In a show that lasted for what felt like more than an hour, Gotham started off with a great big bang. Loaded with fresh characters and new info in the ever elusive story revolving around the killings of the great Wayne’s and inevitable rise of Batman.
Fish Mooney (Jada Pinkett Smith) is as slimy as her name. Cat women is just like a cat…always lurking and always watching. And Penguin, well his story on his rise to evilness is just beginning, and no one will stand in his way (limping joke), as Season 1 is said to focus on his story in particular. And the Riddler’s little appearance just begs for questions about when we will see more of him.
And Det. Gordon, as your main character in this series, is a great focal point, as we start to uncover truths about his girlfriend Barbara Kean (who we seem to know more about then he does).
Oh, and was that girl “Ivy” a glimpse at a young Poison Ivy?
So many characters…so many characters to explore…and so many potential seasons just waiting to be written.
Solid show, 8 out of 10, and I will be back for more next week! (BTW, that is a LOT of blood for an 8PM show…)
