Welcome to the Gotham TV Podcast hosted by Derek and John, an unofficial podcast about the Fox TV series Gotham and the connected DC comics and cinematic universe.
In advance of the TV shows’ launch we will be looking at news, casting and production and various other elements that make up the connected DC universe and how that might shape and influence the Gotham TV series. Once it launches we will bring in-depth discussion on each episode. We are looking to help to develop the community around this show and want you to be a part of the podcast. Any suggestions, feedback or opinions will be greatly appreciated.

From seeing the opening crawl of Star Wars as a kid through Batman ’89 right up to Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. I’ve had a fascination with geek culture. Particularly American geek culture. I’ve been a comic book reader all my life starting with the mini Marvel one page strips we had in Ireland in the 80s right up to Batman: Court of Owls and Death of The Family. The more I could get my hands on the better. Over the last few years I’ve been really enjoying watching the TV shows, Movies and Games that are connected to comics. I love seeing what creative people married with the amazing worlds I’m interested in can come up with. Don’t get me wrong there have been some awful examples but I’m always willing to watch or play them. I’m really looking forward to sharing that passion with you and getting as much feedback as possible from you all on everything from how we’re doing to your impressions on the show and your questions for us.

Growing up as a kid and through to adulthood I’ve gotten excited by comics, films and TV. My earliest memory of film was staying up late as a kid to watch Jaws only to get freaked out by the music and opening images!! That evening I made it only past those opening shots and credits of the movie. I still love the film Jaws. Some of my first comics that I ever bought were Doctor Strange, Terminal Man and Batman and I became engrossed in the stories and I adored the artwork. These characters are still important and central to the comics I enjoy along with others like Yorick, Wormwood, Cal MacDonald and Michonne (and her sword). TV for me took a uniquely British route for me in the science fiction direction with the Day of the Triffids, Blake Seven,Tripods and Doctor Who, which expanded in to US TV shows with the likes of Star Trek, X Files, V and the Invaders. TV shows like the Wire, Supernatural, Game of Thrones, Walking Dead, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and True Detective I just love because they create such great talking points with friends, family and colleagues and great shared experiences.
These passions for comics, TV and the movies are ever present and make me want to contribute and be involved with these characters and worlds that have been created for me, for us. In some small way this podcast provides that avenue for me to travel. I hope you can jump on board and come along with us for the ride. J
