'Pennyworth' is a rare prequel where knowing the ending makes it better

There are two ways to watch Pennyworth on Epix. 

The first is to take it at face value as a television show about a dashing former soldier starting his postwar life as a security consultant and running headfirst into a dark, sexy conspiracy at the heart of London. The second is to recall that Pennyworth acts as an origin story for Batman's butler and revel in that fact at every possible moment. 

The second way is much, much more fun.

Unlike Gotham, the now-finished Batman prequel series about Jim Gordon also produced by Pennyworth team Danny Cannon and Bruno Heller, Pennyworth thrives on the audience knowing the end state for its main characterGotham was a prequel that reimagined the origins of several Batman villains, Bruce Wayne, and the city of Gotham itself, which spread the focus of the show's inevitable ending across dozens of bizarre and surprising storiesPennyworth is laser-focused on Alfred, Thomas Wayne, and Martha Kane (soon to be Wayne), which makes it easier to concentrate on what eventually happens to all of them.  Read more...
