User Reviews

Forget this has anything to do with the DC universe
18 February 2020 | by triggergotstuffedSee all my reviews

What a wonderfully entertaining show. I began watching this because of the first trailer as it reminded me of the Bond films of the sixties. I wasn't wrong or disappointed.

This show was well written and produced. The cast are excellent and the parts are well played. And boy, does Alfie (Alfred) sound like a young Michael Caine. The story is straight out of the 1930s and the 2010s. The hard right vs the hard left vs the status quo. I recommend this show to anyone that enjoys a very good action/adventure story. I am sorry that they originally sold this as an origin story of the relationship between the senior Wayne and his Butler because the story has nothing to do with the Batman universe and is all the better for it. While I am looking forward to the next season, if the show had ended after one season I would still be very satisfied.

Definitely worth watching!
