The Question : Peanut butter sandwiches.

Supergirl : How did... What, do you go through my trash?

The Question : Please. I go through everyone's trash.

Harley Quinn where have you been my whole life? Just started the series on HBO Max and it's just brilliant! I love their depiction of Bane and watching the friendship and banter between Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn. I hope it gets a third season.

From what I understand it's been a huge hit for them. It'll likely move to HBO Max.

Also, tomorrow is the DC Fandome, they're online convention. Expect all sorts of announcements and trailers.

Oh man, Harley Quinn has the best crew ever!

And emotionally broken Commissioner Gordon is hysterical!

Let the bingeing continue! (before the family comes back)

Queen of Fables is one scary character :shock:

It’s all about Dr. Psycho and Bane. I could listen to the former spew insults all day long, and watch the latter get bullied by the other super villains all night. :wub:

I watched the first episode of Harley Quinn tonight based on this thread, and nearly turned it off because of all the profanity. I'm certainly no prude, but when any show (or game, or whatever) has to drop four-letter words every 10 seconds just to show that they're "not made for kids" it just becomes distracting and annoying.

I'll give it a few more episodes because I like the characters.

You’re EXACTLY where I was after the first episode. I hated it. I thought it was a bottom barrel Deadpool knockoff. But I gave it a second chance...and realized I was horribly wrong. In some ways, it’s even better than Deadpool. It’s far more subversive for the world of comic books. By the time they introduce Dr. Psycho in one of the most hilariously awkward intros I’ve ever seen for a supervillain, you’ll be hooked. Trust me.

If it was just a bunch of f-bombs and gruesome cartoonish violence I would have been unimpressed but the comedic timing is on par with Archer and there's a surprising emotional depth to quite a few episodes...There's also an episode with pixilated crotches but that was an essential part of the episode.

I'm sure there's no shortage of things to watch, YK, but stick with a few more. Just not around the little ones...

There will be lots of bits dropping today. I'm going to dump a few odds and ends in here rather than having a hundred threads.

The new Flash suit from the Ezra Miller film. They apparently listened to everybody saying that the red stealth tech armored Flash wasn't great.

Another piece of concept art for the new Miller Flash costume. Someone made an interesting observation about the Batman in the shot.

Spoiler:
That's not Affleck (who will be playing Batman in it), that's Keaton.

Don't worry. The DC convention will be over soon. ;)

A few more tidbits:

~Titans season 3 will move to Gotham, and will include Red Hood, Scarecrow, and Barbara Gordon. Barbara will be taking a page from Batman Beyond, and will be the police commissioner after having retired as Batgirl.

~Black Adam will include Atom Smasher, Doctor Fate, and Hawkman.

DC Universe going comics-only on January 21st.
After months of speculation, DC made the announcement official on Friday morning. All of the series such as Titans, Harley Quinn, Stargirl season 1, and so on will be moving to HBO Max as their new streaming home. All of the comics will continue to reside in their own app which will be rebranded as DC Universe Infinite on Jan. 21, 2021.

The new service will cost $7.99 a month or $74.99 for an annual membership. Those of you that are current members, if you stay on for the transition you will receive a voucher for credit in the DC store. $10 for monthly members and $25 for annual members. The vouchers will be delivered on Feb. 1, 2021.

I don't have time for all this comic TV goodness (and that's AFTER bailing on Arrowverse) -- there are just too many good video games to play. I need to hurry up and retire.

That's the same price as the current service that includes videos. So that's kind of shitty, if you ask me. However, I'm happy that they're keeping the service alive for comic books. The 25 dollars off for annual subscribers is nice too.

Well, I guess come Feb I get to save some money by canceling.
I've only hit the comics a few times and not enough to pay for a subscription. I've been mostly using it for the video stuff. Even if they didn't create anything new I'd probably still stick around for a bit to watch the old shows

That occurred to me, too. They're adding offline access, putting new stuff up earlier, and adding online-only titles (which isn't surprising given the heavy restructuring that's been going on in the comics arm), so at least they're adding some extra value.

What I really want to know is whether HBO Max will also be streaming all of the other, older DC series. I still want to finish the animated universe stuff (Batman: TAS, Superman: TAS, etc.)

I'm OK with paying $7.99 for comics only assuming they add those extra features. It's still cheaper than Marvel Unlimited.

I believe Marvel Unlimited is a little cheaper for the annual subscription. 69.99 it appears. Granted, that's only about 5 bucks less, and they offer a cheaper monthly sub than Marvel (which is odd pricing), but I had hoped they'd reduce the annual sub for the loss of all that video content.

Ditto. I would love to finish my rewatch of the Legion of Superheroes series (an underrated and excellent show, by the way) and the Justice League.

Yeah I was about to come back and post that correction. I didn't think about it because I never do the annual sub because I'm so off and on with my comic reading. I'll go nuts over it for a couple of months then read nothing for a couple, rinse repeat.

You know, the more that I think about it, the more I realize I'm being ridiculous. Back when I used to buy comics, I would routinely spend 20 to 30 bucks a month on comics without fail. 7.99 a month (or 6.50 or so for annual) is still a significant saving. I think the low pricing of digital media has skewed my sense of proportion.
