Fox debuted their new Batman prequel spinoff last night, aptly named Gotham, to satisfying viewership that even garnered the series a rating of 96% on Rotten Tomatoes. Led by Benjamin McKenzie from The OC and Jada Pinkett-Smith, the show sparked trending status on twitter that continued days past its initial premiere. View the mostly positive, but still mixed, reviews of Gotham from twitter users – and some twitter using celebrities – below.

Bad acting. Horrible treatment of the source material. Batman & Robin level bad. #Gotham.

The cast of #Gotham is PERFECT. Everyone. Oswald Cobblepot is standout. Gordon is heroic. Bruce is heartbreaking…

Some day, I will be able to watch Ben Mackenzie on my TV and not sing Phantom Planet. Just, not today. #gotham
