Before DC shows became as popular as they were today, there was the short lived Birds of Prey. Which featured DC heroes Huntress, Batgirl/Oracle, Black Canary, and a more sinister Dr. Harleen Quinzel. It was a show that came before it's time. Or before we knew how to make action sequences look cool without 50,000 jump cuts and a rock/pop song from a "Mix Tape 2002" collection.
