I just saw that iTunes is carrying the entire series (cancelled in first season, of course). Is it any good? The 5 reviews were mixed.

Thanks.

I saw the pilot and it didn't grab me. Fairly wooden acting and standard plot points didn't help.
Very much a missed opportunity IMO to create something good.

I'd try and watch some of it first before you pay for anything.

Thanks, LWaves. Too bad. I like hot women in black leather. (Did I say that out loud?)

I liked it, though you have to take it as a pre-Crisis/Elseworlds take on the girls (the metahuman Helena Kyle Huntress threw me for a bit). Plus it was cool to see them dancing around the Batmythos just enough to tell the story and not get bogged down (flashback Batman was never seen clearly, the Joker was only seen in silhouette, Robin was name-dropped, Bludhaven was mentioned, etc).

'Course, it's still more comic-accurate and respectful of DCU history than Smallville.
