Topic: Batwoman

https://next-episode.net/batwoman

So Bruce Wayne/Batman has retired and left Gotham City. A private security organisation called the Crows has stepped in to fill the space left behind. Kate Kane, Wayne's cousin returns from traveling around the world after learning how to be a bad-ass ninja. At the same time Alice makes her debut disrupting the event  that would allow Gotham to move on from dependence on Batman. Some police are killed. Kate Kane visits Wayne Towers to use its legendary surveillance system to investigate the matter and stumbles on the Bat Cave and learns that Wayne was Batman.....That's not  all she finds out as discoveries lead to family rifts and disasters

It seems there isn't (and I have zero interest in the show) but you are invited to spend a few minutes turning your first post into a show introduction. smile (Take a look at the first post of other shows' recent threads.)

comparable to Arrow - so it is utter shait, like Arrow.

Re: Batwoman

Checked out the pilot some time ago and dident like it nor the lead character, so i only watch the cross over episodes. I only still watch The Flash and Legends and dropped Arrow and Supergirl a long time ago.

Re: Batwoman

Yeah I found it shallow and stupid, hated the lead as well.

Re: Batwoman

I still watch the entire CWDC lineup when I get the chance. Although they do tend to get pushed further and further down my queue. I'm currently a couple of seasons behind Arrow, The Flash, DC Legends, and Supergirl. Are they in the upper echelon of scripted television series entertainment? Hell to the no! Do I enjoy watching them? For the most part, yes. My thoughts on Batwoman... Meh, I wasn't impressed. hmm

But I loved the main antagonist because Rachel Alice Marie Skarsten is a treasure and made it work.

yes and there's the dilemma? Whats going to happen to Alice? She is the real star of the show? Things dont look good for her?

Re: Batwoman

I've wondered for quite some time why there wasn't a thread for this show. I assumed (and ratings suggest) that it's just not well received and not worth the time. I managed to get through 4 episodes, but never really enjoyed it and would only start a thread to criticize it.
I imagine the LGBTQ sect are thrilled with this show and heavily support it. I think it comes across awkward much of the time and misses the mark most of the time. There's just too much better quality out right now for me to take time for Batwoman. It's at or near the bottom of my To Watch list now. A shame really, cuz I had hopes for this one...

Re: Batwoman

since  there are so many people here who rate the the show so low maybe they would like to  state their standard, which  shows are at the top of their list?

See
The Expanse
FTWD
The Morning Show
For All Mankind
Treadstone
Shameless
Britannia
Lost in Space
Deputy
Rookie
Unbelievable
Limetown

That's a fair question you pose, and this list is just a few more recently aired shows. There is another thread in General Discussions where I ask how many shows people are currently watching. Many of the quality Series are listed in that thread as well....

Re: Batwoman

well in Lighton's list I have the blu ray of A Discovery of Witches. And I have yet to view the Killing Eve, the rest of his list don't appeal when I look at the summary of them

In kurschnextepisode's list I know The expanse  and Lost in Space, the latter has picked up this second season, the first season was  dull,  so maybe Batwoman might if given chance. Britannia I think has gone too weird for me and too New Age - I really couldn't care less about the made up ( i assume) belief systems described - I gave up after the first 4 eps.

Why does " it comes across awkward much of the time and misses the mark most of the time".?

Do yourself a favor and at least watch the trailers for every show I listed in that post. cool

When I read the Batwoman summary I was not sure... after watching the trailer I was sure. wink

Whatshername, the lead actress, is weak, imho. Any scenes with her feel a bit awkward and often miss the mark. The acting overall is mediocre as well as the storyline and writing. Action sequences are only fair to partly cloudy.
In general, the personality of this Batwoman doesn't appeal to me personally.

If you enjoy it, that's great and it's good there's variety for everyone. I did complete most of the Defenders series btw, ie Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Daredevil, The Punisher, and Iron Fist.

Here's a link to that other thread I referenced : https://forum.next-episode.net/viewtopic.php?id=9857
That probably includes, The 100, Taboo, Animal Kingdom, Snowfall, The Last Kingdom, etc...
To be fair, I'll probably finish Batwoman at some point, but it may be a while. big_smile

Re: Batwoman

Ruby Rose? well I had another look at eps 1 and dont understand why you feel her performance is some how weak and awkward. Yes she is a bit butch ( and heavily tattooed) and if you are a guy you wont be dating her any time soon. seemed one of the better DC universe shows with less of the suspension of belief the others require all the time
