Yeah, I’m finding the Bruce Wayne bits surprisingly more engaging than I initially thought I would, and the Selina bits were cute too.
Just like with the villains, building up the Batman character piece by tiny piece is a good schtick. I guess they just have to pace it so they don’t become too much like the finished characters too quickly. You just want the hints and nascent tendencies really. It’s kind of cool that Batman’s getting his very first lessons in fighting from Alfred with some good old fashioned British boxing lessons (guess Alfred’s meant to be ex-military or something? - he certainly put an armlock on Montoya’s partner the other week :) ).
Penguin is still the main attraction this season though, really well-done character, acting and writing wise, with a sense of over-arching plot on the gangster side developing. But the buddy cop stuff, and the Gordon/Barbara/Montoya triangle are good too.
