CW's Batwoman

I'll leave this here

https://youtu.be/vrIiPcv4_iY

I just hope they don't have a team Batwoman and she works alone - but you know that is not going to happen.

Think the red looks and in a fight its a bit of a hindrance/weakness.

Well, the pilot episode was spectacularly average, but they seem to be lifting the story from the excellent Greg Rucka/J.H. Williams comics run, so I'll give it a few more episodes.

Totally agree with all of that. Was a bit too rushed so they could get her into the costume before the end of the episode. Also their version of Alice was played too Joker-like. Was much more nuanced in the comic books.

I watched the pilot it was terrible, hold my stolen weapons. The whole premise is stupid letting someone break in and steal. The lead actor needs acting lessons so she has more than one expression and an original plot or even a good plot would be good. The viewing figures are the worse for a new CW superhero show. The rotton tomatoes ratings for critics its 72% for members its 8%. To show how low the figures there is a tv show call kids say the darndest things that got three times the ratings for this show

The Rotten Tomato user rating is due to an internet troll campaign that has been reported on US media websites. Totally embarrassing & another example of everything thatís wrong with social media. Sure, the show isnít great, but to go that far is pathetic...

sorry thats not true at all, everytime a bad film or tv show is crapped out they blame "internet troll campaign" see Ghostbusters (2016) Ocean 8 and ton more

Also the companies triple down on attacking any potential fans by saying its not for "white males" as said by ruby rose. Nothing to do how bad the actress is and how cringing the trailers were......?

Also you have so called professional critics shilling for the show

Arrow, Flash got more for their pilots and when Supergirl moved to the CW she got more viewers on its first episode of season 2

Batwoman 1.8 Million and people wanted to see how bad it was, lets see how well the second episode does.

The problem is when they mention The Last Jedi. No that really was that bad

From what I've seen of Gotham and Krypton and snippets of this, 8% is generous. These shows are a complete embarrassment on every level.

Never read anything on CBR before but the article is awful, someone is posting their view as fact. The majority of criticism against the show is nothing to do with the "series focused on a queer woman" utter BS. It had bad trailers and acting and its in the 1st episode. I already mentioned about everytime a bad film or tv show is crapped out they blame "internet troll campaign" see Ghostbusters (2016) Ocean 8 plus more.
I'm guessing the Krypton producers are kicking themself they didn't go down the Woke route.

All of this falls in line with the general trends surrounding female-led superhero films and TV shows: a portion of men appear either threatened or infuriated with these show's very existence.
More bull ****

the upcoming Black widow is not getting this "hate" or Alita Battle angel is kind of super hero and was well LIKED (apart from some dodgy CGI people like to bring up)

With Black Widow all they are trying to do is put a strong female on screen (although the ground work has pretty been done already) and have her kick ass and take names.

Simples

Batwoman should really do the same thing a strong female kicking ass taking names... but no she has to make SJW statements and put men down to build herself up. Neglecting the fact that RR looks as menacing as woody from toy story when humans are around.

Another article from a reputable UK website this time, highlighting the online Troll problems this show is facing...

And I suppose the astonishingly awful nature of these DC shows has no say at all in Batwoman's low rating? I mean, it couldn't possibly be that the honeymoon period for Superhero TV is over and viewers are finally being discerning enough to recognise complete dreck when they see it?

Why was Jessica Jones so unversally accepted and loved if so many toxic males are out there vote-bombing shows that feature feminist or LBGTQ themes on aggregation sites?

Jessica Jones show is a great point, you don't see a "troll" campaign against that. I really liked the first season of Insatiable on netflix, even before it was aired, these so called reputable websites where trying to get it cancelled. Screaming "fat shaming and homophobia" when its nothing like that at all.
Looking at the writers other articles, you can see his buzzfeed type articles "everything you need to know about blah blah"

Quote:
Season one of Insatiable might have basically been the most controversial Netflix event


Yeah there is a tiny minority of 4chan/8chan trolls that hate BW but EVERYONE gets lumped with them. Anytime you say you don't like a film or even a game, you called a troll, don't like last Jedi, you a troll, don't like ghostbusters 2016, "you a woman hating troll".

I can't take any of these articles serious, a lot of these sites posted about "white washing" in Dr strange film, idiots screamed racism but turns out it was Marvel bending over for china's box office

Agree with the Jessica Jones point.

There are plenty of other shows with strong female leads/casts that don't get slated too - Killing Eve, Big Little Lies, Handmaid's Tale, Orange Is The New Black.

Even if you're only talking sci-fi/comics, then you have Agent Carter, Orphan Black, and older stuff like Buffy, Alias, etc.

Plus the hate for stuff like Ghostbusters and Captain Marvel was pathetic abuse before they even came out at the cinema.

Not the same as slagging it off once it's been aired.
