Joker, Gotham, Gotham Season 2

Trailer Time: Gotham Season 2 “The Villains Want Mass Panic”

I recently binge-watched my way through Gotham Season One.  There’s a lot about it I loved, but it was frustratingly uneven.  Robin Lord Taylor’s Penguin may be the best live-action adaptation of the character and Ben McKenzie and Donal Logue are great as Gordon and Bullock.  However, I thought Jada Pinkett-Smith’s character was irritating and there were a lot of episodes that skated along the average mark.

The second season has promised the villains will be unleashed, and if we get more Jerome/Joker then that’s fantastic.  The best moment of the entire season was his revelation in the interview room.   Also joining the GCPD will be Michael Chiklis as Capt. Nathaniel Barnes. Gotham is back September 21, 2015 at 8 p.m. on FOX.

One thought on “Trailer Time: Gotham Season 2 “The Villains Want Mass Panic””

  1. As far as I’m concerned Penguin is the actual hero of this series. When he yelled “I am the king of Gotham!” I was cheering. I know how wrong that is, but so far RLT’s version is one of the greatest villains of all time.

    Loved the Joker when the big reveal happened. Didn’t love knowing where he came from. That is kind of the problem with the series. So many of the elements are perfect. Gordon and Bullock, Alfred and Bruce, Edward Nigma, and oh my God Carol Kane. But the series isn’t integrating them into a prequel that shines an interesting light on the mythology. But I’m filled with so much anticipation. The series is getting better, and Fish Mooney is out of the picture, or at least they want us to believe she is for a while, so that leaves room for villains we know have futures. I am totally hopeful that Gotham will live up to its promise.
