new_forest_guy saidI have been watching it, but it's really fucking bad.
I wouldn't mind if it was just a mini-series that focused mainly on the murder of the Waynes, but who the hell wants to watch 20 fucking episodes of how the Penguin became a club owner, and Will Smith's wife playing a black Sharon Osbourne???
The action scenes are piss poor, it's like they couldn't afford the stunts used in Arrow, so they make up for it by shoving in tacky bloody violence.
We keep finding out that basically every member of Batman's rogue's gallery had a drunk and/or abusive father, and a drunk and/or whore for a mother.
The only decent thing about the show is the girl who plays young Selina Kyle - she upstages the whole cast.
People who want to watch a TV show set in Gotham City are better off sticking with Batman the Animated Series, unless they want to watch torture porn featuring a bunch of characters who have nothing whatsoever to do with Batman.
You see, even though Fish Mooney is my favorite character next to Penguin in Gotham, I do understand why others or many aren't fond of her.
To begin, she can be bombastic despite being based off of Eartha Kitt's performance of Catwoman from the live-action Batman series, which can be considered over-the-top for the setting that Gotham takes place in (you could say Joker's over the top but his actions befit the gritty world of Gotham). She's fiery-tempered, hammy, and to some obnoxious, though she does go under a great amount of character development around Episode 8 and so on.
There's also the fact Fish's an original character created solely for the show whose intention is to overthrow Falcone to become "Queen of Gotham", yet she doesn't realize how poorly she kept her plans hidden or that others will fight her for that position. To best describe her presence in the story from the perspective of others, she's basically a chick who showed up to a party she wasn't even invited to and decided she could take it over.
That being said, I enjoyed Jada Pinkett Smith's performance as Fish Mooney and will miss her as she won't appear in Season 2. Concerning the overall show, I'm not "well-versed" in DC media so I can't criticize, but I will say that the show had its stale moments until the past two episodes - I didn't care for The Ogre or Barbara's subplot at all.
