The good. The evil. The beginning.Everyone knows the name Commissioner Gordon. He is one of the crime world's greatest foes, a man whose reputation is synonymous with law and order. But what is known of Gordon's story and his rise from rookie detective to Police Commissioner? What did it take to navigate the multiple layers of corruption that secretly ruled Gotham City, the spawning ground of the world's most iconic villains? And what circumstances created them – the larger-than-life personas who would become Catwoman, The Penguin, The Riddler, Two-Face and The Joker?Gotham is an origin story of the great DC Comics Super-Villains and vigilantes, revealing an entirely new chapter that has never been told. It follows one cop's rise through a dangerously corrupt city teetering between good and evil, and chronicles the birth of one of the most popular super heroes of our time.

    Though it abounds in diverting window-dressing, Gotham is literally all dressed up with nowhere to go: It's a derivative copy of a copy in search of a real governing identity.

    It's too dour and it takes itself too seriously, but it has potential.

    Darkly atmospheric origin series and movies have become a cliché.... But the strong cast could make this one fly.

    As hard as Gotham works to make Gordon a suitable hero, those who are not deeply immersed in the Batman universe may wonder whether the energy is well-spent.

    The mood and writing mix splashy comic book pulpiness with brooding film noir menace, sparked with bits of dark humor.

    Gotham reverses the normal superhero disguise: It is not a superhero dressed up in street clothes, it is a gritty noir dressed up like a superhero.

    The pilot itself is among the best you'll see this fall. It looks great, the two leads have instant chemistry, and everything hums along nicely as a slightly larger-than-life crime saga.

    Hitfix Full Review
  • Bruce Miller

    An absorbing, intelligent new drama that gives the Batman mythology one more layer of depth.

  • Ed Bark

    Gotham feels like a larger-than-life event. The challenge will be to build on that--or at the very least hold steady.

  • Verne Gay

    The Gotham opener probably makes the most compelling case of any newcomer this fall that at least one promise will be kept.

    Newsday Full Review
  • Hank Stuever

    Gotham respectfully riffs on the DC canon, but it’s a whole lot better when it experiments with--and even subverts--the oft-trod territory of Batworld.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Lori Rackl

    This gritty, atmospheric “Batman” prequel ranks as the fall’s best new drama on broadcast television.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Dan Greenfield

    Gotham does a great job of balancing the worlds of modern, mature comic books and the police procedural.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Jason Hughes

    Gotham is dark and unpleasant, but it's also exciting and unpredictable.

    The Wrap Full Review
  • Jean Bentley

    The actors bring an appropriate amount of camp to their performances, spitting out slick comic-book-speak with just the right cadence.

    Zap2it (Inside the Box) Full Review
  • Zach Hollwedel

    Gordon and the graft permeating the GCPD can be compelling enough to sustain a Gotham story in which Batman doesn't yet exist. However, without the foil of Batman, the villains run the risk of appearing cartoonish.

    Under The Radar Full Review
  • Ellen Gray

    Gotham features some intriguing performances. But just because it's on at 8 and derived from a comic-book franchise doesn't mean it's kid stuff.

    Philadelphia Daily News Full Review
  • David Hiltbrand

    In its early going, Gotham is hamhanded and a little bombastic, but drop-dead gorgeous.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Brian Tallerico

    This is solid, confidently made television, the kind of programming that has me interested in where it’s going next thanks to high production values and an expertly assembled cast. Full Review
  • David Wiegand

    While other comic book shows try to replicate the fantasy of the source material at every level, Gotham tries to walk a thin line between realism and fantasy. It seems to work--for now, at least. But you have to wonder about the challenges the series will face once those larvae become full-fledged, whackadoodle villains. Trying to have it both ways is courageous, but courage doesn’t guarantee success.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Brian Lowry

    The Fox series is a handsome, gritty crime drama, with Ben McKenzie as the idealistic young cop and Donal Logue as his grizzled, ethically compromised partner. Yet if the show is supposed to work for its peripheral connection to the Dark Knight and his colorful menagerie of villains before they became such...well, that bat simply won’t fly.

