Default Re: "Gotham" the TV Series coming to Fox -- how will effect the new Batman?

DC/Warner Bros. might as well establish that all of this is within the same continuity as MOS to save them to the trouble of having to create a larger universe on the big screen in order to make a JL film.
Agree! DC wins when it comes to TV, however Marvel's off to a good start!

If they play it straight,it'll be little more than the average procedural,with some DC name drops.

Or they could introduce watered down versions of villains (Penguin,Riddler,Black Mask,etc,)and we'll be left with Gordon facing most of Batman's villains before he even meets him.

I could do without a series where Gordon doesn't meet Batman til the last scene of the last episode.
Yeah, I felt this show was a little unnecessary but if it ties into the burgeoning DCCU then ok. But seriously... him of all the characters in the DC universe? They could have chosen another superhero property worth doing. Another show on a second tier superhero would've been better like Shazam/Captain Marvel for example. I can't really see much from Gordon. I'll give it a season.

Let's hope so
