There is a lot of excitement about the new series Gotham on Fox. The series is a prequel to the Batman series. Well at least that's what they are saying. Bruce Wayne is a kid now orphaned after his parents murder and is raised by Alfred Pennyworth. James Gordon is a young detective and will have his hands full.

So I watched the first few episodes of the show and so far it's not bad. Not as good as I thought it would be, but it's only had a few episodes so there will be room for improvement. The story line is good, just seems really slow. 

But the upside is the casting for the show is great, the casting director should get an award. A lot of the classic Gotham criminals are have showed up. Many of them are young haven't fallen off the deep in yet, or are just getting started on their dark path. Please not that some of them do not like to be called certain names, if you do you might be offed. Fair warning! 

Actress Jada Pinkett Smith is perfect as Fish Mooney. She has the character down perfectly. One of my favorite lines she has is when a certain character works for her. Isn't doing a great attention holding an umbrella.  You want to get on her bad side get her wet, you might regret that one drop of rain got on it.

Gotham is the land of opportunity for all  criminals we know and love. Where one will gladly have the other bumped off just to be able to gain more power. Let's see how far they get while young Bruce Wayne is still mourning the death of his parents. Then becomes the hero that we all know he can be.
