Gotham's final season isn't a complete and total trainwreck, nor does it ruin past seasons that came before, but it's a massive disappointment for a show that fully embraced how dark and ridiculous it was.
"Gotham" doesn't get enough respect. The Fox show isn't part of super-producer Greg Berlanti's Arrowverse...But while "Gotham," now in its fifth and final season, has always been separate, it has never been lesser.
"Year Zero" set the tone for where Gotham is going for their final season with a bang. There's no time for small henchmen or empty threats. Gotham City is at war and the villains/heroes are here to slay.
I love the show's sincere commitment to everything campy about the Caped Crusader. And there's something fully giallo about this final season, all these impeccably dressed cops in a broken city of masked horror.
There was plenty to digest on "Year One," but every moment of this jam-packed episode was a titillating preview of how everything will meld together before we say our final goodbye to television's greatest comic book series.
