News & Interviews for Batwoman: Season 1
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.
Batwoman's second episode doesn't do much to fix the issues that emerged in the pilot, but its willingness to throw caution to the wind with plot feels in line with the other Arrowverse shows. I'm still not hooked, but I'll stick around for more.
Maybe when things improve a bit, or we get used to a new normal, it will be possible to care about the fact that Batwoman's plot is ridiculously slight, that her character is woefully underdeveloped and overtly presented as the real Batman's stand-in.
Overall, the show isn't too bad and has a similar look and feel of many of the other shows in the Arrowverse so it's not a complete departure of the tried and true.
Batwoman is more a patchwork of influences than a series with its own identity, but a late twist suggests it might yet find its feet.
It's a unique offering that has so much more to say than its trailers suggested and, with a little room to grow, all that potential could carry it to greatness.
It's not as good as like Arrow and Flash pilots, but it's a solid pilot. It's not bad, I wouldn't even say it's average, I'd say it's fairly solid.
In the long run, I'm concerned Batwoman won't have enough unique elements to make for compelling TV week in and week out, but this was a decent start.
Batwoman desperately needs to figure out the Kane family dynamic, which drowns out practically everything else the show tries to do.
The action scenes were suitably pacy, though hardly revolutionary, while Dougray Scott does a persuasive line in fascistic authoritarianism. The jury's still out on Rose's Batwoman, but she looks capable of springing a few surprises.
Audience Reviews for Batwoman: Season 1
Feb 16, 2021Its not that the lead character has no sex appeal or screen presence or appeal at all. Its not that the acting and storylines were B rated hack jobs. Its not that the supporting cast was an ankle bracelet you barely notice. Its not that the fighting sequences were painful to watch. I could not get past episode 1 for one simple, show breaking reason. The bat suit is hideous. If I cant stand to see you, I wont listen to you nor give you my time.
Jan 25, 2021The first season was not good but compared to season 2 it's a masterpiece what a load of crap
Sep 27, 2020I tried to return the DVD to jb-hifi it was so bad. Jb are great guys, they asked whether there was something wrong with the DVD. Yes, I said, my kids said this was absolute rubbish and lost interest after 15 minutes and started chasing the cat around the house they were so bored. Unfortunately they could not refund me, so the kids used the DVD's as frisbees. Much more fun.
Sep 25, 2020As a very liberal person, it's sad to see people commenting on negative reviews as homophobic and concerted attacks. Do you really think the low ratings and ALL of those reviews were illegitimate? The fact is the show sucks. I couldn't care less about anyone's sexuality, I love superhero entertainment, unfortunately steely this show was only half that. Superhero yes, entertainment, no. It was boring and slow.
Sep 25, 2020Worst thing I've ever seen and not just on TV.
Sep 14, 2020Not a Half-star show, but pretty darn bad:/ got through the first four before I couldn't handlar the cringeworthy dialogue and lackning choreography anymore:( Not Bat-verse worth in any way:(
Sep 06, 2020this tv series is not really my thing. to me is trash
Aug 27, 2020Well what can I say, Ruby Rose is absolutely shockingly bad. I'm surprised she got the role. However she isn't the only bad thing about this show, it's just bad story telling and terrible cheese. The villains are awful to say the least this show dosnt bring a feel of what Gotham city should be. I'm not sure I can find a positive from this show other than the news Ruby Rose left after one season.
Aug 26, 2020Mediocre in almost every aspect.
Aug 17, 2020Overall I liked it, though it wasn't as good as arrow or flash. Batwoman herself was the best part about the show. It was disappointing that there weren't more batman villains, but alice and mouse were enjoyable, keeping the show from becoming dull. The dad did nothing for me though, they needed a better actor. I hope season 2 will continue to improve, though I am worried how it can keep going without kate kane, as the whole show revolved around her. Hopefully she can return, if only now and again.
