I love this show, and I'm so glad to see it again. FOX
let us see the first two episodes of this season, and
they're very good.
In, the first episode, we see what's happened to the
various police (especially Jim) and villains, as well as
with young Bruce Wayne and his guardian, Alfred. In the
first episode, Jim has to make some terrible choices. I'm
trying hard to reveal spoilers here. The Penguin is doing
well, and he has taken over from Don Falcone with zeal. Jim
and his girlfriend Lee are still together, but they're
threatened by the events in Gotham. Some convicts
break out of Arkham Asylum, and they go on a rampage.
There's a new villain (or two) leading them. We see
Jim and the other police deal with the bad guys in the
second episode, but they pay a high price.
The future Riddler is still dealing with his psychotic
break, but he also has some nice moments with Miss Kringle.
Bruce and Alfred have a falling out, but they make up.
Alfred gets help from Lucious.
The stories are great and kept me on the edge of my seat.
I just love this show, and it seems even better this season.
They've given the villains a lot more to do, yet they still
stick to the heroes and their stories, as well as the
progress of Bruce Wayne.
If you haven't seen the first season, you definitely need
to go watch it before the second season premiere. You won't
be sorry. It's a great show. I can hardly wait for the rest
of the second season!
