  1. I get that Batwoman is a comic book show and that comic book physics should be expected, but, seriously, I’m pretty sure electricity doesn’t work like that. I’m reasonably sure the guy at the start would not have been electrocuted while he was on that chain link fence since the fence itself should be grounded via the posts holding it up.

    • I wish the superhero shows would tone down the comic-book science just a small amount. Physics-defying stunts? Sure. Impossible weapons? Okay. Science works however we feel like it works in any given episode? Not so much.

      • I am okay with subtle comic book physics, like Flash’s clothes burning off at first to necessitate his suit, but since then… eh, who cares.

        But when you are creating black holes somewhere on earth that is sucking everything in? None of the physics work like that!

  2. The Good Doctor was cute this week, but there were a lot of moments it felt like the characters were acting against type. Like Shawn needing to be asked a question when he typically avoid questions.

    • Bruce hasn’t felt a lot like Bruce, but that’s because he’s been a hallucination instead. That one felt odd because he somehow infiltrated everyone’s lives to get them to a dinner just to ask them to still be on a team? It was just weird.

  3. That Short Trip episode was too short. I feel like they are teasing us with all of these Pike and Number One episodes. They are done with season two, we shouldn’t be getting any more, so this is like your X-significant other visiting you, showing off their new sexy clothes and the impressive dance moves they learned to go with them.

    It’s not fair, just give us more!!!
