What’s Worth Watching: Gotham
Gotham, “The Blind Fortune Teller” (Monday, Feb. 16, 8/7c, Fox)
Must be February sweeps, because Gotham is hauling out the big guns tonight with the arrival of two major Batman staples—and we are psyched! First, is the heavily hyped debut of the nascent Joker, played by Shameless‘ Cameron Monaghan. Even though it’s likely to be just a teeny taste of the future baddie, the seeds are being planted for more Joker madness to come in Season 2. The episode also introduces The Flying Graysons, whom Batfans know as the acrobatic circus clan that eventually gives us Bruce’s young charge and sidekick, Dick Grayson, a.k.a. Robin. Too much, too soon? Bite your tongue. The more the show embraces its Bat-roots, the more entertaining it gets, so if you checked out early in the season, this is the prime time to get back in there. We’re not joking.
