Gotham: The Complete Third Season (DVD)
The stakes are higher than ever, as Super-Villains more ambitious and depraved are introduced, and a realignment of alliances shakes up the fight for power in Gotham. Season three of Gotham peels back the curtain on the infamous criminal organization known as the Court of The Owls. With the Indian Hill escapees on the loose, Jim Gordon must take matters into his own hands, as a bounty hunter in Gotham. He makes it his mission to find Hugo Strange and Fish Mooney. Meanwhile, GCPD’s Bullock and Barnes remain at the forefront of the fight against crime in the monster-ridden city. And Bruce Wayne discovers still more secrets behind his parents’ murder. As the city sinks deeper into chaos, Gotham’s Super-Villains will be joined by the future Poison Ivy, a young woman who's harnessed the full power of her charms; the Tweed Brothers; and a talented hypnotist teetering on the edge of madness who goes by the name of the Mad Hatter.]]>

The first order I received of this item came poorly packaged which resulted in the item arriving with a badly cracked case. They did replace it right away though.
The character of Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie) is developed this season when he becomes compromised morally, taking matters into his own hands as bounty hunter on the trail of the Indian Hill fugitives. The show emphasizes equally the characters of Gordon and Wayne.
“Smallville,” which ran for ten seasons, chronicled the life of Clark Kent before he became Superman. The writing was good, the episodes laced with humor, and the story arcs engaging. The creators of “Gotham” probably hoped for the same kind of success showing us the life of Bruce Wayne well before he donned the black cowl of Batman. But Batman is sorely missed from the series. It was more interesting to watch a teenaged Clark come to terms with his powers while also dealing with adolescence. The formula fails to create the same dramatic possibilities in “Gotham.”
The best thing going for the show is its regular parade of villains, which allows it to veer from predictable police procedural to something more in line with the DC Comics Universe. When the Riddler, Ra’s al Ghul, Mad Hatter, the future Poison Ivy, and the Penguin show up, the series is at its best.
Bonus materials on the unrated, widescreen 4-disc Blu-ray release include 2 behind-the-scenes making-of featurettes, 2006 Comic-Con panel, and deleted scenes. A digital copy is enclosed.
I hope DC and the producers can get this series back on track. It has a lot of potential but it would be nice if they stuck to the source material a little closer and focused less on...whatever it is they are doing.
