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!
It’s that time of year! When Joker comes out on DVD and the internet is awash with Joker content to capitalize on the SEO! I’m no internet expert, nor was I particularly a fan of Joker, but I’m all about sharing some quality-made internet comedy.
Like How Joker Should Have Ended!
Once again, the HISHE people focus more on their own running gags than on an actual alternate ending to Joker…but this one was still funny. Solid comedy all-around, including the attention to detail of an all-80s Villains Pub.
Then we’ve also got the Tell It Animated guy doing the Joker!
He’s also doing a ton of ads, apparently. But hey, I’m no fool. You make that money, friend! You turn your awesome idea into a moneymaker! You make it happen!
And do Iron Man next. Or James Bond.
I don’t watch Saturday Night Live, haven’t for at least a decade. But like most comedy these days, a lot of it shows up on YouTube the next morning. Such is life. Which is where I watched this funny Joker parody starring David Harbour as a gritty Oscar the Grouch!
That’s some good parody! I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did.
It’s Joker time! I’m going to head out and see the movie after work today. As I’ve mentioned before, I’ve never really cared about the Joker as a character, so I’m not particularly excited for this film. But I’m hoping it’s good!
What’s definitely good is the 1960s Batman movie, starring the Joker! Honestly!
I was a huge fan of the original live action Batman TV show growing up. That was good, silly fun. I haven’t seen this movie in awhile, and I doubt it holds up by today’s standards, but it’s perfect fodder for Honest Trailers to take down a notch!
Also, Robin doesn’t suck!
I’m not just all about the Marvel, people! I like DC stuff too! At least when they deliver good stuff! For example, I’m pretty excited by this trailer for the second season of Titans. I enjoyed the first season, especially all the awesome, live action Robin stuff. Season 2 seems to be taking us closer to Nightwing!
And, thankfully, we’ve got a Bruce Wayne for Dick Grayson to bounce off of. It was really frustrating when all of Dick Grayson’s seminal moments growing up were alone instead of with Bruce/Batman.
The new season starts on Sept. 6 — my birthday!
There’s also a new trailer for the Joker movie. I am less excited about this one.
As I’ve mentioned plenty of times before, I just don’t care about the Joker. And a movie about the Joker without Batman? I dunno…Granted, I’ll go see it opening day, because that’s the sort of person I am. But this trailer isn’t getting me too excited. Seems like just a crazy movie about a guy going crazy who happens to be the Joker.
But we’ll see! Maybe it’ll be really good. Joker arrives in theaters on Oct. 4.
