Bruce Wayne has an unfortunate accident
with one of his prototype
crime fighting weapons.
I admit it. I watch Gotham. I love everything about it - the ham acting is worth the price of the ticket alone. How the actors can keep straight faces as they play their parts - I will never know. But they do - same way Adam West and his crew did for us kids back in the 60's. The adults on the show are all loons or criminal scum or incompetent. The kids are all mature, rational and capable. The show is a prequel - it revolves around the characters as youngsters. Bruce Wayne is about 14, as is the Cat Woman and The Penguin and Riddler and all the villains are young adults - before they became super heroes and super villains. Every episode ends with a nail biting cliff hanger too!
I feel sorry for the kids actually. There's a tempest in the tea pot going on right now amongst the nerds. From what I heard the comic book publishers are all pushing new age gender theory and political correctness; Captain America is now a woman, a bunch of the lesser ones are queers and pervs, and I think Spiderman's black now. And of course their sales are going through the floor because kids don't want to see dreck like that in their heroes. The nerds have retaliated and apparently are starting up a new line of graphic novels that will hopefully give the kids something they'll really like.
Now, if you'll excuse me - I want to go play Batman too! I will need one of my mom's tea towels for a cape, some clothes pins... and maybe Pop's lighter and a can of lighter fluid... and if one of you would be a sport and keep a fire extinguisher handy, I'll show ya what the kid in the gif above is doing wrong...
Have a good Tuesday!
