Some mornings here at the shop are slow enough to allow me to catch up on my shows, such as GOTHAM. I didn’t realize how far behind I had fallen. I don’t know about everyone else but I really love this show. I don’t know all that much beyond the general history of Batman, but even I can spot a few cool points in this show. In fact, I am familiar with the “Court of Owls” story from recent comics, and I swear that I heard hooting owls towards the end of “The Mask” episode. Right? And in “Lovecraft,” when Bullock calls Alfred a valet, Alfred replies, “I’m the Butler.” It sounded so much like, “I’m the Batman,” to me.
This show has me sometimes wanting to cry like when the entire precinct walks out on Gordon, then cheering when Montoya and Allen come screaming up to rescue him. Then to see Alfred put the hurt on someone was awesome! And I’m really digging the back and forth between Fish, Falcone, Maroni, and Cobblepot. Gotham has really got me hooked.
At least, for now. I haven’t caught up on my other shows. It may change. I’ve heard a lot of good things about FLASH, but have only seen the first two episodes. So, what shows are you watching? And what is it about that show that has you hooked? You’ve seen mine, now show me yours!