    Variety Full Review
  • Matt Zoller Seitz

    More troubling is the show's undercurrent of utter confidence, which sits uncomfortably with the clunky drama and borrowed style onscreen. Its best moments are carried by the actors; its worst might give you the disquieting impression that the makers of Gotham think you'll watch pretty much anything if the characters have the same names as characters from the DC universe.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Rob Owen

    It’s unclear from the pilot how all these players fit together.... Gotham could rebound from its overly familiar opening episode. Maybe the villains will become more than the sum of their early cameos. And certainly the presence of actors of the caliber of McKenzie and Logue, capably playing odd-couple police partners, offers promise.

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Full Review
  • Tim Goodman

    Agents of SHIELD always felt like a series that was missing a center (those superheroes), and it took a lot of episodes for the series to even find its own way and establish its own characters as at least semi-interesting substitutes to what you got at the movies. Gotham, on the other hand, arrives as its own entity, a wholly realized universe, in a separate time and place, with enough intriguing characters and a stylized visual presence that is immediately intriguing.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Patrick Gomez

    Not all of Gotham is as successful--a side plot involving Gordon's girlfriend Barbara Kean (Erin Richards) has yet to find its footing--but this dark (and cinematically shot) series will feel right at home as the lead-in to Fox's similarly toned Sleepy Hollow.

    People Weekly Full Review
  • James Poniewozik

    Gotham is not reinventing the dark cop show, or the dystopian drama, or the superhero genre. But it combines them in a way that’s invigorating–and, honestly, it’s probably better than a new series with this built-in fanbase needed to be.

    Time Full Review
  • David Hinckley

    Anyone who loves Batman, naturally, will be watching Gotham, and knowing the Batman world makes the show more fun. But it’s also surprisingly accessible to viewers who just like a good action-packed cop drama with a dry sense of humor. Up front, it looks like a bat-winner.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Vicki Hyman

    The city--neon-washed, Chanderlesque, somewhat anachronistic--is itself also a character, and it turns what could be "Law & Order: Gotham" into something infinitely more layered and watchable.

    Newark Star-Ledger Full Review
  • Jeff Jensen

    McKenzie is a winning mix of cockiness and righteousness. Even better is Donal Logue as his partner, Harvey Bullock—salty, slovenly, cynical. They're a dynamic dysfunctional duo. And while Jada Pinkett Smith's underworld boss Fish Mooney is tonally wonky, she's a bawdy blast nonetheless. The mystery of the Waynes' killing and the drama of the Penguin's ascendancy seem compelling fodder for season 1.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Marisa LaScala

    Some of the characters aren’t able to achieve the same balance between fantasy and realism as the rest of the show.... Thankfully, Mooney isn’t as central a figure here as Bullock or Gordon, who together are fully capable of carrying the series, even without young Bruce. Logue gives an especially strong performance as Bullock, an exhausted, veteran crime-fighter who remains likable and charismatic even as his various failings seem inevitable.

    PopMatters Full Review
  • Robert Lloyd

    McKenzie's best moments are all spent in his [new partner Harvey Bullock's (Donal Logue)] company. Bullock loosens him up even as Bullock puts him off, signaling that their uneasy partnership will become an easier one. He performs a similar service to the whole production, bringing it down to earth, keeping it from becoming too much of a comic-book gizmo with its wash of rain grays and rot rusts and spittoon bronzes and Frank Miller lighting effects.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Mike Hale

    As Gordon, Ben McKenzie is solid in a more theatrical version of the upright-cop role he played in “Southland.” Donal Logue is reliably blustery and sarcastic as Bullock. The biggest impressions are made by the villains, whose smaller roles are looser and more fun.... The real star of the Gotham pilot is its consistent style, a combination of production design, cinematography and writing that manages to evoke both the bang-pow 1940s spirit of the original “Batman” and post-”Blade Runner” neo-noir.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Matt Roush

    Gordon bristles with self-righteousness as he grimly takes the measure of Gotham's considerable underbelly. And that's where the lurid fun, such as it is, of Gotham can be found. And savored, as in Jada Pinkett Smith's sinewy nightclub gangster Fish Mooney.

    TV Guide Magazine Full Review
  • Mark Dawidziak

    Eventually, though, the series will need to get past some growing pains and mature into a drama that fully embraces the comic-book elements. You may have doubts about Heller reaching that destination, but, with this blazing a start, you'll want to be along for the thrill ride as he sets out to solve that riddle.
