There have been many versions of Harley Quinn in her nearly 30-year character history. But I'd bet my lifelong nerdom membership that the best version currently resides on her own animated series on HBO Max.
I'll be completely honest, most versions of Harley Quinn after the original (which debuted on Batman: The Animated Series in 1992) have been kind of, well, problematic for me...
Now don't get me wrong, the Margot Robbie (IRL) version of Harley Quinn comes really, really close to winning me back over...
Speaking of joy, Kaley Cuoco brings not only joy but hilarity, humanity, and a whole lot of ultra-violence and foul language to her very animated turn as Ms. Harleen Quinzel on HBO Max.
Relationships are at the dark, dark heart of Harley Quinn. The series starts with HQ getting dumped by some clown (no need to say his name, let's just call him Mr. J.)...
As for that crew that Harley puts together, well, it's a motley one for sure, whose roster includes...
But Harley has some competition in Gotham. The entire rogues gallery is there too; all of the Batman baddies from Two-Face and Riddler to The Penguin and Mr. Freeze. And then there's Bane...
Oh, yeah. And then there's Kite Man.
As a special treat for all you Law & Order: SVU fans out there, Chris Meloni voices Gotham City's frantic police commissioner, Jim Gordon.
And yes, Batman's in it too!
Honestly, if you're looking for something that's brightdark (which I guess would be the other side of the grimdark coin), Harley Quinn on HBO Max is it.
