Another cool thing they added in the Pilot was many of the villains when they were younger. At first I didn't understand why they referenced to Penguin, Ivy and the Riddler so early on but then as I traveled back and reflected on it then it hit me how much they had grown to hate BATMAN and how all of their paths crossed long before they became villains. Even Cat Woman is following Bruce around and at the time he's just a kid.
THE BEGINNING: Of course anyone who follows BATMAN knows what happened to his parents but just in case you missed any of the details I'll give you run down; as they were walking down an alley on their way home after a family outing at the movies/theater they were robbed. In the process the robber shot and killed Bruce Wayne's parents but left Bruce alive. This brought Bruce to the place in his life where he wanted to get over his fears because of what he'd witnessed and experienced. He'd lost both parents leaving him to be raised by their butler and friend Alfred. In the Pilot of Gotham they depicted these events perfectly. Also I felt that the cast of Actors and Actresses did an amazing job telling the story. I didn't want the show to end and kept thinking, "OH MAN this needs to become the next BATMAN film." Over all I feel GOTHAM is on the right track and on track to becoming one of my favorite and must watch TV shows of the season. If you like a little thrill, a little action, a lot of fighting and good guys verses bad guys and in this case bad girls GOTHAM is definitely a show you wouldn't want to miss!
