Weighing in on Zoom aka Hunter Zololomon’s latest kill, Flash showrunner Andrew Kreisberg says it was simply a case of a doppelganger proving to be redundant. Meaning, Hunter iced Killer Frost because he now has “Jay Garrick’s” actual romantic interest, Earth-One’s Caitlin Snow, in his clutches.

Review: 'Horace and Pete' concludes as one of the very best dramas you'll see
(This column starts off talking about Horace and Pete in relatively general terms, for the benefit of the people who still haven't watched but are curious about sampling it. I'll get to spoilers for the finale midway through, with another warning before that.) Horace and Pete, Louis C.K.'s drama about a Brooklyn bar that's been run by the same family for 100 years, came to an end over the weekend, with even less fanfare than it had on arrival. News of the first episode simply appeared in the inboxes of people on the LouisCK.net email list that just said "Go here to watch it. We hope you like it." Saturday morning, the email read, "I have nothing clever to say. But I would like you very much to know that episode 10 of Horace and Pete is ready right here." That this was going to be the final episode

Gotham season 2 episode 12 review: Mr. Freeze

It’s ice to meet Nathan Darrow’s Mr. Freeze, but the overcrowded-ness of this mid-season premiere means he’s given short shrift…

This review contains spoilers

2.12 Mr Freeze

Holy lengthy absence, Batman! After a mid-season break of three full months, Gotham season 2 has finally returned to our screens. It’s been so long that it could almost feel like the start of a new season rather than a continuation. That is, if it wasn’t for the eight and a half minutes of recapping that took place at the start of the episode.

The montage of all the villains we’ve already met felt a tad unnecessary, as did the not-yet-followed-up-on scene in which Tabitha and Butch formed an alliance, reminded us that Theo Galavan is dead, and clinked metal things saucily. I can’t help feeling that Jim’s flashback-heavy questioning session with Harvey Dent

Gotham season 2 episode 11 review: Worse Than A Crime

Gotham's mid-season finale was a little lacking in excitement, but gave us some hefty teases of things to come…

Holy mid-season finale, Batman! To get straight to the point – this week’s Gotham episode wasn’t one of my favourites. I’m not trying to slam the series on the whole (indeed, I’ve been enjoying it for the most part), but Worse Than A Crime lacked a certain pizzazz, in my eyes.

It’s difficult to put a finger on exactly why it didn’t ignite my interest, but I guess I just wanted a little bit more excitement after ten episodes of build-up. Finally, the showdown between Bruce Wayne and The Order Of Saint Dumas (TOoSD) has come to pass, but, in terms of actual action and violence, it didn’t amount to much.

Despite Bruce’s stellar Batman-like behaviour last week, Worse

Gotham, Ep. 2.11, “Worse Than A Crime”

Gotham, Season 2, Episode 11, “Worse Than A Crime”

Written by Bruno Heller

Directed by Jeffrey Hunt

Airs Mondays at 8pm (Et) on Fox

The midseason finale closes off the Galavan arc with a bang and kicks the doors wide open for a second half of season two that will take the Rise of the Villains to the next level. The season has been building up to Galavan and his family getting their revenge on Gotham City through the ritual killing of Bruce Wayne, bringing us this week to a fatal showdown between Galavan and a motley crew of police detectives, a crime kingpin, a military trained butler, and a street smart cat burglar, all of whom come to Wayne’s rescue. It’s like watching a western, where a group of lawless rogues unite forces against one common enemy, Theo Galavan.

Gotham season 2 episode 10 review: The Son Of Gotham

This week’s Gotham had some great fight scenes, big plot advancements and Batman-like behaviour…

This review contains spoilers.

2.10 The Son Of Gotham

Holy spicy mustard, Batman! If you’re ever in a heated pub discussion with someone who thinks Gotham is more of a police procedural than a Batman prequel, this is the episode to mention when you’re ready to unpick their argument.

Indeed, The Son Of Gotham had heaps of references to DC history. This stellar episode really embraced the visual and storytelling lore of the comics, taking familiar motifs and using them in in some engaging ways.

