Whoa, okay… first off, I’m sorry I’ve been awol lately, but my heart just wasn’t in it. But I’m back now, and I think I’ll be able to give you a lot more this time around!
So let’s just dive right in to it, shall we…
Gotham – the TV show? When I first heard it, it was as far from a surprise that it would happen, with the success of Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight-trilogy and the Justice League being put together, among other things concerning the Man of Bats. But did it seem like a good idea? No, it didn’t… not at the slightest!
As with everything TV- and movie-related, the casting of beloved characters is a big thing, so when the choices started to pour out on the Internet, it was, to say the least, mixed bags for me. Jada Pinkett Smith, Sara Paxton, Cory Michael Smith to name a few, not much there to convert me. And when I heard that they’ve cast Ben McKenzie as Jim Gordon, I thought to myself that there was no way in hell that I would even watch the pilot. Sure, Donal Logue as Harvey Bullock sounds great, but I wasn’t convinced.
But…. and here’s the good news… with the recent release of the show’s trailer, FOX have me all but converted to the cause, and the show now has built itself up to Comic Book-movie proportions and I can’t wait for the show to air!! Have you seen it? If not, check it out;
There, you watch it? Tell me what you think, both pre- and post-trailer. Hit me up in the comment-section below, and we’ll discuss!
Until next time…….
