Though overcrowded with introductions, the Gotham pilot sets the template for an engrossing crime drama with moody atmosphere and likable lead actors.
When the show isn't being a game of "Hey look at this person you know!" and it's doing its own thing, like something closer to Law and Order: Gotham City, it's actually really entertaining.
It's Jada who steals this hour - and who will probably continue to steal the hours to come. It's the best work we've seen her do in years.
Difficult to judge. When it works, it works very well. But when it doesn't, there are moments that land with resounding thuds so heavy that you almost expect them to appear in technicolor, Batman '66 style, on screen.
It was a solid - if at times bumbling and awkward - start for the show.
Fox's Gotham will provide a thoroughly fun and entertaining hour of television that can stand on its own merits.
While there's something numbingly dutiful about the stylized slaying and the ensuing roll out of future villains... if you have any "Batman" sympathies at all, you can feel it working on you.
It is a procedural crime drama and a series set inside a comic book world. That is neat enough as far as the visual aesthetic goes, but providing familiar characters in new forms does enough to create an even richer environment.
Truthfully, I like the casting for all the characters and the grim moody setting that encompasses this crime drama that won't (or shouldn't) just be a cop procedural. The fact that FOX seems willing to go for something a bit more serialized is exciting.
It's all very low key, and timid, as if it's scared to play with the premise.
A decent start to a promising series that could well end up being one of the better comic-derived shows on television, though it's got a ways to go before it achieves "Arrow" levels of awesomeness.
