Episode notes

Film still from 'Birds of Prey' with the whole crew walking

Birds of Prey

We have a truly FANTABULOUS episode this week. Joelle, Drea, and Alonso are joined by the “overly qualified guest” writer Sarah Kuhn (Shadow of the Batgirl, Heroine Complex) to discuss Birds of Prey. Sarah regails us with a very thoughtful examination of the Cassandra Cain character and discusses how she appreciates Cassandra’s representation in Birds of Prey. Plus, the crew discusses the Oscars as an institution. And, as always, staff picks.

In news, a TV series about filmmaker Alice Guy is in the works and Rick Moranis comes out of retirement.

Staff Picks:

Alonso – It Happened on 5th Avenue
Drea – Olympic Dreams
Joelle – Who Killed Malcolm X?
Sarah – The Farewell
