Gotham: "Welcome Back, Jim Gordon" (Season 1, Episode 13)

And you weren't awful. Stupid, yes, awful, no. Way to go, Jim. It may be faint praise, but after the last two episodes, not being awful is almost good. It helps that most of the side bits are serviceable as well.

You were minimally adequate, big guy. Baby steps, right?   


12 Monkeys: "Mentally Divergent" (Season 1, Episode 2)

I still don't know quite what to make of this series. It tried out a little more personality in this episode and does have aspects that could be interesting. It's also got some stylistic problems I already find irritating. The resulting whole is, indeed, mentally divergent.


Star Wars Rebels: The Idiot's Array

Mama Fisi's picture

The title kind of sums up this episode: it was dreadful.

Zeb bets and loses Chopper during a game of sabacc he's playing with Lando Calrissian--voiced by Billy Dee Williams, who sounds far too old to be the smooth-talking thirty-something gambler and smuggler he's playing here.  Calrissian then hires the crew of the Ghost to smuggle some specialized mining equipment past the Imperial blockade of Lothal.  He alternately sucks up to, and pisses off, the various members of the crew.



Gotham: "What the Little Bird Told Him"

This show has always had a structural problem. Now it's officially got a writing problem to go with it. While not as awful as last week's sludge pump of an episode, this one is a whirlpool of anticlimaxes leading absolutely nowhere. It's going to be a long 10-15 years waiting for Bruce to do his Bat thing.
