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

I don't think this show is going to last very long unless the writing and events that go on are outstanding.
You took the words right out of my mouth. A show set in Gotham without Batman sounds like a ratings disaster to me.

How many crime dramas, as you've defined them, have been on broadcast, though? I'd feel better about Gotham if it were on cable. As it is, I fear we're going to get something closer to Law & Order.

Cynicism is not maturity, do not mistake the one for the other. If you truly cannot accept a story where someone does the right thing because it’s the right thing to do, that says far more about who you are than these characters. - Greg Rucka
