Critic reviews for Mad City: The Gentle Art of Making Enemies

A lot of this plot-jumping has to occur to get Eddie and Oswald to that gray, cloudy dock-with some fun character moments from Barbara, because Erin Richards is this show's secret MVP.

Fans of the Joker (and, seriously, who isn't?) should have a blast this week, between the blatant visual and narrative callbacks to his appearances in everything from the comics to The Dark Knight.

This episode had a little bit of everything and it was done masterfully. Between Bruce facing off with Jerome and Ed confronting Penguin, it was hard to choose the standout moment. And that's hardly a problem.

After tonight's generally fun, action-packed episode of Fox's "Gotham," the real reason the show has never come together is clear. In short, it was never a Batman show before now.

The irony of all of this development is that the future of Gotham ultimately can't be seen on Gotham, simply by nature of what the series is. That doesn't mean we can't enjoy the hell out of it, though.

I'm happy to report that the chaos promised in last week's stirring final shot is in full form in Gotham's winter finale.
