Gotham television series......Let's chat!

So I caught the pilot episode of Gotham, and so far I like it. The introduction of the characters is well paced, and I think the concept of the show has room for growth (..considering that many of the characters are in their youth). Did any of you catch the pilot? Any thoughts/opinions?

I saw it. Thought it was decent. Nothing earth shattering though. Felt kind of rushed.

That's how I felt about The Strain, but it picked up momentum. I'm hoping this show mirrors that.

it's okay, kinda agree with stankia. jada pinkett was a bad choice for that character.

curious to see how Flash on CW turns out though I never got into Arrow.

It won't last. Like most Fox shows, it will suffer from bad writing and a reliance of casting late 90's celebrities. Think Terminator The Sarah Connor Chronicles.

Fox died to me when they canceled Alcatraz. I can't help but notice how many new shows they turn out each year through promotions airing during Sunday football. I don't feel they have much vested in new shows anymore now than hoping the ratings are enough for it to be picked up for a second season. If it flops they have 10 more ideas ready to be green-lit. They know they have viewership with sports, Idol, and Sunday animation.

This is what I'm hoping doesn't happen. I liked the pilot episode but I do think they should have stretched out the villains introductions a bit. Right off the bat we know who the Penguin, Cat Woman, The Riddler and The Joker is. Still enjoyed it though and hope it lasts. I'll be checking out the 2nd episode a little later.

I think it will stick around. They look like they put a lot of money into it, expect at least 2 seasons to see it through

Which dude is The Joker? I think I missed it. I think that there are so many villains in the DC Comics/Batman universe that they had to introduce a few to get the ball rolling. Consider that the season is only 16-ish episodes. I think it was a marketing strategy to throw in a few of the most popular allies/villains to hook audiences.

Agreed! There's a lot of potential here and a considerable amount of potential story arcs.


P.S. I knew the girl who plays Selina Kyle/Catwoman looked familiar. She was on America's Best Dance Crew.

I tried. It was almost painful trying to watch. Couldn't decide if it was the acting or the vague script.

I'm going with the script because many of the people on that show are network TV (...Law & Order SVU, Southland, etc.) and/or big screen movie veterans.

I have been watching it, and I like it, but I can't see it really going anywhere without having to rewrite the Batman story. I just don't see it going anywhere.

Another way to tell the Batman story? Really? I like the overall premise of Batman, but dang, they are really sending this horse to the glue factory.
