Gotham (2014 - 2019) 1x01 Reviewed

Pilot
Selina Kyle walks around the city posing and stealing. She also witnesses Thomas and Martha Wayne being murdered as they walk through a dark and dingy alley. This has no continuity to ‘Batman Begins’. Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie of ’The OC’) and Harvey Bullock investigate. Alfred (Sean Pertwee) takes care of Bruce letting everyone know how East End he is. The title card is iffy and exposition rains down.

Ed the GCPD CSI is the future Riddler. Fish (Jada Pinkett Smith of ‘Scream 2’) is a mob boss and her sidekick is Oswald (Robin Lord Taylor) the future Penguin. Crime operates with impunity in Gotham. Gordon’s soon to be wife Barbara is boring and that is incontestable. Oswald utters hate filled diatribes. Gordon and Bullock have laughably macho angst and neither is keen on being liked.

The future Poison Ivy shows up as a kid. The Major Crimes Unit sneer. Oswald snitches. A mob war is coming. Gordon asks the relevant question: why were the Waynes killed? Barbara has a past with MCU cop Montoya. There is violence, Fish annoys and Falcone looms. Gordon has to pretend to be part of the corruption in order to clean it up. Gordon really should have killed Oswald though. Bruce Wayne is one messed up annoying kid. Oswald kills someone and Gordon plan to clean up the GCPD. This was okay.

Best Lines:
“Next time, shoot the son of a bitch.”

“You had to go and be disrespectful.”

“You understand?”
“No.”

“Was that screaming we heard back there?”
“Yes. My boys were watching a scary movie.”
“Really?”
“No.”

“I’ve done nothing.”
“So it’ll be a pleasant talk.”

“May I ask why?”
“No.”

“There are rules.”

“There will be chaos.”

“Don’t ever come back to Gotham.”

“Sterling work there mate.”
