Wow, to me it's the exact opposite.

I think Fish Mooney might be the most cringeworthy character on any show I've ever seen. I honestly can't even think of a close runner-up.

So bad.

[SPOILER - highlight to read]: Carter > all

Rant begins*

How the hell is it a stand-off between Fish and the Dollmaker's goons? If it was me, I would just toss in a bunch of stun grenades, followed by teargas, and by the time the morons in my basement collect themselves, they're all chained up. Even if you lose a few, so what? There are plenty more where they come from.

Even the doctor said tonight it will be an acceptable loss. So Fish [SPOILER - highlight to read]: digs out her eye with a knife. So what? She still has another one, doesn't she? Sorry, but this has been bugging me since last week. If she had pulled that crap on me, I would just have instructed my goons to aim low and go wild. After you've shot them all in the legs, they won't be so frisky any more. And Fish will be my *****.

Rant ends*

The more I watch this show, the more it grows on me. First, I had to accept it's a drama. But, it's an interesting drama, with interesting characters and interesting stories, not to mention an excellent cast. Once I accepted that, I could start relaxing and enjoy watching it, instead of sitting and waiting the whole time for the action to start, like in Arrow or Flash or Shield or Vikings. And I enjoy the fact that every now and again they allow themselves to be a bit silly, like with the Red Hood tonight.

Sadly, with Carter the opposite has happened. The longer it goes on the more I lose interest. Boring characters, boring actors and boring story lines.

I have a question, though. When is this show supposed to be taking place? I see they have cellphones, so is this taking place in the nineties?

I assumed the show to be taking place in present day.

I do have a question though for those who say they do not like this show. If given a choice would you rather watch Gotham or one of the 8,000 Law and Order shows out there?

It was actually a spoon, so all your points are invalid

My most profound apologies - I humbly grovel for forgiveness. As you so correctly noted, thus I have invalidated each and every point I made so laboriously.

However, since you didn't answer my question - I refute you thus: "There is no spoon!"

It can't be in the present day. Have you looked at their computer screens? They are all old and boxy - they actually look like the screens we had in the nineties. I haven't noticed any modern cars, either. I figure if this is telling the story of Bruce's past, and I assume Batman to be in his midthirties now, that would make this a show of Gotham about twenty years ago, which will fit with Bruce being in his early teens.

I just figured Gotham PD was so shitty they are behind in their computers.

But then someone said they have cell phones, that is an easy way to figure out the time frame. Were these the huge bulky cell phones from the late 80s-early 90s?

Seems somewhat like a mash-up of the 70's through 90's, but the mid-late 90's or even early 2000's isn't a bad guess. Lots of flip-phones and CRT monitors seen

My question is why not set it during present day? Period pieces always require more work, even if it's just from 15-20 years ago. I don't think the story would of suffered if they just said Bruce Wayne WAS a kid circa 2015.

After all due to the nature of comics this stuff does have to change. If he'd be in his mid 30's in present day that means he was born in the 1970s-1980s. Shows an obvious change, as Batman circa the 1940's and 1950's surely wasn't born in the 1970s, but the comics had to change with the times.

Meh not a big deal I guess, just something I find unnecessary.

They wanted gritty and the 90's were WAY grittier than 2014-15. How badass would Bullock look using a ****ing bent iPhone 6 while driving a Nissan Leaf? Exactly

I'm disgusted with both of those, now sure which disgust me more. Probably the Dr. being made into a beta-male

I'm still hoping Zuckerberg doesn't Asperger-out Lex. But I know it's likely

It was bad-ass when Bruce beat up that Bully and you know it.

I found the latest episode really entertaining. Each of the multiple plots had me interested.

Now If only they can give us that quality on a more regular basis then I'll become a big fan.

Haha Barbara is terrible. Best part of this episode was fish's cleavage....rest was terrible

Not sure if I'll be back for season 2, but riddlers descent into madness looks interesting and the bat cave revealed.

^ Her cleavage was nice, but it was completely overshadowed by that horrendous, fem-hipster hairdo/scalp-bedazzlement. sick

This season was just terrible on every conceivable level. Definitely will not be back for season 2. thumb up
