    Any yet none of that was in your very immature response at the top of this thread. That's what I was responding to.

    Probably because it's what the producers said that it was meant to meant to be about female empowerment, and I personally just don't really care for storylines like these when they're written in the most hamfisted, cringeworthy way possible. The show already had that message executed better with more likable characters (Selina) but it just isn't working with Barbara at all, imo, and it irritates me a little.

    But whatever. :shrug:

    Called it. :woot:

    I wonder if we'll get a loose adaptation of The War Of Jokes And Riddles. Nygma hasn't interacted with any of the Valeskas (yet).

    Awesome seeing the rogue's gallery like that. So many of them have been done well and I love their interactions.

    I have to clarify one thing, I'm not saying that all people calling for recast "haters". It's one thing to say "David is really small/ not muscular enough, they should recast", it's another thing to repeatedly call him "weedy" and "tiny skinny little Mazouz" (3 consecutive synonyms) and repeatedly saying him wearing the suit is "ridiculous". Even though he IS skinny, and him wearing the suit might be ridiculous (personally I don't think so, they can aim for a different aesthetic from the comics), there's a different between being courteous and being condescending.

    Considering that season 5 is supposed to focus on Bruce's final steps towards becoming Batman and how he will most likely help Gordon reclaim Gotham from the villains does anyone else feel like Season 4 should have ended with this shot instead?

    I feel like the producers jumped the gun in using that shot to close season 3 when it would have been more appropriate for this season's finale. Plus they dropped Bruce's whole vigilante arc so quickly this season and never went back to it.

    The other one that he doesn't want to talk about for fear of spoiling things... My theory is that it could be TDKR's Mutant Leader and his gang. The climate of the city as we last saw it seems perfect for those guys to play their part.

    Back then, they thought that the series would end in that point. That's why they undid vigilante Bruce the moment they could.

    Not sure if it’s legit but there’s someone saying Sean Pertwee told them in London HVFF that season 5 will have 10 episodes (at the signing booth, not the panel, so no one else can verify this). Credibility is low so I won’t link it, but if it’s true then it isn’t a bad idea to get used to it.

    There's another person who was there that said the 10 episodes thing is actually in regards to the Pennyworth series and not Gotham.

    At the moment, I'd take all of this with a grain of salt.

    The Pennyworth thing is is said over the the panel I think, the 10-episode for season 5 is supposedly said to a fan at the signing booth. He said that Sean was very specific too "It isn't 13 episodes as reported. FOX gives us 10."

    Btw this is from TV critic Matt Roush who attended FOX Upfront:

    Maybe he was confused as there would have to be 100 episodes for syndication?

    ...what the f***, Fox?

    Was giving it two or three extra episodes for syndication really an arduous deal for you? :doh:

    The storylines will probably be rushed now! 13-16 episodes could have helped!!

    Lethal Weapon gets 13 episodes.

    Season 5 of Gotham premieres Friday March 15 2019.

    Lethal Weapon premieres Monday September 24 2018.


    https://www.spoilertv.com/2018/05/the-spoilertv-201819-upcoming-premiere.html?m=1

    Gotham already reached syndication with 88 episodes at the end of season 4 and is now eligible to be reaired, 100 episodes is just a nicer number.

    All in all 88 episodes is the desirable number, 100 is nicer but 98 episodes is so bizarre (not as bizarre as 87 episodes, but still).

    FOX probably went “10 episodes. Take it or leave it. No negotiations” and WB gritted their teeth and took it.

    A bit worried for S5 with the reduced number of episodes!
