At some point since I stopped watching Gotham, the show has embraced the completely buck-wild tone it’s developed over three seasons. And it now seems to have gone off the deep end in the most spectacular way, judging by this new trailer. Honestly, it looks so good, I’m contemplating catching up the moment I finish this very blog.

There’s the Court of Owls being all sinister. More hints of Bruce’s training to become Batman. Hell, there’s the most delightful line from Fish Mooney: “You have to love Gotham... people always pointing guns at each other.”
