“GOTHAM: THE FIFTH AND FI­NAL SEA­SON”

The Fresno Bee (Sunday) - - On TV -

Since this Fox se­ries largely was about Bruce Wayne’s (David Ma­zouz) jour­ney to­ward be­com­ing Bat­man, the end­ing shouldn’t come as a shock in this last round of the the­mat­i­cally and lit­er­ally dark drama, for which Ben McKen­zie – alias the show’s Jim Gordon – di­rected and wrote episodes. Though the Gotham City Po­lice Depart­ment does its best to maintain law and or­der, such fa­mously villainous fig­ures as the Pen­guin (Robin Lord Tay­lor) and the Rid­dler (Cory Michael Smith) do their best to see that an­ar­chy and lar­ceny reign. Donal Logue, Morena Bac­carin (who mar­ried McKen­zie dur­ing the show’s run), Sean Per­twee, Erin Richards and Cam­ren Bi­con­dova also wrap up their roles, with Shane West join­ing the cast for the con­clud­ing sea­son as neme­sis Bane. A “Com­plete Se­ries” set also is newly avail­able. DVD ex­tras: “mak­ing-of” doc­u­men­tary; deleted scenes; 2018 New York Comic-Con high­lights. ★★★ (Not rated: AS, P, V) (Also on Blu-ray)
