'Gotham' Is Coming... Who Is Ready?


'Gotham' is something that I am looking forward too, but I am very wary for. Why you ask? Simple. While it is a great idea (a cop procedural set in the early days of the Batman universe), the show is on Fox. Fox, known as the channel that often kills any genre shows they air (whether they are good or not). So while I think the show can be intriguing, the fact that it is on Fox puts a strike on it for me because even if it is good it will probably get bailed on. Lets hope Fox finally sees that genre shows are huge right now and give this show a fair shot. The trailer for the show is here, and I am intrigued. Most peoples criticism that I have encountered so far is the inclusion of young versions of Riddler, Catwoman, and Penguin... but to me that is one of the cooler aspects of it. And a young Master Bruce... yup, I can get behind that. Anytime Donal Logue is involved in a project I am in. Ben McKenzie looks pretty great as a young Jim Gordon. And a mob boss that is a chick (Jada Pinkett Smith)? Yup, that is bold. The shows tone looks good, and since I am an ultimate Bat-fan I will give it a shot. But with the gauntlet being thrown down by Arrow (it has been great since episode 1 through two full seasons) and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (which started slow but has picked up immensely) Gotham better bring the A game. The show comes on this fall on Fox. Check out the trailer after the jump...
