I liked Gotham a lot, personally.

Of course you do. The majority of characters are emotionally broken from the beginning :P

@surkit: Yeah they laid the foreshadowing on with a trowel. Its forced and way over the top.

Then again, what do they really have without it. A barely noir cop drama.

@surkit: Wore the flag on my main charecter for like 2-3 years lol. Union jack is boss though.

Don't count. I wanna see tea and Crowns. Big Bens and cherrios in bowlers. Double brimmed hats and dentistry degree at the local annex.

@strigidae_23: I understand what your saying, and I'm impressed. Thats a perspective I didn't even think of. The Uncle Ben thing rounded it off for me.

They tried to make the point that it was random and not from in Wayne's world in the end of the episode with Falconi, least it seems, that the shiny shoes thing was just a bad plot device to make you think maybe it was a hit.

It looks what they are really trying to do is say 'we're not in Nolan's verse. I'm not Nolan, this isn't Nolans POV.' But they're being too obnoxious and idk...naive about it. Like they think hitting the points he didn't will make them equally as memorable by filling the gaps he left open.

Plus the foreshadowing is already proving to be too heavy

"Why were you on the roof?"

"I'm trying to conquer fear."

twenty years later

:"Commissioner, I'm Batman"

Gordon: "No, your Bruce Wayne"

Future Bat: "What?! How did you-"

Gordon: "You were a creep kid who stood on roofs then and your a creep man who stands on roofs now. Next question."

Shit I'd rather watch an Alfred travels the world prequel.

@strigidae_23: I get you. They use the pillars of their U's to set them selves on top of, yet it never works when they do because they don't build their own characters with respect. Instead of coming off as equally interesting as superheroes they sell them as not as good. So why do a show about them, why sell lesser characters as such instead of making them shine?

Assuming by young you mean Oldman's version of young in Begins, I like that. Combining both would be interesting. We've got the begrudgingly accepting help from him because of a constant time constraint by the criminals at large of the week (main plot).

Doesn't stop him from doing his job and keeping the investigation open on who the Bat is.(subplot)

We came up with a better show in fifteen minutes.

@cassius_knightfall: Alfred was okay. He didn't really have enough scenes for them to screw him up though lol.

I hated him. Kept comparing him to Movie Alfred and he'll never compare xD

Man I'm hopin so much they have him team up with Gordon before the end of this season that I know is gonna get canceled.

lol Ivy...most useless foreshadowing.

@surkit: I'm okay with them changing the characters a little and I could handle the constant pointless namedropping.. except the rest of the show isn't good either. Some of those lines are cringe inducing and everything seems completely forced. Not forced a little bit, but completely, one hundred percent unnatural.

I agree, which is sad because the concept has potential. You'd think they would have learned from birds of prey.

They even failed when it came to the city itself, it's just NY under filters.

Wouldn't it have been dope if they went the route of present day Gotham based around the GCPD and Batman every few episodes dropping some evidence off to further lesser cases.
