Gotham (season 2)

{5/5} “I could have saved him. I saw him going down this path, becoming more and more obsessed. Why didn’t I do something?”

Gotham season 2, aired in 2015-16

Commissioner Loeb fires Jim Gordon from the GCPD. Jim’s former partner, Harvey Bullock, has resigned and is working as a bartender. Oswald Cobblepot has moved up in the world, and Gordon makes a deal with him. Several inmates at Arkham Asylum manage to escape, including Barbara Kean. Bruce Wayne came to believe that his father was hiding a secret, and he and Alfred find it — a tunnel behind the fireplace.

The first half of the season is subtitled Rise of the Villains. The first and second halves of the season were separated by a long break.

Watching Gotham is a bit like watching Mad Max: Fury Road — it’s pretty crazy.

The writing quality is maintained from season 1 — you won’t be able to stop watching.

The scenes between Bruce Wayne and Selena Kyle are delightful, as are the scenes between Ed Nygma and Oswald Cobblepot.

Stars Sean Pertwee, Robin Lord Taylor, and Cory Michael Smith.

Michael Chiklis joins the cast as Jim’s new boss. BD Wong shows up as Hugo Strange, the man in charge of Arkham Asylum.

I previously reviewed season 1.
