You Have Been Watching… GOTHAM
SFX’s Facebook and Twitter users pass judgement on the Bat- prequel
It’s been all about Penguin for me. He’s ace. MORE PENGUIN!
Enjoyed the first episode but it’s getting less interesting with each passing week. It’s really little more than another police procedural show, and doesn’t seem sure whether it wants to be gritty or camp.
Like it, but it’s no wonder Batman can beat his enemies. By the time he’s 20, they’ll all be pensioners.

I think it is an interesting new take on a story that everyone on the planet must know by now. I do enjoy spotting the future Batvillains, though.
The writers have no clue what to do with certain villains because there’s no Batman. They need to commit to making this about said villains, and build up to a desperate need for the Dark Knight. If they go with the adult and mature, like the Batman games, they could be on to a winner.
I love how they are slowly drip feeding Oswald into the series arc. Great writing and respect for the character.
I would much rather have seen Gotham Central as a TV show. Actually have Batman around, but not in the show, like an urban legend.
Terrible acting, too many shoehorned- in references and it’s a Batman series without Batman. Too many liberties taken with some characters. OTT and camp yet takes itself far too seriously – future Gotham kingpin The Penguin just murders a bloke for a sandwich?
