Gotham is the origin story of the great DC Comics Super-Villains and vigilantes, revealing an entirely new chapter that has never been told. James Gordon and Harvey Bullock are assigned to track down the killer of Thomas and Martha Wayne. The story behind Commissioner James Gordon';;;;;s rise to prominence in Gotham City in the years before Batman';;;;;s arrival. Along the way, Gordon becomes involved with Gotham';;;;;s Mafia families and associates including gangster Fish Mooney, Don Carmine Falcone, and Italian mob boss Salvatore Maroni. Eventually, Gordon is forced to form an unlikely friendship with Bruce, one that will help shape the boy';;;;;s future in becoming the Batman.
Gotham continues to feel like a project where no one's entirely sure what the show is -- or, at least, how to make it function as a weekly TV series that has to offer some kind of episodic closure even as the different arcs build.
The reasons to love this one just keep coming, unlike weeks previously, where the comic bookery was limited to "guy with the name of an unrelated supervillain" or "guy with a pointy stick," "Viper" is classic Batman.
We're almost a quarter of the way through Gotham's first season, and the character that has seen the most development is Bruce frickin' Wayne, the emo Encyclopedia Brown. And the only reason he has the most is because he's getting any at all.
I recommended hanging in there when scoring Gotham's 4-Episode Test, and "Viper" made me feel good about that decision. It wasn't a perfect episode, but Gotham, I think, is always going to struggle to achieve "perfection."
