I'm actually pleasantly surprised by it, I think they have captured the penguin perfectly and I like the way its focused aroung Jim Gorde. The only complaint I have with it is with the little Easter eggs. Easter eggs are supposed to be subtle but with this show they are leaping out at you. Other than that I think its great
Well a lot easter eggs are fairly obvious if you're a comic fan where as for the uninitiated they can seem subtle like the ones used on the CW series Flash and Arrow which hint at future enemies. Prime example of this in the pilot for the Flash they have a broken cage with a liscense plate saying "GRODD" hinting at Gorilla Grodd being on the loose after the accident that gave Flash his powers.
