With splendid acting, good characterization, and fine overall direction, Gotham is a serviceable Batman prequel but, like Smallville beforehand, just isn’t engrossing or exciting enough without the presence of its titular crimefighter to anchor it. 7.2/10.
Plot Synopsis: James Gordon is a rising detective in the dangerously corrupt Gotham City, where his late father was a successful district attorney. Brave, honest and determined to prove himself, Gordon must navigate the dirty politics of Gotham’s justice system as well as the rise of malevolent villains, including The Penguin, The Riddler and Catwoman. The series also chronicles the life of young Bruce Wayne, who becomes an orphan when his billionaire parents Thomas and Martha Wayne are murdered. Gordon becomes a friend to young Bruce as he finds his way toward becoming the iconic caped crusader.
