Gotham, the batman show that has many people are split on. Is it a good coming to age story or is it a show that has no sense of identity and is trying too hard to do too much? Maybe it is a bit of both. Is there anything wrong with that? I guess it is up to us as individuals to decide how we feel about it.
One thing is for sure, the show is a far cry from what was pitched to the audience way back when. The show was to be about Jim Gordon coming to Gotham and dealing with the city as it falls apart. We were only supposed to see Bruce on the first episode when his parents are killed. However it really quickly shifted to being an even split between Jim and Bruce.
It has made for some good moments, the ending of season one when Bruce finds out his dad's hidden office was perfect! But the show does throw every villein it can find into the fray. Which is a bit weird seeing as Batman is still a kid. Now they have him hunting down his parents killers and getting closer and closer to being Batman. I love the show and am up for the ride, I just hope they pay attention to where Smallville went wrong. They made him superman in all but name and cape far too soon and the last thing this show needs is a pint sized Batman running around.
