I am really looking forward to this show. Seeing the more detective side of Batman. Katana is more of a partner and not side sidekick, which works for me. Looking forward to seeing the more obscure villains like Anarky, Magpie, Professor Pyg, Mr. Toad, King Kraken. I was looking at some other villains that haven't been used and I would love to see Hush, The Great White Shark, Mr. Zsasz, The Monk and Dala, Dr. Death, Nocturna, Dr. Hurt and the Club of Villains, Flamingo, The White Rabbit, maybe new 52 villains like The Court of Owls ( which could be used in another season), Mr. Toxic, Snakeskin, Mr. Combustable, Hypnotic ( although the later of these did not have much character development yet since Tony Daniel left but they would look great on the show), Cornelius Stirk, King Snake, Facade, Black Spider, Doctor Phosphorus, The Tally Man, The Mime, Ratcatcher, The Mortician, The Spook, The Charlatan ( Paul Sloane, who was a Pre-Crisis Two-Face II after Harvey Dent, but was made into the villain the Charlatan). Although these characters had small appearances I agree from an earlier post that I would like to see The Cluemaster and Spellbinder.. they really aren't known outside the comic book world.I would also like to see Catman as well, Blake was in Cult of the Cat in TNBA and in TTBATB, but not much was done with them. Looks like at some point the Outsiders will form since we have Katana and Metamorpho. I like Alfred in this as well.

I watched The Batman and thought pretty strongly that the inclusion of Batgirl was the best/most interesting thing about the show. Yet, just a few years later, it barely registers in my memory. The people who watch this stuff who aren't diehard members of fandom aren't likely to care whether Batman's female sidekick is Batgirl Barbara, Batgirl Cassie, Katana, or Squirrel Girl. They may take passing note of it, but they aren't going to care about it very much, and the simple fact of the change, in and of itself, isn't likely to have much impact on their interest or enjoyment of the show because they didn't have that much emotional investment in any particular iteration of the characters to to begin with. They'll figure out pretty quickly that it's a different show with no connection to the previous ones and start fresh from there.
I know it's sometimes hard to see it from an interior perspective, but in the bigger picture, the number of people who get really worked up over that kind of thing is actually pretty small.
I think its interesting they made one of the villians look like Lady Gaga. Since I can't stand her, I may give this show a chance.
I actually liked the "The Batman" cartoon. For me it started to really get good when Batman more or less joins the JLA and we get some Brave and the Boldesque team ups.
A woman can move a lot faster with her skirt up than a man can with his pants down.
i liked the batman's version of clayface
