FernGully here doing what I do best: watching TV shows and providing a moment by moment reaction. With Gotham starting up for season two, it was only appropriately start this new editorial series with the DC branded Fox Show.

Gotham premiers a new episode every Monday at 8EST/7CST.

Be advised that this recap is a moment-by-moment recap as I was watching the program. Spoilers Below!


I love this show, so having season two start up was something of an event for me.

1 minute in: they’ve found what I assume to be the bat cave. I screamed a little inside honestly.

1.5 minutes in: oh crap… The penguin is not playing around. I love this show!

2 minutes in: oh shit, Barbara Keen is in Arkham Asylum. Oh shit. She’s looking at the Joker. Oh it’s on!

3 minutes in: yes! Kick some ass Gordon!

5 minutes in: oh crap Nygma is talking to himself. I enjoy this version of the character. He has a complexity that Jim Carrey couldn’t show.

6 minutes in: I hate Commissioner Loeb. He’s such a douche. I always admire that Chief has Gordon’s back. It’s nice to see that in all the corruption that’s around, there are some good cops in Gotham. Wait Detective is gone!? No!

Within 7 minutes of the show and I’m already gearing up for what they have in store. The thing I know I’ll miss is Fish Mooney. She was such a great character.

10 minutes in: why does there always have to be a sexy scene between attractive people? Why can’t they be in sweat pants and watching Gotham’s Most Wanted or something?

11 minutes in: Omg! She has a prison dress. That’s awesome. It’s even tight-fitting with a lovely heart cut top. Quite lovely for Barbara. The Joker is making me uncomfortable (probably because I hate clowns).

Barbara is fucking nuts! I love it. You know who she reminds me of? Michelle Pheifer’s Selena Kyle. That twisted mentality but there’s a vulnerability attached.

14 minutes in: Cobblepot! He’s a mob boss now? Damn. A lot has happened. Oh shit. Gordon is working with Penguin. This will be terrible, yet awesome.

Selena is working for Penguin? Very Batman Returns. I like that the penguin is one step ahead of Gordon concerning what he wants. I feel bad that he has to go to Cobblepot for assistance, but damn. And of course Penguin asks for “a favor” in return. This won’t be good.

Second commercial break: the show always feels like there is context missing for someone who doesn’t know the canon involved. But there is a certain nuance that comes with being able to create your own alternate universe using the same characters. Gordon is using the darker parts of his connections and it’s either going to bite him in the ass or… Bite him in the ass.

21 minutes in: oh shit, he’s a bartender now? Eh, whatever pays the bills. At least he is still on the show. He’s a good actor.

22 minutes in: hahaha. They’ve been trying to get into the bat cave. Gordon really admires Bruce and Alfred it seems. You know their relationship will eventually be strong in the future, but Bruce is aware of the balance that comes with “the greater good.”

“Surely, the right way is sometimes the ugly way.” what an awesome line coming from a young boy.

Oh snap! I love seeing that fireplace open! Bruce is determined to unlock the hidden room. And he does so buy smashing a hammer. Lovely.

25 minutes in: Barbara is really determined to be crazy. I never liked her, I’m sorry. This version of her is nuts. And not in a redeeming way like some other characters.

27 minutes in: Gordon is doing dirty. It’s kind of a turn on. I am enjoying this bad boy Jim we have here. He’s not playing games because he needs to get shit done. It’s sad to see, but you want to see more of it. It’s weird seeing Gordon being chased by cops instead of chasing criminals. The tables have turned.
