    do you speak of the chiklis?

    i thought gotham was consistently weird, but i never found the quality of the show to fluctuate like it has on some of the longer-running cw shows, or to an extreme degree, agents of shield. there are no episodes, seasons, storylines that i skip on rewatches, even though there are certainly weaker characters and often some nonsensical **** happening.

    I assume the worst character was Barbara but even she came around once she went absolutely Bat-**** crazy (pun intended)...

    Yeah, Barbara. You're right that she had some crazy moments (then again, almost everyone did- it was one of the more consistently entertaining elements of the show) but I felt she derailed Gordon long before that.

    Chiklis was much more minor by comparison, so he didn't bother me as much even though he was weak at times- but I think that's only because he matched just part of Gotham's tone (the more grounded cop stuff, for obvious reasons) while the campier villainous aspect (particularly his dialogue) just didn't align right (and I enjoyed him as The Thing in FF, so it wasn't a general "comic booky" issue, either).

    Was watching Burton's Batman awhile ago and I realized with all the hobo psychotic clown interpretations of the Joker lately, they're missing the props and flamboyancy. The dude has a float-making budget and henchmen who breakdance. Let's see more of that.