The Order Of Saint Dumas (TOoSD) arrived with a bang this week, making an immediate impression in that short pre-title-card mugging scene. And here was us thinking that it’d be years before Gotham showed us a darkly dressed figure apprehending a street criminal and disappearing from sight.

Gotham season 2 episode 9 review: A Bitter Pill To Swallow

This week’s Gotham made up for some dodgy fight scenes with some winning dialogue exhanges…

This review contains spoilers.

2.9 A Bitter Pill To Swallow

Holy climactic cannibal, Batman! This week’s episode of Gotham got a lot of things right, particularly by spending time with its characters rather than rushing from one set piece to the next.

Mixing up the formula a bit, A Bitter Pill To Swallow saw Gotham’s trademarked shoot-out scene brought forward to the middle the episode. This structural shift allowed for dialogue-driven scenes to flow at their own pace on either side of the action, rather than having to ratchet up to a conclusion as you’d usually expect.

Particularly welcome were the moments where Gotham took its time to examine its protagonist’s mental state. After all, there’s often so much going on that Ben McKenzie’s Jim Gordon

Thrills, unpredictability and moral dilemmas abound in this excellent episode of Gotham season 2...

This review contains spoilers.

2.8 Tonight's The Night

Holy shotgun wedding, Batman! Tonight’s The Night marks one of Gotham’s best episodes to date. Only the mob war episodes at the end of last year and the Jerome trilogy at the start of this season have had a similar level of thrills and unpredictability.

Episodes that hinge on villains needing to kill some time are rarely inspiring instalments of comic book TV shows, but Galavan’s desire to distract Jim this week reaped some seriously impressive results. Galavan sent Barbara to waylay the morally murky detective, enabling Jim’s former fiancée to enact her wedding fantasy that opened the episode in such unsettling style.

By the end of the episode, this fantasy had become reality. But before we rush into that, it’s worth

Gotham season 2 episode 7 review: Mommy's Little Monster

This week’s Gotham featured an army of Penguin lookalikes, but not much else to demand our attention…

This review contains spoilers.

2.7 Mommy's Little Monster

Holy handy vending machine, Batman! This week’s Gotham escalated fairly quickly, didn’t it? Within forty-five minutes of the Galavans killing Oswald’s mum, things had developed into a full-blown public shootout featuring plenty of death.

The only problem is this: we’ve seen shoot-outs countless times in Gotham already. Each new iteration of this people-shooting-each-other staple scene needs a truly stand-out hook if it’s going to lodge itself in our memories for long.

Mommy’s Little Monster’s attempted Usp was the huddle of Penguin lookalikes that swarmed the locale to hide Oswald among the crowd. But while this was a nice visual flourish, it wasn’t quite enough to make this episode all that remarkable. The multiple Oswalds were introduced,

Gotham season 2 episode 6 review: By Fire

With more twists and turns than the average midseason finale, this week’s Gotham was one of the best yet…

This review contains spoilers.

2.6 By Fire

Holy cliff-hanger, Batman! Despite being placed as the sixth episode of the season, By Fire felt like a midseason finale. That’s mainly because of the whopping revelation at the end; that Wayne Enterprises are in the business of experimenting on ‘monsters.’ Crikey. How’s that for a shock?

We’ve always known that Wayne Enterprises were up to something dodgy, but a bit of insider dealing or black market arms trading or funding a few gangsters is all many might have expected. Deciding to bring them into the ‘testing’ of enhanced people sets them up as a potential equivalent to other evil comic book companies and a genuine overarching adversary for the show going forward.

In the same way that

Penguin is back at centre stage in this week’s filler-ish Gotham, which reminds us how just brilliant Robin Lord Taylor is as Penguin...

This review contains spoilers.

2.4 Strike Force

Ladies, gentlemen, others – let us discuss this episode! With the opening salvo of interconnected instalments Damned If You Do, Knock Knock and The Last Laugh all wrapped up, there’s a sense that we’re back to Gotham’s status quo with Strike Force.

