The Bat Cave and new characters revealed in first Gotham Season 2 teasers

07.24.2015

Many of you did not like Gotham's first season. As the person who revieweed all of those episodes, I did see a glimmer of quality that exists but was often squandered to make connections back to the various villains from the pages of DC Comics. With season two subtitled "Rise of the Villains", I am not sure if it is going to be any different. Still, these first teasers of footage from the new run looks promising.

In the first, Jim Gordon is still on his crusade to clean up Gotham City but now has to contend with Oswald Cobblepot who has risen to power in the city's underworld. We also get quick looks at James Frain's character as well as Edward Nygma, the proto-Joker character Jerome, Mr. Zsasz, and several more. The brief tease doesn't reveal too much but it does look like showrunner Bruno Heller is focusing more on character development rather than forced Batman villain references.

The second teaser is a bit more blunt as it picks up from the scene in the finale of season one when Bruce Wayne and Alfred discovered a secret passage in Wayne Manor. This teaser simply shows them finding a stairwell that leads to a door locked with a keypad. The Gothic looking door can clearly only lead one place but I doubt that they will be calling it the Bat Cave. I am still not a fan of how they are developing Bruce Wayne, but I am still willing to give them some rope to see if they hang themselves with it.

Gotham, despite fan criticism, was one of the higher rated new series last season, so I would anticipate that it will finish a complete second season. The new episodes debut on FOX Monday, September 21st.

I couldn't finish season 1... I stopped caring like 6 episodes in.

I gave up. It turned into a by the numbers cop drama with overacting villains. You can't try to be serious and have Penguin and Fish Mooney running around acting like they belong in the 60s series.

Whenever James Frain shows up in a TV series...

...quality starts to dip and shows become disappointments:
True Blood became just silly after the season Frain was in.
Okay, Agent Carter was a snorefest from the beginning
Orphan Black jumped the Shark this season when he had a guest arc.
Then there was that trainwreck called: The Cape...
And now Gotham, which already was sub par in season 1.

Not that it is his fault. It feels more like he is cursed. Wherever he goes, bad writing and directing is about to happen.

He is similar to Summer Glau and her shows getting cancelled:
The Unit, Alphas, The 4400, The Cape (again) and of course Firefly all got cancelled after the season she came aboard. With Terminator SCC and Dollhouse it took two seasons. Now The Arrow seems to be the only show that survived Summer Glau

lol he's just a TV actor circuit person. That's how he makes a living. He's also on True Detective Season 2, and it's all good.

They better make the second season much better than the first one. I'm surprised it wasn't canceled.
