It was just about a month ago when we shared the Second Season Official Trailer for the Epix Original series “Pennyworth”. It was a pretty exciting clip so if you missed it just click HERE to be up to speed. The show begins its weekly airing on that premium cable network today so let’s review the show poster, premise and casting before my editorial closing thoughts.
The Premise: Pennyworth explores the early life of the titular Wayne family butler, Alfred Pennyworth, a former British SAS soldier who is forming his own security company in an alternate London which combines aspects of London in the 1950s and 1960s with invented events and practices (for example, televised public executions). Alfred becomes a target of the Raven Society, a group conspiring to take over the British government, and begins working against them alongside American agents of the No Name League, Thomas Wayne and Martha Kane, the future parents of Bruce Wayne/Batman.

Fans of Bruce Wayne’s butler Alfred Pennyworth will be excited that the Epix Original Series “Pennyworth” has been granted a second season. The show takes place before he becomes the gentlemen’s gentlemen to the Dark Knight and is a spy-intrigue thriller sort of thing. The second season trailer was just released and I’ve embedded it for your perusal along with some premise and casting that were sourced from provided publicity. Take a look.

It was just over a month ago when I made the readership aware of the brand new Epix Original Series “Pennyworth” with a trailer broadcast that can be reviewed HERE if you happened to miss it. This Warner Brothers Television series brings us back in time to learn the beginnings of the famous butler Alfred Pennyworth. The series begins tonight on that cable network and you can review some premise and casting after the poster.
It wasn’t too long ago that the final episode of the Batman pre-history series ended after several thrilling seasons and while initially I was slightly against it, when it all came to the dramatic ending I rather liked it. Now let’s get talking about “Pennyworth” which goes further back in time and is revealing the ancient history of Bruce Wayne’s faithful manservant, Alfred Pennyworth. The trailer for the show just dropped so take a look down below and then review some premise and main casting. I will come back at the close for good measure.
Fans of the pre-Batman history of Gotham City and all its ne’er do wells will be excited to know that the third season of “Gotham” will premiere this evening on the Fox channel. Check out the poster below and some brief insight.
The premise of the new season is called “Mad City” and I will have to assume that this comes from how the second season ended. I’ll leave that exact detail out of this post in the event that some of you are still trying to catch up on Netflix or something else.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: So I should start by saying how I ended up setting the whole season on DVR since I was hitting a lot of shows on the same nights that it was airing. Better to catch up a day or so later than missing it right? Anyway, I must admit that this season took me a lot longer to get through than I might have wanted it to and that is very simply because I was losing interest in it week after week. I am not against a Batman pre-history at all but when they keep introducing character after character that I know Batman never had as enemies until he was in the cape and cowl just annoys me. I guess I am a stickler for some traditions. So I am going to be programming this one again and will perhaps watch after a few weeks have gone by to see if I am going to keep letting it record. What about you readers? Are you watching the show and still enjoying it? Let me know what you think in the comments below.
