The End Of Gotham

The final episode of Gotham airs on E4 tonight, but I've already watched it.

I noticed that Netflix had put it up, so decided to catch it last night rather than wait until the usual thing I do and watch on Monday.

The episode was set ten years after the events of the most recent episode and it closed with Bruce Wayne as Batman.

It was the first - and last - proper look of Batman in the series that was mainly about the ascension  of Jim Gordon from detective to commissioner of Gotham City as well as the rise of some of Batman's eventual major villains like The Joker, The Riddler, The Penguin and many more.

I enjoyed watching the series over the years, but - I have to be honest here - there were times when I found it a struggle. I guess the TV situation over here in the UK wasn't a help as we fell almost a year behind the US at one point.

I'm going to be sad to see Arrow conclude later this year, but I don't feel any sorrow to see Gotham end.

As a prequel Batman series it did what it set out to do.
