Gotham is a prequel and shows what happened in Gotham before Bruce Wayne became Batman. The ratings of the first season were alright. For that reason, the second season currently airs in the US.

Before the second season went on air, the first one was released on Blu-ray and DVD and it contains a nice bonus for fans: an Extended Version of the pilot. It is nice to have even though there is not an additional value. Mostly, the additional footage are slightly extended scenes, probably cut for pace reasons. Some of the shots are only 1 or 2 frames longer and in order to keep it simple, those will be not be listed completely. Any significant alteration will be listed though.

Compared are the TV Version and the Extended Version, both available on the DVD by 20th Century Fox.

There are 21 differences:
20 additional scenes/shots in the Extended Version
1 scene with alternate/extended footage
