Burn 'Gotham' Down: The Last Laugh

Hello everyone. I apparently hate myself enough to continue watching Gotham for writing purposes. My hate of this show comes from a deep dark place down in my belly. I flat out dropped it last year because it was just so so so bad. Just because a show is based on a comic book property…

Gotham: A Bad Comics Show or the Worst Comics Show Ever?

I am a television junkie. I’ll watch just about anything. I’ve also recently been swept up in the new age of movies and television shows based on comics.

While everything isn’t a winner (coughAmazingSpider-Man2cough), we’ve got things like Guardians of the Galaxy and Captain America: The Winter Soldier on the big screen. Adaptations on television have been increasing as well. Arrow has…
