Season 2 of Harley Quinn Looks Dope!

The second season of the Harley Quinn cartoon starts on April 3 and I’m excited! Turns out, WB and DC ordered a full 26 episodes and then decided to split them into 13-episode seasons. That works fine for me!

Because check out this sweet as heck trailer!

I love this show! It’s hilarious, it’s raunchy, it’s emotional, it’s well-written and well-developed. It’s perfect all the way around. And the new season is going to feature Catwoman, Batgirl and the ever-evolving relationship between Harley and Poison Ivy!

This show is great and I highly recommend it to all of you! It comes out weekly, though, so you can’t binge it in the virus apocalypse.

6 Thoughts on the First Season of Harley Quinn

Good golly, Miss Molly! The Harley Quinn cartoon show was an absolute delight! I had high hopes for the series after seeing the first few trailers. Then the show captured me from the very first scene of the very first episode! A sharp, visceral cartoon that wasn’t afraid to be vicious, while also telling a very good, character-focused story.

TV Rating: 10/10 – Fantastic!

The Harley Quinn cartoon ran for 13 episodes on the DC Universe streaming service, with the final episode airing this past Friday. The next season is right around the corner in April, and I am thrilled! Harley Quinn is a hard R-rated show that doesn’t skimp on the violence and language, while making sure to use all of that to be funny and smart. It’s a triumph of well-written humor, voice acting, storytelling and more! Not every episode was a masterpiece, and there were some poor choices here and there, but overall, this first season was phenomenal television!

Join me after the jump for my thoughts and full review on the first season of Harley Quinn! Expect FULL SPOILERS for the season!

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 2/15/20

I have an addiction to ordering graphic novels on Amazon. Admitting I have a problem is the first step. But in better news, I finally have my hands on Spider-Man: Life Story! I’ll let you know what I think!

Comic Book of the Week goes to Thor #3, because nothing tickles my pinks quite like an awesome guest appearance from Beta Ray Bill!

Everybody in new outfits!

Meanwhile, I didn’t like the Sonic the Hedgehog movie. I suppose one argument could be made that I should cut an obvious kids’ movie some slack, but we’ve all seen good kids movies. This is just a dumb film filled with cliches and tropes. And they don’t really get Sonic right. He’s all about attitude, but movie Sonic is a hopeful, lonely kid who just wants a friend. And as the tropes dictate, he gets at least one.

Comic Reviews: Go Go Power Rangers #29, The Green Lantern #1, Harley Quinn and the Birds of Prey #1, Iron Man 2020 #2, Thor #3 and X-Men #6.

6 Other Badass Lady Heroes for a Birds of Prey Sequel

The Birds of Prey movie is here! DC Comics has fully abandoned their plans to try and repeat the success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and they are instead just knocking out random character movies for the fun of it! We’re getting a legit, live action movie about the Birds of Prey. How cool is that? Granted, it’s built around Harley Quinn, but she was the best part of Suicide Squad so I am 100% OK with this.

Birds of Prey Sequel List 01

It’s movie time!

Margot Robbie said in a recent interview with Nerdist that she decided to make Birds of Prey instead of Gotham City Sirens because she read the comics and realized that Birds of Prey focused on a lot more obscure characters. Gotham City Sirens is Harley teamed up with Catwoman and Poison Ivy, who are both very popular and well-known characters. Whereas Birds of Prey is going to feature Huntress, Black Canary, Cassandra Cain and Rene Montoya! Being a fan of obscure comic book characters, this is an idea I can absolutely get behind! Let’s show off more lesser known badass lady superheroes!

So join me after the jump for six character suggestions I have for a potential Birds of Prey sequel film!

Birds of Prey Looks Crazier and Crazier!

Birds of Prey and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn is only one month away and so another trailer has landed on our internets to show us how wackadoo it’s going to be! And it’s going to be very wackadoo!

I’m a little nervous about this movie. It comes out in February, early February, which is always an awkward time for new movies. But we’ve had some great ones in past years, like Black Panther and The LEGO Movie. Could Birds of Prey be one of those? I like how it looks so far. I think Margot Robbie is great as Harley Quinn and I have high hopes for the rest of this nifty cast.

But is it going to be too wackadoo for audiences? We’ll find out on Feb. 7!
