Critic reviews for Mad City: Follow the White Rabbit

The episode's ending... was surprisingly, impressively low-key dark for a show like Gotham. My reaction, in short: "Whoa."

Luckily for fans, Tetch is perhaps the strongest new villain to hit the show since Hugo Strange arrived on the scene in mid-season 2.

Speaking of love, I also applaud the show for making the Penguin/Riddler relationship be much more than a tease. Even if it is just one-sided right now.

"Follow the White Rabbit" was a significant step forward in the Gordon/Tetch rivalry making for another highly engaging episode.
