New Critics TV Spot For Fox's GOTHAM

A lot of fans aren't fully on board with Fox's upcoming Batman prequel series, but it has certainly gone over pretty well with most critics. After the jump you can see a few pull-quotes, as well as some new footage of Det. Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie) being a total badass.

The series follows one cop, destined for greatness, as he navigates a dangerously corrupt city teetering between good and evil, and chronicles the rise of the great DC Comics Super-Villains and vigilantes. The entirely new, untold chapter comes from executive producer/writer Bruno Heller (“The Mentalist,” “Rome”) and stars Ben McKenzie (“Southland,” “The O.C.”), Donal Logue (“Vikings,” “Sons of Anarchy”) and Jada Pinkett Smith (“Hawthorne,” “Collateral”).

Gotham kicks off Monday, September 22.

too many damn shows to watch man. Don't care what anyone says about 'butchering' characters - this looks very interesting to me

^Those people seem to forget that every superhero adaptation ever changes things up.

I gladly take this show at all.

Exactly! Comics and characters have changed considerably over the years and will continue to. Some new versions work, some don't - let's see how it pans out

Jim Gordon from Gotham: "I promise you. No matter how dark and scary the world might be right now. There will be light."

Harvey Dent from The Dark Knight: "I promise you the night is darkest just before the dawn. But the dawn is coming!"

Like Ludacris I just spit the truth

That would imply you're not a gentleman, but a man who spits.

Amen @Doopie I am also watching this!
Doopie - 8/19/2014, 2:41 AM
sorry I was using 'street' vernacular - as in spit lyrics. I am a gentleman and I want a lady in the street but a freak in the bed.

>Article says fans hate show
>fans furiously lead by drawing artist state that they will poison water supplies, tip over cows and not flush the toilet to prove how much they love and want to see this show.

this is why I come here

To be fair to Ror, there has been a lot of people not liking the premise of the show and see it as a waste or whatever. I just hope they at least give it a chance
