is in it’s 4th season on FOX. As you know, I really enjoy my superhero shows and Gotham is definitely one of them. However, this is the only superhero show that my wife, Ashley
, watches with me. Which is a good sign for you, because that means this isn’t your typical nerdy niche superhero show. It’s got a great cast and has a very real, gritty vibe. It is in it’s 4th season, but it’s a great time to jump in because after several years of having Bruce Wayne be a young boy whose parents had just died, he has finally started to become a teenager and a vigilante. In fact, each season has a subtitle and this season’s is “A Dark Knight”, which is Batman’s nickname!
If you are a comic book buff, you’ll have to prepare yourself what is likely nothing like any of the comics, but for the rest of us this is a great, very realistic feeling of a classic superhero and the villains in his world. One of my favorite parts of this series is that the well-known Batman police officer, Gordon, is played by Ben McKenzie (of The OC fame). I definitely recommend this show to anyone looking for a darker show. This is definitely not your light-hearted comedy!
If you’re a completionist like me, I would suggest watching the season premiere of Season 4 to make sure you like the show, and if you do then you can catch up on Seasons 1-3 on Netflix.
