Selina Kyle



Critic Consensus: An improvement over the pilot episode, Gotham's "Selina Kyle" gives a handful of its characters some much-needed development, further distinguishing it from other incarnations of the Batman universe.

Critic reviews for Selina Kyle

Gotham is still trying really hard to find what kind of show it wants to be. And honestly, there are moments where I see a spectacular show just under the surface of the show that is actually happening on my TV.

It's really going to have to decide if it wants to be a Tim Burton Batman story without Batman or a Christopher Nolan Batman story without Batman.

[The second] episode was probably a nice change of pace. Focusing on Selina helped to flesh out her character in a way that was impossible in the pilot. Hopefully it wasn't a one-time thing, as there's still a lot left to learn about her.

It was stronger episode than the pilot. The characters had more time to develop -- and the villains had more opportunity to up the creep factor.

When you scrape away the layers of lunacy covering "Selina Kyle"... the episode contained some strong character moments that brought our cast into sharper focus than the pilot initially allowed.

Gotham City is caught between two opposing forces, but they aren't good and evil. No, the big war in Gotham is between camp and grit, and in the battle of 'Selina Kyle," nobody wins
