Have you seen the show Gotham? If so any thoughts?
Edward Nigma and Oswald Cobblepot were brilliantly realized even if not brilliantly written, but you can feeleveryone else trying so hard to sell the show, and you can practically smell them acting. It looks really good, but that’s not enough.
The performances mostly feel unnatural and the writing is stilted and cliched. I don’t even know if I’ll give episode 2 a chance.
You can’t really judge a show based on a pilot. The writers have to shove in so many important plot-points into a single hour that true character development doesn’t usually appear until the second or third episode. They can’t be subtle. They just don’t have the time.
