The insanity (and what else would you expect) of Harley Quinn’s first season continues. The gang has relocated to the Abandoned Mall of Villainy, and are still trying to get the attention Harley feels is their due.
This is the second episode in a row on Harley Quinn where they do what could be a fun look “behind the scenes” of the villain scene, but it’s been done before. At least the opening bit has.
Harley has a goal and a crew, but she has a ways to go in order to get where she wants to be. This episode brings in a few other DC names, some famous people voicing them, and a few odd analogies that I’ve actually heard before.
In the first episode, we met the players and got a general idea of who’s who. In the second, we got something of an idea of what Harley wanted and a few of the obstacles in her way. Now, she’s starting to work on actually getting what she wants, and, of course, that doesn’t go smoothly.
I admit that I’m having a split reaction to DC Universe’s Harley Quinn. The writing, casting, and voice performances are actually pretty good. The blood-spatter fight scenes aren’t to my taste at all. Harley is a favorite character of mine, I’m just not sure about this take on some of it.
…the former psychiatrist turned loony villain/anti-hero (depending on who’s writing her), Harley Quinn. The DC Universe streaming service went ahead with an animated series for the character, with a 13 episode first season and a roughly half hour running time per episode.
DC continues to do really well with their animated movies. Their latest offering, “Batman and Harley Quinn” was another entertainingly good time. And they are definitely making the most of not having to worry about being a “kids’ cartoon” any more with their theatrical and Digital Video releases. Just like the adaptation of The Killing Joke dealt with a lot more adult themes, they do some scenes that never would have flown in the WB or Cartoon Network shows.
