They have double listed this as both Batwoman and Batwoman: Season 1 for some reason. The show is pure mediocrity with poor writing, directing, acting, and plot. The misandry is palpable, but seems to be in-line with Supergirl and what theyThey have double listed this as both Batwoman and Batwoman: Season 1 for some reason.

Note: the majority of reviewers reflect their personal shortcomings and weaknesses over the show and there is nothing to do with it. The objective reality is that...

It's just plain boring. There is nothing wrong with the actor or character

It's just plain boring. There is nothing wrong with the actor or character choices explicitly. The narrative is just not exciting and doesn't offer anything above other CW shows. It's the same formula, same drama, same everything just with darker lighting on the scenes. The creators clearly didn't have a unique vision of the show, but were "What if we do the same, with the only bat person we can have at the time?" The result is a resounding ... meh.

Nowhere near the abomination other reviewers suggest, mostly because of perceived "wokeness," but still only average at it's best.

Also, slight note: Kate Kane's Batwoman was always gay, Batgirl is the straight one.

Having watched only the two first episodes all I can say is that it is less loaded with gender politics than the trailers showed.

However, the show alters the origin story of the main character to justify her antagonistic stance towards Batman. There is no good reason why Batwoman needs to antagonize Batman in order to be her own character, and the original runs of Batwoman in Detective Comics prove it. But then again, you don't need to despise men in order to be a smart, independent woman, which the current progressive thinking seems to ignore. The writing is ok by CW standards, meaning you will need to disconnect your logic and / or common sense to enjoy the show. The acting is all over the place depending on the character. The kids are terrible. Ruby Rose is not bad at all, but some of her lines are simply ridiculous, and I don't think she has the experience to compensate that with a masterful delivery or the power to demand a change to the script. If you are not a fundamentalist from any of the ideological factions making this show their private battlefield, I would recommend watching a couple more episodes. If it becomes heavy-handed with the identity politics, cut your loses and watch something else. Or, if you are interested in the original character, read Detective Comics issues 854 to 863. My understanding is that they are sold together as a graphic novel for 25 bucks, so you don't have to break the bank. And they are good. Expand

No better or worse than the rest of the CW Superhero shows. Ruby Rose is excellent but the rest of the cast is just going through the motions. The scripts for the first 3 eps were all pretty week and the direction is consistently flat. ThisNo better or worse than the rest of the CW Superhero shows. Ruby Rose is excellent but the rest of the cast is just going through the motions. The scripts for the first 3 eps were all pretty week and the direction is consistently flat. This should've been been produced with adult content for the DC streaming service as it REQUIRES most graphic scenes to bring it to life. Expand
