Jim 2010s

Aired: 2014-2019 (FOX)Gotham

DAD: Alfred Pennyworth (Sean Pertwee) / Bachelor

DAD’S JOB: Stately Wayne Manor Butler

KIDS: Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz) (10)

WHERE’S MOM?: Murdered by thugs – so was Dad

STAND-IN “MOM”: Detective Lt. Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie)

The prequel story for a famous TV Single Dad. I guess they couldn’t name this one “How I Met Your Robin.”

This is before Batman, before all the villains, even before the Batcave. This is future Commissioner Gordon’s story, but I’m sure we’re going to have lots and lots of Bruce Wayne moments as the series unfolds. History teaches us that for every Smallville, there’s a Wonder Woman reboot. Hopefully, they’ll be able to maintain the quality writing of the first season. Good luck, Gotham City!

In case you’re trying to place David Mazouz, he’s the hyper-intuitive kid from the old Fox TV Single Dad series Touch.
