Gotham, Episode 1.18, “Everyone Has A Cobblepot” pits Gordon against the corrupt Gcpd

3 March 2015 11:41 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Gotham Season 1, Episode 18: ‘Everyone Has A Cobblepot’

Written by Megan Mostyn-Brown

Directed by Bill Eagles

Aired Mondays at 8pm (Et) on Fox

This week’s episode of Gotham follows up “Red Hood” just after Alfred’s wounding, which brings a reunion between Gordon and Bruce. But instead of progressing Bruce’s story, this episode prolongs their separation again for another week so that Gordon can make some genuine headway in establishing some order within the Gcpd. This has been an ongoing process for Gordon in making a change to the corrupt system, and his effect on it has been gradual, as every time Gordon thinks he has made a significant achievement, he finds that he has only cured a symptom and not the cause. This has been a beat that Gotham has repeated a few times during this second half of the season, and it’s almost to the point of being overly repetitive, »

Gotham Recap: Jeffrey Combs Is Franken-Woman!

3 March 2015 5:31 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Leave it to Gotham to chase one of its best episode with one of its worst. At its best, "Everyone Has a Cobblepot" pushes the series' plot along, though usually in the most predictable way. Tonight's investigation-of-the week plot is the exception that proves that rule (more on that shortly). But for the most part, "Everyone Has a Cobblepot" is an untenable tonal stew. Let's start with the best of tonight's subplots, and end with the worst.Jim Gordon's search for evidence that he can use against Commissioner Loeb is mostly decent, thanks in no small part to episode writer Karen Mostyn-Brown and director Bill Eagles. Two scenes where Gordon confronts Loeb are also tense, thanks to actors Ben McKenzie and Peter Scolari. McKenzie is especially exciting to watch; he makes Gordon's default De Niro–esque posturing — hands on hip and eyes rolling every way but up — work. But the »

Gotham Star Ben McKenzie Sounds Off On Whether or Not We've Already Met the Real Joker

26 February 2015 12:05 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

After Cameron Monaghan's final scene on Gotham, there's no question that his character Jerome is actually the Joker...right? After Jerome pretended to be a sweet and innocent young man all episode long, mourning his mother who was brutally murdered, Det. Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie) figured out that it was actually Jerome who killed her in the first place. When he confronted Jerome in an interrogation room in the Gcpd precinct, Jerome dropped his vulnerable act, and showed his true colors as a maniacal, sociopathic murderer who felt no remorse over the matricide. He even laughed about in a very familiar, crazy cackle! So is Jerome the Joker? E! News' own Marc Malkin caught up with McKenzie at the »

'Gotham' Preview Solves the Mystery of the Red Hood Gang

20 February 2015 1:10 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After teasing The Joker in last week's episode, Gotham is introducing another iconic DC Comics character in this week's aptly-titled episode "Red Hood", airing Monday, February 23 at 8 Pm Et on Fox. The network has released a new featurette that explores the origins of the Red Hood Gang, which, as Ben McKenzie (James Gordon) explains, will be the first time that a masked villain has been featured on the show. The actor reveals that this story begins with "a group of disorganized bank robbers," one of whom wants to be "celebrated" so he dons a Red Hood.

Donal Logue (Harvey Bullock) continues by saying that this villain thinks his Red Hood is almost like "a protective cloak," that gives him a sort of Robin Hood status. One of the scenes we see in this featurette shows the Red Hood literally throwing out money to people in the streets of Gotham after one of their bank robberies. »

10 Things You Didn’t Know About ‘The O.C.’

20 February 2015 6:00 AM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Fox had been known to deliver tantalizing storylines on popular nighttime soap operas like Beverly Hills, 90210 and Melrose Place. When both of those series ended, the network was lacking in this genre, which is pretty much non-existent on primetime television today. Then in the summer of 2003 everything changed. A soap opera drama set in Orange County California debuted on the network in August of 2003 and gradually became one the hottest new series of the 2003-2004 television season. That show was The O.C., and it kick-started the careers of Adam Brody, Rachel Bilson, and Benjamin McKenzie. The drama would last for four glorious seasons and would come to a conclusion in February 2007. Here is a list of ten things that you may not know about The O.C. We hope some, if not all, of these facts will surprise you about this series created by Josh Schwartz. 1. No Julie or Summer When The O.C. was in an… »

Gotham episode 16 review: The Blind Fortune Teller

18 February 2015 11:45 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Gotham's central investigation was well-written this week, it's a shame the same can't be said about its female characters...

