Re: Gotham (FOX)

I was hesitant about trying any new shows this year, but I just had to see what they would do with this...I actually watched and re-watched, since a friend of mine said his son shouted out all the villians while watching...I thought, oops, I only caught a couple of them, so I had to re-watch...They could go a few different ways with this, and I'm interested to see them do it...

I'm in...
(and please don't cancel, just because I like this show)

This has been the best series premiere I've seen. I loved it all!

As you all have mentioned, great casting of all the characters. And, the addition of Jada Pinkett Smith as Fish Mooney, will be a pleasant new character.

I'm really going to enjoy, Gotham!

9MM, you hit the nail on the head. I was trying to come up with a word or phrase for the whole feel of the series, and graphic novel is perfect.

Thanks Cmdr Spock for putting a name to the former Ms. Gordon. I remember watching reruns of Batman, and getting a major crush on her back in the day.

Re: Gotham (FOX)

The Penguin actor seems good. If the comedian on the stage with Fish is the Joker, well, that seems a little weak. I do like Barbara, though.

I definitely took the comedian on stage as the future "Joker", Soup. Oh, and I'm trying to remember what happened to the Penguin in the comics that turned him into the character? When Gordon shot over his head and pushed him into the river, I assumed the toxins within the river caused his transformation.

We'll find out what happens in this "Gotham" version.

Here is what I found on wiki regarding the Penguin

Quote:
Born Oswald Chesterfield Cobblepot, the Penguin was bullied as a child for his short stature, weight, and beak-like nose. In some media, his fingers are fused, resulting in flipper-like hands. Several stories relate that he was forced as a child to always carry an umbrella by his overprotective mother due to his father's death from pneumonia after a drenching. His mother owns pet birds that Cobblepot lavishes with attention, and served as his only friends growing up. His love for birds would eventually lead him to obtaining an Ornithology major in college
Apparently he's smart with a college degree.

Re: Gotham (FOX)

9MM, thanks for that.

It's been so long since I've read a comic, are they still printed on papyrus?

I wasn't a big Batman comic reader, but I didn't know that the Penguin ever actually underwent a transformation like Joker. He was more of a mastermind. I think his near-death experience, when added to his passive-aggressive criminal base, drove him to murder. His transformation may have started when he kicked the poor guy they were beating in the alley in this story.

Re: Gotham (FOX)

I enjoyed the pilot episode a lot. Definitely the best new show I've seen this season. Lots of mysteries to be revealed and good characters and moving parts interacting. I thought the Riddler was the CSI guy, not the on stage guy.

You ma be right, Soup. As I mentioned above, it's been a long time since I've read a comic.

Damn, I may have to do a rewatch, I don't remember the CSI guy. But I said the on stage guy will end up as the Joker.

Re: Gotham (FOX)

I liked the premiere. Wondering when The Penguin will return?
Kinda agree in hoping that the young comic will not become The Joker.
Then again anyone cast in that role's got HUGE purple & green shoes to fill!
