The first episode of Gotham sucked
Every character seems to be a Batman super villain or a super dramatic person. Also, the stand-up comic is the Joker.
In the opening episode, we meet EVERY person in the Batman universe from Ivy, Catwoman, Penguin, Riddler, Alfred, Gordon, Bullock, Barbara Gordon and Fish Mooney, Falcone and The Joker too.
Why are they calling Falcone(y) “Fal-Cone”?
They keep saying they killed an innocent man, but he was trying to murder a police officer after shooting at him too. Innocent?
The fight scene/chase scene felt forced and senseless. The introduction to Gordon’s character was silly. None of the prisoners behind him moved while 540 cops aimed their guns at the psychopath who wanted “his pills.” I wanted some pills just for watching this show.
Catwoman’s character, pointlessly, was perched on the entrance of Wayne Manor just to be there at the end of that sequence I guess.
This show felt like they just had a checklist of things they needed to include and spent the entire hour checking them off. I hope the show gets better because the first episode? I hated it.
