OK so I actually really like the show, but a few episodes were not what they should or could be. The acting is good and bad also it seems like the writers are having a hard time with what to do with a few characters and their stories. I am not getting into which characters they are if you watch the show you will find out. That was enough pros and cons. It is still a good show after all and I recommend it to some not all as I found out the hard way

Just wanted to like it. To many things and characters coming from all directions. It's like Smallville but not as thought out. What's happening next will the Joker Goto The Same School ? When the Riddler, preteen Catwoman, and see penguin all jammed in. Just so many people and I tried to enjoy this. What a let down. Just like Ben Affleck being batman. The animation series was more intense. Have Bruce Tim , Paul Dini, or Frank Miller write the script before this is ruined.

I swear this show does everything in its power to annoy me. Edward Ngma reminding us every five minutes that he's The Riddler, killing off The Joker (just to bring him back recently with the cop out come back to life trope), inconsistencies with the lore of most of the characters. Hair pulling stuff if you're a Batman fan.
