Just a Quickie Please: Gotham Review

Loved Gotham....Burton's vision meets a contemporary dark, hard, and fast style. This is the look and feel Nolan missed in his three incarnations. It possess solid storytelling although the acting is a little shaky, but I'll give them a few episodes to tweak that. It is extremely difficult to craft a new take on such an iconic and overtly repeated franchise, but this has tremendous promise. I am especially digging the focus on the villains'' back-stories, nice touch. Also, anyone else get the Easter Egg that the young Catwoman looks exactly like a young Pfieffer, nice nod Heller! Two wins for DC, Arrow being the other, but unfortunately there are so, so many fails that came before.
