New Batman origin series starting on Fox this fall. Thoughts?

Meh. I've been Batmanned out by Nolan's trilogy, TBH.

It's Fox. They'll find a way to screw the pooch on it. They probably saw the success of Arrow and were all "Let's get in on that cash cow" and just grabbed the most-known DC property they could. :?

Plus, what happens when you get the same characters showing up in both series? Much like what's going to happen with Quicksilver between Xmen and Avengers. :? Confusion. "Is this the same guy?"

I'm holding out hope. At least it's not on NBC. They would just run one season, move it around every other week and then cancel it with no warning leaving a cliffhanger.

Saw the premiere the other night. Wasn't bad. An interesting take. Though I'm not sure if it's a good idea to show so many villains before they were villains so soon. Almost think they should just stick to making it a gritty take down the mob and root out corruption show. And they definitely had a different take on Alfred.

I didn't want to watch it but glad I did. The actor behind Gordon is brilliant. Grittier than I expected but still comic book. I'll keep on it for now.

Still loving it. Like the way they are portraying Alfred. Bit of a hardarse there.

Okay, I'm starting to like this show. :) Really getting into Penguin's story. It's actually surprised me how well it's been going. We'll see how it handles Bat-Boy.

The guy playing Penguin is amazing. He was the reason why i was so excited to watch every episodes from season 1.

Season 2 started really well. I love the guy playing Jerome.. though he is now obviously not the Joker like I thought at first.

YES. Though I'm still not convinced he's dead. ;)
