Lots of good looking teenage girls and boys with their teenage problems. Love triangles and all that bullshit.

I can't be the only person who's watched Hollyoaks or One Tree Hill and thought everything would be more interesting if the characters viewer could shoot death rays from their vacant eyes. Time/Warner might have missed the boat there, though - the teen TV market is all scripted reality, like Jersey Shore, these days. What they should do is put the real Batman and Bane in scenarios devised by the production staff, and then let them improvise their own dialogue.

I like Pro Bear's suggestion that Gotham might be like Cop Rock - imagine Gordon's squad of detectives and Tom Wilkinson's mobsters circling each other, clicking their fingers, singing about how great it is to be a cop/hood, and pulling ballet moves instead of actually fighting.

FTFY
Lock up your spoons!

If this is set when Bruce Wayne is a lad... shouldn't Selina Kyle be a little girl, if she appears at all? I guess they're mixing things up a bit.

I actually quite like the look of Cobblepot as a younger man. Can imagine age and weight added and his degradation/transformation to the rogue we know...

I can't wait for the episode where Brucey and Ossie, best friends since Junior High, fall out over Selina, not realising until it's too late that she's responsible for the daring burglary of Wayne Manor.

Indeed.

All this meanness aside, I have to report a sneaking affection for Arrow.  I don't follow it, but we occasionally dip in for half an episode or so, and it is quite fun (I suspect my wife is mainly hoping to 'accidentally' run into one of the numerous shirtless scenes).  Maybe Gotham can find a path somewhere between the day-glo Dawson's Creek shenanigans of Smallville and the murky warehouses of Arrow or (Grud forbid) the Dark Knight flicks.

But give Gordon a 'tache, please.

Meanness is a gift for shows like this, TB, as it keeps them trending.

He'll put on the 'tache in the final ever episode in season 7.  :P

New trailer, now that looks good.

And in other news, Fox has officially given a series order for its Batman prequel "Gotham".

I love Arrow, and am unashamed to say so! I saw bits and pieces of it and dismissed it as cheesy nonsense, then was really bored/hungover one day so just put it on Netflix to save me moving, and within a couple of episodes I was totally hooked. The first season finale was fantastic telly entertainment, haven't seen beyond that yet though.

From that I've learnt I should give these things a chance instead of discounting them, so I'll try this despite the trailer not doing much for me.
