Ugh, this was worse than the pilot. If they had not shown Pyg in the trailer for next week I would be done. Not sure I will tune in for that either.

The dialogue is atrocious and there is no way there is only one director. The damn show feels like it has multiple personalities.

Jada Pinkett Smith is so awful, I am physically cringing when she comes on screen.

Ugh.

Carol Kane and the dude playing Gordon were the only watchable parts tonight. Penguin would be okay, if it weren't so derivative.

Pyg and Dollmaker? Who said this wouldn't become a monster of the week type show? :lol:

Comes off like a poor mans Blacklist the way they try to blur the ethical lines....it's Birds of Prey level bad.

And Zsaz, too!

I think Birds of Prey was better. I watched three episodes of it before I gave up hope.

Can't wait for the inevitable Flash crossover featuring time displaced and powerless Barry Allen.

Nothing wrong with that. Judging from social media, it's pretty divisive.

Thought episode 2 was pretty good.

Hate Alfred though

I also hate having Selina threaten sexually abuse allegations

Haven't watched ep 2 yet, but man, that opening scene in episode 1 at the jail was so badly acted by every single actor involved that I nearly didn't make it any further.

And Alfred... yikes, talk about poor casting choice. He'd be a better choice for an extra in a Guy Ritchie film than as Batman's butler.

Certainly was a step down from the pilot (not that I was crazy about the pilot,but...)

I don't get how they can get a recurring role out of Ivy Pepper. (As the shell shocked victim of domestic/child abuse? :smt017 )

Also... are they going to do a thing where they kill (or beat up/scare off) ANY GUY CANDY every episode!?!

That waiter dude... Lazro or whatever his name was. He was hot... then gone.

FFS!!! :smt011 :smt011

I was afraid of this would happen.

We are only 2 episodes in...and the show already has comflicting tones in it. Is this suppose to be a real gritty show? Then why do we have campy scenes like the sudden scene of Bruce listening to DEATH METAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Which of course wasn't DEATH METAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Why do we have over the top acting with Cobberpot? Why do they give bad dialogue to bad actors that make it campy?

Also they have to stop with the fricken references of stuff that is going to happen in the future that won't actually happen in the show because by that time BATMAN shows up. I don't care about Joker references. Stop having 'monsters of the week' crap. Stop it! Stop it! STOP IT!"

They should of focus on Gordon fighting against the Crime Families and corruption in GCDP...But instead of an easter egg hunt show...or drinking game.
