The doctor is in! Jonolobster and AprilJo sit down to share our thoughts on part one of the Scarecrow origin story two-parter, “The Fearsome Dr. Crane.” We discuss the Penguin’s road trip, Fish’s sea voyage, Jim and Harvey’s new loves, and pitch teacup pigs as the hip new villain accessory. But does this episode deliver the scares or does it suffer from a case of bad writing? We’re afraid you’ll just have to listen to find out!

It might just be the dry winter air, but Jonolobster and AprilJo get shocked by the latest episode of Gotham. Perhaps it has something to do with the impressive-looking villain of the week or the latest twist in the mob war storyline, but this episode finds us doling out the praise. We celebrate Gotham’s series renewal, discuss the show’s upcoming daddy issues, and speculate on possible villain team ups later in the series. Listen and enjoy!

Gotham is back from hiatus along with Jonolobster and AprilJo. We discuss ‘90s Batman movies, Agents of SHIELD, and spread a little Agent Carter love before diving into “Rogues’ Gallery.” We ponder the nature of bonsai trees, loyalty among gangsters, and the general lack of rogues in this particular gallery. But should this episode lie full fathom five or does it earn a spot in the gallery of Gotham’s best hours? Listen and find out!

Finally, it’s our long-lost “Lovecraft” episode! After a bit of a delay, AprilJo and Jonolobster discuss the mid-season finale of season one of Gotham. We discuss poutine, binge-watching comic book TV and movies, and what we’ve been up to during the hiatus. We also discuss the episode itself, including our theories about who hired the assassins and who Bullock’s new partner might be. Enjoy!

The rain in Gotham falls on the just and unjust alike, but mostly on the just, because the Penguin is a freaking boss. Jonolobster and AprilJo are joined by guest host Dr. Shaun Treat, who teaches about the mythic rhetoric of American superheroes. Together, they discuss the reveal of the Penguin’s secret alliance, the debut of Victor Zsasz/The Mist, and the many perils facing Gotham’s women – even the nuns aren’t safe! The nuns! But does this episode earn its notch in the show’s forearm or is it for the birds? (Honk, honk!) Listen and find out!

Jonolobster coins a new phrase, AprilJo breaks down her theory for the rest of the season, and we bid a fond farewell to Billy, who leaves the show on a high note by leading us in a round of “yo momma” jokes. Listen and enjoy!
