‘BIRDS OF PREY’ TV REWATCH, EPISODE 6: ‘PRIMAL SCREAM’

BOPRecap_06

Shortly after the debut of Smallville, but long before comic book superhero TV shows were as commonplace as they are today, the WB launched a live-action Birds of PreyTV series that lasted just one 13-episode season, and seems little mourned today. In an effort to determine just what went wrong with the seemingly before-its-time show, our Bird Watching team of Meredith Tomeo and Caleb Mozzocco are watching and dissecting every episode. You can watch along with us on DVD or digitally on iTunes or Amazon.

In this episode, the producers do their level best to adapt Point Break with Huntress in the Johnny Utah role. For better or worse, it is neither as awesome nor as spectacularly bad as that sounds. "Primal Scream" originally aired on November 13 of 2002, and was written by Edward Kitsis, Adam Horowitz, Adam Armus and Kay Foster, and directed by Jim Charleston.

‘Birds of Prey’ TV Rewatch, Episode 1: ‘Pilot’

BOPRecap_01

In the long ago year of 2002, the WB debuted a live-action television drama based on DC's Batman family of comic books, past and present. Entitled Birds of Prey, it focused on Batgirl-turned-Oracle Barbara Gordon, and Batman and Catwoman's vigilante daughter The Huntress, working together to defend the streets of New Gotham after The Dark Knight abandoned the city under mysterious circumstances. It was the first live-action Batman TV show since the 1966-68 series, and an early example of the modern comic book superhero TV show.

Was Birds of Prey a good show that hit at the wrong time, or was it really a bad show that only deserved 13 episodes? We're going to find out with Bird Watching, a look back at every episode of the series. Your bird watchers are Caleb Mozzocco, long-time ComicsAlliance contributor and a guy with a longbox full of Birds of Prey comics, and Meredith Tomeo, a librarian who specializes in media, an experienced watcher of superhero television, and a Barbara Gordon fan (Babs being a sort of patron superhero of librarians, after all).
