"Unlike fellow superhero spin-off series Agents of SHIELD, Gotham doesn’t fall flat. It doesn’t miss the point, and it gives us more of what we love with a new and fresh spin. We get more darkness and more iconic villains all without any costumed japes (not yet anyway). Where Agents went wrong is that its characters were bland nobodies that the audience had never heard of nor cared about. They could be anyone anywhere, and only the occasional minor-villain birth or Samuel L. cameo kept it within the world of the Marvel universe. Gotham is different. The characters already have an established fanbase, and this is just the tale of how they earned it.”
