I watch the series once every while at a friend's house while watching his dog while he is away at work. I am pleased with the entire series. It shows you how dumb people are and can be. Arresting criminal's is a police officer's duty and to file the paper work on that criminal so that they can be brought in and do some jail time to think about why they are there.
I won't lie though, some of the episodes are played as in just for show so that they can get more people to watch and make more money from those viewers. I don't like shows that do it just for the money cause it's not real.
I'm sadly going to have to give this a 5/10. I like the excitement in the episodes and how good of a job the actors do just to show people that people can be such moron's. There's so many of them that are not moron's, they are just high on something or want the attention(witch is what everyone wants, who doesn't?).
Good TV show, really but it's just for the money from the viewers.… Full Review »
This show had so much going for it. A ready made fan base in a very interesting world. But there are a multitude of problems.
Besides Jim Gordon, there really aren't any characters that are either likeable or unlikeable. Gotham PD (the good guys) are chock-full of thugs and crooked cops. Major Crimes (the rivals) are more honest, and in my opinion, sympathetic than GCPD. And that is just the tip of the iceberg. Even Gordon (The main character) suffers from truly unlikeable faults. It isn't a matter of any character being an anti-hero or complex- it is simply a matter of every character being somebody you don't want to see.
In addition to poor characters, there is a myriad of other problems with this show. Some of the acting is well done, but the show suffers from abysmal writing and despite being a huge comic book fan, as much as I tried, I simply could not bring myself to like anything about this show.
All I could think every episode I tried watching was "Is Batman here yet? This is beyond saving. Maybe Ra's al ghul is right."… Full Review »
