Yup, none of them are super powered. The original Black Canary was, but given that her main features was that a) she was a brunette that wore a blond wig as a disguise b) fishnet stockings c) sonic scream, could it be any more sexist?Originally posted by Garrett
I think all of the heroes are not rely super powered
raigraphixs said:So did anyone actually see it back in 2002/03 ?.
Only 13 episodes were made before it was canned. Looks like a b-movie. Anyone know if its ever coming out on dvd?. If Bats and Catwomen have a daughter i wanna see her.
Garrett said:Although nothing great I though the series better than Mutant X which the first season was really dire, yet Birds of Prey was not given time to spred its wings and for some reason must have been canceled really early hence the tying up of the story lines by episode 13.
From the creators of the CW hit Smallville, Birds of Prey was produced in 2002 for the WB and is loosely based on the DC Comics series with the same name. The hit show brought in 7.6 million viewers each week and was the largest audience in the 18-34 demographic for the network at that time.
Unfortunately it will be pan & scan 4:3 and not the widescreen OAR as aired according to Wiki ...Birds of Prey: The Complete Series will be on DVD for the first time on July 29.
13 episodes from the series plus all-new bonus features in a 4-disc collection. And never-before-seen special features such as: Gotham Girls S1-3 - An animated series of shorts starring the Birds of Prey characters.
As its a Warner Bros 'R1' TV series DVD, it will most certainly be multi-region coded so playable on R2 players.Birds of Prey will be released on Region 1 DVD on July 15, 2008, Possibly as a tie-in to The Dark Knight. The four-disc collection will include all 13 episodes as well as the entire Flash-animated series Gotham Girls. Fans, however are criticizing Warner Bros for releasing it in 4:3, mostly due to the fact the show aired in a letterbox format.

Birds of Prey - Studio Sends Over Package Art, Closer Release Date for The Complete Series DVDs! ***Updated***
Get this 4-disc set a few days before The Dark Knight hits theaters
Posted by David Lambert
After waiting all this time, fans have been thrilled about yesterday's studio press release from Warner about the July 29th release of Birds of Prey - The Complete Series. But what if you could get it two weeks sooner?
A short time ago the studio sent out an "e-announcement" to retailers and press, showing off the first look at the package art for this release. The text that grabbed our attention was the part that said "streets 3 days before The Dark Knight hits theaters!" (seen below). Glancing down a bit, the announcement shows a July 15th release date for this set, a date confirmed by a separate listing at Warner's password-protected press site. We just called Warner, and they confirmed that the real release date IS July 15th for this title. AND we also got a high-resolution look at the package, too! See it below the e-announce clip.
So enjoy this release 2 weeks earlier, and enjoy your first look at the box. Oh, and ignore the "order due date" part; that's for retailers (to know when they have to get orders in with the studio, if they want those copies on shelves in time for street date). Nothing for consumers to worry about!
Update: Two things about the release that won't please fans; the unaired pilot won't be part of the set, and Warner's press site currently lists this as Full Screen (1.33:1). We have an email in to the studio to confirm the aspect ratio since the show was shot in widescreen, and aired overseas that way. It could be an error with the listing since they also list the audio as being mono, and that's clearly a mistake (likely Dolby Surround). We'll post a separate news item if the the aspect ratio changes.
Birds of Prey - Studio Updates Us About the DVD Set's Aspect Ratio & Unaired Pilot
In store - at long last! - on July 15th
Posted by David Lambert
In our most recent report about Warner's July 15th DVD release of Birds of Prey - The Complete Series, we added an update that said "the unaired pilot won't be part of the set, and Warner's press site currently lists this as Full Screen (1.33:1)". We said at the time we had an inquiry into the studio about these matters, and they have responded.
First, the great news: a Warner spokeperson informs us that "the unaired pilot will in fact be on the Birds of Prey DVD"! That's terrific news. For those of you not in-the-know about it, the unaired pilot was an alternate version that had Sherilyn Fenn (Twin Peaks) in the role of "Dr. Harleen Quinzel" (a.k.a. "Harley Quinn"). Fenn's scenes were later reshot with Mia Sara (Ferris Bueller's Day Off). There were alternate scenes with Barbara Gordon (Dina Meyer, Starship Troopers) ending a relationship, rather than starting it, an opening sequence which was completely reworked for the aired version, and other changes to scenes, score and sound effects. So now everyone will have a chance to sample that version, which is great!
Now for the update about the video format, which may or may not be considered "good news" (depending, ironically, on your personal point of view). The aspect ratio was initially reported as being "Full Screen" (1.33:1) in the studio's original announcement. We've learned that this is both right, and wrong, in a fashion. The studio has informed us that these episodes will be in a matted widescreen video format...essentially 1.33:1, but with black bars on top and bottom to simulate a widescreen broadcast appearance.
For those of you in-the-know about these technical terms, this is the so-called "letterbox widescreen" format, rather than the superious "anamorphic widescreen" (which provides better resolution). For more info about the differences, you can see examples here.
