What a difference 3 episodes makes. The last time I talked about this show, I was excited about it. I was finally seeing the flashes of awesomeness scattered within and was welcoming the next episode with open arms. Sadly, it was a complete turd and this shit got exponentially worse over the following three weeks.
Episode seven started okay, but then it had the worst scene I've ever sat through on a TV show, when an entire police force walks out of it's own precinct house and leaves Gordon all by himself against three bad guys. That was fucking stupid as hell. Episode eight continues it's downward spiral by having Alfred instigating little Bruce Wayne to almost kill a bully from school (Tommy Elliot, the future Bat-Villian 'Hush'). That 'bullying' was the kids making fun of bruce for his parents getting murdered. Hey, I get it, kids are mean, but this was some terrible writing and it was just really, really retarded.
That leads us to this weeks crapfest seeing Jim Grodon taking the recaptured Selina Kyle, and convincing Alfred and Bruce to allow her to crash at Wayne Manor. Obviously, this is the smartest place to put an homeless minor who steals everything in sight. Have I mentioned how much I hate this girl trying to act? Obviously, having her in multiple scenes didn't help trying to like this episode at all.
We were also introduced to Harvey Dent, an assistant DA in Gotham. On the show, the future Two-Face seems about the same age as Gordon, possibly a but younger. We also see him with his two headed coin and we see that he gets really angry and mean. I hate this already.
Last week, Gordon's girlfriend quits this bitch and leaves a note saying she's skipping town for a while. We find out this week that this was a secret code phrase for "I'm gonna go scissor with detective Montoya for a while."
Well, I've tried. I really wanted to like this show, but I can't. This shit's terrible and I'm done with it.
