Gotham: "All Happy Families Are Alike" (Season 1, Episode 22)

Uh... Okay.

Gotham's first season finale is pretty much the whole season in a microcosm--entertaining in brief moments that float atop a disjointed, frothy mess. The overall effect is more laughable than dramatic. And that's even before young Bruce discovers his dear old deceased Dad had a Batcave of his own. Seriously.


The Walking Dead: "Conquer" (Season 5, Episode 16)

Call it the Good, the Bad, and the Meh. This year's finale was an odd mixture of things interesting and silly, things that ultimately worked better in the closing moments than they really deserved to, right up until the moment...

It just kind of ended. It almost felt like they ran out of film. Or megabytes these days, I suppose.      

"The Good"


12 Monkeys: "Shonin" (Season 1, Episode 11)

"Hope is the luxury of those unburdened by fate." That's as good a line as any for a show that's literally swallowing its own tail in a fairly impressive manner. The future's attempt to stop a historical plague is, in fact, causing it to happen. So what do you do? I guess that will be up to Cole to figure out in 2015. At least this time he knows how twisted the game has become.  


The Walking Dead: "Try" (Season 5, Episode 15)

The Dead was mediocre tonight. Simply put, this episode was too obviously just arranging pieces for next week's finale, yielding too many storylines that felt brief and forced. No one will care, however, if next week is good. Bridging episodes are, after all, kind of written to be forgotten.
