Gotham: Pilot Reviews
The entire first episode of Gotham (simply titled “Pilot) was screened for fans at San Diego Comic-con. These are excerpts of some advance reviews for the show. Keep in mind that these are only reviews for the Pilot.
Gotham does work when it spins in the opposite direction and strays from what we’ve become too familiar with.
“But one thing is clear: trying to blend the heightened reality of Tim Burton’s Gotham City with a serious story, serious themes, and serious detectives is a risk. Gotham has the chance to find a balance, but the first episode is already showing that it’s a difficult line to walk.”
- Series creator Bruno Heller has confirmed that the Joker is part of the long term plans for the show, but that the TV series will take a “slow burn” approach to his reveal. It was previously reported that there would be a potential Joker-candidate in every episode of Gotham, but Heller has since discredited that rumor.
- Despite DC owning both the Green Arrow and Batman characters, don’t expect any crossover between the shows. They are on different networks (Arrow is on CW, and Gotham is on Fox).
- Heller also says that the entirety of season 1 has already been plotted out, and that the show will be serialized.
- Gotham is filmed on location in the “Real Gotham City”: New York City.
- In January, Morena Baccarin(Firefly, Homeland) has joined the cast of Gotham in the pivotal role of Dr. Leslie Thompkins. In the comic books, Thompkins is a doctor that helped run the Wayne family’s homeless shelters and is a dear friend of Bruce Wayne’s.
Starring: Ben McKenzie (James Gordon), Donal Logue (Detective Harvey Bullock), Sean Pertwee (Alfred), Jada Pinkett Smith (Fish Mooney);
First Aired: Monday, September 22nd, 2014
