Storyline

In crime ridden Gotham City, Thomas and Martha Wayne are murdered before young Bruce Wayne's eyes. Although Gotham City Police Department detectives, James Gordon, and his cynical partner, Harvey Bullock, seem to solace's the case quickly, things are not so simple. Inspired by Bruce's traumatized desire for justice, Gordon vows to find it amid Gotham's corruption. Thus begins Gordon's lonely quest that would set him against his own comrades and the underworld with their own deadly rivalries and mysteries. In the coming wars, innocence will be lost and compromises will be made as some criminals will fall as casualties while others will rise as super villains. All the while, young Bruce observes this war with a growing obsession that would one day drive him to seek his own justice against the evil of Gotham as The Batman.

Not bad, but.........
22 January 2021 | by redx1708See all my reviews

The main problem with IMDB ratings is that people often throws 10 at shows just because they like them. So yes, I enjoyed Gotham, but rating it 10 is just as absurd as some people rating it 1. I think that the most accurate way of rating shows is not going from 10 and down, but to start at 5 which should be considered average. Now Gotham is clearly above average, but it's not without flaws. Most of the acting is good, in a few cases even very good, but in other cases really bad. And then there's the question about how the show holds up quality over 100+ episodes. As we all know most series show a decline in quality the longer they run, and Gotham is no exception. 1st season was very good and the 2nd and 3rd were pretty much ok too, but already in 2nd season there were signs of the writers having trouble coming up with fresh ideas, and that trend became more and more obvious as the show went on. Again, this is a show worth watching, but I think 7 is a fair overall rating.
