Gotham is chugging along with increasingly reliable stories. The first season finale of Gotham left us with a second season that ramped up the drama and drew much more specifically on the stories that make Batman great.
Threatening Bruce Wayne’s life over and over again does seem pretty redundant. They can mess with teh characters, but an element of dramatic irony means nothing really terrible is going to happen to Bruce, beyond the whole mum and dad getting killed.
There is good use of familar Batman characters and enough new ones to keep it interesting.
All generally positive reviews aside, my favourite and most memorable moment in all episodes is when Hugo Strange says to a drugged Jim Gordon, “You’ve never heard of a secret council.”
