Producer Greg Berlanti is to comic book superheroes what Donald Trump is to tweeting. They just can't stop themselves.

The best part of the new series is that unfussy, effortless way of getting Kate's sexual orientation out of the way, and also Kate herself.

The whole show is very, very interested in being diverse, and it's so obvious it's cringe-worthy.

The CW Arrowverse show twists the classic superhero tropes to make for a deliciously promising tale of a young woman struggling to find her path. It's relatable until she just ultimately chooses vigilantism instead of community college.

The show still has much to prove, and could get much better or worse from here, but as far as pilots go, this is a decent beginning.

With Arrow fast approaching its end, Batwoman can easily pick up its grimdark mantle within the Arrowverse and run with it.

A pretty solid introduction...Batwoman quickly proves that it's worth your time.

Oct 7, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Batwoman is ultimately painful to watch and a struggle to get through, lacking finesse, emotional depth, and a sense of direction.

Oct 7, 2019 | Rating: 4/10 | Full Review…

This premiere ticks all the boxes of a good intro episode with clear "Who"s, "What"s, and "Why"s laid out for even the most casual viewer while setting up some good long-arc momentum.

Unfortunately, a little dramatic coaching might have been helpful as well, because she delivers every line with the same monotonous flatness. Moody is one thing, but numb isn't a particularly engaging vibe.

A great set-up for what's to come as we watch Kate Kane's (Ruby Rose) journey unfold.

It sure takes a while to drop the conventions... and to go truly "Dark Knight."

    Poor acting and what happen to having a believable origin story!

    absolute trash.........

    what the hell were they thinking

    A show that clearly knows nothing about Batman and is just using it to push a narrative. Putting agenda before the story will always end up in failure and one begins to wonder if creators care.

    This is BAD in so many ways. Acting, story and overall tone is not good, not good at all. A star for creating Alice and the wondergang and for Gotham role in this mess. I'm kinda regretting wasting my time with this, but I heard it wasn't as bad as the trailers...wasn't it?rewatch season one of Gotham instead, my advice at least.

    hard to watch. very cringy.

    Don't bother, unless you're the most die hard fan and must see every iteration of comic characters no matter how bad.

    Along the lines of the arrowverse this bat women comes along when the city needs a hero most. Interesting beginning. Waiting for the story development. Hopefully they go as dark as arrow did.
