Special delivery from Fox.
I’m so bummed about this show. I’ve heard negative rumours about everything from the weave of the story, to tearing up a lot of the established lore.
This is the show that I need. My ex and I even considered writing a few episodes of the exact same concept for funsies because we were too excited about it existing.
I kind of wish they didn’t go back in time, to young Bruce (and whomever that Poison Ivy girl is. Wat.) A cop drama in an ESTABLISHED setting. With established conflict, and in an established certified crazy-division with quick glances of a flowing cape over the rooftops. Because Batman wouldn’t be central to the story, he’d just be this other external force that the station had to deal with. Another wild-card, dividing a station in an already divided city.
It seems kind of a missed opportunity to not have the dangerous, complex world of Gotham explored from their perspective. I don’t think I’m as excited about pre-Batman Gotham.
But I watch it with open mind, and maybe I’ll be pleasantly surprised.
