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.
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.
On a show that once saw someone bazooka someone else, it's hard to sit through an entire episode semi-dedicated to an awkward engagement party.
