Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
90% Gotham: Season 3 - Heroes Rise: The Primal Riddle (TV Episode) In the end, "The Primal Riddle" offers no answers, nothing new and no excitement beyond a "Did you see what they did there?" gag straight out of a "Family Guy" episode.‐ CBR

92% Gotham: Season 3 - Mad City: New Day Rising (TV Episode) The show has settled into its new year with the same predictable plots. But a funny thing happens on the way to the doldrums: the series' veteran cast finally starts to feel comfortable in its cartoonish skin.‐ CBR

86% Gotham: Season 3 - Heroes Rise: Destiny Calling (TV Episode) Other aspects of the story deliver some dramatic moments on paper, but in classic Gotham fashion, nothing truly surprises and mostly the action feels like a retread of previous plot points.‐ CBR

78% Gotham: Season 3 - Heroes Rise: Pretty Hate Machine (TV Episode) While the rest of "Pretty Hate Machine"...is a fast-paced hour of television, nothing in it can rise above the pure brainlessness of the narrative.‐ CBR

78% Gotham: Season 3 - Heroes Rise: Light the Wick (TV Episode) Even the show's more ardent hanger-ons are likely getting bored of this game.‐ CBR

80% Gotham: Season 3 - Heroes Rise: All Will Be Judged (TV Episode) We get strung along by a few familiar faces while the real action waits yet another week in this interminably long season.‐ CBR

82% Gotham: Season 3 - Heroes Rise: How the Riddler Got His Name (TV Episode) The occasional swells of creepy Elfman-esque music and well-composed shots of the grey, gruesome city can't make up for a multitude of plot holes and overkill dynamics.‐ CBR

86% Gotham: Season 4 (TV, 2017-2018) Because, against all odds, "Pax Penguina" was a good hour of superhero television. It's the rare episode of Gotham that showed off the series' black humor strengths and found a way to play with various elements of the comic character's history.‐ CBR

100% Gotham: Season 3 - Mad City: Smile Like You Mean It (TV Episode) If the show continues to play with the imagery and tone of Batman stories past with next week's Winter Finale, it may actually leave us wanting more for the first time in...ever.‐ CBR

92% Gotham: Season 3 - Mad City: The Gentle Art of Making Enemies (TV Episode) After tonight's generally fun, action-packed episode of Fox's "Gotham," the real reason the show has never come together is clear. In short, it was never a Batman show before now.‐ CBR

85% Gotham: Season 3 - Mad City: The Executioner (TV Episode) Problem is that his journey, though wrapped in some ridiculous yet satisfying comedy business, is likely too little too late for this iteration of the character.‐ CBR

91% Gotham: Season 3 - Mad City: Time Bomb (TV Episode) That grotesque zig-zag style served this week's "Time Bomb" episode well.‐ CBR

75% Gotham: Season 3 - Mad City: Beware the Green-Eyed Monster (TV Episode) Jim looks like a jealous killer in the same way the episode looks like a classic thriller. You feel it for a second, but you know it won't last long.‐ CBR

75% Gotham: Season 3 - Mad City: Ghosts (TV Episode) The quality of these stories varies about as wildly as we've come to expect from the show, but for once the drama finds its balance where it matters.‐ CBR

86% Gotham: Season 3 - Mad City: Anything for You (TV Episode) That villainous plot is up next week, and viewers can only hold out hope that the adventure will present a more honest set of twists than we got this time.‐ CBR

92% Gotham: Season 3 - Mad City: Follow the White Rabbit (TV Episode) But "Follow The White Rabbit" falls into old, familiar feelings - all the rage of a dramatic story with no kind of beating heart to make us fall in love.‐ CBR

69% Gotham: Season 3 - Mad City: Red Queen (TV Episode) But with this latest, finally drug-fueled tribute to "Alice In Wonderland's" arrival, the Fox drama played more like a total square's theoretical description of what drugs are like than a turned on, tuned out journey into the center of Jim Gordon's psyche‐ CBR

58% Gotham: Season 3 - Mad City: Blood Rush (TV Episode) While the show is frequently a mess of mixed motivations, gruesome gore and thin story logic, the occasional hour of the program ties its disparate threads together with one singular purpose‐ CBR

92% Gotham: Season 3 - Mad City: Better to Reign in Hell... (TV Episode) "Gotham" can stop playing the origins game and let its characters take full advantage of their weird world. But one episode in, it's unclear whether something original is in the offing for this cast.‐ CBR

69% Gotham: Season 3 - Mad City: Burn the Witch (TV Episode) But despite a few standout elements, the results are too close to the nonsensical plot mechanics that sunk its previous years on air. And even when the story tries to pull out an old familiar feeling, the results are unconvincing at best.‐ CBR

93% Gotham: Season 3 - Mad City: Look Into My Eyes (TV Episode) But if tonight's episode of "Gotham" is any indication, the show is working towards a similar shape from last year. And that may not be a bad thing.‐ CBR
