Dina Meyer was the greatest thing on Birds of Prey and the one thing that kept me watching. I would love to see her play Oracle again... somehow.

Oh, I hated this series, but one of the few things beautiful about this series was the Joker crippling Barbara. I had chills!

If they kept to the comics, I think the show would have been great. But they changed so much of it that it was unrecognizable and I became bitter...

True...it was just way too out there for me.

I would have loved a Gotham Central TV series. Of course, that's my favourite Batman-related comic series, but I'm sure they would have ruined it anyway.

Omg yes I loooved Gotham Central! That would have made for such an interesting tv show, but true they probably would have messed it up somehow :\

I love and adore Gotham Central. I just got a friend of mine borrow my issues and he's getting addicted to the series. I know Greg Rucka was approached for making the series to TV, but with Birds of Prey as a flop, it never went through. If they kept it like the books, I think it would have been a fantastic series.

I didn't even know it was a possiblity! And your are absolutely right--if done correctly that show would have been amazing. Who knows...maybe they'll try pitching it again sometime.

Lol that show... she was a good actress, though, I did like her. My main problem was the fact that they had Dinah as a whiny teenager. But, hey, Lori Laughlin guest starred once, that was neat. I've missed her from Full House. Great piece, btw, I've always liked the sort of armor-ish look this costume had to it. :)

YES I hated Dinah on that show. And wasn't she like psychic or something? That didn't even make sense...

But yeah the Batgirl costume was great :D

Yes, she had psychic dreams and telekinesis. >> Ugh. And Huntress ran around without a mask on, yet somehow expected her identity to remain a secret.

What good is a mask if you're going to act like yourself anyways? A lot of masked superheroes that I've come across, including Batman, don't really do anything that would protect their identity besides wearing a mask which wouldn't work in the real world. Just look at the 90's Batman cartoon where Batman sounded and acted like a grumpy and angry version of Bruce Wayne.

Ah, good point. XD Still, I dunno, it seems weird to be running around without a mask fighting crime in the age of security cameras; secret identity is pretty much out the window. I didn't hate the show for that, though, I disliked it because of how whiny and young they made Dina. >>

Yeah everything was so random in that show...but now I kinda wanna watch it again just to remember how bad it was, if that makes any sense :P

Aaah Dana Meyer was the BEST part of that show, as Oracle and especially when they had her in the Batgirl suit. The rest was kinda...bleh. It DID get me to read the comics though which are awesome so that's somethign good at least. Shame they show couldn't have been more like them.

Anyway, very nice pic as always. Lovely addition to the group.

True, the Batgirl flashback is the most memorable part of the show for me anyway. And YES! I totally wish they'd been more like the comics. I was just getting into Birds of Prey in high school when they started the show and I was like "aww man this is gonna be awesome" ... but it fell a little short :\

Yeah it kinda fell REALLY short. Oh well, at least we got some Birds of Prey-esque eps of JLU which were a million times better than that show.

I loved Birds of Prey. It's a shame that show only ran one season.
