Synopsis

Gotham

Before there was Batman, there was GOTHAM. Everyone knows the name Commissioner Gordon.

He is one of the crime world’s greatest foes, a man whose reputation is synonymous with law and order.

But what is known of Gordon’s story and his rise from rookie detective to Police Commissioner?

What did it take to navigate the multiple layers of corruption that secretly ruled Gotham City, the

spawning ground of the world’s most iconic villains? And what circumstances created them

the larger-than-life personas who would become Catwoman, The Penguin, The Riddler, Two-Face and The Joker?

I am actually surprised how much I like this. Its a bit of Goth and a bit of Noir and a bit of Comic-Con rolled in one.

I wasn’t a fan of Smallville, so the idea of Gotham before Batman didn’t really appeal either, at first. Normally it just tastes like barley before its brewed – the story just isn’t ready. But thanks to interesting acting from Ben McKenzie, Donal Logue and especially Robin Taylor (Penguin), Gotham without Batman is still interesting. Bit like a glorified Gothic Law and Order or something..

Robin’s Penguin reinvention is really what I like. Simply way more interesting than the camp clown cliché portrayed by Burgess Meredith or the pervert-raised-by-penguins(wtf…) played by Danny DeVito. Robin Taylor that is, not Robin Grayson LOL.

BTW seeing Sean Pertwee in a decent ongoing role is also interesting.
