Producer Greg Berlanti is to comic book superheroes what Donald Trump is to tweeting. They just can't stop themselves.

The best part of the new series is that unfussy, effortless way of getting Kate's sexual orientation out of the way, and also Kate herself.

Batwoman is more a patchwork of influences than a series with its own identity, but a late twist suggests it might yet find its feet.

It's a unique offering that has so much more to say than its trailers suggested and, with a little room to grow, all that potential could carry it to greatness.

It's not as good as like Arrow and Flash pilots, but it's a solid pilot. It's not bad, I wouldn't even say it's average, I'd say it's fairly solid.

In the long run, I'm concerned Batwoman won't have enough unique elements to make for compelling TV week in and week out, but this was a decent start.
