While "Viper" adds some much-appreciated Batman mythology to its origin story, Gotham struggles to figure out what kind of show it's going to be.
Gotham finally felt like a complete comic book puzzle with no soggy pieces that didn't fit. Except for maybe like one of those Fish Mooney/Liza the Streetfighting Lounge Singer scenes.
Five episodes in and I still feel like Gotham is treading water, trying to figure out where it wants to go.=
This show is still incredibly goofy and silly... The good news in last night's episode was that the goofiness was funnier than it's been thus far, with significantly less melodrama in the mix.
This episode struck the best balance between the procedural tone, seeding the Batman mythology, and actually telling a story that matters on its own terms.
What a weird and strange show. A lot of Gotham's sins could be forgiven if it was also a good show. But for now, it's just sad to watch.
The downfall of Gotham has primarily been congestion... But in the fifth episode, those distractions were kept in check, though not without problems.
Good stuff all around, even with the inherent ridiculousness of the main Viper storyline.
There's no spark this week. No scene or storyline that grabs you. The script just takes various characters from A to B via the most predicable routes imaginable.
"Viper" is an okay episode of television... It is average and that is okay, but I am ready to see more.
This week felt better than average, by the show's own standards... Even better, the plot, hatched by a damaged crusader of a chemist, deepened the larger story.
