Super Recaps: Gotham (Episode 6)

G0

We’re back with another Gotham recap!  In the last episode, we got lots of set up for the inevitable mob war between the Falcone family and the up and coming Maroni family.  Now it’s time to pay off all those stories that the last episode spent building up!  Oh no wait, we’ve got to do an episode about Bullock.  Sigh… okay then.

The episode begins with a creepy bald man putting on a lucha lebre mask.  I doubt it’s Bane though because the guy is kind of scrawny, and he calls himself The Spirit of the Goat.

“Would you fuck me?  I’d fuck me.”

Super Recaps: Gotham (Episode 5)

Once again we find ourselves with another episode of Captain Boring’s Adventures in Crime City.  So the last episode was a bit of a disappointment when compared to previous episodes which have steadily increased in quality.  So was episode four the beginning of the end for this series having any hope of quality, or will this episode make up for what we saw last time?  There’s only one way to find out, and that’s to keep on reading!!

The episode begins with Bruce who is in desperate need of a hobby.

“Yes!  All I need is some red string and that’ll PROVE that the CIA shot Tupac!”

Super Recaps: Gotham (Episode 4)

Gotham has been on a steady rise since it’s started, but it’s frankly taking way too long to get to what I’d consider “good” instead of “passable” or “mediocre.”  Will episode 4 be the one to ramp up the quality so that I can actually enjoy this show instead of just waiting for Penguin to show up?  Yeah… I doubt it too.  Still, there’s only one way to find out and that’s to keep on reading!!

The episode begins where the last one left off, with Gordon just about to crap his pants.  At least I think he is.  Gordon’s acting is just as non-expressive as ever, so it’s hard to tell.

“I’m so surprised right now.”

Super Recaps: Sailor Moon Crystal (Episode 10)

Another two weeks, another episode of Sailor Moon Crystal!  It’s been rough for the last few episodes, but the last one ended on such a high note that I couldn’t wait to see this one!  Does this one continue to push the series in a positive direction, or will it fall back on old habits that have made the show less enjoyable at times?  There’s only one way to find out, and that’s to keep on reading!!

The episode begins just as the last one ended where Luna is proposing a trip to the moon.  They can’t go until the full moon though, so the gang is preparing for their trip to outer space.

Don’t try to make sense of this.  It’s only going to confuse the audience.

Super Recaps: Gotham (Episode 3)

So here we are again, watching another episode of The Adventures of Not Batman.  Now last episode DID have a bit more going for it than the pilot, so maybe that trend will continue with this episode.  Will the show one day be good enough to be called “Okay?”  There’s only one way to find out and that’s to keep on reading!!

Super Recaps: Gotham (Episode 2)

We’re back with another recap of Gotham!  I wasn’t a big fan of the pilot, mostly because it was never clear what kind of show it wanted to be.  Did it want to be a comic book show, or a cop drama?  It’s not even like it was trying to be a mix of the two, rather it kept flipping back and forth in a way that made the tone incomprehensible and just ended up sapping almost any enjoyment I could get from it.  That, and the guy playing Gordon acts like a giant piece of Bologna.  All that said, can the show improve upon the pilot?  Let’s find out!!
