Victor Zsasz in this episode. They aren't leaving any characters for later. Another character who is suppose to be slightly older than Batman, not 25 years older.

who is the actor playing him? He looks familiar. Was he a bad guy on The Flash?

Ugh, penguin as a double agent. His plan went perfectly, too perfectly

He's going for super hero tv show type-casting.

Zsasz could be an interesting character.

Let me restate that. The Zsasz mythos is interesting in the books/games. On Gotham we'll have to wait and see.

Agreed. I was introduced to the character through the Arkham games and he was really intriguing. I still worry that the show is introducing characters too quickly.

Still watching and I'll admit it is growing on me. Still have complaints of course...

I think the pacing is off. It's been maybe 4-6 months since the Wayne's were murdered and we've already been introduced to 8 characters and now Harvey Dent next week. I think it's a fun take on Alfred to have him being a badass, but it's so early for Bruce to already be learning to fight. He's going to be the most powerful Batman every in 18 years. Lastly, the police department, one week they want to Gordon dead, the next week they have his back, Gordon is fixing things too fast.

Are you kidding me, Batman and Catwoman now live together?!

And introducing Harvey with him flipping a coin. *sigh
Oh, and he's extremely bi-polar

Caught up on this show up to this week. Need to watch tonight's yet. I've enjoyed it but I agree with you, it seems like they are introducing too many characters too fast.

Tonight's episode was not good. They need to turn this around quick. My Batman fandom is keeping me from quitting it but is also why I want to quit it

He doesn't like it because it's not true to the arcs he knows but that's also why he is interested in it.

Bingo. I have a small collection of Batman comics I've been reading through and learning more about the traditional story. Gotham is essentially throwing all continuity out the window and doing some pretty drastic things with the characters. I don't like these changes because they are hurting the story telling.

The dialogue between Selina and Bruce bothered me. The rest of the episode was ok. Next weeks looks like a cliff hanger

Watching the one from Monday. I love the not-so-subtle lighting on Harvey Dent's face, one side is almost always in shadow.

It's almost like he's two-faced...

I think my desire to play Far Cry 4 will be stronger than the chore of watching this show. I might skip tonight's episode and watch it later, but I am afraid if I do that I might never come back to this show.
