The early buzz on GOTHAM is rather good actually

I still can’t believe how quickly the idea of Gotham has taken to go from the concept stage through to a fully realised 13 episode series that debuts soon. Most times, a show that is rushed that quickly into production implies bad scripts, cheap production values and a cheesy atmosphere. But on Gotham however, it looks like we may have some genuine quality waddling through the underworld of the Batman hometown.


A gritty prequel that follows Gotham cop Jim Gordon early in his career after the murder of Thomas and Martha Wayne, Gotham also charts the rise of the lowlife of that city. Characters such as Oswald Cobblepot (Penguin), Selina Kyle (Catwoman) and the Riddler will all be present, as will a few new faces. A few lucky folks have already seen the first episode of Gotham. And it looks like the hype has paid off:

Gotham kicks off in the US of A fall TV season ad stars Ben McKenzie, David Mazouz, Camren Bicondova, Robin Taylor and Cory Michael Smith.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
