Re: Fox Developing "Gotham" Young Jim Gordon Series

Most likely Bruce will have no close family after his parents' death and Alfred will be his legal guardian. Maybe Lucius Fox will be a recurring character (I don't think he's going to be a regular, at least not at first). He could be the one running Wayne Enterprises.

Actually, him being pushed out (by Mr. Earl, perhaps? ) and trying to regain control would be an interesting subplot, if done right. Yeah, I'm being fanboyish, but I can't help wanting this to be as close to Nolanverse as possible.

Good point. Bruce should have a younger cousin, then. Named Jayne or something. But everyone would call her Robyn.
You probably kid, but I don't see that as a necessarily bad idea.

Here's the show's logo and synopsis on the Fox website.

Well, whoever wrote that copy was good at making it sound interesting, at least. I guess if they stay true to the premise and keep the story mainly from Gordon's viewpoint, that could be an interesting twist on the prequel-origin approach, looking at it from the outside.

^ I'd rather that than have it merely be Smallville but based on Bruce Wayne instead of Clark Kent.

The logo is cool. I've heard that the look of the show will be a blend of Blade Runner style futurism and Dick Tracy style retro. The logo reminds me of the animated series from the 1990s, which makes me think this is true.

It did place it in the best light possible, but it still sound both over and under-cooked at the same time.

I just hope the pilot was re-written after reading the rough draft. It was decent, but very spotty in parts.

Isn't that pretty much a given? That's why they call them rough drafts. Even "final" drafts routinely get rewritten, and further changes can be made in shooting, editing, and dubbing.

I wonder what a show would be like if they didn't do those things. You get one draft to write the script. Each scene must be shot in a single take.

Might be a fun experiment to watch.

See TNG: "The Neutral Zone." It was produced during the 1988 writers' strike and thus had to be shot from a rough draft. And it shows. I'm sure they got to do multiple takes, of course, but I'm not sure how much they would've been allowed to change lines on set.

Each scene must be shot in a single take.
See any recording of a live production. They were common in '50s TV, and there have been a few attempts since then to do live episodes of various shows. See also early videotaped productions like the first several seasons of Doctor Who. They didn't have much in the way of video editing tools, so they had to shoot each episode straight through like a live broadcast and were only permitted to take a maximum of three recording breaks per episode in case of a major error that required a retake or a change of scenery that couldn't be done live (e.g. characters moving from the interior to the exterior of the TARDIS).
