Gotham Splash

Episode: 102
Airdate: September 29, 2014
Directed by: Danny Cannon
Showrunner: Bruno Heller
Episode Written by: Bruno Heller

Last week’s series premiere did it’s best to establish just how dark and corrupt Gotham is, and how difficult the job Jim Gordon [Ben McKenzie] has in front of him is going to be. Tonight, as the episode title suggests, we get to know a little bit more about one of the characters who will likely be playing a major role in the series: Selina Kyle [Camren Bicondova], the young Catwoman. Last week I expressed concern over Bicondova – she is pretty good at doing set poses in conspicuous locations (and isn’t conspicuous kind of the opposite of stealthy?), but she wasn’t given a single spoken line. So the real question is: can this actor, who will play a significant role moving forward, actually act? Click through after the break to find out.

Released the year I graduated from high school, twenty-seven years ago, I didn’t actually see The Princess Bride until it came out on VHS; however, from the first time I saw it, it became one of my go-to movies, one of those films that, if I’m surfing through the channels and see it on, I’ll stop, sit back, and enjoy it to the end. There are only a handful of films that are in this category for me, and although it isn’t technically or artistically one of the best films out there, it’s one of my favorites, and can hold its own, thank you very much.
