I don't buy Kate and Beth as twins. Just... no.

That said, I like how Kate was just all "I think Alice is Beth" at breakfast. Don't drag things out there, show.

I also don't buy them as twins at all. I wonder if the show is going to stick tightly to the Alice storyline or if we'll get to see Kate fight some other weird folks too. I'm enjoying all the Chicago shots, it makes me feel like this could be set after the Nolan movies; then it flips back to everyone-is-emotionally-tied-up-with-everyone family drama, and nope, Arrowverse for sure.

I don't know, I don't hate it like I hate Titans, but I'm also planning on hate-watching the entire season of Titans whereas I'm not sure if I'm gonna stick with this much further than a couple more episodes.

I dunno if I'd stick with it or not otherwise yet, but I feel like the way they set up the Arrowverse shows, you need to keep up with all of them, at least for the crossovers.

I'm in for at least a few more episodes. Ruby Rose looks like a living anime character. Mary is still my favorite character. The organization the Kanes have built has a logo that is suspiciously familiar; shall we call them the Representatives of G.U.A.R.D.? (Group Undertaking Anti-terrorism and Restorative Directions?)

Glad that they cleared up who Luke Fox is; that was weighing on my mind.

It held my attention so I'll keep watching. I couldn't get into the whole Arrow or Titans thing but Gotham from this period of time is my fav. Also just having like 2 women kiss on tv is still novel to my came out in the 90s queer self. She's a little wooden in the acting and doesn't quite sell the punching but she's no more wooden than the other thousand men who have played a superhero.

It's been awhile but was this the Batwoman in the comics that was mute and scarred. Or am I misremembering?

I think you mean Batgirl, AKA Cassandra Caine.

Personally, I liked the first couple episodes, though that may be the whiskey talking. A lot more seemed to happen in the pilot than in Green Arrow's, and the relationships seem a bit more interesting.

Yes. Batgirl. Getting them mixed up due to the same first letter thing. Thanks.
