Gotham: "Knock, Knock" (Season 2, Epsiode 2)

Holy Writer's Guild, Batman! Gotham's producers may have honest-to God figured out how to tell a story. A violent, depressing story, to be sure, but still one with some style, verve and actual élan. I'm not sure they can keep it up, but this wasn't bad for television.


Gotham: "Damned If You Do" (Season 2, Episode 1)

The second season premiere of Gotham takes a long hard look at itself in the mirror and hits the nail on the head: 'Sometimes the right thing is the ugly thing." So they've given up and become a comic book. A nasty one at that. It's not exactly good, but I guess it's a little better than it was.


Fear the Walking Dead: "Not Fade Away" (Season 1, Episode 4)

You know how you sometimes see a zombie movie where they spend 5 -15 minutes showing the world go to hell. That's okay because it's only 5-15 minutes. Heck, even the movie itself is two hours max. But suppose you stretch those 5-15 minutes out to four hours with no end in sight?

That, my friend, is "Fear the Walking Dead." And yes, it's dull.
