Gotham satisfies both longtime Batman fans and newcomers

Title: Gotham

Image from: imdb.com

Starring: Donal Logue and Ben McKenzie

Plot: The show takes place right after two members of the wealthiest family in Gotham City; the Waynes, have been murdered, leaving their son Bruce alone. New detective James Gordon (McKenzie) has just moved to Gotham and plans to rid the city of its corrupt leaders.

Why see it:  The show is very well done. It is influenced heavily by the Batman graphic novels. The scenery of Gotham is dark, muggy and makes you feel like the city has been destroyed by crime. The acting is great which makes you feel attached to the characters and their cause, for example James Gordon’s fight to make the city better. We see a lot of people who will later become villains in the Batman series in their younger stages. One of the people is Oswald Cobblepot, a gang leader’s servant who later becomes the Penguin. We start to see the G.C.P.D stand up to the gang leaders they were once scared of. Overall the show has many great things ahead for it and pleases both fans of Batman as well as new comers.

Rating: ★★★★☆
