Lets face facts, if these shows didn't feature characters from comic books, nobody would watch them and everybody would just be admonishing the shows for being corny CW productions.
Are you talking about Gotham?
Well, I specifically talking about the CW programs, but yes, Gotham is also an example. I have never really see the show but from what I have read and seen about it is just a more cartoony detective show with pointless nods at the Batman comics. The one episode I did see they were investigating a guy who kills people by tying them to balloons (seriously)......and in the episode, a guy had to explain to the two detectives how balloons worked.......I'll say that again....some guy who was an expert on balloons I suppose(??) had to explain to two grown, middle aged men, that are also police detectives, how balloons work.....
... I am so glad I stopped watching Gotham.
