I loved it. I thought that it was a great blend of grit and camp - like the best of both comic takes on the Batman stories. That will be a difficult balance to maintain, so it remains to be seen how they do it. The best thing about it is that it left me wanting more. We all know Gordon's gonna become police commissioner, but now I'm fascinated by how the show is going to get him there. Will he be able to maintain his integrity, or will he have to make compromises along the way in a city that seemingly leaves him no other choice?
I agree about it leaving me wanting more. Really interested to see where this show goes!
Not my type of show, but I just wanted to leave a quick comment to congratulate you on the new TV Fanatic gig Allison. Welcome!
Henry A. Otero Ahhh thank you!
I enjoyed the show. Even though I have seen this plot line in various forms before this one was well done. I'll keep watching.
I liked it. But I have to see where it goes from here.
Bonnie Maynes Agreed. It is a decent starting point.
I like the new look Liz and look forward to seeing her develop but I wish Tom was dead and not out there to mess with her again. That was so season 1. No surprise with Naomi's finge, seems to be standard fare these days and I was hoping for something more imaginative. This show really does make good use of music.
The show has always done a great job with the music. It adds so much to the episodes.
BRING ZIVA BACK. She is worth as much as anyone on that show!
The fast pace was different but may have been appropriate since the writers choose aircraft for the pilot (pun intended) and they needed to land. And the car/plane network connection thing was a real stretch but great product placement by Ferrari. Hopefully the characters will get a chance to develop over the next few episodes. Heck, Under The Dome made it through two seasons. Although this does sound like a bit of a rip off of Syfy's Alphas.
Glenn H This is true. The planes on a deadline did help explain why there was such a fast pace to it. Personally, it got annoying. I get it. Time is ticking. Stop reminding me of it. There are definitely interesting characters, and I really hope they get the chance to shine. Ugh, Under the Dome. WHY?! I actually haven't seen Alphas. I wanted to then I found out there was a huge cliffhanger, so I am kinda saving myself the pain.
We know that Liz is not the daughter of Red because he said he's not (he withholds information, not lies) and Naomi said where the daughter was located (not with the FBI in DC). I'm hoping that they don't drag the pieces out over the course of too many episodes and that particular story arc can be ended quickly. That's just too gruesome to fathom watching for an entire season. The only interest in Berlin I have at this point is who actually cut up his daughter and when the two of them are going to be on the same page going after that person, because as bad as Red is he is not sadistic. Also, he targeted the Stewmaker as revenge for that girl's death. The Stewmaker made bodies disappear into soup so how did the pieces end up being sent to Berlin? Was that even his daughter's pieces he was getting? Tom is still alive -- his name is in the credits. Frankly, if they wanted to make that a surprise they should have removed his name from the credits. Ruining a surprise to appease an actor's ego -- disappointing.
It was ok....i'll defiantly tune it next week.But once the originals makes it's return and on Mondays no less,Gotham will become a show i download.
I was looking forward to this show, but sadly was disappointed.I just wish that writers in general would talk to techinal-/science-/... advisors from time to time. Most of the "techno-talk/solutions/stuff" just does not make sense or is just plain wrong. I'm not saying it has to be a 100% fact checked, but the are so many errors in the pilot, I just got too frustrated too really enjoy it. Especially since it's a big part of the story.There are other shows with the same problem but they compensate through their characters/comedy/weirdness, which Scorpion doesn't.I like the BBT&CBS summation and if Scorpion would copy the part of being mostly right (not worlds of) on the technical stuff from BBT the show would bee a lot more appealing to nerds/geeks like me.
I can understand why. I know nothing that advanced about some of the technical things, but if I did, I would get annoyed with it too. You would think that the writers would have an advisor for each of the people's specialty.
