Gotham, Ep. 1.05, “Viper” bends credibility almost to its breaking point

18 hours ago | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Gotham, Season 1, Episode 5, “Viper”

Written by Rebecca Perry Cutter

Directed by Tim Hunter

Airs Mondays at 8pm Et on Fox

Gotham has done fairly well, so far, at integrating its cases of the week with its overarching storyline, with last week’s “Arkham” being one of the most momentous episodes yet in moving the season narrative forward, but with “Viper”, the tandem plots fail to blend together with the same consistency. The campy concept of the Viper drug, which gives super strength to its victims before destroying their bone density, could’ve worked if only the writers had decided not to display the victims’ feats of strength with such poorly executed and cartoonish special effects. What Gotham has done well in previous episodes is present a campy idea with a truly gritty noir tone, but the way that these super powered victims are realized, they look more like they belong »

Gotham episode 5 review: Viper

21 hours ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

There’s plenty of future teases and neat plot advancements in this week’s Gotham. Here’s Rob’s review of Viper…

This review contains spoilers.

1.5 Viper

Utilising Gotham’s continuing ability to show signs of trouble one week and huge heaps of potential the next, Viper was an episode with lots to enjoy. It was certainly a huge advancement and a welcome change from the central-plot-lite and real-estate-heavy Arkham of last week.

Impressing us again was Salvatore Maroni, played with poker-faced menace by David Zayas. While Falcone has seemed a bit distant throughout, Gotham’s second-highest-ranking mob boss truly ramped up the fear-inducing/genuinely threatening stakes this week. His dialogue is calm and collected, but his actions explain why so many fear him. It’s certainly a strong supporting performance from the Dexter, Grimm and The Expendables alumnus.

For a world of brutal gangs, Maroni’s blasé request for »

Donal Logue Talks Gotham, the Rumors He Was Going to Play Jim Gordon, What Drew Him to the Role, the Possibility of a Terriers Reunion, and More

20 October 2014 4:02 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Last week at New York Comic-Con, I was able to participate in a roundtable interview with Donal Logue for Gotham.  At the center of the show is Ben McKenzie as a young Detective Jim Gordon, who comes onto the force to work with veteran Harvey Bullock, played by Donal Logue.  The main antagonists that emerge are Jada Pinkett Smith as an original character, Fish Mooney, and Robin Lord Taylor as Oswald Cobblepott, the man who becomes the Penguin.  Balancing out the cast are Erin Richards as Gordon’s mysterious fiancée Barbara Kean, David Mazouz as Bruce Wayne, Camren Bicondova as Selina Kyle, and Sean Pertwee as Alfred Pennyworth.  While all shows take a bit of time to find a rhythm that works, Gotham is loaded with a talented cast and has The Mentalist and Rome alum Bruno Heller as the executive producer/writer, so I’m rooting for it.

Once Upon a Time: Devious Maids Fave to Snow the Snow Queen?

16 October 2014 4:53 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Rebecca Wisocky — who on Devious Maids steals scenes as acid-tongued lady of leisure Evelyn Powell — is poised to cheat people out of a li’l something on ABC’s Once Upon a Time.

TVLine has learned that Wisocky will appear in this season’s 10th episode as Madam Faustina, a charlatan who, in flashbacks, pretends to commune with spirits in order to swindle her customers by telling them made-up fortunes. Said “seer” exhibits a gentle, compassionate manner, but that is only an act designed to conceal her tough, unscrupulous nature from her marks.

Gotham, Ep. 1.04, “Arkham” lays the groundwork for new inciting development

14 October 2014 4:45 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Gotham Season 1, Episode 4, “Arkham”

Written by Ken Woodruff

Directed by T.J. Scott

Airs Mondays at 8pm Et on Fox

“Arkham” picks up right where we left off last week with Oswald Cobblepot at Jim Gordon’s front door, which had potential for an explosive outcome. Although not as incendiary as one might have thought, “Arkham” does pull all the subplots of the previous episodes together and sheds some light on the significance Arkham will have in this series. Gotham has done very well integrating its case of the week stories with the overarching plot in the past but now it’s brought the war between Carmine Falcone and Sal Maroni to the forefront and this gives viewers a look at the key players and their motives.

In “Arkham”, we learn the history of the Arkham district and why it’s of value to the two crime bosses. The Waynes’ foundation »

Robin Lord Taylor and Cory Michael Smith Talk Gotham, Playing The Penguin and The Riddler, the Audition Process, and More

13 October 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

From executive producer/writer Bruno Heller (The Mentalist, Rome), Gotham is the origin story for a number of the characters in the Batman universe, including Catwoman, The Penguin, The Riddler and Poison Ivy, as it shows what made them the formidable adversaries that they will eventually become.  At its core, it is the story of Detective James Gordon’s (Ben McKenzie) rise through a dangerously corrupt city teetering on the edge of evil, and it chronicles the birth of one of the most popular superheroes of our time. During this exclusive interview with Collider, co-stars Robin Lord Taylor (who gives a memorable break-out performance as Oswald Cobblepot, aka The Penguin) and Cory Michael Smith (Edward Nygma, aka The Riddler) talked about how they each came to this show, having to read a fake scene for their auditions, the anticipation and excitement they have in being a part of this show, »

Fox extends Gotham season order to 22 episodes

13 October 2014 10:33 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Fox is so happy with Batman prequel crime series Gotham, it's ordered a further 6 episodes...

Showing confidence in a strongly performing new show, Fox has extended the original season order for Gotham, taking the first run of the Batman prequel series from sixteen up to a full twenty-two episodes.

With a decent start ratings-wise in the Us, Gotham has proved itself Fox's frontrunning new addition for the autumn season, hence the push for additional instalments. Perhaps now they'll have enough room to write an episode where Jim Gordon pops along to the opticians one afternoon, where he decides his upper lip is getting chilly.

Written by The Mentalist's Bruno Heller and directed by CSI and The Tomorrow People's Danny CannonGotham airs its fourth episode in the Us, and its first in the UK, tonight, Monday the 13th of October.

The Mentalist: Season Seven Confirmed as Final Season

27 September 2014 6:35 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Get ready to say goodbye to Patrick Jane. The Mentailist is ending after seven seasons on CBS

Series co-star Tim Kang confirmed that the drama will be ending in a tweet that reads, "This is our 7th and final season. Looking at the scripts now, it's so fun and such a great season!"

When the show was renewed for season seven, it was suspected that this would be the final year. The series has grown more expensive over the years and the ratings aren't nearly as strong as they once were.

The Mentalist has been on the air since Fall 2008 and the seventh season is expected to begin airing sometime mid-season.

What do you think? Are you sorry that The Mentalist is ending or is the timing right?
