TV REVIEW | Gotham Season 1 Episodes 1-3



  • I like the performances for Jim Gordon, Bullock, and Penguin
  • The city itself is like a character in the show.
  • The show feels like Law & Order: Gotham.  ...which is fine by me.


  • The show is packed with cartoony characters which clash with the performances of other characters.
  • Alfred is kind of a jerk.
  • There are WAYYYYY too many Batman references.


  • The tone is all over the map.  It switches between cartoony characters and gritty dark settings.  Well see a goofy moment where someone falls from the sky on another person, and a person getting their eyes clawed out.  
  • Will Smith's wife is TERRIBLE! Just campy over-the-top over acting with a horrific accent.
  • There's an absurd forced lesbian subplot that services no purpose other than to have a lesbian subplot.

RATING - I'm going to keep watching, but I'm worried.
