A moment of silence, for 11 years ago today, the final episode of Birds of Prey aired on the WB. And on that night, I swore a vow on the show’s grave that I would one day avenge it with an unofficial commentary podcast.
No but for serious, I just finished recording the first teaser episode of the podcast! Should be posted in a few days. Check back soon!

Wouldn’t it have been a great prank from The WB if every time there was an action scene they put in a sound effects card, a la the William Dozier Batman show in the ’60’s? Some day I’d love to see a video of Birds fights with the cards super-imposed.

With the podcast starting in few weeks, let’s all take a moment to remember what we love about the show. Here is a quick video from Youtube featuring the opening Alfred narration and the original opening credits with Aimee Allen’s “I’d Start a Revolution”. Of course, this song was later replaced for the official DVD release, but that’s what the internet is for.

Of course, the real love story on the show was Barbara Gordon and her wheelchair (those two were practically inseparable), but Helena and Reese take second place for sure.
Gotta love it when the woman in the wheelchair is the only one to enter the room secretly. Thankfully, she’s also the only one who thinks to bring a damn batarang.
