    Yesterday Fox officially ordered the series for 13 episodes and released a trailer:

    Thoughts? I think it looks great. Even if DC has no idea what they’re doing movie wise they’re always on their A game with TV minus a few missteps (Lois and Clark, anyone?).

    I liked Lois and Clark lol. This show looks cool. I’m going to give it a shot. It doesn’t work for me I will drop itlike I did Agents of Shield.

    I’m in for anything Batman related. This looks promising and if it’s a hit there are enough characters and storylines to explore for this series to have a long and healthy run.

    Major bump since the series premieres tonight. Out of any of the new shows this fall I’m looking forward to Gotham the most.

    I’ll definitely be checking this one out. Lots of buzz.

    I also saw them filming on the Upper East Side in NYC last week!

    I like both Ben McKenzie and Donal Logue, so I am certainly in for the pilot.  The 70 on Metacritic does not hurt.

    The Rotten Tomatoes critical consensus is “High production values, a talented cast and
    an appealingly stylized approach to the Batman mythos help Gotham
    overcome its occasionally familiar themes.”

    I’m a huge Batman fan, so I’m in. The show looks intresting, because the showrunners of the show described it as more like The Wire than a superhero TV show.

    Give Paul Thomas Anderson an Oscar.

    I hope the show has a kick-ass theme song like the classic Batman: The Animated Series — http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lEx9r5enZsk

     

    I’ll add these cool character posters:

    Pilot review: 

    Ok pilot. Jada Pickett Smith and the actor who plays the Penguin were really good. One thing that really got me mad is that it introduced so many villians in this episode (Riddler, Penguin, Catwoman, Bane, Poison Ivy) I think it would have been better to slowly introduce the villians throughout the series run. The foreshadowing was really crappy, same with the dialouge. But the production design and direction were great. I’m going to stick with this for a while because I really want it to get better.

    Grade: C+     

    Give Paul Thomas Anderson an Oscar.

    This was a good first hour. McKenzie, Logue, and Pinkett Smith were excellent. The production values are solid. I do agree with the criticism about obvious foreshadowing and too many villain introductions. But the show has a solid core with the two leads, and I’m eager to see where this goes.

    The pilot was Ok.  There’s some potential here but a few weak points as well.  Like others have said there’s no need for all of those villains lurking in the background.

    The pilot seemed rushed to me. The same story should have been told over two hours instead of one.

    Apart from the bizarre close-ups of BM running and a musical score that felt out of place at times, I enjoyed the pilot. JPS was much better than I was expecting. DL and RT were excellent as was SP in his brief moments as Alfred. The foundation exists for top shelf entertainment here.

    I didn’t really like the pilot. Liked a few of the perfromances but nothing reallly wowed me.

    I enjoyed the pilot. My complaints are that the fights have way too many cuts, the kid playing Bruce isn’t good, and Selina and Ivy were just there for cameos. I’d rather they save them until they have a purpose. B+

    This really delivered. Best pilot since maybe Homeland. Top notch acting (especially Donal Logue and Jada Pinkett Smith) and production values. I can’t wait to see what happens next.

     

    Perhaps I’m the only one who didn’t mind the villain winks. I don’t know why they changed Poison Ivy’s real name.

     

    Great ratings too!
