So...Batwoman...
« on: October 08, 2019, 03:35:53 PM »
On the one hand, I thought Alice's identity was obvious; but on the other, I figured they would draw out the reveal.

Dunno how I feel about the show, yet.
When you insult someone by calling them a "pig" or a "dog" you aren't maligning pigs and dogs everywhere.  The same is true of any term used as an insult.

Seemed like your standard CW opening. Not bad until they start going all Smallville (7.0? now). Really though the problem with doing a Batwoman series is that she doesn't have many villains and no good ones from the comics. Alice was the obvious choice but after that who knows.

I give it ... a solid C+ or B-? It was enjoyable for an origin story episode and I'm willing to give it the rest of the season before really judging it, but I like it more now then I I did Green Arrow at the end, so that's a plus.

I don't much recall what happened in the second episode, I just kept thinking Kate looks like a Peter Pan the whole time.

Not sure what you mean, but isn't Magpie pretty much Batwoman's Penguin?

No, Magpie's been a longtime Batman villain. I don't even recall her being in a Batwoman but then again I'm only caught up to 2017 and have a crap memory anyway.

Spoiler for Hidden:
What I meant was they had easter eggs that the Joker in that reality was Jack Napier - so original Keaton Batman movie. They later mentioned something about Mayor Cobblepot's regime meaning it wasn't the Batman Returns reality because he was discredited prior to the election. So it's a reality kind of like the Keaton movies but not exactly. But of course since it's still the CW they probably just threw in some references without giving them a second thought.

The more we get of Kate's stepsister, the more I dislike her.

And an I-have-a-little-bit-of-facial-scarring-so-the-world-treats-me-like-a-monster villain.  Joy.

Seems a lot like it's a DC "Amalgam" universe.

If only.  Then we might be watching DC-23 instead of Batwoman.
