  1. Is Gotham S3 or is it S2 repeats as indicated in most EPGs? S3 doesn’t commence in the US until September. If it’s S2 repeats then, for those that have endured the wait for it to be held-back, then screened on Duke in SD, its finally in HD! Only 10 or 11 months after US release …

  2. S2 but as you point out this is the first time it’s screened here in HD. So technically, a TVNZ repeat but as it’s new to TV2, and as this site is devoted to highlighting HD premieres of note, I opted to award it “season premiere” status for those of us who have held off watching it until now. TV2 is burning it off in double-eps ahead of the Blu-ray release in September.

  3. Shocking to see that despite being almost a year old Gotham won its slot (albeit 10.45pm on a Sunday) with 22k viewers …
