Arrow, Agents of SHIELD, The Flash, Gotham (and more superhero TV shows coming), added to the I'm-very-grateful-for-them chain of superhero movies over the last several years (and I haven't even mentioned the upcoming explosion of superhero video/PC games - oops, I just did!):

It's a good time to be a geek. Represent!

Gotham is still one of those shows I enjoy watching each week.

Spoiler for Hidden:
We did get to see Ivy Pepper again.

Tonight's episode was fun; Alfred got to be a bit of a badass.

In regards to the Wayne murder, and this is pure speculation on my part, but is anyone else starting to suspect...
Spoiler for Hidden:
...the Court of Owls? What the assassin said to Gordan, about how her employers were watching what he was trying to do and laughing, gave me pause. After all, isn't manipulating Gotham from the shadows sort of their schtick?

I loved how Selina is absolutely creeped out by Ivy.

I started to think that too.
Spoiler for Hidden:
Especially cause I think New 52 Bruce was about the same age when he went looking for the Court as a kid.

And at long last a new episode.

It was sort of amusing ... though ...
Spoiler for Hidden:
Even if Gordon HAD been shacking up with someone Barbara had no right to be upsdet about it giving that she was shacking up with someone else.

The relationship between Montoya and Barbara is the worst thing about this show so far.
When you insult someone by calling them a "pig" or a "dog" you aren't maligning pigs and dogs everywhere.  The same is true of any term used as an insult.

It COULD have been good, but the execution has been sorely lacking.

Frankly Barbara is the worst thing on the show.  I keep hoping that this character dies and he names his daughter in her memory...

Agreed.

Double-agreed.

Bruce, Bruce ...

Spoiler for Hidden:
He came across as a bit of a brat in this week's episode. If I had been Selina I would have probably done the same thing.

Interesting that we've not had mention of any counseling for Bruce, especially in light of the way Alfred treated Bruce over the broken snowglobe. I get it: a bit of tough love, pick yourself up and move on, do something positive. I don't know why it never struck me before (probably because no version of Batman that I recall has dwelt very long on Bruce's actual childhood), but the relationship between Bruce and Alfred seems...a bit odd, somehow. Yes, the Waynes set it up for Alfred to be Bruce's legal guardian if anything happened to them. But did they mean for Alfred to go on acting as a servant rather than taking on a parental role? I would think it's what a traumatized child actually needs, as opposing to a butler who treats him like a little prince in some ways -- Bruce obsesses over certain areas of expertise, becoming a Batman larvae, if you will, and Alfred lets it happen. Teaches him to fight. Pushes him to be tough.

Ah well, it's just comic book stuff, and the writers have to do something with Bruce and Alfred that will inevitably lead to the Caped Crusader. I thinks too much!

I'm pretty sure one of the first two episodes mentioned it and Alfred was declining as per the Wayne's instructions.

Seemed more like Selina being a brat to me, with the whole righteous indignation at the implication that living in an actual house  with decent food is better than living on the streets and being lucky to eat at all.  How dare he imply that better is better!  The nerve!

But she might have been acting like that on purpose, to keep him from getting mixed up in her problems.
When you insult someone by calling them a "pig" or a "dog" you aren't maligning pigs and dogs everywhere.  The same is true of any term used as an insult.

Loved the little interaction between Riddler and Penguin.

Yeah that was really well done.

Spoiler for Hidden:
Also, has anyone else gotten chills regarding the next episode? Specifically when a certain character starts laughing....

No chills, Joe.  It actually made me leery of the next episode.  I don't see them being able to introduce that character in a manner that doesn't leave a bad taste...

Spoiler for Hidden:
My guess is that they are only going to introduce him as the Red Hood and just let audiences assume from there.  It may be that he is the Red Hood who became the Joker.  But on the other hand in comic book continuity there were many Red Hoods before him.
