Over-the-top criminal TV programming on Fox.

Madness reigns over Gotham in its third season. Dangerous psychotic inmates imprisoned at the Arkham Asylum(*,**) take over the asylum and then run about loose in Gotham from one episode to the next.

Important context note: Many of the Arkham detainees have died and been resurected into a new maniacal purpose by the evil Dr. Hugo Strange. Dangerous characters previously pronounced dead come back later even more wicked and dangerous for another episode or two.

This third season I kind of miss Fish Mooney from the previous two seasons.

There is definitely some influence from previous Batman movies at play here. Tim Burton; yes. Nolan; yep its in there. Adam West; nope. none of that.

Pshchotic and way, way over the top.

I can turn away and forget about it at any moment.

But I in general don't watch things like Batman.

    Victor, stick with it. I was not that enthralled with the first half-dozen episodes either. It is not high-art, but it is a lot of fun. It's a video comic-book.

    I am warming up to it slightly. I appreciate its thick texture.

    I still find the individual sub-plots kind of silly and poorly developed, but the main story line has some substance to it.

    I am watching on Netflix, which has two seasons. Where is the third one showing?

    "I am watching on Netflix, which has two seasons. Where is the third one showing?"

    Third season is now and unfolding on the Fox network. Easy to find if living in USA. One of the local ota channels. Not so sure how to find if living in Canada.

    By the time I am done with 1 and 3, I will have to pay Amazon to see the 3, I am afraid. Which is OK - you can't win them all. :)
