Gotham finale: disappointment or delight

Recommended Posts

I felt the need to express my discontent with the finale of Gotham last night.  While I accepted initially the show's premise and stuck with it knowing we'd never get what we wanted with it, I nonetheless enjoyed it over the years, especially when they would go back to their version of the Joker.  The showrunners recently said in an interview that they were "keenly aware" of how viewers were disappointed with the finale episode of Smallville in that there really wasn't any shot of full-on Superman in the suit, implying they would not do that with Gotham.  And yet, that is exactly what they did!  The ads and trailers really ramped up a showdown with a full on Batman vs their full on Joker, but *SPOILERS* they did not deliver what what promised.  I kept looking at the clock thinking, man, they've got 30 minutes to deliver...now 20 minutes....now 15 minutes...then their Joker and Harley started up, it was over just as fast.  I found myself literally shaking my head in annoyance at the last shot of the series.  Maybe that's just me, maybe I expected too much.  But they went to the trouble of designing, creating the makeup, and promoting their Joker, and they did have a Batman suit according to another interview, so why feature them so little?  It made me also realize I have a lot of unresolved anger from Smallville that apparently I've never dealt with.  I suppose chuk the Gotham finale into the bin with various other disappointing last shows, along with Lost.  Now I'll try to lower my expectations for the finale of GoT I guess.
