    The character has potential, but the CW is bad.

    Trash TV. Out for a quick buck, nothing to see here.

    not sure if it is because it was rushed

    but the show is poorly executed--at least episode one--hopefully it gets better--but I can see why fans are not liking it too much

    The reaction at the superherohype.com forums seems to be "better than expected but still has work to do". Some said better pilot than Arrow or Legends and I agree to a degree, especially with the latter.

    the main comments I am seeing is that the sort of combined Batman and the Arrow backstory into one--it lack originality in sionome aspects and that is the biggest complaint or observation that is being.

    I binged watch legends awhile ago and i think its pilot rocked

    My friends who part of the LGBQ+ community, while are happy about an openly gay character--they found RR performance too wooden

    I agree with with some people's opinion that she was better in the suit than out of it. Don't know why but it worked out better.

    I thought the pilot was mediocre. The fact that we were immediately jumping back in time to an origin that didn't appear to be told via flashbacks even though the character debuted fully formed in the last crossover was confusing. And the biggest impediment for me is Ruby Rose. She's just not good enough to pull this off. She just resorts to sort of sticking her chest out, standing up extra straight/tall, and mumbling her way through a wooden, monotone, deeper voice as a means of trying to sound like she's all tough and badass and whatever. And her American accent wavers hard at points. Most of the supporting cast were serviceable in a bland sort of way. Nothing terrible, but nothing really standout

    I liked Rachel Skarsten a lot. Though I have liked her in a lot of things she's been in, so it's not like this particular show made her for me. If she were just a bit younger, and the character wasn't off-limits for TV because of the DC movies, I think she could've been a good TV-level Harley Quinn (like if Arrow hadn't been forced to surgically remove all its Suicide Squad references after the movie began production).

    It's not enough to make me stop watching, but it kind of puts the show on the lower tier right now with the worse seasons of Arrow and the unfortunate way the Flash seems to be trending.

    I didn’t make it through Episode 2. Every character, aside from Kate Kane, is dull and uninteresting. Disappointed.

    Hmmm, episode 3 was probably the best. Still has some issues.

    Episode 7 was actually really good. Clearly the best episode of the series so far. Some good plot choices and surprises. Totally didn't see Julia Pennyworth playing Batwoman at the end.

    You know what, I've been trying to watch it, and its just so color less and meh. Maybe its because Ruby Rose is a outright terrible Actress who basically plays herself in everything that she's in. To be honest, Pennyworth was just a far more interesting Batman universe series, and far better acted.

    The show is just boring and the episodes are tough to get through. Still not sure what is the point. But i gotta stick with it through Crisis.

    Whoa, did not expect that ending to the episode. So Crisis separated Beth and Alice? But how does Alice know Kate is Batwoman then? "To quote Ezra Miller Flash: "What does this mean??"

    What a great episode! :amazed: Some really dark stuff and new layers to the story. Bravo to the writers for managing to make the villain more sympathetic while also having the heroine cross the line. I totally see Kate fearing now she might turn into future Bruce in Crisis. Wow. :clap:

    Damn, seems this show got Hush correct.

    Also, the reason for Batman/Bruce disappearing was that he killed Joker. :eek:

    It does a good job with "universe" building and the like but I'm not a fan of the character and definitely not a fan of Rose. The fact she's leaving is a plus.

    She's hard / scary looking. Not sure why the show's creators thought her look would appeal to a large audience.

    sort of came out of the blue, I know that on one of the comic geek vlogs it was suggested she was trying to get the shoot moved to LA and that she was not healed from the multiple injures she received on the show. If I find the video I will post it --it is about 2 months old

    Nope. The trailer was very misleading. Post-Crisis it's been the probablybest CW DC show. Much like with Jon Cryer as Lex Luthor on Supergirl, Rachel Skarsten Alive really carries the show. Storytelling has really improved along the season.


    I had kind of gotten used to Ruby Rose as Kate/Batwoman so this is kind of disappointing...

    Misleading article, Bruce Wayne did not appear on the episode but rather Hush using Bruce Wayne's face.
