Anyone else watching?

This show may (and I mean may be enough to get me off my anti-Gotham kick).

I like the characters, and very much enjoying the main villain (Alice).

Starring the character of Kate Kane (Bruce's cousin) years after his disappearance, taking up the mantle of Batwoman.

I like the slower going of the show- It is not a one-villain knock-off each episode. Instead it is focusing on character development and story arc.

Been avoiding it ... so far. I have been mostly disappointed with 'Batman Shows'. I may give it a look when I can't find something that interests me more <wink>

Mike, I generally loath the Batman shows- they never live up to what I was hoping for.

This one, so far, seems different.

Focusing on a Bat character without Bruce around, it really appeals to me.

I have been a bit leery of watching it. Rotten tomatoes score is dismal. NOw... I might give it a chance.


Jinkies!

I've watched the first 2 episodes. Will give it the first season to have enough to make a decision.

I agree with the points Gryphon made. At the moment I have 3 issues with the series but decided not to post spoilers. All three of the issues are more annoying than anything else. Two are Political Correctness related and one is a major difference in setting that I don't understand the need for.

Mina,

The RT is probably from the same group who went out of their way to try to tank the score of any movie or show not starring a straight white male.

It's finding it's feet as all the Arrowverse shows have done but seems to be hitting it's stride earlier. The timeline is slightly in the past of the Arrowverse crossover from last season to setup how and why Kate takes on the mask. Of the supporting characters I think the stepsister is the standout.

It started slightly in the past, but recent episodes are after the crossover (with an explicit reference to the "Arkham breakout").
