Kate Kane, armed with a passion for social justice and a flair for speaking her mind, soars onto the streets of Gotham as Batwoman, an out lesbian and highly trained street fighter primed to snuff out the failing city's criminal resurgence. But don't call her a hero yet. In a city desperate for a savior, Kate must overcome her own demons before embracing the call to be Gotham's symbol of hope
It would be nice to see entertainment used to do just that, entertain. Regrettably, in the last few years, it seems much of what we see is about indoctrination. Batwoman is yet another case in question. For me it has a political message about feminism and lesbianism that's been so overcooked its like great great granddad's beef jerky from the Civil War. Worse still, with the need to push a message the one thing it forgot to do was be engaging, interesting and simply put, enjoyable. It has action scenes which are competently done but little else here resonates. In summary, I found this one tired, boring, lecturing, trite. Wont be watching!!!! 3/10.
It was a rather decent show, with Elseworlds providing a backdoor pilot for it. Unfortunately, it is rather sad to hear that Ruby Rose left the show. I suppose there were secret hints throughout the last few episodes suggesting Rose's departure. And to be honest, the final episode of season 1 felt anti-climatic, in comparison to the other DC shows. Such a shame. Batwoman was the first gay superhero courtesy of the CW. The action, the cast, the plot twists, they were brilliant. I wonder how season 2 will look?
