Arrow - "Corto Maltese"

Arrow – “Corto Maltese” Review

All about Thea. As Oliver’s little sister, and probably the love of Roy’s life, it’s not surprising that the two would both head off to Corto Maltese to make sure Thea is alright and attempt to smooth things over. It was nice seeing Thea welcome Oliver with a hug rather than be bitter. He is…

Gotham - "Viper"

Gotham – “Viper” Review

“Don’t Vex me, mortal.” Let’s be honest, I don’t feel much sympathy for anyone who decides that sniffing the random green substance just because it says to. I mean, seriously, that’s not smart. In any universe. So when he became some sort of crazed lunatic that guzzles milk and can carry ATM machines, while spouting…

Arrow - "Sara"

Arrow – “Sara” Review

Sara is really gone and somehow Laurel managed to carry her dead body all the way back to Oliver’s lair. If that wasn’t a show of strength that she was on her way to become Black Canary, then I’m ready to see the real first indication. The real focus of the episode is actually Sara…

Gotham - "Arkham"

Gotham – “Arkham” Review

The Penguin just doesn’t listen. Cobblepot was told to not come back to Gotham. So of course he never even left the city, claiming he had no where else to go. He’s been making his way around the city, killing people again and again. Now when Cobblepot actually didn’t do the killing, he made it…

Gotham - "The Balloonman"

Gotham – “The Balloonman” Review

One of the best things about Gotham is the image that it so successfully sets of the image of the city. There is a gritty, dirty city feel that exudes from the streets of Gotham. Whether it’s the people moving through the streets or the smoke rising from the buildings it feels like it comes…

Gotham - "Selina Kyle"

Gotham – “Selina Kyle” Review

Despite the title of the episode being “Selina Kyle”, we didn’t actually get that much with the young catwoman. Instead we dealt with a plot involving street kids being abducted for the dollmaker by a pair of creepy adults. Sure, the adults didn’t look all that threatening, but they were most certainly the dangerous sort…

Gotham - "Pilot"

Gotham – “Pilot” Review

Gotham succeeded within moments of portraying the gritty city that is Gotham. It is a place where criminals will kill victims in front of children. Where cops have no qualms with shooting a criminal if things even get slightly out of hand. The place is dirty and cops are willing to look the other way…
