Yesterday one of my most anticipated show of this year came out. Gotham, a show taking place in the infamous city of Gotham where batman is known to live in and defend. But in this series, we take it back to the very day batman started. The day his parents died. On a quiet night in Gotham, after exiting a theater, Martha and Thomas Wayne were mugged and shot to death on crime alley, while their son Bruce watched.

Now you might be wondering how can there be a show without batman? Well, the answer is simple. There is no Batman. This show follows James Gordon a GCPD detective as he tries to free Gotham from its crime reputation, while solving the murders of the Wayne’s. As the show takes place well before our beloved Dark Knight, we get to take a look at our most favorite villains and their origin stories.


At the heart of the show it is a gritty crime drama, but with all the things we love about Gotham mixed into it. And the Pilot shines at showing this. With great crime lords, like Falcone and Fish Mooney, and a great lead like James Gordon had me interested through the whole 60 minutes. With a crime ruled city, James must deal with corruption and choosing to do the right thing. He will later find out you must do the wrong thing to do the right. The Pilot had a few flaws but was good enough to keep me wanting more, and Im sure it will only get better. Maybe this will soon become in my Nostalgic list…
