Bruce Is Becoming The Batman!
14 March 2016 | by bushdylanSee all my reviews

This episode was pure amazing, sprouting with excitement anger and sadness at the same time! Not only has this show gotten better, it's magnificent right now and it's a pure joy to watch! So what they can play around with lore a bit but oh my god! This show is really jumping with sublime passion! David (Bruce) is spectacular in the role and keeps getting better and I like that he understands what the character is and will become. Again, BD Wong nails it as Hugo Strange and shocks me with his outstanding acting. Great Episode and can't wait for the next! I love that this show is not afraid to take risks as it dives towards greatness! Keep going Gotham you doing superb!
