    Did the young Bruce Wayne have a pet dog. Maybe we could have a series based on it.

    Of course I may well be wrong, but I'm struggling to think of a more pointless series to make than this. I can't even muster the tiniest bit of enthusiasm.

    Unless of course it turns out all along Alfred has been a Kingsman.

    So they went from boyish and good looking to haggard and musty characters? That means the show should be full of depressing turns of events that led to their weathered faces and views on life in an untrustworthy world constantly in need of change for the better.

    I will give this one episode and if it's anything less than amazing, I'll drop it quicker than Disney dropped James Gunn.

    Unfortunately I remember them quite well. We've had Mr M in Supergirl as I recall. I wonder if we'll see Bat-Mite in Gotham?

    Mr M was in Smallville and in Lois and Clark although nothing like the comics in looks. It was not until he was on one could I pronounce his name.

    Ironically I thought when I saw the title I thought the series was going to e about that evil clown of Stephen King.
    I was surprised how well Gotham been based on the earlier life of James Gordon although the stuck a lot of Batman stuff in it. And think Alfred been a good character although not fleshed out as good as most of the other characters in the series Sean Pertwee been good in the role .

    When I read that Paloma Faith would feature in is this, I thought it must be a wind up. Must admit I didn't know she acted as well as singing.
