Birds of Prey: The Complete Series DVD Review

Birds of Prey: The Complete Series DVD

Available to own Tuesday, July 15, 2008!

Synopsis: Who will stand up to villains now that a heartbroken Dark Knight has mysteriously vanished? Never fear, New Gothamites, a trio of champions is ready to take wing - and Helena, the daughter of Batman and Catwoman, is among them. She calls herself Huntress and crime is her prey. Teenaged Dinah is the youngest of the group, learning as she goes and gifted in clairvoyance. And overseeing the awesome threesome's high-tech nerve center is Batgirl. Left wheelchair-bound by The Joker, she has reinvented herself as Oracle, the team's cyber expert. Huntress, Dinah, Oracle: They are the Birds of Prey. Fighting together. Living together. And soaring into adventure together in 13 breathtaking live-action episodes.

Review: This show was very controvertial when it first aired years ago. It took some pre-crisis origins and twisted them around to create a show that most fans just couldn't get behind. In watching the show years later, its not so bad, though. Perhaps its years of Smallville that have calmed me or just the years of distance..but honestly this wasn't too terrible. The best part of this DVD, though, is the complete series of flash animation Gotham Girls cartoons! These three minute shorts appeared online many years ago and have been a fan favorite ever since. Its nice to have them on DVD in some capacity.
