Meet the Baddies of GOTHAM

This trailer focuses on the villains — present and future — that young Det. James Gordon (Ben McKenzie) will encounter on the increasingly mean streets of Gotham City in the Batman prequel series GOTHAM.

Looking at this clip suddenly made me realize a very HUGE problem facing the producers of GOTHAM: How to avoid making Gordon look like a failure and a screw-up! After all, he can hardly take down Penguin and Catwoman before Batman confronts them, so the entire series could be about how the baddies foil Gordon, the last good cop in the city.

Of course, the corruption of the GCPD could be the key to this problem: every time Gordon and partner Haevey Bullock (Donal Logue) arrests Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor) or Fish Mooney (Jada Pinkett-Smith) the dirty system puts them right back out on the street, thus Gordon is allowed to win many battles but lose the war.
