Gotham 1.2 “Selina Kyle” review coming right up after these Gotham 1.1 “Pilot” messages (recap):

Major Spoilers!!

Gotham is a pre-origins story focusing on Jim Gordon’s (Ben McKenzie) battle with the many criminals of Gotham, when there were no superheroes, yet the supervillains were beginning to flourish. His blossoming friendship with young Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz) starts here. Jim’s first case is the murder of Bruce’s parents, a robbery gone wrong, or so it seems. Idealist Jim is saddled with crooked partner Harvey Bullock (Donal Logue), and is forced to make questionable choices in order to keep his loved ones safe. They kill the guy that was set up as the murderer (future Poison Ivy’s dad), and almost lose their lives themselves, thanks to new villain Fish Mooney (Jada Pinkett Smith) and Carmine Falcone (John Doman), the real power of the town. Jim bonds with Bruce and makes the lifelong secret vow (secret between them and Sean Pertwee‘s Alfred) to find the real killers.

Gotham
Season 1 Episode 1: “Pilot”
Directed by Danny Cannon
Written by Bruno Heller and Bob Kane
Starring Ben McKenzie, Donal Logue, Jada Pinkett Smith, Sean Pertwee, Robin Taylor, David Mazouz, Cameron Bicondova, Cory Michael Smith, Erin Richards, Andrew Stewart-Jones, and Victoria Cartegena

Air Date: Monday, September 22, 2014, 8pm

DC is looking to make another mark in the television universe, with FOX reaping the eventual accolades and profit. Gotham, premiering tonight at 8pm, is an origins story that predates Batman. This story focuses on rookie detective, Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie), two weeks into his new position at his new precinct in the heart of Gotham City, partnered with corrupt Harvey Bullock (the always enjoyable Donal Logue). His first major case is the murder of billionaires Martha and Thomas Wayne. The only witness is their 12-year-old son, Bruce (David Mazouz), or so we think. It is there the friendship is forged, with Jim promising young Bruce that he will find the killer, much to Alfred’s (Sean Pertwee) skepticism.
