Since it was announced that FOX would be making a show, a Batman prequel, based on the life of Jim Gordon, there has been a lot of hype about it. If I’m being honest, I wasn’t expecting all that much, because if I’m being even more honest, Batman was never a superhero I admired (and sometimes, even liked). But now Gotham premiered, I saw it and I liked it!
Jim Gordon and Alfred were always my favorites in the Batman stories, and that pretty much sticks on Gotham. More than that, Donal Logue as Harvey Bullock is a scene stealer, but that may just be because I really love Donal! Another scene stealer is young Bruce, played by David Mazouz, that boy is just outstanding.
Great pilot, awesome to see these little (and some not so little) teasers of what’s to come. Episode one, and we already have Penguin, The Riddle and Poison Ivy, and let’s not even mention Catwoman.
