I'm sorry, but damn this show was pretty stupid.

I hate how whenever there's a hit show, the network tries to create a duplicate which most times fails.

I was sort of happy this show failed even if the finale was better than the entire series combined.

Not only was the acting awful (Especially from Ashley Scott), and the setpieces terrible, but it was really vapid mainly because the writing was horrible but also because they never really gave us Batman, or Nightwing, had a really bad romance plot, and the villains were too damn one-dimensional.

Not to mention whenever we got to see exteriors of Gotham, they looked like computer mock ups for architectural designs.

I admit to seeing the entire run of the series, only because I was hoping for improvement, and mainly because Dina Meyer is my pimp.

Any mutual feelings? Any fans?

I liked it...It was a weak version of Buffy, but I still found it enjoyable and would have liked to see it grow...But I've said it before and I'll say it again...Dina Meyer is poison...The only "hit" she has under her belt is Saw but she was in it for less than 5 minutes...

I saw a few episodes and thought it was pretty much ass. I was amazed at how badly they managed to screw up the original concept, it's essentially a Charlies Angels lift but with superheroines, how do you screw that up?

I love the comic series, so i have a soft spot for the show. I never got to watch it when it was on, but a year or so back i picked up the set on dvd at a convention and i thought it was good for what it was. I wasn't exactly expecting a cure for cancer though.
