Here we are at the second of Gotham, but I enjoyed the first episode it was great to get a feel for the characters and to meet most of the main players. The Penguin betrayed Fish who betrayed Falcone, Gordon “shot” The Penguin. Bullock is a dirty cop and a drunk but we already knew that. The Wayne’s were killed and Gordon plans on doing everything to bring their killer to justice.
Here is it the series premiere of Gotham which we have all been waiting for, well I know I have. I am super excited for this, I am hoping they don’t disappoint.
I know we are all very excited for the new Gotham show, I bet we all have things that we would like to see happen. I wanted to go over the list of some of what I would like to see happen over the series, not just the first season because we all know that this will be the set up season for the show.
Since most of the Fall TV Shows will be starting up soon I thought I would help us all out by posting the premiere schedules and some trailers.
Agents of S.H.E.I.L.D
Once Upon a Time
There you have the list and videos for some of the shows coming out this fall, hope you will check back with us as we give you what we hope to see this upcoming season and for show recaps throughout the season.
There is a new trailer out for Gotham:
Really it does not give us anything that we don’t already know, but I like the focus on Jim Gordon. Honestly finding out more about him is one of the things making me excited for the show. I want to see Gordon and his development and what it is about Gordon that makes Batman trust him. Also I want to see Gordon’s interactions with the villains, especially Selina Kyle, I wonder if he will play a part in keeping her from becoming worse.
What do you think about the new trailer, are you excited to learn more about Jim Gordon?
There is a first look trailer out for Gotham, where they give us some more footage of the show but also explain more about it.
I will say this, every trailer or video I see for the show looks amazing so I am really hoping that the show looks like this for real and that its not just some amazing editing job. Here are somethings that they went over in this video that I really like.
- I like the fact that the show will be more of a detective show then another comic show. I like this because I feel like they can do more with the show if they focus on that element and just make sure to make the DC characters the main cast. What I think people forget sometimes is that a lot happens in Gotham; drug deals, murder, rape, muggings, poverty, etc. Everyone gets focused on the villains that they forget there are other aspects of the city that Batman fights. If they focus on that then we will really get to see the destruction and corruption of this city and why Batman is needed. I am sure that all the other gritty aspects of Gotham are what caused the villains to become who they are. I think making this a detective drama and using the characters that we know and love as the main cast is the right idea. This way we can see how they become who they are and why Gotham is so bad.
- I also like how they mention more of the villains that have yet to be cast, that tells us they have plans for them and that we will be seeing more villains throughout the show. I guess right now they are seeing how the show does and if it does well then they will be adding more. I am looking forward to seeing more of the villains pop up.
- I am intrigued to learn more about Gordon, since he really is the main focus. We all know Batman’s story, we have read it and seen it a millions times. We really don’t know Gordon’s, so I have been enjoying seeing all of his scenes. He looks like an interesting character that it will be great to see how he becomes the police commission and how he manages to keep is good heart and undying belief in the city.
I think if they writers and creators keep going the way that they are this show could do really well. It already has an amazing following just from DC alone. Everyone knows that Batman is the bread and butter of the DC universe. It was smart for the show to include little Bruce Wayne as a cast member. I think this show has a lot of potential to do really well.
What did you like about this video? What are you looking forward to the most?
In a new short clip from Fox’s Gotham, they spotlight Catwoman, The Penguin, and Fish Mooney.
The clip is short but it does tell us that young Selina Kyle, Oswald Cobblepot and Fish Mooney are going to major villains. I am not sure if it’s for the whole series or if it is just for the first season. I’m pretty is it will be for the whole series, well maybe not for Fish Mooney since the Penguin works for her. At the same time it is nice get a slight idea how these villains are going to be worked into the series. We already know that The Riddler and Poison Ivy are also going to be in the series and have already been cast. The Riddler is working in the forensics department of the Gotham PD. Fish Mooney is a business women/crime boss in the city. The Penguin is one of her low-level thugs, it looks like she sends him out to do some of the beatings. Young Selina Kyle is just a little thief that should not be cornered. It looks like Gordon and Bullock might have their work cut out for them with this crew. There is still talks of bringing in the Joker which could also mean seeing Harley Quinn. As well all know there is a long list of Batman villains still left to be introduced. I am very interested to see how they put this all together.
Character photos have been released for Gotham:
In order from top left, Selina Kyle, Bruce Wayne, Alfred Pennyworth, Fishy Mooney, Oswald Cobblepot, Barbara Kean, Captain Sarah Essen, Detective Harvey Bullock, Detective Jim Gordon.
What do you think of these pics? Do you think the show has been casted well?
I personally think they did a great job casting the show, without knowing who is playing who I would be able to tell by most of the pics. Since there are not many images of these characters younger, the show did a good job of picking people who could look like a younger versions of their character or an actor who played that character.
You will be able to check out Gotham on Mondays before Sleepy Hollow this fall.
After months of wondering we finally have an answer right before finale episode, Agents of SHIELD has been renewed for a second season. I know fans are breathing a sigh of relief about this. Anyone who has been watching the show knows that it started off slow but has really turned around during the later episodes. Let’s hope the show keeps up the momentum and gets better during the second season.
Speaking of Marvel, Agent Carter has been ordered to series, so we will be seeing that during the upcoming fall season. ABC has released some information about the show:
“Marvel’s Agent Carter,” starring Captain America’s Hayley Atwell follows the story of Peggy Carter. It’s 1946, and peace has dealt Peggy Carter a serious blow as she finds herself marginalized when the men return home from fighting abroad. Working for the covert SSR (Strategic Scientific Reserve), Peggy must balance doing administrative work and going on secret missions for Howard Stark all while trying to navigate life as a single woman in America, in the wake of losing the love of her life–Steve Rogers. Inspired by the feature films “Captain America: The First Avenger” and “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” along with the short “Marvel One-Shot: Agent Carter.”
If the show is anything like the Marvel One -Shot it should be really awesome. It will be great to have another show on the air with a strong female lead. It will be nice seeing how she eventually become one of the founder of SHIELD.
In other TV Show news; Gotham, The Flash, Constantine, and iZombie have all been ordered to series.
What shows are you looking forward to seeing this upcoming fall season?
Fox has released the official trailer to their new show Gotham.
I have to say I am really liking the trailer, the casting for the show has been really good. The trailer was done really well, it gave a great introduction to how the show is going to go and who we are going to meet. The trailer is well put together so I am hoping the show will also be as good. I know Fox ordered this as a straight to series so that gives me hope the show is going to be promising. I am looking forward to checking out the show this fall.
Who else will be checking out this show in the fall?
