It’s Gotham Tonight! Tom and Adam are dropping some insight bombs on Episode 7: Penguin’s Umbrella.
Appetizer: We draw some comparisons between a casting call for a new documentary and the plight of Jim Gordon.
Why this episode worked:
- Is there any doubt this season is all about the Penguin?
- Victor Zsaz busts up the Gotham PD!
- Gordon and Bullock provide us with a “nothing to lose” moment.
- A smart ending. Who’s double-crossing who?
Things we could have lived without:
- Just as we feared. Barbara becomes the damsel in distress.
- Gordon’s trip to Wayne Manor doesn’t make any sense.
- Bullock’s uncharacteristic moves.
