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.

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.

Alice, and the complex relationship she has with Kate and Jacob, is the best part of Batwoman.

Oct 7, 2019 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

Batwoman still delivered a strong fourth episode - one that left room for plenty of great one liners, which are quickly becoming part of this show's branding.

Oct 30, 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…

Batwoman is ultimately painful to watch and a struggle to get through, lacking finesse, emotional depth, and a sense of direction.

Oct 7, 2019 | Rating: 4/10 | Full Review…

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

Oct 17, 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…

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…

Fun series delivers precise superhero punch, some violence.

    it was shit, that is all

    needs more work to develop the characters. I myself as a viewer feel detached from the characters. mind you im not a SJW

    Poor script and horrible casting kill any chance of this show overcoming its politically correct foreshadowing.

    To be honest, I can see why viewers have been so vicious about this. While I won't go so far as to call it complete garbage, the potential here was definitely wasted. Big time. For starters, and I may be alone in this statement, the show moves WAY too fast. I understand that there's only so much story that can be told on screen, but there's not nearly enough meat to the story to truly care about the characters. Then, there's the visuals, which really are quite bad (the flashback scenes were beyond annoying, to say the least) and a lot of the action has no energy whatsoever. Lastly, there's the acting. The only standout in the entire cast is Ruby Rose as Kate, who does have a captivating presence, but she definitely deserved much, much more than what the writers gave her. Maybe one day we'll see her on the big screen. Overall, it's not quite the disaster I expected, but it is a pretty big letdown.

    CW has long ago cemented themselves as the absolute worst when it comes to adapting comic book properties. In comparison with its predecessors, this show alienates a part of its audience, insults the fans of the comics and finally delivers a product that is a waste of time, talent and money.

    I love the arrowverse. This show however has no redeeming qualities. Even ruby roses potential is squandered as they have a weak supporting cast, an absolute eye roll of a villian, and a plot with any emotional resonance. Might be redeemable in the future, but i think they should just ditch it and start a red hood and the outlaws show with arsenal from the arrow. Would be a much better concept that stems from the batman mythos. But at this rate, anything is better than batwoman.

    The show needs to stop capitalizing on Batman so much. It's hard for me to take her seriosly when I'm constantly reminded of one of the greatest detectives of all time. She needs her time to shine and not have batman shoved down our throats!!!

    Terrible acting and really cheesy.
