Who will stand up to villains now that a heartbroken Dark Knight has mysteriously vanished? Never fear, New Gothamites, a trio of champions is ready to take wing-- and Helena, the daughter of Batman and Catwoman, is among them. She calls herself Huntress and crime is her prey. Teenaged Dinah is the youngest of the group, learning as she goes and gifted in clairvoyance. And overseeing the awesome threesome's high-tech nerve center is Batgirl. Left wheelchair-bound by The Joker, she has reinvented herself as Oracle, the team's cyber expert.

I really loved this series. Helena, Huntress, is shown as having some cat-like powers: speed, vision, etc. The thing that I liked most about the show is that Barbara Gordon, the wheelchair-bound Oracle (formerly Batgirl), is a capable, smart, independent woman who has a romance and sexual relationship. She is not portrayed as sexless or rendered undesirable or helpless by her disability.

If you're looking for new DC fare, this show might fit the bill.

I thoroughly enjoyed this series. There are more well done action series for sure - but I enjoyed this as much as I enjoyed Alias.

Poor dialogue, weak villains, and HORRIBLE fight sequences. I would have given up by episode 3 if it weren't for the amazingly beautiful Dina Meyer as Oracle. I will say that the last 2 episodes were well done and a good conclusion.

Better than I expected. There's not enough slinky fetish costume for most teenage boys (of any age), and the martial arts is repetative. But the relationships are interesting, and the good guys are beautiful. There's a lot of P.C. casting,.. except that those with ugly facial deformity are ALWAYS 'evil' (?),.. and its O.K. to smash and bash them. Kind of tough for real live victims of ugly deformation!

Just another great example of a good show that never had a chance to find an audience. I watched this when it first aired and was wonderfully surprised to find it here! I would highly recommend this to fans of the action hero genre. As this show is based on a Gotham City without a Batman.

In the future, long after the Batman has driven himself into exile, his legacy lives on in the form of the Birds of Prey--Black Canary, Oracle, and the Huntress.
