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.
As much as I love The Dark Knight tribute, I was glad to see Jerome find his own voice as the Joker, or at least the abstract Joker.
Another solid episode, if a bit illogical from time to time. But I can deal with a little illogic if I'm entertained, and I certainly was here.
Despite the frustrating blandness of this episode's heroes, "Knock, Knock" has done a great job of cutting down on irrelevant subplots solely for the sake of including as many characters as possible.
Granted, only one week has passed since the season 2 premiere, but already the show has made major headway into spurring along the villainous presence on the show, especially with regard to one fan-favorite character.
