Time for a timely Extra Point! Ian is joined by Kris as they give a spoiler-filled review of both FOX’s Gotham and NBC’s Constantine pilot. As usual, we go over what worked and what needs improvement, the characters of both series and where they begin their journey, how the fracturing of DC’s television properties could wind up hurting more than helping in the long run, the pain of forcing references to the comics into a show *WINK*, Batman’s dead parents, and how Gotham is a lot more Smallville than it is Arrow. Oh, and Kris has quick rant about Star Wars: Scoundrels, by Timothy Zahn.
