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.

Oct 4, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
Top Critic

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

Dec 12, 2019 | Full Review…

Batwoman hits all the notes it needs for a first adventure.

Nov 18, 2019 | Full Review…

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.

Nov 7, 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…

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…

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

Oct 17, 2019 | Full Review…

Batwoman's pilot features plenty of detective skills, complicated relationships..., and a hell of a lot of mentions of Bruce Wayne. It's not perfect. But it is a great set-up for what's to come as we watch Kate Kane's (Ruby Rose) journey unfold.

Oct 7, 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…

Fun series delivers precise superhero punch, some violence.

    Poor acting, boring, annoying side characters and cliche first villain. But apart from that ...

    Nope. Just Nope. A lame attempt.

    The show was horrible. Ruby Rose can not act. Her character is unlikable and quite honestly so cliche. The acting all around is bad. Overacting to the next level.

    It's clear the show is still finding its feet but what I've seen so far has been intriguing for sure, with some of the most interesting villains the arrowverse has seen in a while. It strikes a nice middle ground between the arrowverse and Gotham which makes me optimistic for the future of the franchise, especially post Oliver queen

    Huge Batman fan and this abomination is horrendous. I wince with each new episode at horrible acting, the stupid plots and the forced message. It has become unwatchable. Every rendition of Batman including the 60's TV series outclasses this show. It's that bad. If it isn't already, it will be canceled.

    Oh man, this show was rough. I really wanted to like it and couldn't make it past two episodes.

    This show is horrible. I can't believe the people at DC comics let this go through. Horrible script. Horrible acting. Horrible cg. I'ts just horrible. They've destroyed the character of batwoman and are actively trying to destroy the rest of the dc characters. Crisis on infinite earth's wont save this show

    Definitely the worst arrowverse show. With a terrible plot and unlikable characters, there isn't much to redeem this appalling show

    I feel that many are overreacting to the show in general. While the push for them to establish women superiority comes off a bit too strong....I still enjoyed it with an open mind. Yes it needs a bit better writing but if given time the show and characters will grow into their own. Definitely a different kind of show.

    if i could i would give this 0 stars
