Tonight: “Gotham” on Fox (9/21/2017)

Fans of the pre-history Batman series “Gotham” will be excited to find the series returning for its fourth season beginning tonight. This season will start its arc of tales with a premise called “Dawn Of Night”. As you can see in the poster, Master Bruce is now exploring his vigilante justice side a little deeper. I’m game. Here is one of the posters and some casting reminders.

Cast/Characters:
Ben McKenzie as James Gordon
Donal Logue as Harvey Bullock
David Mazouz as Bruce Wayne
Sean Pertwee as Alfred Pennyworth
Robin Lord Taylor as Oswald Cobblepot/Penguin
Erin Richards as Barbara Kean
Camren Bicondova as Selina “Cat” Kyle
Cory Michael Smith as Edward Nygma/Riddler
John Doman as Carmine Falcone
Morena Baccarin as Leslie “Lee” Thompkins
Jessica Lucas as Tabitha Galavan
Chris Chalk as Lucius Fox
Drew Powell as Butch Gilzean/Cyrus Gold
Maggie Geha as Ivy “Pamela” Pepper

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’ll keep this brief. I have been on and off with this show for a couple of seasons but really enjoyed the goings on with the third season. I am still not crazy about the introduction of so many villains in the Batman mythology because as lifers to the caped crusader can attest, a lot of characters became who they were BECAUSE of Batman’s existence. Not before he came to don the cowl and cape. Anyway, I will be programming this season as well and will likely catch up on the premiere the following morning. It’s been a little busy over here but what about you? Are you still watching or have just started or even given up on it entirely? Let me know down in the comments section below.

Observe The “Gotham: Dawn Of Night” Character Posters For Season Four

I know that some of you readers have stuck by the Fox television series “Gotham” which showcases a world before Batman and while its occasionally made me shake my head, I’ve still got it programmed on my DVR and am just too lazy to cancel it just yet. Season 3 had some strong moments and showed that this could be interesting and better going forward. Some days ago, a nice batch of character posters were released along with the official reveal that the first story arc will be “Dawn Of Night”. I like that little play on words since we did find the “Batman V Superman” film being known as “Dawn Of Justice”. I’ll follow the main show visual with the character posters. Check it out.

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.

The Cast:
Ben McKenzie as James Gordon
Donal Logue as Harvey Bullock
David Mazouz as Bruce Wayne
Zabryna Guevara as Sarah Essen
Sean Pertwee as Alfred Pennyworth
Robin Lord Taylor as Oswald Cobblepot/Penguin
Erin Richards as Barbara Kean
Camren Bicondova as Selina “Cat” Kyle
Cory Michael Smith as Edward Nygma
Victoria Cartagena as Renee Montoya
Andrew Stewart-Jones as Crispus Allen
Jada Pinkett Smith as Fish Mooney
Morena Baccarin as Leslie Thompkins
Jessica Lucas as Tabitha Galavan
Chris Chalk as Lucius Fox
Drew Powell as Butch Gilzean
Michael Chiklis as Nathaniel Barnes
Maggie Geha as Ivy “Pamela” Pepper
Benedict Samuel as Dr. Jervis Tetch

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.
