Fox's GOTHAM Series is Getting Lots of Positive Buzz!

Fox recently screened the pilot episode of their new Batman prequel series Gotham, and the reactions of the lucky few who got to see it were extremely positive! It looks as though this highly anticipated show is actually going to live up to the hype! 

The trailer that was released for this series was incredible. It was so good it gave me the goosebumps. It sounds like that trailer doesn't even do the series justice.

Gotham comes from the mind of Bruno Heller (Rome, The Mentalist), and it tells the story of Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie) and the rise of Gotham's villains and heroes. So here is what people are saying:

Then Collider says:

"This Gotham is grimy and violent, and clearly on its way to being overrun by a criminal element that will quickly be sending it on a downward spiral. It feels much more like the real world heightened than it does a comic book world.

"There are some really heartfelt moments in both the new bond that Bruce Wayne forms with James Gordon, who finds himself working the high-profile murder of local billionaires Thomas and Martha Wayne, and the clearly life-long relationship he has with butler Alfred Pennyworth (Sean Pertwee).

"Robin Lord Taylor is a true stand-out as Oswald Cobblepot, aka The Penguin. He is a low-level psychopath for Fish Mooney, but has a definite lust for power that will surely come into play as the character develops. His performance is just so good that people won’t be able to not talk about it."

MTV says:

"By far the best thing about the pilot is Robin Lord Taylor as Oswald Cobblepott, the man who will later become one of Batman’s greatest enemies: the Penguin. Taylor is superb and transfixing in the role, down to his yellow teeth, creepy laugh and weird, freckled face."

The day this series airs is the day life will get even more awesome!
