, poorly plotted scenes and by turning a blind eye to everything that makes Batman great.‐ Entertainment Weekly

60% Gotham: Season 1 - The Anvil or the Hammer (TV Episode) The penultimate episode of any season is always a nail-biter, an edge-of-your-seat experience meant to build tension toward the final installment. Gotham is no different.‐ Entertainment Weekly

77% Gotham: Season 1 - Under the Knife (TV Episode) Gotham is struggling, and it's more apparent now than ever.‐ Entertainment Weekly

93% Gotham: Season 1 - Everyone Has a Cobblepot (TV Episode) It wasn't the most amazing drama and action to ever grace television, not even close, but it was 45 minutes well spent.‐ Entertainment Weekly

77% Gotham: Season 1 - Red Hood (TV Episode) "Red Hood" is a solid 45 minutes of just... nothing. Aside from Bruce and Alfred's mini arc, everything seems kind of inconsequential and bloated.‐ Entertainment Weekly

61% Gotham: Season 1 - The Blind Fortune Teller (TV Episode) This week Gotham seems comfortable filling up its runtime with little moments that serve little purpose.‐ Entertainment Weekly

64% Gotham: Season 1 - The Scarecrow (TV Episode) "The Scarecrow" is the beginning of one of Gotham's greatest madmen, Jonathan Crane, and within the episode's 45 minutes, Gotham finally does an origin story right.‐ Entertainment Weekly

88% Gotham: Season 1 - The Fearsome Dr. Crane (TV Episode) "The Fearsome Dr. Crane" is an example of Gotham I'd like to see more of.‐ Entertainment Weekly

67% Gotham: Season 1 - Welcome Back, Jim Gordon (TV Episode) "Welcome Back, Jim Gordon" is textbook filler with only small moments in between moments that forward the overarching story in any meaningful way.‐ Entertainment Weekly

64% Gotham: Season 1 - What the Little Bird Told Him (TV Episode) It's a solid foundation to build on, you just need to make sure the house doesn't fall apart in the end.‐ Entertainment Weekly

43% Gotham: Season 1 - Rogues' Gallery (TV Episode) With circumstances changed, relationships altered, and new characters created, "Rogue's Gallery" feels like a definite second act for the often misguided Batman drama, and one that hopefully learns from the first act's many mistakes.‐ Entertainment Weekly

75% Gotham: Season 1 - Lovecraft (TV Episode) Like the entire show up to this point, "Lovecraft" isn't without its flaws, but it represents another crest for the sine function that is Gotham and provides an adequate amount of excitement leading into the midseason break.‐ Entertainment Weekly

62% Gotham: Season 1 - Harvey Dent (TV Episode) This episode primarily stumbles around a pointless bomber plot that unfolds into a bunch of nothing. This is only met with equal emotionless scenes involving a lonely Jim Gordon bemoaning (maybe?) the loss of Barbara and the arrival of Harvey Dent.‐ Entertainment Weekly

83% Gotham: Season 1 - The Mask (TV Episode) Instead of charging ahead with its newfound intensity, Gotham plays it safe and continues with its familiar bag of tricks, but how much longer will audiences be content with what's familiar?‐ Entertainment Weekly

92% Gotham: Season 1 - Penguin's Umbrella (TV Episode) "Penguin's Umbrella" is in some ways pretty frustrating because it shows how great this show can really be.‐ Entertainment Weekly

67% Gotham: Season 1 - Spirit of the Goat (TV Episode) "Spirit of the Goat" drapes much needed character development on the bones of a pretty toss-away murder plot that will probably have little, if any, ramifications in future episodes. In other words, let's call it "filler."‐ Entertainment Weekly

58% Gotham: Season 1 - Viper (TV Episode) "Viper" shows that Gotham can flirt with crime drama and comic book influences and still make a show worth watching.‐ Entertainment Weekly

85% Gotham: Season 1 - Arkham (TV Episode) Once Gordon and Bullock begin investigating the homicide, Gotham slips into its familiar formula. Murder. Case Assignment. Murder Solved. Repeat... this is a time-tested formula that clearly works well.‐ Entertainment Weekly
