Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
8/10 71% Gotham: Season 2 - Rise of the Villains: Worse Than a Crime (TV Episode) [Galavan's] importance to the narrative has held the year back, but last night's "Worse Than a Crime," the midseason finale, distanced the season from Galavan, and repurposed the character in a curious way for potential use in the future.‐ Paste Magazine

7.5/10 83% Gotham: Season 2 - Rise of the Villains: The Son of Gotham (TV Episode) It was a fine hour for a comic book drama. It was well-paced, decently written with drama and comedy and had the best action Gotham has ever put on screen. ‐ Paste Magazine

8/10 77% Gotham: Season 2 - Rise of the Villains: A Bitter Pill to Swallow (TV Episode) Two weeks from the fall finale and Gotham finds itself in what can be cautiously referred to as a groove.‐ Paste Magazine

7.5/10 71% Gotham: Season 2 - Rise of the Villains: Tonight's the Night (TV Episode) Despite the episode's cowardice in putting a lame horse to rest, "Tonight's the Night" is one of the Gotham's best efforts, of either season.‐ Paste Magazine

7/10 71% Gotham: Season 2 - Rise of the Villains: Mommy's Little Monster (TV Episode) The second half rolls in, and "My Little Monster" turns into the closest thing Gotham has ever had to an action-packed thrill ride.‐ Paste Magazine

7/10 79% Gotham: Season 2 - Rise of the Villains: By Fire (TV Episode) If the underground lab means a sudden influx of supervillains for the "Rise of the Villains" season that finds itself oddly lacking in bad folk, color me intrigued. ‐ Paste Magazine

7/10 62% Gotham: Season 2 - Rise of the Villains: Scarification (TV Episode) Luckily, Gotham did not allow its misstep {last week] to turn into a full-on slide, picking itself up quickly with a far more competent and interesting hour of television with last night's "Scarification" (though the name is supremely stupid). ‐ Paste Magazine

6/10 58% Gotham: Season 2 - Rise of the Villains: Strike Force (TV Episode) It's difficult to watch actors with real talent be done little favor by poor dialogue. Few characters appear natural on Gotham week-to-week, and last night no one did. Everything in the episode felt false, rather than characters existing in their world.‐ Paste Magazine

8/10 64% Gotham: Season 2 - Rise of the Villains: The Last Laugh (TV Episode) The commitment to serialization is paying off serious benefits and the writers look as though they have a bravery they sorely lacked last year. ‐ Paste Magazine

8/10 100% Gotham: Season 2 - Rise of the Villains: Knock, Knock (TV Episode) Gotham has taken two necessary steps forward. Now, it's time for the show to prove it can keep the ball moving down the field.‐ Paste Magazine

7.5/10 77% Gotham: Season 2 - Rise of the Villains: Damned If You Do... (TV Episode) While it's not anywhere near perfect yet, Gotham took an important step last night. The show proved that it's serious about serialization, taking its time to set up storylines rather than trying to cram one start-to-finish in an hour.‐ Paste Magazine

9.5/10 97% You're the Worst: Season 2 (TV, 2015) Season Two is supposed to be dark and wicked, which has me frightened for everyone involved, especially Edgar, but when the writing is as superb as it was in the season premiere, all you can do is hang on and enjoy the ride. ‐ Paste Magazine

4.5/10 67% A to Z: Season 1 (TV, 2014-2015) What happens at eight months, three weeks, five days and one hour? My guess is cancellation.‐ Paste Magazine

8.5/10 59% Gotham: Season 1 - All Happy Families Are Alike (TV Episode) Luckily, Bruno Heller and his team delivered an episode with real consequence and, after a season full of hours that fell apart in the final act, one that refused to let up.‐ Paste Magazine

6.5/10 60% Gotham: Season 1 - The Anvil or the Hammer (TV Episode) Gotham's inability to gleam any sort of suspense or worthwhile conclusion in both single and multi-episode arcs in the majority of its 21 episodes to date might be its largest shortcoming. ‐ Paste Magazine

77% Gotham: Season 1 - Under the Knife (TV Episode) [The Ogre] storyline, while lacking in creativity, is working fairly well to this point and will hopefully bring much-needed action, and consequence, the next few weeks (perhaps further).‐ Paste Magazine

7/10 64% Gotham: Season 1 - Beasts of Prey (TV Episode) A show that has divided its time so frustratingly throughout the season could use some clarity in the final weeks, and the Ogre storyline could provide the center Gotham needs to focus itself.‐ Paste Magazine

7.5/10 93% Gotham: Season 1 - Everyone Has a Cobblepot (TV Episode) "Everybody Has a Cobblepot" wasn't the off-the-wall feast that I anticipated coming off last week, but a methodical episode that delivered intrigue in subtler ways.‐ Paste Magazine

7/10 61% Gotham: Season 1 - The Blind Fortune Teller (TV Episode) A nice development to come out of the otherwise lackluster main narrative was the relationship between Gordon and Lee.‐ Paste Magazine

6.5/10 65% Gotham: Season 1 - The Scarecrow (TV Episode) After a string of halfway decent episodes that made Gotham's second half mostly palatable, "The Scarecrow" marked a low point for the series since its January return to air.‐ Paste Magazine

7/10 84% Gotham: Season 1 - The Fearsome Dr. Crane (TV Episode) This week was about coming back to earth, and coming to terms with the show's strengths and weaknesses. Gotham is a far cry from a great drama, but it has decent building blocks that could one day get it to that echelon.‐ Paste Magazine

7/10 78% Gotham: Season 1 (TV, 2014-2015) It was a solid-if at times bumbling and awkward-start for the show.‐ Paste Magazine
