    I was looking forward to this new series but the trailer is a bit shit.
    I'll still give it a go though. Starts on Monday.

    So it's Batman without Batman or any of his enemies or anything that makes it interesting.

    It starts with the murder of Bruce Wayne's parents. Instead of fast-forwarding 20 years, like a Batman story normally does, it stays there. We get to see the Gotham city that forms Batman and his enemies. There is a young Oswald Cobblepot, Edward Nigma, and various other famous characters, including what looks like Cat Woman, and Poison Ivy. I think it has potential, and will be giving it a look.

    Ah, so it's basically Smallville but with less prissy teen angst and more drug dealing.

    Why is Jim Kerr from simple minds playing Comissioner Gordon.

    this has got some excellent reviews, there is a 'buzz' around it. I'll watch it when I've finished Defiance.

    I'm more interested in the Flash, i'd rather watch actual superheroes and superpowers. I'm bored of the gritty realism. had enough of that with the Nolan movies.

    A screener of the first episode was leaked a couple of months ago. The series is due to start in October.

    no but the first episode found its way onto Piratebay. A leak, either from a reviewers copy or closer to home, I don't know. Its very good though, I'll certainly be watching the rest of the series when its officially out

    is really quite good. Often a sries can't mantain the promise of the pilot though so we will see.

    sean pertwee as alfred is one of many well know actorly faces. They've introduced three villains, including catwoman and penguin. Although they are nascent villains

    I enjoyed it too. But there were 4 known villains, that I spotted (possibly 5).

    oh the comedian at fish's club, yeah thinking on it I recon you may have that correct.

    I've just seen it mentioned that there may be a few red herrings re: the Joker. So, it probably isn't that guy :hmm:

    we can be sure on riddler tho, the senior copper called him nigma
     
  21. fishfinger

    fishfinger تپلی

    Yes. All the other characters mentioned are certainties.

    I enjoyed it, I hope they don't fuck the rest up.

    The Joker was (in the excellent Alan Moore "A Killing Joke") a failed night club comedian who was talked into wearing the red hood by a gang of criminals.
    So it could have been him auditioning for Fish, it would make a reasonable back story to his introduction to criminals.
    I would lock in Poison Ivy, Riddler, Penguin and Catwoman.

    He seems to be a bit different from the usual choices for Alfred. I can see this Alfred wading into a bar brawl with a club.

    younger Alfred being hard? that would be good. Pertwee's done his share of the action as well, Dog Soldiers is a great brit werewolf film
