Adolescent Bruce Wayne sees his doting parents shot by a mugger. Sleezy murder squad lieutenant Harvey Bullock fails to dump the case on organized crime because of eager 'rookie' James Gordon but changes his mind when they offer to take it on anyhow. The stole pearl string is found is petty robber Mario Pepper's home, but they soon suspect the mugging to be staged and the trail leads to local mob head Fish Mooney, from Carmine Falcone's 'family'. The whole affair is clouded by the devious power struggle within the mob, which proves dangerous for the detectives too. Written by KGF Vissers

Nice and dark
14 October 2014 | by blunttalkSee all my reviews

Good twist on an popular story line. Characters are strong and acting is well done with the exception of Jada Smith. Hopefully her role will get reduced in the future or she will only be used to introduce stronger characters. It gives a nice back story to the time between the Wayne murders and the arrival of a super hero to save the day. In the mean time Gordon walks a fine line desperately trying to keep the city afloat. One of the best new shows to take place this year. Don't expect your typical comic book story line. In light of how all other 'hero saves the day' shows use of light humor, this one is unique in that omission. A true drama.
