Let's face it...Batwoman has never been [or, will ever be] one of the most popular superheroes...simply because, she never really had a backstory. She was created for no reason other than to [potentially] make money [from the dreamy-girl and masturbatory, pimply boy markets]...well, that failed!
So, many years later...some idiotic TV execs decided to re-invent her as an out-and-proud, stereotypical lesbian...whatever they were thinking, they got it so wrong. Why? You may wonder...well, watch the first episode and it will all become abundantly clear.
The writing is diabolical, atrocious, infantile...obvious and downright predictable! The plot, wafer thin...literally littered with preachy, box-ticking, political correctness. The cringe-factor is only matched by the deafening audible groans...seriously, it has to be asked, did any of those [idiotic] TV execs read the script before they flicked the green-light switch? If they did...they are not fit for purpose [Greg Berlanti, seriously!?!]...if they didn't, [well, hell mend them] bet they wished they had now!
Remember the woeful and instantly forgettable Catwoman? Yip...22 episodes destined to go down that same unfortunate road. Cat, bat, doesn't matter, it's all just an insulting pile of [bat] tat.
Wonder if there will be a Season 2?!?
In the series, 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...
