Screen Grabs


LIVEWIRE: At least Superman had the smarts to keep his distance. Tsk, tsk. Half the size, half the strength, and apparently, half the brain.
BULLOCK: So she smoked ya.
SUPERGIRL: We put up a fight.
BULLOCK: And lost. I never thought I'd hear myself saying this, but where's the Bat?
BATGIRL: We're handling this.
BULLOCK: Oh, that's reassuring.
IVY: Your hyenas have been watering my plans again.
LIVEWIRE: Pick up the cash and load it in the car. I'm going shopping!
HARLEY: When did we become 'the gang'?
LIVEWIRE: Are you out of your mind?!
PENGUIN: We're closed. Besides, you aren't even old enough to come in here.
SUPERGIRL: Wanna see my I.D.?
PENGUIN: No! I want Batman, Superman, or someone who can do something!
BATGIRL: Like it or not, we're all you've got.
REPORTER (TV): Livewire, Poison Ivy, Harley Quinn. . . So who was responsible for the collar?
BULLOCK (TV): Just a couple of rookies.
BARBARA: Rookies?!
KARA: You bum!
REPORTER: Impressive.
BULLOCK: Well, (He turns to the camera) they show some potential.

Review: The only real plus to this episode was the use of the old theme songs of Batgirl, Harley and Ivy. Other than that, there should have been some sort of plot. If this episode was trying to prove that the girls can be just as good as the guys, then it didn't do it well. I was expecting something a bit more P.C., but instead there is Supergirl and Batgirl sitting on the couch in dressing gowns with their hair up in towels. Yeesh.

Harley was pretty much useless in this episode besides the occasional laugh such as the re-occurring oversized mallet routine, and the one scene where she uses the punch-glove on Supergirl only to have it bounce back and knock Harley out cold. Ivy and Livewire could have been alone and the episode would have been just fine.

The animations wasn't anything worth bragging about, but it was well done at times. Everything was to proportion, and Ivy's animal-plants looked great, but other than that, too much bright electric-lights just bothered the eyes.
