I think this discussion has run its course.
Maybe I'm being a male chauvinist pig but Ruby Rose's really long neck weirds me out a little.
I guess I can deal with the whole Alice in Wonderland motif but did Alice really need to write Kate a letter with a quill pen?
Thank goodness Sophie told Kate to move the hell on. I know that subplot isn't really going to go away but I'm in it for the superhero butt kickings not love life drama.
Is Kate riding her personal motorcycle when she's dressed as Batwoman? A license plate lookup should be an easy way to figure out Batwoman's alter ego if that's the case.
After seeing "Joker" last week, it's a little jarring to go from Gotham City looking like 1979 New York City back to this show, where Gotham City looks like 2019 Chicago (except for the parts that look like 2019 Vancouver). I know, I know, different versions of reality.
I think the show needs work. It's not great. I'll stick with it for a bit longer though.
Not me. It just isn’t grabbing me in any way.

I'm feeling that way also. It isn't horrible, but I'm just not loving any of the stories or characters.
I haven't watched ep2 yet. But the acting in ep1 was so, so bad. I mean like SO bad. I'll give it a few more just because, pilot. But... so bad.
I don't have a problem with the acting of any character other than Alice. Playing an insane person is hard enough. Playing an insane comic book influenced Alice in Wonderland with crappy dialog is really hard.
Coming from the MCU I'm unable to geek out over background stuff that might make this show more interesting to me. But I can enjoy the DCU style.
I'm always struck by how dark-but-not-deep DC characters are. But this time, less dark — must they continue to so obviously use daylight shots of Chicago? — and definitely less deep.
Not dark, not deep, but definitely dry. As in Kate's kisses. But alliteration aside, I'm not going there.
Playing it more like Harley Quinn.
Episode 2 had the same funky artifacts from them playing with what I have to assume are digital filters for the video, it's very off-putting.
re: batsuit design:
it does look like they address the red logo and wig within the next few episodes
I guess Kate and Beth are supposed to be fraternal twins because they don't look alike.
My guess is that it would have been to demanding and production extensive to have Ruby Rose play both Kate and Beth/Alice.
Or they're just following the comic, whose characters the actors pretty strongly resemble...
With Batman gone did all the villians just leave Gotham too? Also where did commissioner Gordon go? When Bruce left did he take the keys to the batmobile with him?

Your comment about Commissioner Gordon made me wonder---how is it that the GCPD abdicated police powers to the "Crows"?
maybe the mayor did that?
I'm going to stick with this show for a while but I'm beginning to lose hope. Alice is a terrible villain. Kate seems to think that being a crime fighter means letting a multiple murder off with a stern warning. How did millionaire d-bag even know that Bruce had a rail gun? Apparently, secret identities aren't so secret on this show. And it looks like we're going to get a heavy dose of CW relationship drama between Kate, Sophie, Kate's new girlfriend and Sophie's husband.
Does the female social media voice over sound like Rachel Maddow to anybody else?
and, i agree with most, if not all, of your critique of the show at this point - i'm not sure how long i will last if it doesn't improve.
The big hope I have for the show is that so far, it's been an extended origin story (both for Batwoman and for the Gotham they're showing). Once it settles into the show it wants to be, hopefully we can put all this behind us and just enjoy the show itself.
Which is kinda too bad...the introduction of BW in the big crossover was quite a good hook. They should have just gone from there, and filled in the backstory as backstory and not several episodes of main story.
