Feast your eyes on a tired looking cop drama with hacky hard-boiled dialogue (“There is a war coming…”) and a dash of Batman films past. Ben McKenzie stars as a young Jim Gordon, and familiar faces like Donal Logue, Jada Pinkett Smith, Sean Pertwee (as Alfred), and Robin Lord Taylor fill out the rest of the primary cast.
I don’t mean to be a sonuvabitch but holy hell, this trailer looks like bad reheated leftovers. Who knows, the series could end up being something interesting (if only for schlock value), but if it all looks like this trailer, then I’m fairly certain it won’t be anything worth watching. Fox liked the pilot enough to give Gotham a 13-episode series order, so we’ll see how it pans out this fall.
