It gets steadily better. As I’ve said up-thread, this series seems to have set itself the tricky balancing act of blending camp 60s style Batmannishness (without Batman) with some really rather dark stuff in a gothic art design stylee, resulting in some quite shocking black humour sometimes. It took them a while, but they’ve been consistently hitting the right balance for many shows now, and the way it’s putting the great rogue’s gallery under scrutiny at a leisurely pace is actually quite entertainnig.
It’s turned out to be a good series, perhaps not as good as The Flash or Arrow (although this season’s Arrow has been a tad disappointing in some ways), but about on a level with Marvel’s Agents. Occasionally brilliant, shocking, surprising, but a bit too uneven to be a true classic.
If you only had the time to watch one or two comics/tv shows perhaps this wouldn’t be one of them, but if you’ve got the leeway to watch all the shows, it’s definitely got its moments.
