    !Romanesque. The satire of tracery lighted by dark night. The pinnacle years of young Bruce Wayne. Creatively sassy, classy pangothic characters essence is superb. It's almost taken to a brother Grimm es-ck poetic sophisticated twisted realism. If you relished in the literacy world of Batman: Arkham City (comic book) this show will capture the visual spectrum absolute.

    Judging by the reviews, one either loves this series or they hate it. I stand under the latter. I sort of hope that the League of Shadows/Assassins come into play at some point, because I'd like to see anyone try to argue, like Bruce did in Batman Begins, that there are good people in the city who are worth saving. Right now the worst criminal element in Gotham are the cops. How seriously are we to take the crime here?



    It makes sense that someone would try to do something about all the corruption on their own. But the fact that we're already witnessing a Gotham so bloodthirsty for justice that the people will idolize a guy who outright murders people in horrifying ways sort of paints a rather nasty picture of the normal citizenry too. The more and more Gotham is shown as a cesspool from every perceivable angle, the harder it is to care about anything or anyone. Why would a normal good person want to live in Gotham? Wouldn't it be easier to pack your bags and move down south? I live in Florida. The sun shines here. There's fun in Florida. Not so in Gotham. Gotham is not a fun city. Maybe it's time for little Bruce to take his10 year Sabbatical and leave the city right now. That would make me happy. So, outside of Gordon, who is worth saving on this show? Maybe Harvey Dent will tell us in the next episode. To be continued ...



    By the way, is it fair for spam, like the one below me with the header, "Awesome Game," to rank tv shows? Is this how the game is played, balanced and misrepresented? Gee, this sight needs better security.moreless

    Having watched 8 episodes of Gotham, I've already lost any excitement I had and am unlikely to watch any more. First of all, it's boring. Really, really boring. It may have a big budget, yet it seems aimed squarely at the kids. Secondly, it's already playing fast and loose with the character's back-stories. Thirdly, and this is the one that really spoils it for me, it suffers from the same problem I had with Smallville in that it makes the world of Gotham appear very, very small.



    In Smallville we are supposed to believe that Clark Kent had constant interaction with many of his future allies and enemies before he became Superman, and before he moved to Metropolis. There is already a lot of suspension of disbelief required in order to fully enjoy superhero stories but having the bulk of DC heroes and villains actually grow up together is ridiculous.



    Unfortunately Gotham suffers the same fate. Seeing the Riddler, Penguin, Poison Ivy, Catwoman et al in this prequel setting makes Gotham seem like an awfully small place. In the comics these characters are of varying ages, become criminals at different points in their life and are not necessarily Gotham natives. Which seems a little more realistic to me than having them all essentially grow up together.



    Gotham City was a hell-hole, a modern day wild west frontier town being slowly strangled to death by corruption and mobsters. Villains would take on secret identities and wear masks in order to evade capture. It wasn't until Batman became Batman that the era of the super villain began. Batman had crippled organized crime allowing a new breed of (themed) psychopath to sit at the top table. The Nolan films touched on this theme of escalation and how Batman himself is somewhat responsible. Gotham does away with all of this.



    Gotham is totally unbelievable to me that all these villains spend their whole lives inside it.moreless

    Gotham "Lovecraft" Review: Two Peas in a Very Dangerous Pod

    A league of assassins (the League, perhaps? What do we think?) descended on Wayne Manor, Alfred kicked SO MUCH ASS, and Bruce took off with Selina for a tour of Gotham's seedy underbelly.

    This latest visit to Gotham wasn't nearly as exciting as the ones that preceded it.
