If you've never thought about it this way, you might be surprised to learn that Fox's pre-Batman drama "Gotham" would actually make a great grindhouse flick. If you edit the show down to its most violent, sexy, exploitative and excessive moments, it really does play like a throwback to the extreme '70s genre. Fortunately for those of you wishing to see this experiment come to life, "Gotham" has done the edit for you -- and the show has unleashed the full length trailer for "Babs & Tabs" on the world.
The clip goes full grindhouse, including the delightfully dark voiceover and weathered, gritty film effects that have come to symbolize the genre over the past few years. The spot highlights Barbara Kean and Tabitha Galavan, the two bad girls of Gotham willing to lie, cheat, steal and kill their way to the top and give in to every single one of their gleeful, maniacal indulgences.
"Gotham" returns to Fox on Monday with the latest episode of season three, an installment titled "Time Bomb." The synopsis for the episode reads:
