Critic reviews for Lovecraft

At the very best, it was actually really... right? Like, right for the characters these two become eventually. I enjoy the fact that Selina just can't get rid of Bruce, even though there is no conceivable reason why she wouldn't.

If Gotham has one flaw above all else (worse, one flaw that's continued to befuddle the show just as profoundly in its pilot as its mid-season finale), it's that it piles on villain after villain and then has nowhere to put them.

It's everything you could want from a midseason finale.

What largely worked about the hour was that "Lovecraft," for what seems to be the first time all season, unfolded more as an ensemble piece than the Jim Gordon show.

"LoveCraft" proves just how far the show has come by packing more action into its pre-credits sequence than the season's first few episodes combined.

Overall, the series has turned itself around. At this point, tweaking a few awful characters seems like small potatoes.
