Critic reviews for Rise of the Villains: Knock, Knock
The show has become a fun, but insane, train ride, but that train is dipping dangerously close to running completely off the tracks.
Batman is known for its rogue's gallery, and Joker is easily the most notorious rogue, so to focus on him and his benefactor is smart.
The crew of villains completely proved they have what it takes to drag the city of Gotham down into the pits of hell after tonight's bloody episode, "Knock, Knock."
It was enough to give anyone tonal whiplash. The craziest part is that Gotham has still definitively improved over its first season.
At the end of last week's season premiere, I was cautiously optimistic that the writers would avoid its usual one step forward, two steps back routine, but tonight definitely felt like shame on me territory.
