Critic Reviews for Mad City: Look Into My Eyes

Hello, Kylo Ren meets P.U.A. spokesperson Mystery! You are Gotham's Mad Hatter! What's this guy's deal? He's good at...hypnotism.

Gotham has been leaning more towards Tim Burton's Batman movies than any other screen representation of the series, and Tetch is another design that visually fits the bill.

I'm always down for a good "criminal uses the system to his benefit" storyline, so consider me intrigued, at least for now.

"Look Into My Eyes" gave us a cool and creepy Mad Hatter, some nice Falcone family surprises, and a politically-minded Penguin.

But if tonight's episode of "Gotham" is any indication, the show is working towards a similar shape from last year. And that may not be a bad thing.

The bullets are loaded for an exciting revolver of episodes going forward. Riddle me this: will they hit their designated targets as the show advances?

Gotham is a strange but tantalizing mess of a show right now.

Sometimes, I'm not sure if Gotham deserves David Mazouz. The kid nails it again as not one, but two angsty teen characters.

Samuel's performance as Tetch feels more in line with memorable baddies like Penguin and Nygma. Plus, there's the added benefit that his arrival introduces magic into Gotham's anything-goes storytelling.

"Look Into My Eyes," was all about [Mad Hatter's] introduction, having just moved to the city from "up north." And if the mysterious, calm, psychotic Jervis Tetch didn't give you the total heebie jeebies, then you must be as mad as he is.

Political ambitions aside, "Mad City: Look Into My Eyes" dredges into the misery that is Jim Gordon's love life - and life in general - while introducing a new villain into the mix.

The Penguin-running-for-mayor storyline is as tired as it gets, but with nothing else going for it, Gotham gave itself no choice but to beat that dead bird to ultra extra death.
