Despite some familiar tropes, Batwoman's pilot establishes a distinct entry into the Arrowverse lineage, and sets the stage for a promising and emotional series.
If you love origin stories, then you're probably going to love the series premiere of Batwoman. It is filled with origin story calling cards.
Like so many other network offerings this season, the pilot isn't the strongest start to a series, but there's room for potential.
As far as pilots go, this was a pretty solid start for Batwoman, a little bit Batman, a little bit Arrow, but with an overarching narrative that feels somehow inherently female.
The episode established a whole new take on Gotham City.
A pretty solid introduction.
Ruby Rose is magnetic in the title role as Kate Kane/Batwoman, the supporting cast is strong, and you truly cannot do better for a setting than Gotham City. It's iconic.
CW's superhero shows have historically risen and fallen on the strength of their ensembles, and the main players here are refreshing and somewhat surprising.
While Batwoman shines a welcome spotlight on one of the Arrowverse's more recent superhero additions, the series cycles through too many familiar tropes in its first episode.
The pilot episode of Batwoman set fans up for a dark and emotional series... There were a few awkward moments or lulls that can be expected from a series still trying to find its footing. But for a first episode, this one was promising.
Ruby Rose looks poised to give us raw action and sex appeal and possibly some cheesy drama to boot.
Batwoman is a stylish entry into the Arrowverse, one that is worthy of both the Bat family and the impressive DC TV lineage.
