I've mentioned my feeling that Ms Pinkett Smith drags the show down somewhat. And I'm not really into her current storyline. She would probably better serve the narrative if she was never heard from again, but they're not going to dump a big name until she's ready to go.
I'm also not a fan of the current relationship Gordon has found himself in. Especially considering the relationship the other character has with Bruce (in standard continuity, if there is such a thing at DC these days).
As for the Red Hood, it depends on how they're treating it. The Red Hood Gang was supposedly a thing before the events of The Killing Joke, but since the "New 52", its place in the canon is less clear. If they want to use The Killing Joke, then it's probably a bad idea to introduce it now, and certainly a mistake to go any further down that route until Bruce puts on the dark grey onesie. (Which presumably will be at the end of the series, unless they wind up like Smallville and run way past the original projected endpoint.)
Ah, i didn't know Pinkett Smith was a name, I have no idea what she's like when she's not being Fish Mooney but I find the character annoying, I'd be happy for her to get a one way trip to the bottom of Gotham harbour.
I don't mind the red hood gang being in it, like many though it doesn't seem right to have a Killing Joke type story without Batman, it misses the point of the relationship between the characters as a concept.
Found this series to be thoroughly enjoyable, not to mention a whole lot better than all that "reality" nonsense they keep showing! I don't care if people can sing, cook, lose weight, renovate, survive in a jungle (either as a contestant or a "celebrity") or whatever the latest nonsense is!
What a coincidence, I just watched his first Scarecrow Batman episode the other day. It was also the first since they'd redesigned the character and hearing Combs' distinctive tones emerging from the newly cadaverous villain gave it a frisson, especially as he's an expert at mad scientists.
Judging by tonight's episode they've completely lost interest in Bruce Wayne. Also, the Electrocutioner (groan) kind of spoils any plans for Maxie Zeus or The Mad Hatter they might have. Plus they killed off the best looking actress in the show tonight. And how many times is The Penguin going to be beaten up?!
But with all those reservations, it's still the Batman universe and I'm happy to watch it. Nice to see Morena Baccarin has joined the cast, though it does beg the question, why will Gordon name his daughter after his lesbian ex-lover?
Oh, and Agnes DiPesto got killed too! Where was Herbert Viola when she needed him?
I'm not happy with Gordon and Leslie Thompkins having a thing, given each of their relationships to Bruce Wayne (in the DC canon, not necessarily here, I'll admit). Leslie was a former colleague of Thomas Wayne, and essentially became Batman's medical service (when Alfred couldn't just patch him up). She's sort of a fill-in maternal figure, or at least an aunt. Bruce's relationship with Gordon is a bit more complicated, and can be seen as either a paternal figure, or his best friend, or any number of other things.
Anyway, I just find it a bit creepy.
As for Barbara (Sr), she seems to have taken to Selina and Ivy hanging out in her penthouse pretty casually. And whether Jim names his daughter after her...well, in some versions she's actually his niece whom he adopts when her parents are killed (as are everyone's parents in Batman). Or did they just have a messy divorce? Who can remember? Anyway, shouldn't she be born soon? Dick seems to be right on track, since we saw his parents get together the other week. He's a couple of years younger than Barbara (Jr), and the age difference would be about right.
I mean, unless Barbara (Sr) is pregnant. In which case she probably shouldn't be drinking quite so much. But it would be a killer of a cliff hanger for the season finale...
