I wish young justice came back. Cartoon network pisses me off...They need to bring back the DC Nation block instead of playing back to back unfunny bullshit.

You aren't the only one. If we could get Young Justice back and pretend TT GO never happened, I'd be the happiest man in the world.

After watching YJ, I always wondered how the DCU would fair if had another go at different shows that shared the same universe (Like the original Batman, Superman, JLU, Batman Beyond, and Static Shock cartoons)

 

You'd have the original team (Young Justice) in one show. The Justice League in their own. The newer members of the team forming the Titans (this idea can be seen in my sig). And give solo shows to heroes like Batman, Superman, ect.

 

It'd be cool seeing crossovers and how events in one series could affect the others. Examples:

 

- Barry Allen dies in Justice League. Go to the Titans series and you have Bart coping with his grandfather's death

- Damian Wayne and Supergirl join their respective families but are also members of the Titans or YJ

- Crossover Events like Crisis on Infinite Earths, Technis Imperative, and Blackest Knight, ect.

 

If we can get a shared Universe in the films, I wanna see if the same can be done for the TV series again

Justice League Unlimited has a good run, I'd say as did Teen Titans. I am happy with all the great stuff we got during that period. I don't really care about Young Justice though.  One of those things that other people love but I couldn't get into.  

 

 

You aren't the only one. If we could get Young Justice back and pretend TT GO never happened, I'd be the happiest man in the world.

I thought that Gotham got off to a good start with this opening episode. 

 

We got to see the Riddler, Penguin, Catwoman, and Poison Ivy in their younger days. 

 

While I didn't instantly start liking the person playing Detective Gordon in this episode, I did find his portrayal of Gordon to be decent by the end of the episode.

 

The main thing that I liked about this episode was the ending to the show, where we are shown how the underworld has a major influence in the events regarding all classes of society. 

 

Gordon now has to start thinking about how he is plans to restructure the police department while being careful not to anger the crime bosses of the underworld.

I hope they stick more to Gordon's story with the mob and Fish Mooney and all that jazz rather than catering to fanboys with all of these batman references. I mean...as of right now-

 

Spoiler

 

I hate batman stories that tie every single villain to the origin story of batman. Its just not realistic. Whats next. Mr. Freeze bought the fenced pearls of bruce wayne's mom for Nora?

Also something about the show just seems really cheap to me, though some of the more graphic bits seemed to be pretty well done. A lot of cheap, energetic cuts and quick jumpy editing though. Bad unintelligible music. Little to no breathing room. Cheesy title card, etc.

 

I could just be nitpicking. So far a lot of people like it from what I can tell. Certified fresh on rotten tomatoes. Maybe im just too knowledgeable a bat fan lol

 

either way im willing to stick with it. I like a handful of characters and I like some of the dialogue. Just not a fan of the direction.

In the end I just hope they make this show more about Gordon and less about "Gotham Jr."

I was too at first but now I've decided that I'm not interested. No Batfamily, no care-y. I'm having a hard time trying to figure out what makes it stand out from your typical cop drama.

Judging by everyone's reaction, it looks like this show is going to be exactly the kind of mess I had a feeling it was going to be.  

A friend of mine made an interesting observation; this show is mainly going to appeal to people whose only exposure to Batman are the Nolan movies and as he pointed out, a lot of people are praising it for not being campy as if people expect a campy Batman after 4 decades of a dark Batman.

Did not like Gotham.

I knew this would be a different take on the concept of Batman, but the lack of respect with which this series shows the source material is hard to take.

 TBF, Joker, Riddler and Penguin have all looked middle aged under the pen of some artists. Penguin is supposed to be middle aged in the comics.  So their ages in this one doesn't bother me much. Riddler and Joker have had receding hairlines in some comics. 

Things to look out for in the next few episodes:  

1) What is so interesting about doing a series about a prepubescent Batman, Poison Ivy and Catwoman? What kind of stories can be told with them at that age and is it interesting? 

2) What kind of storylines can be done with a Jim Gordon and Harvey Bullock at that age and in time, we know Gotham is going to be shit by the time Bruce puts on the cowl so what is the deal?  

3) Does the show say anything new or interesting about the characters?  

4) How many balant foreshadowing and shout outs are we going to get hit over the head with in each episode?  

5) How long is this show going to last?

If this show is going to be good Gordon cannot clean up gotham. It might seem like he is but he should fail hard cleaning it.

 

If the writers are smart they would show Gordon destorying the old mobs and opening the way for the likes of penguin.  With Batman and Poison Ivy they need to show there growth. A small bruce wayne winning martial arts tournaments and getting straight A's in school, or something on those lines. Showing poison ivy with a green thumb and have people around her betray her. (because poison ivy like plants more then people)

In the next riveting episode of Gotham: Bruce Wayne must pass his Science exam or he will flunk for the whole semester! Meanwhile, will Pepper Isley finally grow a pair of roses and take the 'nice' Mr. Woodrue's hand? Also, will Gordon finally pick out the right pair of glasses, find out the exciting reason for he decides to wear them (not really because he would back to normal and not wearing glasses at all by the end of the season but we had you going didn't we?)!