This review contains spoilers.

1.16 The Blind Fortune Teller

Holy flying douchebags, Batman! This week we were treated to a deep delve into the lore of the caped crusader with new villains teased, iconic locations visited and a neat fan service nod to the son of John Grayson.

Also pleasing this week were some hints of upcoming plot advancements. Seeing as Gotham is a show that has an ongoing obsession with mysteries and unresolved questions, it was refreshing to take these baby steps towards the truth after a long stint of inactivity. ‘Who killed Bruce Wayne’s parents?’, ‘will we ever find out about the shady Arkham project?’ and ‘was that comedian in episode one really the Joker?’ are three unresolved questions which fans have been pondering for some time, and »

Harvey Dent And The Dollmaker Arrive In New Gotham Images

17 February 2015 7:18 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

See Full Gallery Here

A batch of new images from Gotham‘s strangely-titled upcoming episode, “Everyone Has A Cobblepot,” have appeared online, showing the return of young Assistant District Attorney Harvey Dent – played by Masters of Sex alum Nicholas D’Agosto – and the debut of the creepy serial killer known as the Dollmaker.

The Borgias and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 actor Colm Feore was cast as the Dollmaker (or in this case, Dr. Dulmacher) late last month, and based on the episode’s synopsis, he’s the one behind the creepy organ donation ring that Fish Mooney was recently caught up in, which makes sense considering he was attached to child smuggling earlier in the season as well.

Check out the new Gotham episode synopsis below, and be sure to tune in when “Everyone Has a Cobblepot” airs on March 2nd, 2015.

'Gotham': The Joker May Not Fully Appear for 7 or 8 Years

17 February 2015 9:12 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

As Gotham Season 1 enters it's third act, rushing towards a season finale, the popular Fox series has decided to introduce the first seeds of the much anticipated Joker storyline. The Joker is unarguably the biggest, baddest, most iconic villain Batman has ever faced. And while we got to see glimpses of this character starting to take shape in last night's episode The Blind Fortune Teller, executive producer Bruno Heller has refused to confirm that the new character Jerome (Cameron Monaghan) is in fact the future Clown Prince. Now, in a new interview with E! Online, Bruno Heller teases that it may take another 7 or 8 years before the full-fledged Joker persona makes its appearance on Gotham.

Many believe Jerome is the Joker due to the maniacal laughing fit he broke into after admitting to Gordon that he was the one responsible for killing his own mother in last night's The Blind Fortune Teller episode. »

After the first trailer for tonight's episode of Gotham teased our first look at the iconic Batman villain The Joker, Fox has debuted new promo art for "The Blind Fortune Teller", airing at 8 Pm Et. Despite the obvious nod to The Joker in last week's trailer, series creator Bruno Heller wouldn't confirm if this is actually The Joker or not. All we know until tonight's episode airs is that this character featured below is named Jerome, played by Cameron Monaghan.

"The Blind Fortune Teller" follows Gordon (Ben McKenzie) as he takes Dr. Leslie Thompkins (guest star Morena Baccarin) to the circus, but the day turns quickly when the circus comes under attack. Then, Falcone (John Doman) enlists Butch Gilzean (Drew Powell) to help Penguin (Robin Taylor) with the night club, while Fish Mooney (Jada Pinkett Smith) is otherwise occupied.

Ben McKenzie: I Will "Totally" Play a Zombie on The Walking Dead

15 February 2015 6:30 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Fun fact for Southland fans: Even though the TV cop drama died off long ago (and too soon), Ben McKenzie and Michael Cudlitz have remained very close friends. "[Ben's] a really good guy, very talented and I'll work with him again," Cudlitz, who plays Abraham, told me of his former Southland partner. His idea?  For him to play a villain on Gotham, and for Ben to come on The Walking Dead and play a walker, just a brief cameo in the background. Ryan Atwood as a zombie? Yes, please!
