Gotham Season 1 Episode 1: Pilot

5 second plot: It's the first day on the job for detective Jim Gordon. He and his partner have to investigate the murder of Mr and Mrs Wayne. It looks like a pretty straightforward case at first, but it's not. And of course, the viewer gets to meet all the 'special' people of Gotham. But we meet them years before they become superheroes (or -villains).

5 second review: It has to be said that it's not the same atmosphere as a Batman-movie. It's more grounded. It's a detective story. Set in Gotham. It's kinda fun to meet the future Gotham-superstars. But it's also tricky. I don't know if hardcore fans will be satisfied (they might be spotting errors everywhere).

IMDb score: 8,3/10
