    I liked tonight's ep, the stuff with Maroni and Penguin is fun and Fish prepping her honey trap for Falcone is also good. Plus in the main story we got an origin for Venom, the possibilities there are obviously intriguing.

    I also think the show is handling young Bruce's early steps in becoming a detective and wanting justice over vengeance, really well.

    The scene with Selina tonight seemed pointless though, as it didn't play into anything.

    I'm done... this show is so dumb. No actual characters, just caricatures. It's so utterly cheesy while trying so hard to be dark.

    No love of Batman can make me watch this drivel. Yes, Bruce stuff is great (albeit oddly placed), Gordon is good and the city looks cool but they don't know how to present or plan anything. They just throw **** at the screen that they pulled out of a Batman dictionary.

    They even have ruined Bullock, even though Donald was a great casting choice.

    Episode 2 of Gotham dropped quite a bit here in the UK. 1.35m (5.9%)
    * +1 - 125k (0.8%).

    Steep enough drop. I wonder how long until Channel 5 moves it to the dreaded midnight slot on a random cable channel.

    I think ep 5 is the first I've really loved from this show. The others I've either disliked, or liked in a sort of "maybe this will get good later" kind of way. But episode 5 pushed all the right buttons, and I hope there's more like it. It was good that Bruce finally got some real character arc movement, and got out of the house. Gordon and Bullock seem to be becoming better friends, but don't totally trust each other. And the venom plot line was a lot of fun.

    Minor nitpicks:

    How come Alfred had to tell the banquet greeter Bruce's name? Surely he's famous enough that people would recognize him by face alone?

    Also, is "Ivy Pepper" coming back, or was that just a one-off thing?

    Are the children of millionaires really that famous?

    His parent's murder was a highly publicized news event that was all over TV and the papers and even got a televised eulogy from the mayor. With that kind of media coverage, surely they at the very least flashed Bruce's picture a couple of times ("The Waynes are survived by their son, shown here", that kind of thing).

    ^You're assuming the greeter closely followed the story of the Wayne murders, or that weeks later she would even remember a picture of a boy whose picture was flashed on the TV a couple of times.

    The Waynes were famous in Gotham, but I doubt tabloids were following their every movie. Most people probably have no clue what Bruce looks like.

    Announcing Bruce's name wasn't done because the door-woman didn't recognize him; it was done because of the formal nature of the charity event.

    Yes, but with all the media coverage of his parent's funeral (that he attended), he should at least be at "Hey, haven't I seen you on TV?" level of fame. And if nothing else, he's the heir to the company that sponsored the event.

    Still, he has been a bit of a recluse these past few weeks, so you might have a point.

    EDIT: DigificWriter is also probably right.

    I bet a number of New Yorkers, especially those who would go to or work at such an event or swanky kind of place, would recognize Donald Trump's kids if they showed up somewhere, especially if Trump was killed in front of them very recently.

    Well, I did say it was a nitpick.

    Just because you are a billionaire does not mean you are a celebrity. There are many rich people out there who are basically unknown to the average public.

    Right, but wasn't Thomas Wayne a celebrity? At least locally to Gotham?
