Harley Quinn: Season 1

Harley Quinn: Season 1

Ladies and gentlemen, we found her. She’s snappy, hilarious, a killer with a bat, and unconsciously insane. Today, I’ll be reviewing the first season of Harley Quinn by creators Paul Dini and Bruce Timm.

Now I know I’m 3 years late to the whole craze of Harley Quinn, which was released on the 29th of December 2019 by DC Universe but by no means am I blind to a good series such as this one, I’ll get to it, eventually lol…

And to think, if it weren’t for Twitter I probably would not have even known about this series, I only found out about this series this year when season 3 was trending, so, like one of my favorite YouTube streamers likes to say “You got to keep your ears to the streets” and awarded I was.

So for those that don’t know who Harley Quinn is and why she gets the privilege of getting her show, this is the time for you to listen up and let me fill you in.

Harley Quinn was first known to us in DC Comics as Dr. Harleen Quinzel, who earned a bachelor’s degree in psychology and was the former psychiatrist at Arkham Asylum, where she first met the incredibly insane, handsome, prince of crime and supervillain – The Joker.

One fateful night, the Joker takes Dr. Harleen Quinzel to a chemical plant where he orchestrated and pushed her into a vat of chemicals against her will, which then bleached her skin pale white and drove her insane, resulting in her transformation into Harley Quinn.

Together they are known far and wide as the dynamic power couple of Gotham with many fans across the world loving the character of Harley Quinn more and more over the years, which led us here.

This series has Harley Quinn reach her boiling point when the Joker offers her up to his favorite arch-nemesis Batman and sent to Arkham Asylum one last time.

She vows to get her revenge on Joker by creating her crew and joining the Legion of Doom, essentially becoming one of the greatest villains in the DC Universe with the help of her best friend, Poison Ivy.

This show had me in complete awe from the first 5 minutes, the dark humor and gore of the scenes in the first episode alone were enough to have me binge-watch it within 2 days.

Harley and her crew are completely messed up if not insane yet still lovable and have you cheering for them as anti-heroes if you want to call them that.

We have Dr. Psycho, who was once a part of the Legion of Doom but unfortunately fired for calling a woman the C word.

Clayface who’s a monster made out of clay that aspires to become a great actor and let’s not talk about Sy Borgman, I don’t know whether to feel happy or sad whenever I see him on screen, the man is unpredictable. He needs serious tuning lol…

Not to forget, King Shark, whose character has been savagely reduced from a fearsome villain to a teen IT guru that doesn’t resort to violence unless it’s completely necessary lol…

If I’m being honest, when it is not ever necessary when living in Gotham City? I mean, seriously.

Round of applause to the entire cast for their incredible performances for each character, even though it’s animation, you can hear the realism behind every scene bringing it to life.

I’ve always said DC has the best animation art style with its 2D animation, unlike the recent DC League of SuperPets movie that was done in 3D rendering and was not greatly received by the fans.

However, with 2D animation, DC comes to life, the same with its cast and dark tone and humor throughout the first season of Harley Quinn.

Harley Quinn is for a mature audience, I’d say 18+ years and above as it involves a lot of cursing, dark-themed scenes, violence, and sex.

It’s been a hilarious blast watching this show and I can’t wait to get into seasons 2 and 3 of the series where I will give my overall review on this series as a whole.

I’d love it if you could go and watch it for yourself as I don’t want to go too much into detail and spoil the show for you.

The first season is 8.5 out of 10 ratings.

Paul Dini & Bruce Timm

"I thought it would be fun as a way of taking the edge off of Joker and making him more sadistically whimsical and playful if he had somebody funny in his gang. So I figured you'd have the usual complement of these guys, but I thought, 'What if there's a girl in there and the girl is kind of a wayward soul and snappy and funny and kind of a fool to his Lear? Somebody who's like the Joker's jester.”
