Gotham - Season 1, Episode 9 - Rotten Tomatoes

Harvey Dent



Critic Consensus: Despite a solid procedural plot -- and the introduction of Dent himself -- "Harvey Dent" is mostly an uneventful episode that adds little to the overall story arc.

Critic reviews for Harvey Dent

"Harvey Dent" delved deep into "I don't need to see this" territory, more so than any other episode of Gotham before it.

I was engaged for pretty much the whole hour. Plus, I'm intrigued by Harvey Dent's arrival.

What we actually got of the show's second Harvey felt like too much, too soon.

December 30, 2014 | Full Review…

It was a comfortable episode that steadily built on the rubble of everything that got blowed up good in "Penguin's Umbrella" and "Spirit of the Goat."

Dent was a great addition to the show. He's idealistic but realizes sometimes you can't go by the book to get the job done.

December 30, 2014 | Full Review…

The case-of-the-week is compelling, the mob power struggle continues to move in interesting directions, and we even get some wonderful development in terms of Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle.
