So far, I’m pretty disappointed in this season of The 100 and considering the show is about to take a month long break after next week’s episode they have a lot of ground (pun intended) to make up. What this season is missing is a sense of urgency and coherence. Season 1 and 2 were special because it was a show that swung for the fences and 9 times out of 10 hit it out of the park. It was bold, visionary and shocking but not for the sake of being “shocking.” Each season had a common goal that everyone was working towards. There was never a cliche’d last minute save, the stakes were constantly ramped up and raised the bar on how good tv fantasy/sci-fi can be.

It’s been a weird, but mostly solid season of Gotham so far. After last week’s episode, it’s time for the show to start a new chapter. How do they follow up last week’s shocking ending?

Gotham’s freshman season comes to a close in the only way it could – a meandering, mess of an episode that felt like it was all over the place. The show runners have no idea what they want Gotham to be. Is it a crime procedural that just happens to be set in pre-Batman Gotham? Is it truly a prequel to Batman? Is it really about all of Batman’s Villains? Is it trying to be The Sopranos? It suffered from trying to do too many things at once and being good at nothing.

Anytime a show kicks off it’s new season with a graphic scene of someone getting their penis chopped and being replaced with a crow – no, really, it’s exactly what you think it would be, you know you have just left all sense of reality and logic behind. WGN’s Salem returns this week with a barnburner of an opener.

After a very strong pilot, Gotham returns for its second episode and already you can start to see a little pattern forming in the show’s initial formula. It’s too early to tell if this will make the show a little too predictable or not.
