'Gotham' Desperate to Revive Itself; Brings in More Supervillians Soon

Posted on the 12 February 2015 by Remesh Venkitachalam
'Gotham' was having a very bad run during the pre- mid season episode. It was dragging and boring, and none of the characters made any real impact in the notorious world of Gotham City. The writers were earning a lot of flak for their poor imaginations. It seems desperate, but they felt the need to invite more super-villains into the TV series much sooner than expected. And how did these changes do for the series?

Last week, we got to see the beginning of the two part introduction into the life of young Jonathan Crane aka future Scarecrow. It began with his father trying to get rid of his fears through vast immoral experimentations. He convinced his teenage son that all his experiments were for the better of mankind. Dr. Gerald Crane, father of Johnathan invents a serum that will bring about the worst fears in your lives.
This episode and the next, where we see Johnathan turn into what he was destined to be, are the best episodes till now in 'Gotham'. Not only did it introduce a great villain in Batman's universe, but also, has been able to do it well, compared to the others that we already know of.
Bruce goes on a lone trek where he learns about courage and perseverance. For a moment, I thought it would be his time of reckoning, and his finding his path. But, nothing really happened on that front. That would be an interesting episode, whenever it comes.
But the writers are not going to stop there. If you did catch the trailer of the next episode, you will know how the writers are sprucing the whole thing up. They have realised that Gordon, played by a lacklustre Ben Mackenzie, cannot hold the show on his shoulders. The viewers are instead more interested in Batman and his foes. Therefore, we see one of the greatest adversaries being born in the next episode. Catch him here :
