Did You Know?


The name Batman, and indeed Joker, is never used in reference to any character(s). The latter doesn't even get used as a word throughout the show's entire run. See more »


Jim Gordon having a mustache in his first few scenes and then subsequently not for the rest isn't a goof - he simply shaved it off! His wife even states as much, and this would be apparent to anyone who actually watched the _whole_ thing with half an attention span before rushing in to make such an ignorant claim (after seeing just the TV spots ahead of airing or whatever).

Bruce Wayne: Alfred... I'm writing to let you know I'm okay and that you won't hear from me for some time. But I will return... when I know I'm able to protect the people I love. When Gotham needs me... I will return.

Gotham finale
26 April 2019 | by rjcmilSee all my reviews

Very good ending to a crazy over the top show that was eminently watchable for 5 seasons. And directed by Erin Richards? Neat. Now I would have absolutely gotten the rights to use Danny Elfman's finale score from the original Tim Burton for that final shot!! C'mon! Someone at Warner Brothers couldn't make that happen???
