Just forget the words and sing along

Yay! I finally got to catch an episode of Birds of Prey. We're getting a bunch of free cable channels this month, and one of them is the all action channel. They show Birds of Prey in re-runs.

For those who blinked and missed it...Birds of Prey was the first attempt by the WB Network to duplicate the success of Smallville. Based on one of the lesser Batman comics, Birds of Prey is about Oracle, the Huntress, and the Black Canary teaming up to keep Gotham City safe. In the show, their nemesis was the villanous head psychiatrist of Arkham Asylum, Dr. Harleen Quinzell; the once and future Harley Quinn.

Anyway, based on the one episode, I could see why it died a quick death. Really offered nothing new in the superhero genre, or the kinda clever re-interpretation that we get with Smallville. Just hot chicks in tight outfits fighting crime, and filmed on a really low budget in Vancouver.

But still...hot chicks in tight outfits.

Next Issue...The Killing Joke
