    This series surpassed all my expectations.

    I can't wait for the next season with all the characters they have already introduced or at least hinted.

    The Penguin has been brilliant.

    Yeah I just realized this 30minutes after I posted that. The previous episode that I watched seemed like a clear season ending cliffhanger.

    The Barbara Kean storylines are the only ones that really annoy me..

    This series has exceeded my expectations. Last night's episode was great. Crazy eyeball scene.

    I admit, I was completely wrong. I didn't think this show could be any good without Batman. Plus I didn't think the show could center around Gordan and work.

    For whatever reason the show just works. Glad I gave it a shot.

    Eating my Wheaties with Crow right now.

    I like this show, but the thing I am not a huge fan of is that its like a NCIS type show, with different issues that don't really tie into one thing. Take DareDevil, or Jessica Jones, every episode's issue ties in to the other episodes. Gotham has a new main issue in each episode that has nothing to do with the latest episode's issues, but they throw in something that is tied into one another on the side. Not sure what I am saying is making sense, but I am not a big fan of that type of setup.

    I saw this on netflix months ago and have been avoiding it. But a few days ago I decided to give it a go.
    I have to say I was surprised. I went into it specifically trying to not know anything about the world or the characters.
    I like the darkness, a sort of fifties noir....classic black sedans side by side with modern BMW's.

    I found myself recognizing the characters as they appeared anyway... but more in a "That's gonna be" kinda way.... like when that psycho kid Jerome flipped out for a second and grinned at Gordon..."oh, thats gonna be the Joker"

    I am nearing the end of season one,...Fish just popped her eyeball out last episode.

    I am enjoying this way more than I thought... Kudos to DC for making a good one...I like Flash, but this is head and shoulders above the Legends, lol

    the only part that gets me though....every time I see Jim Gordon it reminds me of a Peter Gabriel music video for some reason

    Ok, this joke still cracks me up. Apparently only me, but that's cool. o_O



    Now that this is on Netflix, I think I'll finally try to check this out. I missed the first season thinking it would be awful, but then lots of people started raving about it.
