"Birds Of Prey" is based on several DC comic titles of the same name, starring computer-savvy Barbara Gordon, a.k.a. Oracle, Helena Kyle, a.k.a. Huntress, and Dinah Redmond (known as Black Canary in the comics). Together, they make up the Birds Of Prey, protectors of New Gotham after the legendary Batman has seemingly retired. Oracle heads the group, who make their headquarters in the top of a New Gotham landmark, the clock tower. The acting is quite good, the look and cinemaphotography is also well done, and the development of the storylines are very similar to those found in the comics.

First of all, this show does not follow the DC universe continuity in its entirety. The biggest difference is the fact that Helena is the daughter of Bruce Wayne/Batman and Catwoman/Selina Kyle as opposed to being the daughter of members of the Italian mob. Though this may come as a shock in the first episode, it seems to be just as good as a backstory for this Helena as the comics' version.

The wonderful character of Harley Quinn is also here for the first and so far only official small screen appearance. Unlike the comics, her character is much smarter and more of a calculating psychopath, yet the core reason of her character's existence, her love for "Mista J" is still here (along with the blonde hair).

Even though this series was cancelled after a short run, it did a good job of attempting to pull in audiences who might not be familiar with the Birds Of Prey comics by showing how Batman, Joker, and Batgirl--all well known characters--played a major role in the backstory of this series.

This was a great show that I enjoyed when it first aired on TV, then bought the complete series a few years ago to share with my Daughter. A great introduction to some of the strong heroines of DC Comics. Lots of action and interesting story lines. Unfortunately, it was cancelled WAY too soon and never had the opportunity to answer all of the questions that had arisen. Definitely worth watching & owning!

This is like watching the modern version of Batman except all the primary characters are women and there are no giant BANG, POW or other expressions exploding on the screen. I have to admit that the plots are so much better and they usually bring in a guest character ever once in a while like 'the Black Canary'. The plots are much better and fun to watch, it is good clean fun for the family and in most of the shows there is a lesson learned especially for teenage girls. All around a good 4 star show

This counts as a near miss - great idea, lousy execution. Start out with three decent actresses as hot female superheros (heroines fighting crime in plunging necklines) and the entire DC Batman canon to riff off. That's a concept you can work with. If you have any money. The problem seems to stem from low budget. The effects are laughable, most of the costumes (esp Batman) are cheesy, the dialouge is cringe inducing. Low lighting can only go so far to make up for the makeshift sets. Simple things like being able to afford multiple takes and good editing can go a long way to improve a show. But it is expensive. Likewise decent CGI. As mentioned elsewhere the three principals do their best but they don't have a lot to work with. BTW: the series includes a brief appearance by Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad).

i see what they wanted to do here but it just completely misses what made the source material cool. Making Dinah a psychic was madness. Valiant try but, ultimately a fail. sorry. I'd love to see a revamp.

An interesting take on the daughter of the world's greatest detective. This episode has a more early 2000's feel to it. The filming is reminiscent of marvels "Night man" TV show (1997-1999)and the batman featuring Michael Keating. It is entertaining but the filming can use some work.

Great show. Cancelled way too soon. It has a great female cast without pushing the feminism TOO far. I love the play on the story lines and I'd recommend it for any DC lovers: man or woman. After all, who can resist hot girls in leather?
