Watched the 1st 2 episodes...not impressed. The only thing I've liked so far are the cameos from obscure DC heroes and Villians...but I did have to Google them to see if characters like Prince Evilo were real.
Jokes seem forced and characters totally unlikeable. Not on part with Community or 30 Rock which it seems to be aping.

Knowing NBC's Track Record with DC shows they will cancel it within its first season. I saw the previews and it looked really stupid.

Every review I've read seems to like the cast but seem to find all the jokes as misses.

That's a bummer.

I really don't understand what would convince a studio executive to sign off on this.

I mean, they've got Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow, The Flash, Arrow, Gotham... and... this? But why?

Can't really fault them for taking chances. That's arguably more than Marvel is doing.

From that perspective, no, I can't fault them. But it still seems like a very odd choice.

It COULD be good. But the odds don't line up...

The premise and cast are solid...but the execution is so bad.

I plan the marathon the series as soon as I've got the first 5 or so episodes recorded onto the DVR, but from what everyone's been saying I'm not expecting much. Truly is a shame because under the right circumstances I could see this kind of show working really well as like a CW spin-off.

Kind of sad they did away with the Insurance angle, and went with the Batman stuff instead.

Then again, Bats is really the only tried and true DC property, so I guess I shouldn't be all that surprised.

I guess they just wanna tie it more to the DC universe by having a character whose is related.

I wonder if Bruce Wayne's cousin knows his secret?

Very much agreed.

Oh please he is completely oblivious. The wayne angle actually bothers me. Bruce has no family on the wayne side. He has Kathy Kane on his mothers side but no one on the Wayne side.

Not surprised I don't think anybody watched it

I caught a couple of episodes and thought it was cute.
Not surprised it got cut, but still a little disappointed for the cast.

Not disappointed to be giving DC less advertising revenue.

Good riddance to bad rubbish, as they say.

Can Gotham go next? I'm getting pretty tired of seeing all these ads everywhere about "Rise of the Villains" and such garbage.
