Great to see the time put in to build up characters compared to the over night we see in the comics & movies. Never really liked jada Pinkett smith till now. Jim Gordon and Harvey Bullock keep you coming back for more. It's going to real hard to fill the Penguin shoes. It"s gonna be hard pressed to see how they plan to do the next future criminal.

ALL you ignorant people, GOTHAM IS BEFORE BATMAN EXISTED. And the characters were modified to be more fit, and to attracts more people. Stop your yapping, because the creators of the DC COMICS THEMSELVES, CREATED THIS SHOW. THEY PORTRAYED It the way they wanted it to be. People didn't mock it, the creators decided to make it more interesting, with a twist too. You're all too ignorant to realize that.