Penguin was attempting to maintain control, Jim was trying to clean up the Gcpd, Bullock was being a cynic, and Bruce went back to school after his near death experience last week. It was business as usual. We even had a shootout involving Jim and Victor Zsasz, just like old times.

Of course, not every episode can be one of theatrics and dramatic rug-pull death scenes. Some of them are just connective tissue – gradually eking out character arcs,

Gotham season 2: Paul "Pee-wee Herman" Reubens cast as Oswald’s father

Reprising his role from Batman Returns, Paul Reubens will play the Penguin’s father in Gotham season 2…

Here’s an unlikely one.

Do you remember the brief scene where Paul Reubens – better known as the comedian Pee-wee Herman – played the Penguin’s father in Tim Burton’s Batman Returns?

If you don’t, you can watch it here…

Here’s the good part – Mr Reubens will play the same role in Gotham season 2. The news was broken at New York Comic Con, where Oswald Cobblepot actor Robin Lord Taylor exclaimed "Pee-wee Herman is playing my dad! What the hell? Oh, my God!”

This news is brilliant on several levels. Not only does Reubens seem like a perfect for the role, but this is also a massive tip of the cap to Tim Burton’s Bat-movies. At times, you can see their gothic stylistic influence on the show,

Gotham season 2 episode 3 review: The Last Laugh

The Last Laugh is Gotham’s best episode yet, with a great script and some hefty shocks…

This review contains spoilers.

2.3 The Last Laugh

The Last Laugh promised us a lot. As the third part of the ‘Rise Of The Villains’ trilogy that has started season two, it had the small task of following two of the best Gotham episodes ever. Also, we were promised a magician several times.

And, boy oh boy, that promise was fulfilled. By putting Cameron Monaghan at centre stage and giving him a truly theatrical and twisted scheme to enact, writer John Stephens has crafted Gotham’s best episode yet. As the scribe who also penned my least favourite episode ever, The Balloonman, that’s quite a turnaround.

The set-up for this episode was simple enough: Jim is on the hunt for Jerome, but by rejecting a social invitation from Leigh, he actually nearly misses his next attention-seeking criminal activity.

Cameron Monaghan gets even more Joker-y in this clip from Gotham season 2's The Last Laugh...

He's quick becoming our favourite thing about Gotham, and he's only appeared in three episodes so far. We're talking, of course, about Cameron Monaghan's potential proto-Joker Jerome. 

A clip from season 2 episode 3, The Last Laugh, has popped up online. It showcases Jerome at his cackling, intimidating best, as he has a little chat with his neglectful father (last seen in season 1's The Blind Fortune-Teller).

This review contains spoilers.

2.2 Knock, Knock

Holy school bus petrol bomb, Batman! This week’s Gotham is one of the show’s best episodes yet. We’ve been encouraged to think of these opening three episodes of season two as a trilogy, and with that in mind Knock, Knock makes for a stellar second act.

Once again stealing the show is Cameron Monaghan’s proto-Joker, Jerome. He’s now incredibly comfortable in the role and continues to impress with every return that he makes. Although the rest of the Maniax – save for Barbara – are irritatingly underdeveloped, Monaghan has stepped into the unhinged ringleader role with some real gusto.

His performance this week – particularly that piece to camera at the end – really was Joker-worthy. He echoed Mark Hamill’s vocal dexterity throughout, and his ‘you

Coco Rocha Slams Haters Who Criticized Her for Bottle-Feeding Daughter Ioni: ''This Is Not a Democracy''

Damned if you do, damned if you don't.  Coco Rocha took to Instagram on Monday to fight back against the haters who felt the need to criticize the new mom for bottle-feeding daughter Ioni.  "Getting a lot of unwanted advice based on my last post. Not that this is anyone's business - I loved breastfeeding Ioni for the first 5 months of her life and then one day my milk went dry," she revealed, sharing a photo of her baby girl, whom she welcomed in March. "It happens to every mom at different times. She's been on formula for a few weeks now and seems to be doing just fine. In the last 4 weeks she gained another 2 pounds, grew another inch and is in the 90th percentile for her...
