show has this upcoming episode to persuade me or I'm out.
this whole villains thing is a mess, It's almost like when they got rid of fish mooney the writers were like "how else can we waste everyones time when they're watching this show?"
I'm tired of Jerome acting like the Joker, but not being THE actual Joker, he had waaaaay to much screen time this past episode. Hate what they did with barbara, did we really need a Joker and Harley stand in with suicide squad right around the corner?? This is what's turning me off to the show the most, the fact that they think the audience is so stupid that people will just continue to watch because it's someone acting like the Joker, trying to hard to capitalize on his character.
Did we even need a subplot involving a love triangle with alfred, gordon and gordon's chick??
Show had something the 1st season by staying out of all the familiar territories. Now it's adding all this "pizzazz" and it's not going anywhere. What was the point of introducing harvey Dent or Luscious Fox??
I'd rather see the show scaled down to basics. Gordon clashing with dent over who he prosecutes, Luscious giving gordon simple gadgets, to help him out with cases. Riddler still slowly becoming the riddler
(maybe he secretly becomes the riddler and begins giving GothamPD riddles to people he's murdered, but they never solve the riddles in time, that could be a great subplot).
Hell even give penguin another rival to start a war with over Gotham.
I don't like the time jump gimmick but if they did do one, It needs to be done with Bruce, of course show the murder of mom and pop, but maybe then jump a few years until he's 4-5 years(seasons) out of becoming batman and showing him actually taking over wayne enterprises, discovering the cave, clashing with Gordon over his promise, dressing up in makeshift outfit that looks NOTHING like the final product, with very limited gadgetry and somewhat giving a helping hand to an unknowing gordon on certain cases.
It really is such a travesty, especially when they had hype on this show(best new pilot of it's TV season, and it's a comic book show) If they don't do major changes soon, it will get cancelled
