After five long years of fans begging and pleading, the way too-short TV series Birds of Prey is getting a complete DVD release! The news is truly worth shouting about.

Loosely based on DC Comics and a variety of other sources with a touch of Marvel's the X-Men thrown in, the series continues the legend of The Batman.

We enter the future, dark and fantastic world of New Gotham City. Long after The Batman has driven himself into exile, his legacy lives on in the form of the Birds of Prey - Black Canary, Oracle, and the Huntress.

From the creators of the CW hit Smallville, Birds of the Prey was produced in 2002 for the now defunct WB, but had only 13 episodes before cancellation. Since then, its devoted fan base worked tirelessly to have the series released on DVD. It was a really exciting action show, breaking new ground because ALL of the lead characters were women.

This boxed set collects all 13 episodes and a never-collected-on-DVD before Flash-animated series "Gotham Girls."

Awesomely, it also includes the unaired pilot, which featured Sherilyn Fenn (Twin Peaks) in the role of Dr. Quinzel. Mia Sara was later cast as Quinzel in the series. She also appeared in the AIRED pilot. Interestingly, all of the scenes featuring the character in the AIRED pilot were reshot with Sara, word-for-word.

Also of note, the aspect ratio of the episodes in the set will be full frame, but will have dark bars on top and on bottom to mimic widescreen.

While normal citizens slept, the Birds of Prey flocked together to fight crime on the streets of New Gotham City. Several years after the city was abandoned by Batman, the awesome threesome of Huntress (Ashley Scott), Oracle (Dina Meyer), and Black Canary (Rachel Skarsten) was formed.

Despite the many liberties it took with DC mythology, Birds of Prey displayed a boat load of promise, but sadly got the axe before it had the chance to grow into something special. The story revolves around Helena Kyle, AKA The Huntress (Jericho's Ashley Scott), who just so happens to be the daughter of Batman and Catwoman. She joins forces with the wheelchair-bound former Batgirl Barbara Gordon (Dina Meyer), and the telepathic Dinah (Rachel Skarsten) to fight crime in Gotham City when Batman mysteriously disappears. Other familiar faces from the Batman world appear also throughout the course of the series, including trusty butler Alfred (Ian Abercrombie), Harley Quinn (Mia Sara), and even the Joker (played by Roger Stoneburner with the voice of Batman: The Animated Series' own Mark Hamil!), but there were often times when the show just felt as if it wasn't sure of what it was. Granted though, Birds of Prey never came off as cheesey and sugar-coated as Smallville, and by the time the series came to an end, things were just starting to really pick up. Despite it's flaws though, Birds of Prey always managed to entertain. Who knows what might have been, but the fact is Birds of Prey was never given the time and opportunity to grow, which is a crying shame. Its great that WB finally had the good sense to release the series on DVD, which has been long overdue to say the least.

By the time they finished airing the new episodes I was sad to see it go. This was a show that would eventually build on the character driven stories to show some fine performances by the leads. The interplay between the characters was well balanced and entertaining. The addition of Mia Sara as Harley toward the end of the series was fantastic. Great villians make for great heros. Nice casting.

I waited a while to see a decent program with Dina Meyer as a lead. This was that show for me. Ashley and Rachel both seemed to dive into their parts with some flair. With Alfred and the detective rounding out the regulars.

My one criticism was that (especially on my recorded tapes) the sound volume seemed to be very low at times. Not so, with other shows I had recorded. I had to rewind and turn the volume up to catch a joke spoken "under the breath" more than once. Worth the effort, but not something I would expect the casual viewer to go through.

The start was a bit slow, but the series did grow on me. I hope to view the performances again, maybe in a better format. Give those ladies (and gentlemen) their wings once again.

Okay, I just picked up the 'Birds of Prey' DVD set.
It looks and sounds fine, but here are a couple of things that you will probably want to prepare yourself for before buying it, so you won't be dissappointed.

1) Though it is in the original 'widescreen' aspect ratio, IT IS NOT enhanced for widescreen televisions (anamorphic widescreen). What does this mean? Well, if you have a standard TV, you will have a black border at the top and bottom of your screen. If you have a 16:9 TV, you will have to blow the picture up to fit the screen (which means a lower picture quality) or else you will have a black border surrounding the entire picture.

note : Oddly enough, the 'Unaired Pilot' IS enhanced for 16:9 televisions. Hmmm....

2) A great deal of the music that was on the show at the time that it originally aired (including the original theme song by Aimee Allen) has been replaced for the DVD (most likely to keep down the cost of the licensing to include it in on the DVD). (In the finale, the TATU song that played during the big action scene is most notably gone.)

note : Though the Michelle Branch song has been replaced at the end of the 'Unaired Pilot', it is still there at the end of the 'Aired Pilot'.

BUT...

I am glad that they released the set. It looks better than my VHS-taped off of TV copied with all of the station logos blocking portions of the picture. I do wish that the entire DVD was 16:9 enhanced. And I do wish they would have been able to leave the great theme music during the titles.

Finally on DVD!
I thought this show was a cool concept, when I first heard about it. A new generation of heroes, where they had a blank canvas to create, within the DC world. Unlike 'Smallville', 'Birds of Prey' had no inevitable ending and THAT is what drew me to watch it.

After seeing it, it wasn't bad. Sure,... Read More
