Review by Kendra Hale
“Finding Mr Right” launches us into another day in Harley Quinn’s quest to be seen as a true villain. Her new crew in tow, she’s in search of the one thing all good villains need… a nemesis. Not just any nemesis will do either, and with this goal in mind we take a step into the rocket launcher that is all of Harley’s spontaneous plans.
I Need A Nemesis... Chest Hair Required
Harley and her crews have been doing their hardest to be taken seriously in Gotham as elite villains. It’s an all-consuming thought for Harley, but it seems like no matter how successfully her plans turn out, they aren’t getting any attention. Gotham has its eyes on who the Caped Crusader is fighting… so Harley puts out an ad for a nemesis. This brings King Shark, voiced by Ron Funches, to her door. He is a tech genius who tries to help get her more views, which leads to my favorite part of the episode.
Finding Mr. Right is hard as the only hit is from some part-time fling, so what does our lovely Harley do? She steals the mother-loving Batmobile! It’s been a minute since a show has caused me to literally laugh out loud, and this scene got me. What’s so perfect is how with Harley, there are no explanations required, these things just happen. It’s unknown to her though that Batman is sending Robin, voiced by Jacob Tremblay, instead of going himself.
Super Special Guest
This episode has so many great moments, the laughs are there for the taking. Watching the Tawny Show unfold is worth the entire episode in itself. The banter between these characters is so fun, and watching the dynamics build between the crew is great. All the voice actors have really outdone themselves with these character translations, and the art team is absolutely great.
I fully look forward to the rest of this series and am fully on board with it being extended/renewed for a second season. It’s clear that DC have hit the nail on the head with a show like this. “Finding Mr Right” has been one of my favorite episodes so far.
If Harley Quinn continues the way it has, then I can’t say anything bad about it. It’s a pleasure to watch and review this show, and we’re only on episode 4. Each instalment has been a gem.
SUBMITTED FOR YOUR APPROVAL… The Twilight Zone , a television series that shows no signs of letting up, is still going strong 60 years since it first debuted on CBS in 1959. Created by the already popular writer Rod Serling, the show became a series with an infinite lifespan. The Twilight Zone is now 60 years young and still has a massive appeal to those who love a bit of twisted, comedic, moralistic and, at times horrifying, science fiction. I have been a fan of this show for many years, from the original to the latest version by Jordan Peele. It was probably in the 1980’s that I first came across this show and I was amazed. Back then, just a teenager, I thought black and white shows were old and ‘fuddy duddy’ (as my kids would say nowadays). That was until my late mam (who was always there when I found my love for various things as a youngster) turned on the tv and an episode of the TZ was showing. I always remember the first episode I saw being "Ti
Article by Paul 'Professor Elemental' Alborough When DC comics laid off so many of their staff the other day, I was devastated*. Another little piece of joy taken away, more fantastic creative people losing their jobs, another big conglomerate stripping creativity for parts then crushing the scrap, and a much reduced chance that my proposed ‘Ambush Bug VS Plastic Man’ crossover mini-series script would ever be approved. It goes without saying, but 2020 is as bad as the Marvel Swimsuit comics from the early 1990s. That’s bad. Social media being what it is, (that is to say a huge purple monster, hell bent on sucking the joy out of life, spreading division and destroying Metropolis,) has given DC comics a bit of a kicking over the last decade or so. Never quite seen to be as hip and cool as Marvel, DC rebooted with their "Rebirth" in 2016, which saw the original comic book line return to its roots. Many said this was just a cynical ploy to shore up its fanbase, and cla
Writer: Jeph Loeb Artist: Tim Sale Review by Eric Lee Welcome to our year long retrospective of Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale's seminal classic Batman story: The Long Halloween. Each retrospective will be released on a monthly basis. We will provide literary analysis and insight on one of the best Batman stories ever. Is The Long Halloween as good as its reputation? Read on to find out! Batman and 'The Godfather' The story starts off with the writer Jeph Loeb homaging the opening to The Godfather. Just like Don Corleone, Bruce Wayne boldly proclaims: "I believe in Gotham City." Bruce Wayne's character arc summed up in one sentence. The sentence is simple, but an important statement that defines Batman's character arc for the whole series. He has just completed his first year as Batman and his promise to rid Gotham of crime may be in his grasp. Bruce is uncharacteristically optimistic in not only his own abilities, but the power of the city
