Season endings…

tvgothamYou know, I really couldn’t imagine Gotham lasting 22 episodes. It just didn’t seem like the show had it in itself to last and I’m pleasantly surprised that not only HAS it lasted, but that it’s kept us entertained the entire time. This season finale was over the top, but actually didn’t quite feel like a finale, it felt like the end of just about any other given episode.

The news leaked of course that Jada Pinket Smith wasn’t coming back next season, but watching the episode I really wasn’t sure. She certainly seemed poised to come out on top…the fact that she didn’t would have been a HUGE twist if we hadn’t already known she wasn’t coming back. Then again, are we sure about that? Her exit was merely falling into the water…my wife’s first reaction to t hat was “She’s not dead!”. I wonder if Smith will be back in guest roles.

I’ve never thought of Gordon as an action hero, and this was an interesting twist for me. I really like it. The action of the entire episode has been stellar, and of course to see the penguin at the end…it just fits.

iZombie is still fun, quirky and even keeled. With the exception of the kinda-cliffhanger ending this week, I really didn’t find anything really shocking here. A bit of a drag that the season is so short though. The original order for the first season was only set for 10 episodes, scheduled to wrap on May 19; next week. The good news is that it’s been renewed for a second season, but no word on how many episodes or how long we’ll have to wait. Pretty soon, I’m going to have NO new TV…after all the Flash wraps up tonight….

The Flash. Man, what a great show. It’s kept me on a consistant high throughout the season, and my girls are SO into it. Really, this is what fans have been saying all along as production companies struggle to crack the “formula” for the superhero shows. Just embrace it. revel in it. The Flash knows exactly what it is and we love it for that. The reverse flash arch has been trhilling and even a little wierd – we got used to Wells as a mostly good guy and I’m missing him back at HQ, but on the other hand, I’m dying to see what happens next – and the fact that tonight is another Team up episode? Yes please. I’m only sorry it has to break for a while. Really bummed, but then again, when it comes back next year, it’ll have even more company with the new Firestorm/Atom/ Black Canary show. Can’t wait.
