THE FANDOM ZONE 014: "Birds of Prey" is Up!
"I resent that! I'm as broody and romantically self-destructive as the next girl!"
-- Barbara Gordon to Helena Kyle, Birds of Prey: "Pilot"
You guessed it, Karen Lindsay and I are back with another new episode of The Fandom Zone Podcast! Ah, but this time, we also have a special guest -- none other than my Next Stop Everywhere: The Doctor Who Podcast co-host, Jesse Jackson!
This week's reviews of comics on television include:
Birds of Prey 1x01 -- "Pilot"
Daredevil 1x11 -- "The Path of the Righteous"
We talk about things like Jesse's long podcast history with Karen, the upcoming TV adaptation of Neil Gaiman's American Gods, the backstory war between Batman and The Joker, the vocal greatness of Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill, my shared TitanTalk APA history with Jesse, the potential of Birds of Prey, the unexpected appearance of Jesse Pinkman from Breaking Bad, Dinah as the Wesley Crusher of Birds of Prey, the difference in Dinah's TV powers vs. the comics, the first mention of DC Comics' metahumans, Huntress' personality difference after being raised only by Catwoman, the cost of superhero equipment, the Arkham Asylum money booth, Mia Sara as the Big Bad Harley Quinn, comparing Birds of Prey and Gotham, Leland Owlsley wanting everyone to know he was almost poisoned, Jesse's slightly-dated Al Haig reference, Karen's possible on-air electrocution, Karen Page's monkey balloon, Vincent D'Onofrio in Men in Black and Full Metal Jacket, the return of Father Latte, Melvin Potter the Gladiator, the private basements of bad guys, the awesomeness of Karen Page saving herself, and more!
