    Ivy Pepper...ugh. What, was Pamela Isley not obvious enough? And I really dislike the "creepy, socially ostracized kid" angle they're pushing here.

    I'm curious about Fish Mooney, but why couldn't they use Carmine Falcone instead? Or is Falcone supposed to come into power later, before Batman arrives in Gotham and kicks his ass?
    The way I have it figured, Selina's a thirteen year old petty burglar, not a master thief. She's shown stealing milk in the production stills, and she's an acrobat, so think less classy cat burglar and more Aladdin-esque street rat who can stay alive but never really profit from their robberies just yet. And that actually seems believable to me; it beats the "dominatrix uses mysterious hooker powers to suddenly become a master thief" origin of Year One, and she has no need to have cats lick her to give her abilities here like in Returns or the Zero issue. She's got one feature of her future self, the free-running aspect (which I'm betting they'll have her teach Bruce) but she's far from the conwoman and impossible thief shell later be.

    I'm betting on Harvey or someone else belittling Nygma a few times too often until he starts small scale blackmail and prank attacks and then slowly escalates.

    Ivy Pepper does seem stupid at first glance.

    I've also got Fish pegged for a Penguin lead usurpation. She's his boss, and he's a low level thug at the moment.

    I just hope they don't make a joker origin. That'll ruin his character.

    They've hinted at the Joker, but have stated he likely wouldn't be around "for awhile," because they know his appearance would be a very big deal and they'd want to make sure they did it right and not just rush into it for the sake of saying "Hey, look, Joker's here this week."

    I actually like what I'm seeing with GOTHAM. But I am definitely reminded of SMALLVILLE.

    I think GOTHAM will be to Batman (and his fanbase) what SMALLVILLE was to Superman (and his fanbase): a divisive prequel tv show with increasingly more of the mythos on display in unusual forms, with the hero himself not showing up in costume until the very last episode of the entire show.

    A couple of key differences.

    GOTHAM is on Fox, while SMALLVILLE was on the WB/CW network. GOTHAM will be seen (potentially) by way more people than SMALLVILLE ever was.

    SMALLVILLE never had the production value that GOTHAM already seems to own. This is probably tied into which networks they were aired on.

    SMALLVILLE had its star actor at real age 25 playing a 15-year-old. GOTHAM has its star{?} actor at real age 13 playing a 10 {12?}-year-old. That will help GOTHAM, as it hurt SMALLVILLE.

    Presuming Fox doesn't can this new show 3 episodes into its premiere season, how long do you think GOTHAM can go on? 10 seasons like SMALLVILLE?

    I don't think ratings will be a problem for two or three years. I think the show will do respectable, but not a smash hit. Top 20 but not Top 10. I think the biggest problem the show will run into is cost. It looks like it might be an expensive show to make and I don't know if it will do enough ratings to merit a long-term run.
    Hope is not lost today. It is found.

    Basically, every episode in the first season will introduce a character that might be a future Joker, each emphasising aspects of the character’s iconography, a card sharp, a flower seller, a clown, or just a guy with a very big grin.
    If this is the route they go, I'll be pleasantly surprised.

    The new Gotham video is short but looks great. No Bruce and no Ivy (I'm unable to type her new first name).

    I hope Aloe Blacc's "Ticking Bomb" that's played during Gordon's narration isn't the theme song and isn't a reoccurring song used in the show. The cinematic music they've used up to now in the little videos had been perfect.

    The show looks really promising. I also like the multiple potential origins for the Joker. Way to circumvent the problem.

    It's such a cool idea. Although part of me is just like "oh, it'll be the six foot four kid!"

    ...

    Joker's tall.

    Hahaha.

    My thought, reading that SDCC Fox announcement ... was just how superlative "City" has become to talking about Gotham.

    I'm not sure how necessary it is anymore, and I wonder if GOTHAM will almost strip it from the public conscious. It's not as if we won't all know that it was more common before to call it "Gotham City" in full, just that it'll seem kind of quaint and old-timey, like it belongs on the '66 show.
