    Penguin is a smart one to add since he would've been operating long before Batman.

    Looking at the pics of the ladies who play Essen and Gordon's fiancee, there's no way they use the "Gordon cheats on his wife with Essen" storyline on this show in the future.

    Well, the reasons behind why someone cheats aren't really always as simplistic as "the other woman/man is hotter." And there's nothing wrong with the actress playing Essen. That aside, I think it's telling that (A) Essen is a Captain and Gordon's boss when, in the comics, Sarah Essen was a detective and his subordinate when they first met and (B) they don't actually give Essen's first name in the description. I think there's a good chance that she isn't Sarah Essen but a relative of Sarah's and that they'll introduce Sarah herself at a later point (if at all).

    Really? I thought the similar name was just a coincidence.

    That's really cool.

    That pointy jaw scares me. It could take your eye out.

    Great casting for Alfred, Sean Pertwee was awesome in Dog Soldiers, one of the best action horror movies of recent years.

    The Penguin. A younger, non-Commissioner Gordon. Bruce Wayne seemingly is not going to leave Gotham to train. A hardass Alfred.

    Anybody else getting a "Batman: Earth One" vibe?

    Maybe Alfred will blow Penguin away with a shotgun?

    From the looks of this Gotham is going to be as lousy with professional tough guys and badasses as Starling city is.

    It looks like young Bruce won't have to go too far to find roughnecks to teach him the ways of roughneckdom. :)

    That's assuming Alfred isn't teaching young Bruce himself.

    I like the choice of Gordon and this is startng to sound pretty good. I don't get to watch much television with having two kids but this looks like something I'll have to try and check out. Hopefully I can binge watch it on Netflix in a year....kind of like trade waiting
