Critic Reviews 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.

Oct 4, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
Top Critic

It's a textureless, bland, hollow performance that mutes the character's potential to evolve into something more intriguing.

Dec 12, 2019 | Full Review…

Batwoman hits all the notes it needs for a first adventure.

Nov 18, 2019 | Full Review…

Rose cuts a striking figure, but she's unfortunately on the wooden side when it comes to acting. The show feels heavy, too, a common trait of anything occurring in the glum Batman universe.

Nov 7, 2019 | Full Review…

Ruby Rose, the centre of so much controversy when she was cast to play Batwoman/Kate Kane, is more than up to the job, exuding a fragile confidence that befits the dual role.

Oct 29, 2019 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

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

Oct 8, 2019 | Full Review…

What can be as satisfying as a superhero in step with the times?

Oct 17, 2019 | Full Review…

Batwoman's pilot features plenty of detective skills, complicated relationships..., and a hell of a lot of mentions of Bruce Wayne. It's not perfect. But it is a great set-up for what's to come as we watch Kate Kane's (Ruby Rose) journey unfold.

Oct 7, 2019 | Full Review…

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.

Oct 8, 2019 | Full Review…

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.

Oct 8, 2019 | Full Review…

Fun series delivers precise superhero punch, some violence.

Audience Reviews for Batwoman: Season 1

    I'm going to try and watch this a 2nd time, maybe it will get better.

    It speaks for its self.

    This is a great addition to the CW's superhero collection. It is fresh, new, different, yet familiar in the CW way. It has all of the Gotham seediness that a 'Bat' show needs yet I can see it blending in seamlessly with the Flash and all the rest (not yet seen the crossover episode. Waiting to watch them all at once). I see it as a worthy successor to Arrow.

    It has nothing to do with the script or her sexual orientation, it's just that Ruby is not a believable Batwoman. Someone like Gina Carano or Ronda Rousey would have been a better fit. If Ruby wants to be believable she is going to have bulk up and put some muscle on.

    This show is unwatchable. Horrible acting, terrible script
  • 5d ago
    Same old stories, pretty much pedictable, not very believable and the wig is aweful.
  • 5d ago
    I watched only one episode, and that was enough. The hero is handed everything on the plate, she does nothing to earn the suit, and the name. She basically steals it from Bruce. And revealing the twist that should be revealed at the end of the season was just insulting and took away all the tension (not that there was any...).
  • 6d ago
    Bad acting, bad script.

    I can't believe someone got paid to write this

    One star for making me laugh due to how bad it is.
