Gotham looks neato

They just did a trailer for Gotham during 24. It looked pretty good.
Sorta like a rip off of the trailer History chan. ran during Vikings about Hitler, Roosevelt, Stalin, Churchill. How WW1 molded them into the men the world knew in WW2.

I think Gotham might be a must watch, that is until the first episode airs, then we'll see.

Thanks to USA and the other networks, I'm fine with 13 eps. If that helps keep the production value high, and the possibility of renewal at better odds.

Now we know why Almost Human was canned. I want to watch this, but I won't, because fox will certainly cancel this as well. If it airs 3 seasons, I will be shocked. If it does, I'll use alternate means to watch it all at once.

Yep. I'm watching that. I think it's an odd choice to showcase all the kiddie criminals but I'll give them the benefit of the doubt. That was an awesome trailer.

They gave the part to the guy known for The OC?

In Southland he was easily the worse actor in the cast. Hell, Lucy Liu was only in one season and she eclipsed him.

I foresee a high production value show with bad writing that will be cancelled after one season. In short: the FOX method.

It's not so much that it keeps production values high, but that it keeps the storyline tight.

So many shows go off on crazy tangents just to "fill time" when you're on a 22 episode series.

Honestly I would have been interested in just a crime/action show that focused on Gordon without Bruce or the villains thrown in there. Honestly a series about Gotham without Batman kind of sounds like Caprica conceptually though, and we all know how that worked out...

I wish it wasn't on Fox. I am really enjoying Arrow on the CW, but I don't think it would have survived on Fox.

Agreed. CW/MTV seem to be nice places to run such shows.

I'm just surprised that Warner didn't keep this property on The CW put back to back with Arrow.

The trailer looks great, I'm in.

I don't get what you guys are saying about The CW though. If it was on that network, wouldn't it be all teenagers and love triangles?

I'd rather it be great and end after one season than suck and go on forever.

CW seems to be home to DC and "super heroes". Smallville, Arrow, Beauty and the Beast *yawn*, The tomorrow people *why oh why was this canceled?*, soon to be Flash.

Where as Fox seems to be home to "intellectual" sci-fi. X-Files, Fringe, Sleepy Hollow.

Gonna wait for a few episodes and see how this show plays out. Right now it seems like Muppet Babies meets DC Comics.

Yeah, I'm not sure about it either but at least they are making the effort.

Setting it to precede the Bat almost automatically degenerates it into a cop show and possibly little else,.....

We'll see though,....

Yeah. A cop show with an Arrow feel.

I guess,....

I don't really watch Arrow (although I have seen a few episodes).

The feeling I get is one of promise. Sort of like how one kind of expects to see dragons, White Walkers and a nice pair of boobs in a season of Game of Thrones but in reality only get a short few glimpses,...if you're lucky,...

Seemingly there is no such promise of seeing the Bat in Gotham whereas Arrow definitely has Oliver Queen and some incarnation of Green Arrow (I still somewhat remember reading the origin story in comic form).

However, Gotham does look like it has some interesting character driven stuff. Hopefully its enough,...

I'm not sure how good it's going to be, but I'm sure I'll be watching when it airs. I think it has a lot of potential.
