Sorry for the interruption, but we'd really appreciate it if you watched some of our videos!
All videos are written, performed, and edited by the Agony Booth staff, so they're just like the
recaps you know and love, only without all that annoying reading!
An enemy from Barbara Gordon's past returns for revenge, in the worst episode (so far... again!) of an already awful series.
The Huntress meets Darkstrike, a new superhero with the same terrible fashion sense as her, as Birds of Prey recycles plots from four episodes ago.
“In Pinkie Pie’s world, you can never have too much of anything!”
The Huntress goes undercover for some reason, and Sybil talks about the importance of a good intro.
“Oh sweet, sweet freedom of being home alone! Now she can walk around naked just as much as she wants! But then again, Apple Bloom is already naked all the time. Huh. Well, I’m all out of good things to say about being home alone now.”
Dinah meets her mother, the original Black Canary (Lori Loughlin!) in a perfect storm of terrible writing.
“So really, Fluttershy could have potentially committed genocide on all of these small things with her kindness. Isn’t there a Doctor Who episode with that theme?”
“The last time we had a Cutie Mark Crusaders episode, we got a long wished for and well-handled character exploration. This time... we have children going nuts. Joy.”
Solkir's look at the WB's Birds of Prey continues with the very special baby episode!
“Fallon might not be that funny, and he might not get stellar ratings, but he seems to be going where TV is headed: bite-sized chunks of entertainment that can be shared on blogs and social media and hopefully get people interested enough to actually watch the show (or at least DVR it).”
“What Fluttershy has isn’t ordinary stage fright, or performance anxiety. It’s performance paranoia!”
In New Gotham, metahumans are being killed by their own powers, and it turns out to be the work of a self-hating metahuman serial killer. This is the point where it all goes wrong, and we start to see Birds of Prey for what it really is: the worst.
“To this show’s credit, it handles the love triangle plot way better in a twenty-minute episode than a certain billion-dollar Hollywood franchise did in five movies.”
“The big letdown here is that, at this point, they’ve taken an iconic, legendary concept like the Mirror Universe and are primarily using it to hook their characters up with dead lovers.”
Solkir's 13-part look at the WB's short-lived superhero series Birds of Prey continues with "Slick", where the Birds battle an evil metahuman who can turn into water.
“‘Weird Al’ Yankovic is pretty much playing a combination of himself and a male version of Pinkie Pie called ‘Cheese Sandwich’. Sounds like a killer combination to me, if for nothing else than just how random it is.”
