So last night I finally gotten around to watching the “Gotham” premiere on FOX. First things first, I would like to say that I was pretty blown away with the show. WOW!!!! The show was freakin’ great and I was pretty impressed with it’s debut episode. The show was actually pretty well written and well-acted by everyone in the cast and that includes Jada Pinkett Smith (Will Smith’s wife). I was pretty impressed with Jada Pinkett’s role and I used to never be a fan of her acting until now. I thought she did a great job. She played a cool villain that you love to hate. She played the evil “bitch” role well. Plus, Jada Pinkett was smoking hot and sexy in her costume.
Yeah, I did catch all of Batman’s super villains. I recognized Penguin, The Riddler, the Joker, Catwoman and Poison Ivy easily.
I know the murder of Bruce Wayne’s parents have been shown many times in all of the Batman big screen movies and animated films but finally we’re gonna get a true back story of Bruce’s childhood which is what this show is about. I’m assuming that this show is leading up to Bruce Wayne growing up and it will show how he became the Batman. When will we a full grown Bruce Wayne in the Batman suit? Not for a long while I would think. If the show is successful and I think it will be, it’ll last for 7-10 seasons or more. This show could be bigger than “Smallville”.
I’m very intrigued with the idea of “Gotham” ’cause for once we get a historical look on the Batman story of how he became Batman and how all the super villains came out to be. In the upcoming show, I hope “Gotham” will show us more super villains of how they were in the beginning like Harley Quinn, Killer Croc, Bane, Mr. Freeze, Ra’s Al Ghul, Scarecrow, Deadshot, etc. I’m sure the show will have them all.
Anyway, this show is not just about Bruce Wayne and how he became Batman, it’s really an introduction of all the super villains. That’s the whole point of it, I believe.
Consider me a fan of the show and I’ll continue to watch every Monday. I’m a huge Batman fan. Always have been ever since I was a child.
So that means I’m currently watching two NEW TV shows right now: “Gotham” and “Dr. Who” w/ Peter Capaldi. “Dr. Who” w/ Capaldi and Jenna Coleman is really good too and I will talk more about that show in another post.
