G.C.P.D (Original TV Show)


Recommended Posts

Let me start by saying that I am not a regular on these forums, but have been a member for the better part of a year. I am very eager to be apart of something as BIG as the Earth-2.net forums so sometimes I come across annoying. That out of the way after seeing TDKR a total of 5 times (every time getting slightly better), I had a few thoughts that I wanted to share.

The Idea of a G.C.P.D show was thrown around on WFP in an email response, but never really devoted that much time to. That is where this thread comes into play. The Dark Knight Rises takes place 8 years after the events of The Dark Knight. Now due to some wonderful exposition form Robi .... I mean Blake, we know that the streets have been "somewhat" clean for those years. I don't buy it. What I would like to believe is that there hasn't been much crime well Blake has been on the force. Sure we don't know when he joined, but he is a rookie. So what if directly after the events of 'The Dark Knight', everything wasn't resolved, but it wasn't so bad that the Batman was needed. Here is what I'm thinking:

We begin with a meeting between Gordon and Batman. Batman would be in silhouette and have hardly (if any) dialogue because he is not the focus. Gordon and the GCPD are.Batman is curious if the situation is so bad he is needed. Gordon tells him not to interfere, he's a wanted man. Gordon receives a call saying there has been a Batman sighting. He tells Batman to split, and once he does, so does Gordon. We see Batman fleeing the scene before the police arrive. He is still weakened by his injuries and is nearly caught by the GCPD, if not for Gordon interfering for him.

That is the setup. From there we are given so many possibilities. We could have new crime bosses like The Penguin, or have gangs such as one devoted to the efforts of the joker. Possibly run by Harley. So many minor bat Rogues could be introduced into this universe and still be grounded.

I'm not asking for this show to be made, or even suggesting it is a good idea. What I'm doing is throwing this our there to hear what everyone else thinks. And hopefully people do read this and post there thoughts, because if they don't Ill probably look like a fool. So please don't hold back any thoughts, and if you think I am way off base, say so. Thanks a lot!

Oh, and if not this, how about out of the Nolan-verse. A new continuity ..... with BRYAN CRANSTON as GORDON! That would kick some serious ass! :buttrock:

I think a GCPD show really can only work if you also have a currently-running Batman series. If you tried to do this show without already showing Batman elsewhere, it would only frustrate people and feel weirdly off-center, since all the important events in Gotham (dealing with Batman) would be happening off-screen.

So, yes, this would be a really cool show if it spun off from a proper Batman show.
