Overall, while it lacked the batty goodness that made "Octopus Head" such a worthy follow-up to the season premiere, "Last Fight" maintained a good bit of the tension that Grimm has built up over the last couple weeks.
I'm gonna come right out and say it: "Penguin's Umbrella" was my favorite episode of Gotham to date even with all the "ugh, Barbara" moments.
"Paper Moon" was probably the strongest fourth episode of a Supernatural season that we've had in some time.
I don't want to jump the gun and state that Gotham has weathered its worst growing pains and evolved from a merely "watchable" show to a legitimately enjoyable one, but the last few episodes have shown a marked improvement.
"Thanks for the Memories" left us with more questions than answers, but it still left me pumped for the rest of the season.
After several weeks of mediocre-at-best episodes, "Viper" was pleasantly surprising in both its writing and its execution.
Demon Dean is pretty much the gift that keeps on giving and giving and giving.
Gotham finally got around to addressing the elephant on the outskirts of the city, but "Arkham" still suffered from the problems that've plagued the show since the start.
While Demon Dean ran around having the time of his (after)life, Sammich freaked out and did naughty things to get his brother back.
"The Balloonman" could have been a good episode. At the very least, it could have been a not-horrible episode. What a shame.
Though it was fairly batty (pun partially intended), Gotham's second episode contained some strong character moments that brought our cast into sharper focus than the pilot initially allowed.
In some ways, the two-episode Season 8 premiere felt like a step backward.
