Gotham

 

The dark Gothic gloom of Gotham City is about to get darker so break out that spotlight and have some Villainous fun.

7 minute rehash of season 1

 

This season will be divided into 2- 11 episode halves.They are aiming for a grander saga type construction in which  they can sit and get to understand their motives and how the turbulence of their lives affects the landscape. It’s the Morgue the merrier with a new slew of voracious villains joins the rising mosh of season 2.  (minus a few down)

5-reasons-to-watch-gotham-season-2

 

Now before we start ‘to watch’ get a drink ready as I’ve come across

The season 2 Drinking Game!

Season 2 Episode 1 Rise of the Villains:Damned if you Do

Gordon no longer seems to be president of the PAL (I think that’s what it was when we ended last season)

His former partner is now a bartender, and Gordo for some reason is a traffic cop.

While directing traffic he sees   ‘Vaardo or is it Zaardo’   is toting a couple of rifles and shooting them off.  So he goes to apprehend him, meanwhile his relief or new partner comes along late and so Gordo goes postal on the fellow for being late and so Gordo gets canned by the crooked commish.

Jim’s ex-girlfriend  Barbara (Erin Richards)  is in Arkham and we can see she is going to be Queen B (no puns intended) there. I saw something that said she may become the joker, but I think that’s the creepy red head guy.

Oswald ‘the Penguin’ Cobblepot is now the King of Gotham, or so sees himself as. One person that should be in Arkham that’s not, is that sadistic bald head guy (Victor?) of Falcone’s now under Penguins regime. Gotta love him on a demented funny level.

A deal with Penguin to get his job back, and oh I think I’d have to say the Penguin is my fave Villain (come manipulate a few people for me).  The Commish ends up retiring and could this be the time when Gordo becomes Commish? Ugh No please not James Frain AGAIN! Please someone call the cops & help me file a stalking report! (see my Staunking post) Don’t tell me this prick Theo Galavan gets to play next commish?  Oh good suspicion wrong.. but just as I thought that he breaks out the baddies and plays their leader. Is he going to be the Scarecrow? There was a part that made me think so, however I have read he is a newly created character.

Well I was right, Queen Barb she is. Wait How did nail polish get into the asylum? and WHY did they let her have it?

Now on to young Bruce, who is trying his hardest to get into pop’s secret ‘not the bat cave’ and when Gordon shows up to apologize because he won’t be able to keep his promise because he was sacked… shows wisdom beyond his years.  That sometimes you have to do a bad thing in order to do good,  or as the exact quote goes:

“Surely sometimes the right way is also the ugly way”

So what’s skeleton’s are in the elder Wayne’s closet?  You’ll have to watch for yourself! I will tell you there is nothing batty about it

The psycho lunatic band of baddies that escaped Arkham have upstaged the rest of the cast and run amuck of  debauchery throughout Gotham. One in which is Jerome Valeska played by Cameron Monaghan whose fiendish basket case with the wicked cackle, and demented grin, and infamous delusions just add up to if not a winner, then at least amassing many awards noms (one of which will be this year’s Avatar Awards). With this portrayal of what may be the Joker in Gotham, i’m wondering what Jared Leto’s joker in the Suicide Squad movie will be like. I hear it’s really crazy but, I’m thinking I or I should say the Avatar Awards  may have a battle of the Jokers category next year!

Love the mayhem and carnage  one of which comes at the expense of a bus full of cheerleaders, which when I saw this I couldn’t help but laugh.  However in the wake of the Arkham menaces our would be ‘Riddler’, Edward Nygma seems forgotten. Why not unfurl the riddler to his full glory and unleash the fun (and funny?) the character would bring? Cory Michael Smith’s forensic tech who unleashed some demons upon an abusive cop and fellow co-worker’s boyfriend last season.

His id has exploded, with a cracked  mind and 2 personalities loudly competing

I’ve enjoyed the first few episodes of this season. Last season was just slow burn while this year well the gates have been torn open (by our villains) and its outta the gate. The storylines seem a bit more interesting and we  have to look forward to at least a couple of the villains starting to come of age  (Riddle and maybe a joker!)

Don’t Get The new Captain angry he’ll turn all rocky and orange and want to smash things. Michael Chiklis plays the new  Captain of the GCPD. He wants to run things in a straight line, even firing most if not all the current cops in the precinct!

He won’t take any of the back alley B.S. they’ve been doing, no matter how small a window that is broken, they are to bring the vandal in. Why because it leads to bigger windows being broken, which leads to graffiti, shoplifting & then killing. In other words if it goes unpunished, and you had the chance to, then anything that follows the criminal does is the would be arresting officers ‘ fault.

Spoilers…?
