Gotham: Season One (2014)
Movie Review by The Gravedigger

Gotham: Season One (2014) This is a surprisingly well-done prequel series to Batman, which has Detective Jim Gordon and a young Bruce Wayne as the main characters. Of course, they meet when Bruce's parents are brutally killed--and they continue a relationship through the series. There's street urchin Selena Kyle, who says she saw who the murderer was--and there's a chemistry between her and young Bruce. Butler Alfred may be one of the most interesting characters--and you can see how he has a huge influence on the formation of the future Caped Crusader. We also see how the villains, in particular The Penguin, gets their beginnings. The most formidable bad-guy is Jada Pinkett Smith's Fish Mooney, who you both hate and root for, depending on her situation. There's a harrowing group of episodes in which she's kidnapped and held on an island where they use their prisoners for spare body parts.The first season ends with her seemingly dying over a cliff--but I suspect she'll return in a year or two under another guise (or different actress). Another surprising twist is Barbara Gordon. When we're first introduced to Jim he's living with his socialite girlfriend in her apartment--and then they break up, after which she goes off the deep end and becomes a villain. I guess he names his future daughter Barbara out of sentimental reasons...

I'm surprised at how much I enjoyed this prequel television series to BATMAN.

Highly recommended.
