Critic reviews for Mad City: Smile Like You Mean It

"Smile Like You Mean It" in honor of the recent Presidential Inauguration, was completely stolen by David Mazouz, Camren Bicondova and returning guest star Cameron Monaghan.

"Smile Like You Mean It" brought Jerome back in a fun (and fairly icky) way... Felt pretty inspired, actually.

If the show continues to play with the imagery and tone of Batman stories past with next week's Winter Finale, it may actually leave us wanting more for the first time in...ever.

"Mad City: Smile Like You Mean It" was one of the best Gotham episodes aired recently.

Tonight's episode of Gotham reminded me how enjoyable this show can be when its respective storylines stick to what they're good at.

This is the best episode of Gotham this season by far, and I think a large part of that is due to the fact that the Jim/Lee drama is relegated to the backseat.
