FOX’s highly anticipated fall series Gotham premiered last week and I have to say, I wasn’t really blown away. Sure, I love everyone in the show and I’m a huge fan of the Caped-Crusader but the series and cast weren’t really embracing the campy parts of the show. Ben McKenzie looks so serious the entire time that it’s distracting. I mean, look at his face next time you watch. Also, what’s up with Jada Pinkett-Smith’s on and off accent? Here’s hoping the city of Gotham just needs a little time to find themselves, like most shows do these days.
This week is all about Selina Kyle, who gets tangled up in a child trafficking ring, with guest stars Frank Whaley and Lili Taylor as the bad guys and the one and only Carol Cane as Odwald’s mother.
Episode 1.02 of Gotham titled “Selina Kyle” airs Monday night at 8/7c on Fox.
Check out the official description below including photos from the episode.
