I'm enjoying it so far. The only person I have a problem with so far is Alfred.It's probably because he's acting completely different from the Alfred's of past movies/shows.
I actually like the way Sean Pertwee portrays Alfred in Gotham - in some Batman comics he was portrayed as an ex SAS member/mercenary-for-hire- it's actually also referenced in The Dark Knight
Alfred Pennyworth: With respect Master Wayne, perhaps this is a man that *you* don't fully understand, either. A long time ago, I was in Burma. My friends and I were working for the local government. They were trying to buy the loyalty of tribal leaders by bribing them with precious stones. But their caravans were being raided in a forest north of Rangoon by a bandit. So, we went looking for the stones. But in six months, we never met anybody who traded with him. One day, I saw a child playing with a ruby the size of a tangerine. The bandit had been throwing them away.
Bruce Wayne: So why steal them?
Alfred Pennyworth: Well, because he thought it was good sport. Because some men aren't looking for anything logical, like money. They can't be bought, bullied, reasoned, or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn.
Either way, I'm loving the show so far and can't wait to see how they flesh out all of the characters stories. I'm just wondering though.. which direction will they take them? The Burton/Schumacher way? Or the Nolan way (albeit we didn't see The Riddler, The Penguin in Nolan's visioning of Batman).

I am very interested in The Riddler, and how he is helping the police at this early of a point in his life.I notice you don't see him much, so I am guessing that this season is about Fish, Falcone, and Penguin.Perhaps Riddler will get his own season, later.
I did not know that about Alfred, Phunk.Thank you for pointing that out.
My thing is that this is a very young Alfred than we all know.You are talking 15 or 20 years from the Alfred we all grew accustomed with whether in comics or film.And he is trying to raise a boy that just lost his parents with instructions from the father to "let the boy make his own decisions".That has got to be very hard.I have no problems with how Alfred is portrayed.It was difficult at first, but once I told myself that this a man 20 years younger than I knew him from the books, it all comes into focus.We all have changed A LOT in 20 years.
