6 Thoughts on the Second Season of Harley Quinn

Harley Quinn is the best DC animated series since Justice League Unlimited. That’s not hyperbole. I know people enjoy the deep bench of Young Justice, and I’m sure those non-BTAS cartoons have their fans, but none of them are the complete masterpiece that is Harley Quinn.

TV Rating: 10/10 – Fantastic!

I have loved this show from the first minutes of the first episode. Harley Quinn burst to life with sharp humor, hilarious violence and a chef’s kiss perfect use of raunch. I loved Season 1, and Season 2 is just as good, if not better. Even though the two seasons were written and produced back-to-back, Season 2 shows a clear confidence that raises this cartoon to new heights. This is a show unafraid to mess with the status quo, while also displaying a deep and loving adoration for all of DC canon.

It’s also a show that knows exactly the story it wants to tell and uses its time, its pacing and its writing to tell that story masterfully. Join me after the jump for my thoughts on the second season of Harley Quinn! Expect FULL SPOILERS for the entire show.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 6/27/20

The coronavirus is getting worse here in America, but comics are still coming out! So let’s keep my mind occupied while I continue to hole up in this increasingly small apartment. Thankfully, I’ve got the likes of Batman and Thor to keep me company this week.

Comic Book of the Week goes to Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #50, a fun and exciting climax that lives up to all of the build-up. Lots of cool moments in this one.

I’ve never seen a Zord posed like that!

Meanwhile, life continues on as normal. I still haven’t read Money Shot by Tim Seeley, but I promise I will. Tim, if you’re reading this, I promise to read your comic. I’ve been enjoying The Last of Us Part II. It’s a great game so far. I recently finished all of My Hero Academia. That was a trip! Very good anime. And the comic book industry is going through a bit #MeToo movement, which I fully support. Believe the victims. Ditch the perpetrators.

Comic Reviews: Batman #93, Harley Quinn and the Birds of Prey #2, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #50 and Thor #5.

Won’t Somebody Think of the Movie Parody Channels?

With Hollywood shut down and no new movies coming out, what have our favorite movie parody YouTube channels been up to all this time? They won’t have any summer blockbusters to parody! They’re stuck making videos of movies from earlier this year.

Like How Birds of Prey Should Have Ended!

The HISHE people give it to ole college try with this one, and it’s actually pretty good. I salute them for that. Now they can do Bloodshot…and Sonic the Hedgehog…and…Portrait of a Lady on Fire? That was a good film.

Some Honest Trailers for this Honest Friday

Since I no longer have comics to talk about, it’s a good thing I’ve saved up a couple of good YouTube videos to use on lazy Fridays like this one. Arguably, I should have plenty of time to write up some original pieces for this blog, but I have not yet transitioned out of the ‘lay on my couch staring at my ceiling’ phase of quarantine.

So how about the Honest Trailer of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker!

Ha, yeah. The movie was all those things. In time, I’m probably going to feel the same way about The Rise of Skywalker as I do the other new Star Wars movies. Which is that it’s fine, but I just don’t care.

How about the Honest Trailer for Harley Quinn: Birds of Prey?

Also a movie I enjoyed. I’m sad it wasn’t a success and we probably won’t get a sequel of any kind. But at least we’ve got parody videos!

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.
