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.

Trivia

Outstanding quotes from Gotham Special "The Legend Reborn" before the Series Premiere:
  • Danny Cannon (Executive Producer) - What the show looks at is why a town like that will eventually need a vigilante to help them? What makes a town so crazy? what makes a town so out of control that villains begin to wear costumes?
  • Geoff Johns (Chief Creative Officer) - So, you meet this young detective who is out to uncover corruption and do the right thing in a city that doesn't necessarily want you to do the right thing or need you to do the right thing.
  • Ben McKenzie - When we start the series, James is more or less straight out of the military. Has not been in Gotham in a decade or more. He left when he was a kid. He's a little bit of a fish out of water. He doesn't exactly know what's going on in Gotham, and he's figuring it out moment to moment....He'll make mistakes, he'll trust the wrong people, follow his heart, and at times that will lead him into dangerous situations.
  • Bruno Heller (Executive Producer) - As an actor, that's a very relatable place to start. Ben McKenzie is perfect for the role of Gordon because he has a kind of natural integrity and strength an old-fashioned set of values that really shines through his performance.

Nygma-Stic
22 October 2015 | by callmeamanSee all my reviews

Gotham is basically about how Jim Gordan along with his accomplices solve homicide crimes, etc. If you think it's about Batman, you're wrong.

I was skeptical to watch this show, as I thought since Batman would not be there, it'll be boring. Well, I found it later I was so wrong. So Wrong. It got me hooked on.

I watched a couple of episodes and it wasn't too bad. I started watching more episodes, then I loved it. You really don't need Batman actually. Many villains come such as the Penguin, etc are there in the show . Penguin is portrayed by Robin Taylor ( Oswald Cobblepot ) . He surely deserves an Emmy for his acting. I also loved the acting of Cory Michael Smith ( Edward Nygma ) . He's bit a weird though, with all his strange riddles. Nonetheless, he is great. Ben Meckenzie did a good job in portraying Jim Gordon . I think the acting of Jada Smith was a bit too much. Sometimes it was just too bad but at times it was good.

Well, I must say Gotham is a very promising show. I simply LOVE it. I hope they also renew for many more seasons. Again, I would suggest you to watch at least the first three episodes.
