When I started this blog about 5 years ago, I started off a series called TV Top 30, in which I work my way down a list of 30 topics related to TV. I like the idea of a good writing prompt, so I think I’m going to pick this up again. So here we go with my favorite new show that aired this TV season.
I know Marvel gets a lot of love here on my blog, but I’ve always had a soft spot for Batman. I cut my teeth on Batman: The Animated Series growing up, which is arguably one of the best animated series of all time. It still holds up. Kevin Conroy will always be Batman for me.
All that being said, I am perpetually fascinated by the glut of adaptations and reboots we have in today’s world of pop culture. I love the idea of what’s being done with Gotham, with a young Bruce Wayne and Catwoman, the young rogue’s gallery, and seeing the story unfold from Jim Gordon’s perspective.
I have not been able to finish the entire series yet, so please no spoilers in the comments (I think I got about halfway through the series before life got full), but I’d love to know what you all think about Gotham. I heard it sort of went down hill later in the season, but I’d like to think the entire world doesn’t share the same opinion.
What’s your favorite new show this season? The summer season counts too!
