Decided to try out Gotham because, why not? New season TV is always worth checking out. And cos comic book.
Design wise, Gotham reminds me of the 90’s Batman cartoon. The layout of the police HQ would be insane in real life, but it looks really cool. They seem to be using the same filters as CSI New York. Which makes sense as Gotham basically looks like New York but with some gothic looking buildings added to the landscape.
The overall feel/mise-en-scene of the show is something similar to Sin City. Scuzzy, grey, suspect and questionable characters populate the city. With the one shining beacon of hope that is Jim Gordon. Who wants to solve the murder of the Waynes. And since the police system is corrupt and owned by gangsters and whatnot, he has to do that on the down-low.
