Slick, fun, great cast
This show has the kind of plot structure that works best for addicting television shows. Like "X-files," "Buffy" and "Angel," the shows mostly focus on a plot that begins and is resolved within the one hour. However, many of these plots lend themselves to the throughplot, a second plot that lasts entire seasons and is basically the bad guy's plan to take over the town. So there's a bit of serial, but not so much that you can't come in mid-season. I don't know what confused the other commentator. The introduction makes everything very clear. There are humans and meta-humans. Meta-humans have '"X" Men' type qualities. Two of our fighting trio are meta-human. Batgirl, who is called "Oracle" now, is just a human.
It's great to see Mia Sara working again, this time as the "bad guy." She's obviously having a lot of fun playing the successor to the Joker and she's a lot of fun to watch. And you gotta give kudos to the network for having an inter-racial romance.
The action scenes are very well done. The wires aren't super obvious, the kicks are quick. I watch very little television as feature films are my main addiction, but this one is getting added to my personal faves. I also recommend The Dead Zone, Gilmore Girls and Alias.
