Yip yip! Can't wait. I'll be watching it tonight. Because of the time difference between the U.S and Ireland I have to wait til the following day to watch it.

Judging by the name of this episode, I'm expecting it to be good. Edward Nygma is one of my favourite characters on the show and if he's going full Riddler, then all the better.

Yes just watched it, and it was good. Also Bruce finally kicked some but. The chance for a season 4 for Gotham looks good. Honestly for season 4 I wish they would fast forward it 10 years and have Batman already.

Yeah, they should definitely advance the timeline a bit and recast Bruce Wayne. There's no way he's believable as a badass vigilante. He's all skin and bones. And he still looks like he's 12 years old.

Overall I liked the episode last night but what was with that musical Penguin scene? That was just weird. But it's good to finally see The Riddler in all his glory. And some of his riddles were kind of tough. Definitely a step up from Jim Carrey's "riddles for dummies". I think they could have kept the Penguin's fate a secret for a little longer but on the other hand I am glad to see him back so soon.

I was proud of myself because just like Foxy, I guessed the last Riddle "reflection". Well young Bruce has gotten alot taller but yeah agree with you. Well if don't want to see Penguin in a musical stay away from acid. I have a feeling that Poison Ivy getting older is just temporary. I loved it when Penguin was laughing and said "I just remember, I need to kill somebody"

I was wondering when they were going to get to the point of why they decided to age Ivy. Up to know, she hasn't done anything significant. Maybe she'll be Penguins next love interest?

Oh he was horrible in the role. Way over the top, even the 60's TV show Riddler was better. I know there was talk about Robin Willams being the Riddler but I know that would have also sucked. I thought at the time Anthony Hopkins would have been a great Riddler. The actor they have on Gotham is really good in the role.

Well, as far as love interests go, it would be an improvement on the Riddler

I really, really liked the latest episode. Ivy finally has a storyline worth investing in, Bruce is getting close to becoming Batman, Gordon is getting in deep with the Court of Owls, the Penguin is great, as always, and it's always nice to see Barbara.

I guess that's why they aged her, hard to do the show showing off her sexuality at the age of 11. I'm guessing by the time the show comes to an end she will either revert to her normal age or they will say that the side effect is that poison Ivy never ages.

OK the previous episode with the Riddler, don't you think they would have guessed the person leaving riddles for clues was Edward Eginma? I mean when he was on the force he was always telling riddles. Yeah I guess wouldn't be an interesting episode if they guessed it right away.

I sort of have to disagree with you on Jim Carrey playing the Riddler. He was the best thing in that otherwise toilet dump of a movie that was Batman Forever. Joel Schumacher nearly killed off the entire superhero movie genre, and it was only the original X-Men movie that made it safe for people to actually want to see superheroes again.

But I do especially like the casting they did in this series for both the Penguin and Riddler. They not only show how malevolent they each are but also show their vulnerabilities and failings and how it shaped their destinies. And if The Jerome character is supposed to be the origin of the Joker, then that was an amazing casting choice as well.

I totally disagree with you, I hated Jim Carey as the Riddler, he looked the part but was way over the top

Jim Carrey didn't play The Riddler in that movie. Jim Carrey played Jim Carrey. There was very little difference between his Edward Nygma and Ace Ventura. If given the right script and a director with even a bit of sense, Jim Carrey COULD have been a great Riddler. Batman Forever had a good cast for the most part but the script was horrible and Joel Schumacher had no business directing a Batman movie.

Exactly. It amazes me how a children's cartoon is more mature than a whole bunch of adults making a really bad movie

Were Tabitha's boobs always that.... impressive, let's say? I never noticed that before.

Selina getting pushed out the window was very Batman Returns. I liked it. I also liked Penguin getting his gang of freaks together. I wonder if their numbers will increase in the coming weeks or will they remain a foursome for now. I wouldn't be surprised to see Fish Mooney join their club...

I really liked The Riddler again this week. I imagine he'll probably be absent for a while, what with him going with the Court, but I'd like to see him wearing his mask and carrying his cane when he returns.


Another really good episode overall. My only complaint is that Bruce Wayne, that is the real Bruce Wayne, didn't feature at all and I was hoping to see more of whatever he's doing with that old guy from last week. (Bonus Trivia: That old guy played Timothy Olyphant's father in Justified).




Extra bonus trivia: I'm no good with names so I just refer to him as "old guy". smile

Yes he will most likely be with the owls for awhile, thus Penguin will have his turn in the sun for awhile. Have a feeling Riddler and Penguin will cross paths in the season finale. My only complaint is I want the Riddlers suit to be green, last night episode more dark

It would be nice to have the green costume but perhaps they're weary of him looking too much like Jim Carrey's version. That's not the kind of association they want.
