Batman fans, unite! “Gotham” has just premiered, and oh my Lord is it nice. I am not a Batman fan by any way, shape, or form, but that’s the good thing about this show. It’s not about Batman, necessarily; it is more about the origin stories and just general bad-assery of James Gordon. I’m going to point out something that everyone I was watching it with said. The budget for this show must be huge. Each and every scene done in this show is just great. Every time the show spans over Gotham, it looks absolutely amazing. Usually, the visuals of a show will be the last thing I notice, but its very apparent that they are working extremely hard to make this look as amazing as they possibly can. Now. I know what you all really want to hear about. Is the show actually matched up with the Batman universe, comic-wise? No, not really. Yes, you have the general idea of why the villains are evil, but they are not the original comic back stories. Take The Penguin and Poison Ivy, for example. The origins that the show gives them aren’t the real thing. I’m not going to go into their real origins. What really matters is the show. I’m trying to judge this show on its own than as something from the Batman comic universe. Some people want this show to be about Bruce Wayne becoming Batman. That’s not the show at all, and I’m sure that’s going to disappoint a lot of people and those who are serious about Batman history. You need to appreciate this show for what it is, not some fantastical adventure with Bruce Wayne. The main character is James Gordon. You are going to learn about his past; deal with it. This is the pilot, so I can’t judge it too harshly. They needed to get everything across, and they did it pretty well. For a pilot the characters really came across how they should have. I have to applaud the actors, they just did their characters so well. The actor for Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz) made me feel things for that character that I have never felt before. I actually care for him, and I felt the feels when his parents died. Then you have James Gordon (Benjamin McKenzie) who is just the epitome of a good cop. The way he performs Gordon is just perfect. You can see the true, good intentions that he has and I love it. I feel like these were the best actors and actresses for the show. Everything about these actors are great. They look right, they sound right, and everything in between. Overall, I’m actually a little excited about the show. I’m not going to fangirl over it, but I’ll definitely be tuning in for the first season. Like I’ve said before, this isn’t about Batman, so if you’re here for that than you’re out of luck. Still though, stick around; I’m sure it’ll be extremely interesting.
