Critic reviews for Mad City: Anything for You

Honestly, though, that final scene between Eddie and Oswald was, in that strange, odd, peculiar Gotham way...sort of beautiful?

Gotham calmed down a bit this week (by Gotham standards, anyhow) and gave us a decent episode involving characters in love, or on the cusp of love.

Since "Gotham" is never a show to leave you feeling warm and fuzzy, "Anything for You" dished out cold-blooded acts of betrayal. Problem is, these double-, triple- and quadruple-crosses were predictable and messy.

That villainous plot is up next week, and viewers can only hold out hope that the adventure will present a more honest set of twists than we got this time.

Anything for You was another really good episode in a season that has evolved into one of the more consistent comic book based shows on TV.

It was awfully fun to get most of our cast in a room together, even if the floor of that room ended up showered in blood and broken glass. All's fair in love and politics, especially where Edward Nygma and the Penguin are concerned.
