Batwoman: Season 1 Reviews

May 11, 2020
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.

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

Producer Greg Berlanti is to comic book superheroes what Donald Trump is to tweeting. They just can't stop themselves.

It's easy enough to watch that I'll stick around to see if it blossoms into something more.

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.

The series dutifully follows the template of its DC-CW brethren, but with its drama limited by its taciturn protagonist and an initially uninspired supporting cast.

Batwoman is sharp and fun, full of mythology and unexpectedly easy to explore.
October 3, 2019
Sufficiently well executed, with touches of quiet wit, but tinny and lacking in personality or excitement overall. It's a superheroics delivery system, most notable for its efficiency.

Rather than just give viewers this origin material in an efficient, don't-change-the-channel style, "Batwoman" metes it out with deliberate vagueness, more frustrating than foreshadowing.

The facts of who Kate is immediately make her Batwoman origin story different and intriguing. Rose, a once controversial choice for the role, does her best to reveal the flickers of pain underneath Kate's steadfast stoicism.
