I am loving the idea behind this show. To see the story behind Gotham before Batman, a story that is never really told at length and only hinted at, I’m excited to see what they do with it. Also, I like that they’re focusing on the villains’ stories along with Batman’s. I’ve always wondered, “What’s the story behind how the Penguin was raised?”…Or the Joker?! Oh man…now, that’s epic if they bring in the joker. Unfortunately though, Heath Ledger created the best Joker I’ve ever seen or read about in any Batman comics, books, or movies soooo..it might not be as interesting as I’m hoping. But hey, you never know. Maybe FOX won’t mess this up too bad.
And Ben McKenzie…didn’t see that one coming.
