Critic reviews for Mad City: Blood Rush
"Blood Rush" works perfectly as a showcase for a Captain Barnes rapidly losing control of his own mind.
While the show is frequently a mess of mixed motivations, gruesome gore and thin story logic, the occasional hour of the program ties its disparate threads together with one singular purpose
Gotham hadn't exactly been wasting Michael Chiklis, but this arc is really taking advantage of the fact the show has such a tremendous talent on the cast.
"Blood Rush" shined a bright spotlight on Barnes for the first time since his introduction. I like that he's been spun into the show's new villain, and how it also feels like a natural "Mad City" extension of the Hatter arc.
Gotham may have temporarily put a pin in its Mad Hatter storyline last week, but the "Mad City" still has plenty of wild cards still in play.
