    Yeah - spouse was really enjoying the fact that he was picking up on future characters before I did: example - Penguin from the umbrella long before one of the others called him that. I expect we'll watch it again.

    Yes sir. A show revolving around a young Detective Gordon. Introduced about 5 classic villans and a 10 year old Bruce Wayne as his parents were murdered. Easter Eggs galore.

    The actor who plays The Penguin is awesome!

    PapaLew is loving it, because I'm really not into comic book characters the way he is/was. I'm usually way ahead of him in spotting easter eggs, but he kicked butt on this last night. Even a blind squirrel finds a nut every now & again! ;)

    That sounds really interesting, I'll have to find the first episode and watch it.

    Re: Gotham

    I was 50/50. I thought it started pretty cheesily and the dialogue was pretty bad (especially in the police station). Things really picked up in the second act and I liked it a lot more. I think pilots are generally some of the worst episodes when you look back on a show's run (with few exceptions), so I'll definitely keep tuning in.

    Read today that this series will also finally show an origin story for The Joker, which I think will be awesome.

    Did my fellow comic book nerds catch any additional easter eggs that I missed from the premiere?

    In the order I remember seeing them:

    1. Catwoman (meh so far on this storyline)
    2. E. Nygma (really liked the actor they chose)
    3. Penguin (also a really good casting)
    4. Poison Ivy (not sure they will go very far with this since the actress was so young)

    Any others I am forgetting or missed?

    Really like Donal Logue as an acter asn overall it appears that this show has been cast well. As long as the writing doesn't completely suck this show should be pretty good once they a few shows under their belt.

    PapaLew was rattling them off, but I missed most of the references. Now I know how he feels during the "Star Trek Wars" the boys & I have. ;)

    I'll have to check it out. I set it to record on the DVR but have been skeptical about anything super hero related recently.

    Good rundown of all the comic book easter eggs from the first episode. Obviously spoilers if you haven't seen the episode:

    Have not watched yet. I fear it will be like the CW shows and be too corny/kid oriented.

    Re: Gotham

    Given that this show is on Fox and appears to be getting g good reviews will the whole season actually be aired before it gets cancelled?

    I am waiting for the time when FOX cancels a series mid episode. Goes to commercial and never comes back.

    Umm no it's not like that at all. The murder of Bruce Wayne's parents was pretty damn violent.
