Gotham! Gotham! Gotham!

Gotham3

I must say this TV Series has literally kicked ass!!!!

I’ve never been this excited about a new series. And if you are reading this and haven’t watched Gotham, then you better get moving and watch it, fast!!!

So basically Gotham is a Crime Drama adapted from the DC Comics. So when you hear Gotham, you know what follows, Batman, Joker, Catwoman and the rest of the characters that we’ve watched from the Batman pictures.

The series stars Ben McKenzie as the infamous James Gordon who is a detective in the Gotham City Police Department (GCPD). His first assignment as detective is to solve the murder of young Bruce Wayne’s parents. Bruce is played by David Mazouz.

Detective Gordon is partnered with Harvey Bullock (played by Donal Logue), who is somewhat a corrupt detective but has shown loyalty to Gordon and has gotten him out of trouble many a few times.

In order to clean out the crime in Gotham, Det. Gordon has to work with the high ranking Gotham crime Mafia mainly Fish Mooney (Jada Pinkett Smith), Don Falcone (John Doman) and Don Salvatore Maroni to acheive his objective.
