Batwoman Series Review

Dion Bullock, Staff Reporter

Barbara Gordon does not get enough respect.

And television has missed a HUGE opportunity to use Bat-Girl instead of the new incarnation focused on Batwoman.

Batwoman is an American superhero television series developed by Caroline Dries and Greg Berlanti. It’s based on the DC Comics character Batwoman, a costumed crime-fighter created by Geoff Johns, Grant Morrison, Greg Rucka, Mark Waid, and Keith Giffen. The series premiered on The CW on October 6, 2019 and is primarily filmed in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Batwoman follows Kate Kane (played by Ruby Rose) overcoming her demons and past to become Gotham City’s new symbol of hope as the vigilante Batwoman.

Batwoman’s first appearance was in “Elseworlds,” the CW Arrowverse series’ 2018 crossover. In January of 2019, the series received a pilot order from the CW, to be considered for a series order in the 2019–20 television season. From fans and critics alike, Batwoman has its share of various mixed reviews. On Rotten Tomatoes, the critical consensus reads, “Though it needs more time to develop its own identity to truly soar, Batwoman‘s fun and stylish first season is a step in the right direction for representation and superhero shows alike.”
