People have a difficulty adapting with something new, that's the only reason why I can see any negative reviews for this show.
Beware the batman has made waves among fans mainly because of its design and look. While I will admit it that it does get some getting used to over time you will start liking it. Now onto the show itself, I love it. For the first time in a longtime you get to see the detective side of batman with him making many clever observations (eg the one he makes between Tatsu and Alfred). Plus we are getting to see a whole new rogues gallery many of whom have been taken from Grant Morrisson's highly acclaimed batman run *Mr Pyg and Mr. Toad.
I am digging the Tatsu character, though I have never been a fan of hers in the comic books I think she fits marvelously in the show, plus her past is really interesting and I am looking forward to seeing how they will unveil it to us. Alfred is more gruffier and badass and I dig that, it's a new interpretation of one the most enduring comic book characters ever and it's a pretty ballsy move, but till now I think it is working for him. Plus you get to see a new dynamic between Gordon and Batman because Gordon doesn't completely trust Batman yet which is a little bit different from what we are used to, so once again we get to see some pretty interesting chemistry and character dynamic there. Bruce Wayne aka our beloved caped hero hasn't changed much apart from the above mentioned detective skills and hey, we don't want our batsy to change that much now do we?
Even though we have had many batman animated series before this , this one actually feels like something new and different and I appreciate that. 6 episodes in and I am firmly behind this show and I have faith that in time it will become something as special as the original Batman TAS.
