GothamWe all know the story of Gotham, right? A prequel to the Batman story, Gotham follows Jim Gordon, a rookie detective, trying to clean up crime-ridden Gotham. Pretty straight-forward. The series opens with the murder of Bruce Wayne’s parents in an alley and the first episode follows the search for the killer.
