I see copious amounts of Gotham hate on this site, but i actually really like it. I think it's far superior to Arrow which everyone seems to like. Sooo, if you do, why do you dislike it?

they try to cram too many bat villains in it. the age gap of some characters makes no sense . according to the show when bruce becomes batman almost all his foes will be in their 50s . i do like the mobster angle maroni, fish, etc that is fun . making penguin cool? unexpected. far superior to arrow??? nah. while the show does lean toward unneeded teen dramabull crap i never avoided episodes like i have with gotham

I don't dislike Gotham, I am finding the race to be number one in the city's underbelly quite exciting and many of the actors are great fun to watch (Donal Logue, Robin Lord Taylor, Corey Michael Smith etc.). The show's not perfect and could use a lesson in subtly but it's entertaining and that's all I ask. Also Ben McKenzie surprised me with how much I like him as Gordon.

I think it's okay, but sometimes the Batman hints are too much. It's like every villain and their grandma originated at the same time.

I like it, but it started falling off a few episodes ago. And it bothers me that they constantly try to force Batman villains into it, when it doesn't work at all.

Also, Bruce is horrible. I hate him.

@masterkungfu: And there never will be on this show unfortunately...Personally I don't see it to be anything more than a glorified cop drama. If I wanted to see something like that, I'll just watch Blue Bloods or CSI or something.

IMHO Gotham should just get to where we see Joe Chill being the killer of Batman's Bruce Wayne's parents and be done with it.

And SoA is right about the age gap between Bruce and the villians...They'll be too old to fight when Bruce grows up.

But there's a fun fact regarding one of the show's actors: Donal Logue...This isn't the first time Donal was on something that was Batman-related. He was also in The Dark Knight as well when he was one of Joker's henchmen and there was a phone bomb inside him.

I only saw a few episodes, but I didn't like that they ignored how old everyone is supposed to be.

Too many bat villains/gimmicks. Could've been a great show focusing on the gang wars and the odd villain that would already be around (Court of Owls could've had a great arc, Penguin makes a ton of sense). Instead they have the joker, the riddler, poison ivy, zsasz and catwoman taking up half the time, when they just shouldn't matter 15 years before batman shows up. It just isn't focused enough on what Gotham would ACTUALLY be like before Batman.

It's basically like f***ing, but never being able to c**. I still plan on watching it and giving it a chance, but you are ultimately never gonna get what you really want out of it(Batman).

@dan12456: I think the power play between the different crime bosses very interesting, as well as The Penguin's part in it. I hate how Arrow has like five deep talks per episode with sad violin music in the background, Gotham doesn't take itself seriously. You can see that the people making it are having fun.

It's a relatively boring show with poor acting, writing, and horrible pace issues. I personally think it's the one comic book show that's out right now that isn't at all good.

I gave up watching it halfway through the first season and don't really have any intention of checking it out. I remember doing the same with Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. but while it took a few episodes I ended up liking it. That's because I wanted to give it another shot though despite my love of Batman I don't really care. I remember the only two things I liked about it was Penguin and Alfred but probably not enough to watch the rest. FYI Arrow is superior to Gotham, at least in it's first two seasons. I've heard Season 5 is good so I may check that out but I would rather watch bad episodes of Arrow as it is part of a big universe.
