If this week's Gotham proved anything, it's that a case-of-the-week format is not a very good fit.

The plot is full of contrivances -- the detective who teases Gordon, the clue that allows Gordon to figure out that a disgruntled social worker is the Balloonman -- but it does at least provide some thematic material to help develop [the] characters.

I'd hate to burst your bubble (and dole out bad puns), but "The Balloonman" won't have you at the edge of your seat.

"The Balloonman" could have been a good episode. At the very least, it could have been a not-horrible episode.

Everyone on this show is overacting, remaining in the same exaggerated acting mode that characterized the first two episodes instead of settling into their characters and bringing more weight to their performances.

Gotham is coming together with unbelievable speed for a show that's barely been around three weeks. Already, it's given me that "I will commit horrible deeds to see what happens next" feeling.

"The Balloonman" was okay, but the more and more Gotham is shown as a cesspool from every perceivable angle, the harder it is to care about anything or anyone.

It was darkly funny, absurd, and for the first time entertaining from beginning to end.
