'Gotham': TV Review
The series is set in Gotham City when there wasn't yet a Batman or a Catwoman or any of the villains and characters the Batman universe is peopled with - it's how all of that came about and it works by itself. This is one "origin story" that doesn't need the future to be realized - Fox manages to make a series that works on its own, without leaning too hard on its lineage It's a little too easy and convenient - and ultimately unfair - to say that Fox's buzz-heavy new series Gotham could face the same problems as last year's buzz-heavy entry, ABC's Agents of SHIELD.
