This summer our Bird Watching team of Meredith Tomeo and Caleb Mozzocco endeavored to watch, re-watch, and dissect every episode of the half-forgotten, critically-ignored 2002 live-action Birds of Prey TV show in order to determine if it really deserved its fate, or if it was perhaps simply a show ahead of its time.
In this final installment of the series, they render their verdict on the show, and try to answer some of the questions they had before they first hit play on the DVD collection of the series.
This is it! The final episode of the series! A newly empowered Harley Quinn attacks the Birds of Prey head-on, taking over their base and plunging all of New Gotham into complete, apocalyptic (and decidedly off-screen) chaos! It will take the combined efforts of all three Birds of Prey and both Bros of Prey (Alfred and Reese) to punch and kick the city back to safety!
Today is Bisexual Awareness Day, the finale of Bisexual Awareness Week. As a bisexual comics fan, I'm always on the lookout for bi characters. It's exciting how many are official now, like Catwoman, Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy, and probably some characters who aren't female Bat-villains as well.
We could certainly use more, though, and there are a lot of established characters who have already been hinted to be bisexual, or who very plausibly could be. So here's a list of characters who would we'd like to see come out as bi, to their benefit, our benefit, and the benefit of the companies that publish them.
The Birds and the Gotham police attempt to save a mafia informant from his former gang in the action movie-style car chase/shootout that opens the second issue of Batgirl And The Birds Of Prey #2, written by Julie Benson and Shawna Benson, with art by Claire Roe.
Welcome to Give ‘Em Elle, a weekly column that hopes to bridge the gap between old school comics fandom and the progressive edge of comics culture. I've gotten a lot of questions over the months since I started this column, and since I don't even do a question every single week, I know I'll never get to all of them. So this week I decided to take several in one go, for more of a grab bag feel. But don't worry, I'm sure I'll be back to giving one long hot (or cold) take by next week.
In this episode, Barbara Gordon (Dina Meyer) is faced with an enemy from her days as Batgirl, who returns to New Gotham at the exact same time that Helena Kyle (Ashley Scott) is reunited with best friend from high school. Coincidence? (Spoiler: No.) "Lady Shiva" originally aired on November 27 of 2002, and was written by Adam Armus, Kay Foster, Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz and directed by John Kretchmer.
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 Prey TV 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 most glaring omission from a show based on the Birds Of Prey comics is finally corrected, at least temporarily, when Black Canary makes the scene. What is her connection to the blond girl named Dinah, and just how happy is everyone going to be to see Black Canary? "Sins of the Mother" will provide the answers. The episode originally aired on November 6 of 2002, and was written by Melissa Rosenberg and Hans Tobeason, and directed by Jeff Woolnough.

In this episode, the Birds face their greatest challenge to date: babysitting. Complicating matters is the fact that the baby in their care is no ordinary baby... and Harley Quinn can't wait to get her evil psychoanalyzing hands on it. "Three Birds and a Baby" originally aired on October 30 of 2002, and was written by David H. Goodman and Julie Hess, and directed by Craig Zisk.
Can’t decide which superheroes are your favorites? Why not enjoy a little bit of all of them? That's the great thing about superhero teams; they bring together everyone from the most famous and iconic heroes to the most bizarre and obscure. And no superteam captures that idea better than the Justice League.
For your viewing pleasure, we’ve amassed our own super gallery featuring cosplayers portraying members of the Justice League throughout the years. Every cape, every cowl, every leotard featured shows off the enormous wealth of talent on the part of the cosplayers who take up these heroes' mantles. These are the best Justice League cosplays ever.
In this episode, Detective Jesse Reese (Shemar Moore) gets a new partner with a sinister agenda, both Barbara Gordon (Dina Meyer) and Helena Kyle (Ashley Scott) face roadblocks in their respective romantic relationships, Harley Quinn takes an episode off, and we find out that the show's producers apparently had difficulty determining the difference between DC's metahumans and Marvel's mutants. "Prey For The Hunter" originally aired on October 23 of 2002, and was written by Edward Kitsis, Adam Horowitz, Adam Armus and Kay Foster and was directed by Chris Long.
