SDCC 2017: Greatest Hits & Upcoming Thrills Trailer: Gotham: Season 4!

Warner Bros. Television brought a very dark Gotham sizzle reel to Sn Diego for Comic-Con 2017 – just over four of its almost six-minutes run through some of the many key moments of Season Three.

It’s the last minute-and-a-half where we get to see some spectacular teases for Season Four: Bruce in action; Selina in action; the unveiling of the frosty centerpiece at Penguin’s Iceberg Lounge; a glimpse of someone/something like a rabid Joker and the first appearance of a certain Crane alias.

Gotham returns on Thursday, September 28th (FOX, 8/7C).

Supergirl and Gotham Blu-ray Release Dates Announced

I love me some Gotham. It’s a messy show that’s hard to defend, but that’s precisely why I like it. Can people stop whining about the fact that Batman isn’t in it and accept that this is an elseworld’s version of Gotham and has nothing to do with “canon?” Whatever “canon” even means these days.

I wasn’t as enamored with this season of Supergirl as I was last year. After a strong start, I thought this years theme of literal “alienation,” got a bit tired. However I still love the cast and its upbeat tone is a refreshing change from all the other overly serious Superhero shows.  Gotham: The Complete Third Season arrives on Blu-ray & DVD starting August 29, 2017 and Supergirl: The Complete Second Season comes to Blu-ray & DVD on August 22, 2017. Where are my 4K TV Season releases? Gah. That’s right, I’m never satisfied.

Despite one of tonight’s plot arcs on Gotham (FOX, Mondays, 8/7C) being a goof, Mad City: Executioner manages to survive with lively Penguin/Nygma and Ivy/Bruce/Selina arcs.

After a poignant momentary glance at Lee, the third season premiere of Gotham, Mad City: Better To Reign In Hell, finds Jim Gordon back in Gotham, thwarting the robbery of a pharmacy by a giant who looks to be part stegosaurus.

The monsters are making things tough for police. Not making their image better is Gordon’s successful work as a bounty hunter. And then there’s the inquiring mind of Gotham Gazette reporter Valerie Vale…

The second season finale of Gotham – Wrath of the Villains: Transference – flirts heavily with going off the rails, but hangs on to provide a potentially catastrophic cliffhanger in which none of the usual suspects are actually at risk.

Oh, no. This time it’s Gotham as a whole that’s in trouble.

As Gotham (FOX, Mondays, 8/7C) steams toward the end of its second season, it has not fallen into bad comics goofiness like it did last year. Instead, it’s gotten darker and more twisted – we’ve even caught a glimpse of Killer Croc (or a reasonable facsimile thereof) in the dying moments of last week’s ep (just before Firefly’s attempted fricassee of Selina Kyle.

Wrath of the Villains: A Legion of Horribles picks up right where it left off and carries on to a staggering cliffhanger that will lead into next week’s season finale with style (if not grace).

Meanwhile, Nygma makes Jim Gordon an ominous promise and Captain Barnes discovers that his ‘by the book’ methodology doesn’t always work.

Now that Bruce Wayne has the name of his parents’ killer, and a gun, it’s time for him to seek out the infamous Matches Malone. It’ll take an audience with God (kind of), but the meeting is now inevitable.

Meanwhile, Oswald T. Cobblepot has a little more therapy to face and Edward Nygma learns that Jim Gordon is looking into Kristin Kringle’s whereabouts and leaps to a completely unfounded suspicion.
