PENNYWORTH
August 4, 2019  | By David Bianculli

Epix, 9:00 p.m. ET

 
Jack Bannon plays young Alfred Pennyworth, before he became the butler to young Bruce Wayne, in this prequel to both Gotham and Batman. But there are villains here also, and the plum role in these opening episodes goes to Paloma Faith as Bet Sykes. British pop singer Faith, in real life, is a lot more glamorous and flashy than her character is bring portrayed thus far – but it’s reasonable to presume that her character’s appearance, as well as her aggressive evil nature, might soon be amplified. In fact, I’d be willing to Bet on it.
