I usually don't rate shows after only having watched one episode but this is one of the few times I feel compelled to do so. I thought this show was going to suck based upon the guest role that Batwoman had on Gotham last season, but I was wrong. It appears that Ruby Rose has grown into the role more so than she had in the Gotham arch. Another thing I liked about the show is that it was, for lack of a better word, "glossy". It was filmed in an almost movie-esque fashion (similar to tonight's opener of TWD) the quality was higher and although I'm not into film and have no idea what the change in filming is, it looked great. It's only a 3.5 now, but I can see this show improving as time goes on. The backstory was great and I liked the reveal at the end, it let's viewers know the focus of the next several episode and the story arc, which is the perfect superhero trope, in a good way.
As a woman, one thing I hate about female superheroes is when the women who are cast as the superhero are skinny rather than athletic or toned. Do you recall how buff Lena Hedley got when she portrayed Sarah Connors in the Terminator TV show before she was in Game of Thrones? Well, that's how I like to see strong female characters look when the strength required is physical. I can suspend my disbelief only so far to think that this skinny, frail framed woman can actually physically take down a normal sized woman let alone a man. Even the current Supergirl, while not very athletic is at least a normal healthy framed woman. That's a casting issue but I do see strength conveyed by Ruby Rose emotionally so I'm sure I'll get used to it eventually.
As for people who review this show with nonsense about LGBT being "pushed onto us and our kids" and calling LGBT "perverted", let me get one thing straight, I'm heterosexual and unlike that poster, I am not homophobic or ignorant. Here's the thing, if you don't like the show, don't watch it. And if you don't want your kids to watch it, don't let them... my God, the TV has an off switch and the ability to change channels and the ability to block content. But if you are ignorant then you wouldn't know that. All a parent needs to do is talk to their children but most parents don't talk to their kids about sex whether it is heterosexual sex or not. It sounds too simple to be true, but all you have to do is ensure your kids are watching AGE APPROPRIATE shows. I'm 45 and my parents didn't say a word to me about sex, and if they had, I'm certain that I would have not lost my virginity the way I had. So yeah, COMMUNICATION is what parents should be doing with their kids about ALL types of sex, and violence for that matter. Don't be ignorant like the other reviewer, change the channel if you don't like a show and RAISE your kids by openly communicating with them about subjects you feel are important. I can only hope that homophobic comments like that aren't passed down to children, comments like that need to end... people are people regardless of who they chose to have sex with.
