TV Show: Gotham (Season 1)
This is a show that is reasonably unknown, but it is quite a surprise! Gotham is a live action TV show that takes place right after Bruce Wayne’s parents were killed. The show mainly focuses on the GCPD (Gotham City Police Department) and Jim Gordon.
The whole premise of the show is introducing younger versions of villans you already know. The first season was merely okay due to it’s VERY large focus on the 2 main mob lords in Gotham.
The show doesn’t have a star studded cast, which happily is part of the reason this show shines. Ben McKenzie is a perfect Jim Gordon and does a phenomenal job of bringing a darker tone to Jim Gordon’s character. Also, Robin Lord Taylor does an amazing job playing Oswald Cobblepot aka Penguin. You get so hooked into the cops and villans war that you almost forget about Bruce Wayne! I must admit he is a supporting character in this show despite what you’d expect.
If you are a fan of Batman, you will enjoy this show, even though it does not focus on Bruce Wayne as much. It has a wickedly dark tone with stellar acting from all involved.
As always, thanks for reading, and enjoy!
