Re: Fox Developing "Gotham" Young Jim Gordon Series

I still think it'll basically boil down to a load of origin stories without the costumes. Like Smallville..
But with the interesting twist that the main viewpoint will be that of a supporting character, Gordon, rather than the future superhero himself. And without the crutch of "meteor freaks" to fall back on.

Anyway, TV is a "What have you done for me lately?" business. If the makers of Gotham intend to copy any other DC series, it won't be Smallville, which ended three years ago, but Arrow. Arrow is a show that features comics characters quite heavily, often enormously reinterpreted, but fit into the show's world so effectively that viewers are generally fine with it.
