Review to Birds of Prey, by Marc Bernardin of Entertainment Weekly

Nearly six years after the show premiered on The WB to venomous hatred from comic-book fans, a startling realization rears its ugly head -- Birds of Prey isn't that bad. Yes, it played fast and loose with its origins: New Gotham is completely devoid of its Dark Knight; the Huntress, once a mobster's kid, is now the superpowered daughter of Batman and Catwoman; and Dinah Lance is a psychic teen instead of a tough-as-nails adult. But BOP is an eminently watchable crime-of-the-week diversion, made more so by Ashley Scott's kung-fu spunk as Huntress and Dina Meyer's maturity as the handicapped ex-Batgirl.
