Gotham: "Pilot" (Season 1, Episode 1)


So who's up to see Thomas and Martha Wayne killed yet again? Twenty-fourth time's a charm, or so I'm told.

Surprisingly, Gotham isn't bad for TV. What it lacks in narrative originality it tends to make up in nice visuals. For every bit of pithy dialogue there is a matching clunker, but there might be possibilities here if the conceit of a young, non-Bat Bruce Wayne and a bunch of precursor Bat villains doesn't run out of gas.
