Storyline

In crime ridden Gotham City, Thomas and Martha Wayne are murdered before young Bruce Wayne's eyes. Although the idealistic Gotham City Police Dept. detective James Gordon, and his cynical partner, Harvey Bullock, seem to solve the case quickly, things are not so simple. Inspired by Bruce's traumatized desire for justice, Gordon vows to find it amid Gotham's corruption. Thus begins Gordon's lonely quest that would set him against his own comrades and the underworld with their own deadly rivalries and mysteries. In the coming wars, innocence will be lost and compromises will be made as some criminals will fall as casualties while others will rise as supervillains. All the while, young Bruce observes this war with a growing obsession that would one day drive him to seek his own justice against the evil of Gotham as The Batman.

Great at its best, but it's often not at its best
25 May 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I've been very frustrated by Gotham. The premise is solid. The characters are interesting. The actors are generally excellent. The atmosphere is wonderfully seedy. The overall story arc of corruption is quite good.

But from episode to episode, the quality varies widely. Much of the problem is the crime-of-the-week format. While the various side stories are generally quite good, the main investigation is often rather dull. And that's a huge hunk of the show. Gordon himself is a decent character but he's less interesting than Penguin or Selena or Nygma, yet gets more screen time than all of them put together.

Some episodes are great, and most episodes have great segments, but at times (as during the dreary, 3-part, serial-killer episodes), I've considered giving up on the show altogether.
