    I thought tonight's new episode with Lady Shiva was okay. Of course I have no idea how they'll keep her quiet w/r/t their secret identities.

    The whole Batman thing was a red herring (of course).

    I did enjoy seeing the nod to the 2 guys who re-vitalized Batman in the 1970's with the corner street signs that opened the Batgirl-Lady Shiva confrontation: O'Neil and Adams (Denny O'Neil was the writer and Neal Adams was the artist for a really good run of Batman stories where a realistic style was applied to the Dark Knight for the first time).

    The whole Dinah subplot was average, to be expected for a hero-in-training still in high school, but the whole high school feel isn't there.

    The main story was okay, wasn't really horrible, but wasn't great.

    If anyone cares, model Sung Hi Lee played Lady Shiva.

    Saw the show for the first time tonight and liked it enough to watch again, but I hear it has been canceled already.

    It looked like a live action Batman Beyond (former hero in wheelchair guiding young protege via headset, a few decades after Batman retired), except with an all-female cast.

    I guess we can hope for a DVD box set with the half season's worth.

    We can HOPE for such a set, but there is no evidence that we'll get one.

    However, going multiregion will probably help me in that regard.

    But the show's producers will want to recoup the money that they lost. They know there's a built in Bat-fan-base (Bat-base?) that will want it.
