It was a dark time - the eight years between BATMAN & ROBIN and BATMAN BEGINS - and The WB decided to fill it with the live-action superhero series BIRDS OF PREY. Created by Laeta Kalogridis (TERMINATOR GENISYS), with many episodes written by Melissa Rosenberg (TWILIGHT, JESSICA JONES), the short-lived BIRDS OF PREY teamed up Batman's daughter, Black Canary's daughter, the former Batgirl and Alfred Pennyworth against a new generation of supervillains in New Gotham, led by the first live-action version of Harley Quinn, played by Mia Sara (FERRIS BUELLER'S DAY OFF).
But was BIRDS OF PREY canceled too soon? Join your hosts William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold as they pluck away at this cult favorite series, and find out what was ahead of its time and what feels like a relic from the early 2000s. Was BIRDS OF PREY the show we needed, the show we deserved, or just the best we could get in 2002?
