I don't remember Murder Turkey being part of Batman's rogues gallery.

I thought it was a shame that they got rid of her right away, and kind of pointlessly.

I'm getting sort of bored with this show, and judging by the slow discussion here maybe others are?

But a nice bit of throwaway dialog I wanted to call out.. When Bruce picks the lock at the Mystery House, Alfred says "oh good she's made a bloody tea leaf out of you". That's a bit of Cockney rhyming slang for "thief". Not a big thing, but I appreciated it.

It has definitely gone from something I made a point of watching to something I put on while I do the dishes.

I think the show suffers badly from poor pacing, far too many plot lines wrap up, rather forcefully, with interesting characters created then promptly swept way instead of being drawn out over a longer arc. I mean think of the rollercoaster ride that has been Gordon's life this season: gets fired, gets his job back by making a deal with penguin, goes rogue to hunt down gallivan, gets off from that murder only to be framed for another, goes to prison, escapes, goes rogue to find the person who ordered the hit on the Waynes. That's a crazy plotline for one person even disregarding all the other stuff that's been going on. The writers are just leaving so many good stories untold in their rush.

At least that's my 2ยข
