    It's really a comedy/sitcom style show, so if you like that kind of show (and don't mind seeing the Bat Universe acting out of character ridiculous at times) then it's for you.

    Most realistic portrayal of Damien ever. :P

    (That's exactly how I pictured him in real life...minus the lethal fighting skills)

    He definitely sounded the most age appropriate of Damian's depictions, but he is seemingly nowhere near as competent as he is in the comics (even though they mention he was raised by assassins).

    I love this series, but the last episode with Gordon and Clayface's hand was just too much. Is that supposed to be funny?

    I think that was the intention. Humor is subjective. I got a kick out of it, the absurdity of a hand taking on a child like persona and become best friends with Gordon.

    If you say so, this episode was a complete U-turn for me personally compared to the previous episodes. Those episodes did align with my humor.

    I loved the last episode. How can Gordon not be unhinged and lonely with all the crap he has to put up with? He needed a friend no matter what form it took. It made him very sympathetic

    With what Gordon and his wife are like, I have to wonder what this show's take on Batgirl is going to be like.

    Crossing my fingers she ain't Batgirl. The show's dark humor would work better with a crippled Barbara.

    Queen of Fables reminded me of Todd from the Office. You have a protagonist who does some messed up stuff, so you introduce a supposedly worse character who really just does the same stuff the Michael and his crew do, only they act really shocked when Todd does basically the same stuff. I like this show and the office but I never liked that trope. It seem like a very manipulative and disengenuous way to make the protagonist seem more sympathetic that they are. Pretty sure Harley, Psycho, King Shark and the plant guy in the apartment killed their share of innocents. And like, that’s fine, they’re villains. But why is the Queen of Fables so much worse than them?

    Yeah, I don't like it when they try to pretend Harley ISN'T a real bad guy. I mean, from the show so far it looks to me like she's killed plenty of people. And doesn't Joker constantly kill innocent people? So her "i don't kill innocent people" thing seems like bullshit. That's what villains do.

    And one of the reasons I was liking the show is because it didn't seem to me like it was pretending that Harley isn't a real villain (she IS and I hate it when people try to turn her into some kind of antihero or something). She can't be the Joker's girlfriend and not also be a murderer.

    She reminds me of mafia types, who think of themselves as good guys because they only kill people who are either "in the life" or who "know the score". Which is to say other mobsters, people who borrow from loansharks and don't pay up, and people who are generally at least tangentially part of mafia corruption. It's a load of B.S. of course, since the people who are more tangentially part of mafia corruption have often been intimidated into being so. And while they may try to just hold up security guards rather than killing them, it's not like they won't kill them if things go south.

    That said, I can see why she would consider herself morally superior to blatant serial-killers. She'd be wrong, but I do understand the mindset.

    Batgirl is in the show. She's going to be voiced by Kaley Cuoco's sister Briana.

    I don't doubt that's why when the show starts, she's helping Joker rip off criminals, rather than taking part in one of Joker's "mass murder for shits and giggles" kind of plans.
