I love this show. A very interesting premise and I dig detective Gordon.
Barbara Gordon is hot, but a former drug using lesbian who used to be involved with a MCU investigator?
Her appearances are more than just good eye-candy. In spite of her looks, I actually do not like her! (not the actress, she is talented at looking so hot, but making me so much hope she gets flushed down the sewer with Penguin - a character that I'm really enjoying).
I love the Mafia angle on this show. Very much in-tune with the Nolan universe.
Another question about Barbara.
In the Adam West show, Barbara was Gordon's daughter who becomes Bat Girl.
Now it is actually possible, that a daughter is named after her mother. So there are 2 Barbaras.
That's fine. And this show will NOT have a Bat Girl, as Bruce is way too young to become Batman. This show is about Gordon.
I think Selena Kyle should be younger though. She might be the same age as Bruce, but maybe taller because girls mature first? I don't know. I think it could be good to have her younger than Bruce, but the story's not doing that.
Also in the Nolan universe, in Batman Begins, Gordon has a wife named Barbara - and a son. I think by Dark Knight, he also has a baby daughter, but no name is given. Again, the daughter could also be named Barbara.
Now I have to ask myself why I care so much.
I prefer Batman with no sidekicks, no Robin, no Bat Girl. In the end, if in the Nolan universe when Christian Bale hangs up his cape, if the cop turning super-hero becomes Night Wing (or another Batman) with nothing to do with any Robin, I'd be really good with that.
I am now finding the Adam West series almost unwatchable unless I'm in the mood for campy and laughs.
