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'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.

Batwoman desperately needs to figure out the Kane family dynamic, which drowns out practically everything else the show tries to do.

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.

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.

It will take a few more episodes for Batwoman to truly take flight - and she's yet to find the definitive look promised in the promo shots - but for now she's just fine to hang out with.

Batwoman is a show with an immersive setting and a main character that has the potential to be a great addition to the Arrowverse, but this premiere fails to garner any excitement for its freshman season.
December 12, 2019
It's a textureless, bland, hollow performance that mutes the character's potential to evolve into something more intriguing.
November 18, 2019
Batwoman hits all the notes it needs for a first adventure.
November 7, 2019
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.
October 29, 2019
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.

Fun series delivers precise superhero punch, some violence.

What can be as satisfying as a superhero in step with the times?
October 8, 2019
The whole show is very, very interested in being diverse, and it's so obvious it's cringe-worthy.
October 8, 2019
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.
October 8, 2019
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.
October 8, 2019
With Arrow fast approaching its end, Batwoman can easily pick up its grimdark mantle within the Arrowverse and run with it.
