If it's true that a society is known by its most popular artifacts, we are becoming a culture of comic books and games. Our biggest film and TV characters are based on comic book super heroes and villains, while our real life heroes are professional athletes. Watching tonight's premiere of “Gotham,” I couldn't help feeling that if there was any new series that would probably crack Nielsen's Top 10 this fall alongside all the different primetime NFL games and pre-game shows, it would be this one from Fox. You tell me if that's a good or bad thing.
