Oh, my goodness. Woof.

Nice (final) costume, though.

I couldn't even make it through the damn trailer.

It's, what, 23 episodes for the first season?

I'll go on record with some Batman predictions.
  • We get a namedrop for at least ONE Batgirl's alter-ego (be it Stephanie, Cassandra, Barbara, or Helena).
  • We get a namedrop for at least ONE Robin's alter-ego (be it Dick, Jason, or Tim).
  • League of Assassins doesn't show up (until later seasons).
  • We get some hint (or maybe even meet) Leslie Thompkins.
  • Jim Gordon or Alfred Pennyworth is dead. (Take your pick.)
  • ELEVEN fvcking Batman villains. They don't all have to be A-list, but I'm calling it now. Minimum of ELEVEN, somehow someway, showing up in the fvcking show.

It's like you've done this before.

Yeah, that dialog, man... oof. Is there an official term for when you cringe, eye-roll, and face-palm all at the same time?

I feel like calling it a "Kerfluffle" but I feel like it's already in-use elsewhere.

I call it the Alabama Tickle.

Yeah, not my first sh!tshow. It amazes me that the CW stays on the air.

I'll give this a shot but I expect it to get SJW'ed like Supergirl did. Also kind of hypocritical for kate to say she doesn't want a man taking credit for a woman's work, when she is using Batman's Cave Costume and Gadgets

Sundays are about to become about Strong Female Heroes. They won't let Men take credit for getting their own night.

How about making a good series first and propaganda later?
Oh, wait...too hard.

Who's the Alice villain? Gender-bent Mad Hatter or an OC made for the show?

My problem with this is that it's just plain unoriginal, and it's upsettingly pander-tastic.

We already had a much better story line with this in Batgirl who, on a librarian's salary, built her own crime fighting career.

Here, we have some lady who just swipes someone else's stuff then says "I'm not about to let a man take credit for a woman's work." Lady, you stole all his stuff.

Count me out.

I don't really have a issue with Batwoman wanting the credit when Earth-1 Batman's been gone for what, three years?

WB executives in a meeting.


The fact that they put this NEW series on a Sunday night, buried next to supergirl shows all you need to know about it.

You're whining about that now? When we're 7 seasons of Arrow and 5 seasons of Flash into this universe

Logic and plot hilarious

And yet, whenever Dick, or Helena, or Tim, or anybody else take over the cowl in an absence, they never try to take the credit for themselves.

Well, except for Jean-Paul. But fvck that guy.

Wasn't there a whole plot line about Batman training dick so he WOULDN'T turn out like him?

Dick never became Batman 2, he created a whole new persona for himself in the form of nightwing to get away from the batman mantle.

After Batman died in Final Crisis or whichever crisis it was, Dick took over the mantle. And there was Battle for the Cowl, where he and Jason fought for the Bat mantle.

sounds kind of goofy

my frame of reference is the animation universe... which usually tends to remain a little more grounded
