For some reason, I decided that I had to watch Birds of Prey this week. It was made in 2002, and it shows: It's basically Charmed set in the DC universe, featuring Barbara Gordon/Oracle (the show explains how she got from Batgirl to Oracle), Helena Kyle/the Huntress, and Dinah something-or-other/a blonde teenager who shows up in New Gotham and turns out to be a metahuman. There's also a guy cop who works with the Huntress, because OF COURSE there has to be a cop working with them, but he deals almost exclusively with the Huntress, not the whole trio. Oh, and Dr. Harleen Quinzel is in there. She's Helena's therapist. So that's interesting to watch.
Anyway. It's well worth my $5 rental fee, but I'm glad I had that option and didn't have to pay two bucks an episode for it. There are only thirteen episodes, so it's not taking very long to get through it. I'm halfway through, and if I didn't like Charmed, it would be a slog, but I do like Charmed, so I'm entertained. I'm frustrated, though, because I keep thinking about what could have been if Fox or the CW could have gotten their hands on this today. Especially the CW. They would have to do some work to be able to weave it into their DC world, but I think it would have been worth it to be able to have some of these characters cross over.
