    [TV] Gotham

    Couldn't find an existing thread so I thought I would start one.


    Let me start by saying....HOLYYYY SHIEEETTT. Spoiler: He turns into Batman



    Looks good!! Hope it doesn't end up being another Smallville.

    Edit: Forgot to add trailer for those who have not seen it.

    It's on FOX, so it'll last half a season and get cancelled.

    Sad but True. It will be replaced by a special season of American Idol.

    epic.

    defo gonna watch it. i'm usually not a big fan of detective series, but since this is a fictive universe it will be nice to see how the legendary criminals came to be.
    This is a signature, there are many like it, but this one is mine.

    Between this, Doctor Who, Sherlock, The Flash, and Arrow I have a pretty good set up for television starting to form!

    I am not a big fan of the Batman universe but this looks really interesting. Will give this one a try for sure.

    Always liked pre-origin story stories like this- I can't wait.

    Batman is Batman, so I'll probably give it a watch, although I wonder how interesting pre-Batman Gotham can be.
    Belief can become reality!

    Looks very promising. I hope it lives up to what it could be.

    What's Ryan from the OC doing in Gotham?


    Seriously though, looks pretty decent, I'll give it the old "Three Episode" test.

    Can't help but feel like their trying to milk the current superhero hype, like ABC's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D'.

    But it does look really good and I'll more than likely check it out. I don't read the comics, but I've always enjoyed the character of Commission Gordan. So it'll be nice to learn more about his background, as well as the beginnings of some of Gotham's most infamous villains.
    If you showed a caveman our technology, he would think it was magic. If you showed modern man magic, he would think it was technology.

    So is the following the origin stories of a bunch of characters on a episode by episode basis or only following Gordon?

    I think it's going to be following Gordon for the most part since it had "detective" in the following shots.

    Looked like a bit of both. Seems Gordon is the main focus, but villains in their pre-villain forms will appear on it. I wonder if it will be just cameos, or if they will be recurring characters.

    the only way this will be good is if they either

    A: make up or use a bunch of new/nonbatman related people so that they can still have successes without making batman seem pointless while also building up all the people who are going to make the real crazy shit happen

    B: diverge from continuity heavily

    C: have time skips to where by the 2nd or 3rd season its batman time

    "so what do we do?" "well jack, you stand there and say 'gee rocket raccoon I'm so glad you brought that Unfeasibly large cannon with you..' and i go like this BRAKKA BRAKKA BRAKKA" - Rocket Raccoon

    I lost faith in humanity after watching 5 episodes, trying to like Game of Thrones. Apparently the best series there is. So..we all have our different breaking points

    Just kidding. Who loses faith in humanity over a freaking TV series?

    So, in short: the internet.
