We’ve heard plenty about CW’s The Flash pilot from those who have been lucky enough to have seen it already, but what about Gotham? Ben McKenzie, who leads the ensemble cast as Detective James Gordon, hosted a screening for TV bloggers and critics last night. A number of them gave their initial reactions on Twitter.













So far, things seem to be looking up for the Commissioner Gordon origins tale. The show is set to kick off on Mondays at 8/7c on FOX this fall. What do you think of Gotham? Are you excited for a network schedule with four hour-long DC shows weekly?

Things are heating up!

Oh man, I just made an article, assuming I did it right, with some spoiler-free stuff about the pilot. This is good stuff. I'm excited.

@Brainiac13
After the trouble you went through yestserday? No thank you lol
TheAbaryMan369 - 6/13/2014, 2:53 PM
This has so much potential that I am utterly shocked that people aren't looking forward to this as much as they should.
IronConstantine68 - 6/13/2014, 2:53 PM
i'm surprised no one talked about the riddler, but i guess i can only expect so much...
Ignition - 6/13/2014, 2:54 PM
I think you should give this article the old thumbs up if you like what you're hearing.
TheGambitFreakIsBatmanOfCBM - 6/13/2014, 2:54 PM
Pointless. The show is pointless. My 54 year old father, who thinks comic book movies are stupid anyways, asked me about it. He said, "Hey, you seen anything about that Gotham show? It takes place like before Batman? Who the hell gives a crap about Gotham before Batman arrives?" It's one of the few times I have agreed with my dad.
Ignition - 6/13/2014, 2:54 PM
@IronConstantine68 - people did, I just didn't want 50 tweets on the page. It's a small role, one scene in the pilot.
IronConstantine68 - 6/13/2014, 2:59 PM
@Ignition, no worries, i understand.
IronConstantine68 - 6/13/2014, 2:59 PM
@Ignition, i'm assuming the response was positive, like the rest?
JoJo1982 - 6/13/2014, 3:01 PM
Having a hard time getting excited for this show

yonny616 - 6/13/2014, 3:01 PM
inb4 Batmaniac rant. lol
IronConstantine68 - 6/13/2014, 3:02 PM
@bluedude, well yeah, it's the only good thing about batman, so why not reuse it?
soforizo - 6/13/2014, 3:03 PM
Batmaniac reading these reviews...

thebearjew - 6/13/2014, 3:05 PM
batman> every other character ever
IronConstantine68 - 6/13/2014, 3:05 PM
@bluedude, "Themiscyra" you mean?
IronConstantine68 - 6/13/2014, 3:05 PM
@bluedude, i would like to see your reasoning....
soforizo - 6/13/2014, 3:05 PM
This is going to be an odd show to me, but I do like the tone of it. But I hope they don't concentrate too much on giving nods to the mythology.
yonny616 - 6/13/2014, 3:08 PM
@Sofo LMAO!

This is Batmaniac after seeing this reviews.
thebearjew - 6/13/2014, 3:08 PM
im not going to argue with someone who has a martian manhunter
IronConstantine68 - 6/13/2014, 3:08 PM
personally, i have never liked batman in any way, shape or form, but i do like detective dramas and crime shows, so i may check this out.
IronConstantine68 - 6/13/2014, 3:09 PM
@bluedude, i'm not gonna argue with someone who has a blue blob for a profile picture.
Nomis - 6/13/2014, 3:10 PM
I've thought the premise of the show was excellent since it was first announce.

0megaDaGod - 6/13/2014, 3:11 PM
LMAO @ all the Batmaniac post

Meanwhile, somewhere in the UK.....

JoeMomma29 - 6/13/2014, 3:12 PM
I know this show is going to rock!
themidnightking - 6/13/2014, 3:12 PM
@IronConstantine
You've never seen Foster's Home For Imaginary Friends?!
JoeMomma29 - 6/13/2014, 3:13 PM
@ sofo

LMAO!!!!!!!
ALegendaryPanda - 6/13/2014, 3:13 PM
Awesome! I can't wait until this premieres!
IronConstantine68 - 6/13/2014, 3:13 PM
@themidnightking, yes, but i could not remember that characters name, so i improvised.
MexicanSuperman - 6/13/2014, 3:13 PM
@ GambitFreak, how is it pointless? I think it is interesting to see how a city got so bad that it caused a man to become a vigilante that cleans up the city with his bare hands.
JoeMomma29 - 6/13/2014, 3:14 PM
@ Nomis

You and I were the only two that were excited to see this show happen.
yonny616 - 6/13/2014, 3:17 PM
Batmaniac is going to see this article and these comments and be like:

MrSotoMan - 6/13/2014, 3:18 PM
I'm with BatManiac on this, this is bullshit.

BULLSHIT
Pasto - 6/13/2014, 3:19 PM
*Batmaniac's reaction to this*

IronConstantine68 - 6/13/2014, 3:21 PM
i mean, this could be GOOD, but it will immediately suck once batman is introduced. i have never been able to understand how people can take such a lame, cliche hero so seriously.
JoeMomma29 - 6/13/2014, 3:21 PM
This will be Batmaniac......

Pasto - 6/13/2014, 3:21 PM
Sorry, here is a more accurate reaction
