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.
The Premise: Pennyworth follows the Wayne family’s legendary butler, Alfred Pennyworth, a former British SAS soldier who forms a security company and goes to work with Thomas Wayne in 1960s London.”
The Cast and Characters:
Jack Bannon as Alfred Pennyworth
Ben Aldridge as Thomas Wayne
Ryan Fletcher as Dave Boy
Hainsley Lloyd Bennett as Bazza
Paloma Faith as Bet Sykes
Jason Flemyng as Lord Harwood
Emma Paetz as Martha Kane
Polly Walker as Peggy Sykes
Jessica Ellerby as The Queen
PiercingMetal Thoughts: My first knowledge of the character of Alfed was with the original and oh so very classic “Batman” television series that I enjoyed as a young boy. I was watching it as syndicated reruns back then but had to admit that I thought he was great as the assistant to the Batman. He was just one of many fine actors to portray the role over the years. Now while I enjoyed the aforementioned trailer and mostly enjoyed “Gotham”, I am still not sold on a pre-history of Alfred Pennyworth no matter what they say. I want more superhero shows and since I don’t subscribe to Epix I will not be able to give this show the once over even On Demand. Oh well, that is the way the cable cookie crumbles right? What about you readers? Do you subscribe to this channel and will be giving the show a little of your time? Chime in down below in the comments section and I’ll see you next time.
