Gotham may have returned, and appears to be swinging for the fences, but last season did not end on what we would call a high note. To go over the highs (Penguin!) and lows (Barbara!), RevNews host Gary Mitchel  got BatFans Christina Janke , Nathan Laws, and Mike Nelson to return from their look back at the first half of the season to see if their optimism for the show at the half-way mark was met. (SPOILER: Not so much.)

Listen in as they discuss which of them was able to even watch to the end of the season; how they break the show down by examining their feelings about each main character; how it entered too CW for CW territory with Leslie vs Barbara; the fact that schizophrenia just doesn't happen!; their love for Bullock & Alfred; their disappointment with the fall of Fish; the show's bad habit of sidelining characters; what they feel is main source of the series' problems; and Christina's lament that Constantine was canceled, yet, somehow, this show survives.

The RevolutionSF Revcast theme music is "20 Minutes of Oxygen" by Darkest of the Hillside Thickets. Find them at

A reminder about our feedback address: How do you think Penguin should have come out on top?
