Gotham

Channel 5. Gotham. Does anyone else watch it ?
I Thought it was quite good.
Seems a few new series on TV have potential such as THE Missing on BBC 1 only time will tell

I've seen the trailers for it but I don't do SciFi myself.

Re: Gotham

Sat through the first three and couldn't take anymore.
High production, but struggled with the characters, the storylines and the acting is some of the most appalling i've seen in some time.

What, worse than Under The Dome?

Re: Gotham

Bad acting doesn't matter as long as a program is entertaining.
Even the best actors in the world can't save some of the recent dire series to grace our tv screens.

I disagree.
For me generally poor acting detracts from the entertainment value.

It does. But Gotham isn't entertaining either unfortunately...

Watched the first part this morning and was immediately gripped. I think James Nesbitt is a great actor and liked him in Cold Feet.
7 episodes to go but I already have my theories - probably totally wrong, though Wink

Re: Gotham

Watched the first three and was enjoying but I've not watched the 4th yet. I'm delved into the walking dead which is awesome, currently season 2 episode 6.

Re: Gotham

Gotham's not bad. Not great though either. Think the penguin character is best at the moment. Fish is a bit Basil Exposition..
