Gotham: Prisoners
March 28, 2016 7:15 PM - Season 2, Episode 16 - Subscribe

Penguin enjoys some anachronistic familial bonding. Jim catches a bit of classical musical thee-ate-or. Bullock reaches out for help from a retiree. Several people get whacked on the noggin'. We get a pretty nice matte shot of Gotham at a distance. A rug gets ruined.

Wow! The production design inside Cobblepot manor... fucking excellent! Bye-bye, Pee Wee. You were too lovely for the grimey crime pit of Gotham city.

Sad to see Reubens gone so soon. Kind of an odd choice of movie at the prison, Seven Brides for Seven Brothets.

The only thing I didn't like about this episode was that Puck seemed like a sort of useless character. Gordon already has lots of reasons to be heroic, I don't think the death of a single guy is really that meaningful in the larger course of the story.

Poor least he didn't die in prison.

Hey, there are people of color in Gotham! Just have to go to prison to see them.

Watching Paul Reubens was great. He was terrific opposite Robin Taylor, the family resemblance and the same odd mannerisms. And the warm paternal embrace, apparently sincere. I didn't much care for the Scheming Family plotline or how it ended.

Also still don't care for Jim Gordon. He's the worst part of the show. Puck is a great example of why Gordon is so bad. Bring some optimistic kid in to remind us that Gordon's a Hero, then kill him in that service same episode. Ugh.
