What’s it about
Season Four of GOTHAM will witness the emergence of the criminal landscape for which Gotham City is best known, with GCPD Detectives Jim Gordon and Harvey Bullock at the forefront of the fight against the most depraved and unhinged villains. While Gotham City fights for normalcy, a new hero will rise, as Bruce Wayne begins to assume responsibility for the city’s well-being.
This is now my most favorite show EVER. As a huge Batman fan and DC Comics fan….This is the BEST rendition ever of the comic.
The character development is the best I have ever seen. Their personalities are spot on w/ the Batman series characters. Without saying so, you began to see who is who. It is so fascinating to see how they grow into their roles, especially Bruce Wayne. The actors are amazing and some of the best in the industry, I feel now. Some I had never heard of before. I feel this series is FAR better than the movies put out….the actors most certainly are. The Movie actors are tired and worn out. This is fresh talent that far surpasses what we have seen in the movies. What I find most fascinating is the writers/directors ability to have Gotham cross various time periods all at once and it not be weird or confusing. At times, it feels like they are in the 20’s. Other times the 50’s, 70’s, 80s and then other times present time. Little tidbit: If you love old cars, esp gangster type cars, there are some super cool ones.
I’ve only seen 1 episode, and I can already tell that they have done a 100% seamless job of creating Batman in this series. It’s so much better than the typical “origin” type stories, including any other Batman series (regardless of the medium: comics, movies, tv). Nope. This one actually rings true to how these characters came to be–especially Batman! In “The Gentle Art of Making Enemies”, I really felt like Bruce was a nice little boy, in a lot of danger…who could be Batman. Who would’ve thought someone could have pulled THAT off? Nice job. Oh, and I love how quick each new confrontation Bruce has with bad guys, especially Mr. Pen. Somehow the brevity makes it actually rather threatening. I can see why Mr. Pen is actually frightened. There’s no bluffing around, silly cliche good guy talk. It’s GOOD!
As in previous seasons this series is only getting better in this season. Though it will probably never lead to Batman actually on the streets in the suit and fighting crime but, more likely will lead to the final episode ending as we saw in Smallville, though, I wouldn’t mind if it did. The journey there has been a ride. The actors are skilled and precise and have developed real and immersive characters that keep you watching each episode and leave you needing more. That is the way you make a series. I have to thank the cast and crew for such amazing work. I will follow this series to the final episode.
Gotham is the best interpretation of the comic books world I have come across. Series 1 starts in near reality each episode moves further and further into the bizarre. Series 4 now has established characters and the stories continue to be unique and surprising. The acting is simply outstanding. I like that the focus remains on Gordon and how he struggles to find his way in a system plagued with corruption. There is so much reality in the script, and Gotham has established such a rich parallel world to our own, that the idea of capes and masks somehow just doesn’t seem that far fetched.
