Critic Reviews for Everyone Has a Cobblepot

Luckily, "Everyone Has a Cobblepot" managed to stay a strong episode throughout by doing what Gotham does on its best days - it stayed really, really weird.

Boring. Too much Jim, too much runaround, too much bureaucracy.

Aug 22, 2018 | Full Review…

Much like Batman '66, any attempt to bring logic to this scenario utterly annihilates it. So you can't. You just have to accept this is how things work on Gotham...

Jul 19, 2018 | Full Review…

It's impossible to imagine even the most ardent Gotham fan defending "Everybody has a Cobblepot." This is surely the weakest episode of the series, playing like a series of completely disconnected vignettes.

Jul 18, 2018 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

It's an episode that's freed of the procedural elements in which the show is usually mired, while giving Gordon and Bullock, as well as Harvey Dent, a far more important case to crack than the usual serial-killer-of-the-week.

"Everyone Has a Cobblepot" pushes the series' plot along, though usually in the most predictable way.

Jul 17, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

The C and D-stories are exactly as expendable as Dr. Dulmacher views his patients: A collection of parts, with no interest paid to how they're assembled.

The hour unfortunately left me feeling more bored than excited to go on the Fish or Jim adventures.

Mar 3, 2015 | Full Review…

This was one of those rare episodes where every plotline traces back to an earlier episode, rather than the typical introduce-then-forget-new-characters formula the writers are so fond of. Gotham should try this method more often.

Mar 3, 2015 | Full Review…

Using Commissioner Loeb as a big target, "Everyone Has a Cobblepot" brought together Gordon, Dent, Bullock, and Penguin for one unified adventure that felt good.
