Tits For Telly: GOTHAM Premieres 8PM TONIGHT on FOX!


Well who would have ever thought we would ever see a Batman-centric show on network TV (not counting the newly released to DVD and Bluray 1960's version starring Adam West that comes out this Novermber). Premiering tonight (8PM, September 22, 2014) on the Fox Broadcasting Network, Gotham will take center stage, focusing on the origin story of Commissioner James Gordon as a rookie within the corrupt Gotham Police Department.

Starring Ben McKenzie as James Gordon, the story will revolve around one of the highest profile cases in Gotham City’s history - the murder’s of Thomas and Martha Wayne. Not only does the plot take viewers through the stages of Jim Gordon’s career, but will feature some of the most major player’s in Gotham, before they become the characters we all know and love, both heroic and villainous alike. Check out the trailer below!

Gotham (DC Comics / Warner Brothers / FOX / 2014 Trailer)

For season 1, it seems that the writers are digging deep in order to include a lot of our favorite would be heroes and rogues - Detective Harvey Bullock (Donal Logue), Detective Renee Montoya (Victoria Cartagena), a young and terribly tramatized Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz), Alfred Pennyworth - Bruce’s loyal butler and now guardian (Sean Pertwee), Selina Kyle - aka the future Catwoman (Camren Bicondova), Oswald Cobblepot aka the future Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor), Edward Nygma aka the future Riddler (Cory Michael Smith), and even Pamela Isley aka the future Poison Ivy  although cryptically named as Ivy Pepper for the series - hopefully to be cleared up at a later date - played by Clare Foley).

Of course some other fine actors have joined the show as well including Jada Pinkett Smith as Fish Mooney (the crime boss whom the future Penguin works for - just remember, what do penguin's eat?), Carol Kane as Getrud Kapelput (the Penguin’s mommy), and Zabryna Guevara as Captain Sarah Essen (Jim Gordon’s supervisor, whom, if you’ve read Batman: Year One, he has a torrid with whilst married to wife Barbara (portrayed by Erin Richards).

The gang here at good ol’ PU is both nervous (because it’s on FOX) and excited (because, well - it’s Batman) to see what transpires tonight! Will it hit all the right buttons for fans of the caped crusader? Will FOX actually stick it out after they've hooked everyone?

Only time will tell! Gotham starts tonight at 8pm on FOX. Let us know what you think of the premiere episode in the comments below!
