From the creators of Smallville, the Batman myth takes an unexpected turn in this action-adventure series about a trio of beautiful and relentless heroines determined to carry on Batman's fight for justice against the ruthless criminals of New Gotham City. Years have passed since Batman commanded the streets of New Gotham, leaving the high-tech crimefighting to the stunning Birds of Prey: Barbara Gordon (Dina Meyer — Saw films, Starship Troopers), formerly known as Batgirl and the daughter of Commissioner Gordon; Helena (Ashley Scott — Jericho, Dark Angel), or the Huntress, the secret offspring of Batman and Catwoman; and Dinah (Rachel Skarsten — Virginia's Run), an innocent teen with developing metahuman powers. Also starring Shemar Moore (Criminal Minds), Ian Abercrombie (The Clone Wars, Seinfeld) and Mia Sara (Timecop, Ferris Bueller's Day Off), Birds of Prey brings the legendary saga from DC Comics to life, right here on iTunes.

Batman's Little Girl is All Grown Up.
Birds of Prey, takes the character of Huntress, the daughter of Batman and Catwoman (neither two appear in a main role) and gives it a modern reworking. The show is slightly dark and edgy, but the costumes are a joke and look awful. In all round way, its no Dark Knight or Batman (Original Series) but the show makes an entertainig watch. Buy if a real comic book/Batman fan, but other wise you won't care.
A better spin-off than most
Most spin-offs aren't worth the time if day, but here's one that has genuine charm and appeal.
The source material is all there with frequent references to Batman stories (The Killing Joke) as well as flashbacks. The effects are impressive for a show from 2002.
Also Mia Sara as Harley Quinn is a special treat.
If you liked The Cape you'll be doubly disappointed as (for some unknown reason) this was also cancelled after only one season!
I think it actually made my eyes bleed
I will start by admitting this review is based on watching the pilot episode, and nothing else.
this could be one of the worst D.C. comics to T.V. shows ever.
everything felt forced.
I have watched programs that are so bad, the are good, but "Birds of prey" only fulfilled the first half of that statment, this program is just wrong, wrong, wrong.
47 minutes I'll never get back.
hope this helps. ;-)
