Seems like yet another attempt of DC to keep up with Marvel - this time Agents of Shield...
"Five Rounds Rapid"
I´m a bit disappointed that they didn't go with the "Gotham Central" show instead. It would have been much more interesting seeing how cops deal with having a vigilante like Batman running around.
Sure it might be a reaction to Marvel having a major network show, but hopefully it will be its own thing in style and storytelling.
This is a great example of how wrong Joe Mallozzi, and 90% of the fanbase on here are about a Devlin Stargate reboot killing Wright/RDA's Stargate.
A popular cinematic franchise can spawn a mostly unrelated television franchise. I guarantee this series won't fret over maintaining continuity with Nolan or Burton, they're just going to try to produce a quality program with characters from the same source material.
Similarly, if Devlin & Emmerich made a Stargate blockbuster for MGM, they'd be far more likely to ask Brad Wright to once again expand the brand by producing some quality, lower budgeted televised Stargate programs.
"Most of our John Sheppard impressions sound more like a demented Jimmy Stewart than Joe Flanigan."
Not keen. Having "the villains who made Gotham City famous" around before Batman doesn't really make any sense.
They could have Jack Napier be the villain in the first few seasons. It might be cool to see him in action before he became the Joker.
But whether it's him, or some crimelord named Sionis or Cobblepot or etc... If it's before they're really riding the crazy train, I don't see what the Batverse connection adds to it that makes it substantially different to any other cop show. (EDIT: That same issue is there if Gordon's going up against the Falcones, or corrupt cops/politicians.)
On the other hand, if actual costumed villains start showing up, either Gordon stops them himself and doesn't even need Batman; or they just keep murdering people and Gordon looks like a punk for not dealing with it.

So far, I'm loving Gotham! I hope is continues to grow and develop!
Its certainly watchable...
Well...my opinion has changed a little since my October 2nd post. I'm not finding the show as interesting as I did back then. Actually, I feel it has gotten a little boring,
I find myself losing interest in this show as well. Last week Penguin get the drop on Fish. This week, Fish turns the tables. Jim Gordon is out, then he's back in..
But we know the outcome already, cause this is a prequal.
I called it quits on this when Fish scooped her own eyeball out with a spoon.
I don't watch TV to see that.
c'mon man She fished her eye out don't you get it? lol
its meant to comic booky ya know? and she's very much a comic book villain, out of all the super hero shows (flash, ARROW, AOS) i like this the least but i think its starting to come into its own, however i nearly quit this show during 1a some of those episodes were so dull... argh
Gotham teases whats to come...
Overall it was an okay season. Not great, but not terrible. Will watch it when season 2 begins but it won't be a priority.
