Gotham is probably my favorite genre show on TV right now, certainly my favorite based on a comic. (I’m looking at you Flash.) I thought I would be put off by “Lack of Batman” but instead have been pleasantly surprised to realize that’s not the point of the show. And I don’t care — it’s just so entertaining to watch. It has interesting story lines and entertaining characters (Robin Lord Taylor’s Penguin and Sean Pertwee as Alfred, for example). It’s the one show I genuinely look forward to every week.
Season 1 was, in some ways, all about Penguin. The following trailer for season 2 shows that it’s time for the Joker to take the spotlight. Bring it.
