Well it looks as if the pilot episode of ‘Gotham‘ is making the rounds of the review circles and screen grabs of the show are starting to pop up! I’m happy to share them with you as they truly give us an idea of how dark the show is going to be. Now of course you have to realize this is going to be full of spoilers as it’ll be images of what is in the show and some hints at the plot. By some hints, I actually mean a walk through of most of the first episode. As this is about the origins of the villains in Batman’s rogue gallery as well as the police of Gotham, this isn’t going to be the most politically correct show of all time.
Case in point, “I haven’t been ashamed since I was twelve and my mom caught me jacking off” – Harvey Bullock.
First up is an introduction to the city itself, Gotham, where the entire story is about to take place.
Next up we are introduced to a young thief who is pretty much going out on her own until she witnesses the murder of Bruce Wayne’s parents right in front of him.
As we see the pearls drop from Wayne’s mother and hit the floor with their bodies the young Catwoman has a new obsession in her life. We’ll move on from there though.
Moving past the murder we are introduced to James Gordon who has joined the police department
He is introduced to his partner Harvey Bullock and the murder of the Waynes is their first case together. While Bullock is corrupt at heart the murder of the Wayne’s pushes past his moral line and he dives in head first to work with Gordon to solve it.
Of course you’ll also get a shot of where the two are working together.
We are also introduced to Edward Nigma the future Riddler right in the first episode whree Bullock is already sick of the riddles that the man enjoys asking. Also introduced area Alfred Pennyworth and Oswald Cobblepot who you can see below. Past that we are introduced to a variety of police and more in what is shaping up to be a great cop show that just happens to take place in the birthplace of Batman.

Everyone knows the name Commissioner Gordon. He is one of the crime world’s greatest foes, a man whose reputation is synonymous with law and order. But what is known of Gordon’s story and his rise from rookie detective to Police Commissioner? What did it take to navigate the multiple layers of corruption that secretly ruled Gotham City, the spawning ground of the world’s most iconic villains? And what circumstances created them – the larger-than-life personas who would become Catwoman, The Penguin, The Riddler, Two-Face and The Joker. GOTHAM is an origin story of the great DC Comics super villains and vigilantes, revealing an entirely new chapter that has never been told. From executive producer/writer Bruno Heller (“The Mentalist,” “Rome”), GOTHAM follows one cop’s rise through a dangerously corrupt city teetering on the edge of evil and chronicles the birth of one of the most popular super heroes of our time.
‘Gotham’ will air Monday nights this September at 8 p.m. on the FOX network.
