Critic reviews for Mad City: New Day Rising

Truth be told, I'm far more interested in the obvious love triangle forming between Oswald, Eddie Nygma and Butch Gilzean.

Gotham might not have Superman flying in anytime soon, but it's soaring in its own right at this point.

What does work about Mad Hatter is Samuel's pitch-perfect performance.

If only we lived in a network TV world where Penguin and The Riddler could (dysfunctionally, obviously) fall in love. These two have the more chemistry than anyone else on this show.

Who knew that the been-there-done-that mayor storyline would end its first act on such a high note?

Even the jokes at the expense of the presidential candidates couldn't lighten heavy subject matters such as suicide and incest in "Mad City: New Day Rising." (Yeah, it's one of those episodes. Oof.)
