Now Gotham's Undercover Superhero Batman has disappeared leaving behind a daughter from his long-time love Catwoman. Her name is Helena the mysterious superhero known as "The Huntress". She has teamed up with the paralyzed hero "Batgirl" together they meet up with their next teammate Dinah Lance. Dinah is a telepath and psychic who had terrifying dreams about Batgirl's brutal accident. They must learn how to work together and become not only a team of superheroes but also a family.Written by
The character of Dinah was originally intended to be a revision of the comic book character Black Canary. Outcry from comic book fans contributed to the character being retooled to become the Canary's daughter instead (with the Black Canary herself making an appearance in one episode). See more »
I mean, really, he is the perfect child for the busy career woman: Low maintenance. No sleep deprivation. They don't live long enough to borrow the car.

Although she is included in the opening credits of each episode, Mia Sara only appeared in about 1/3 of the episodes that were broadcast. See more »
The first episode was originally broadcast in a 70-minute timeslot. A reedited version designed to fit a 60-minute timeslot was most likely created for syndication. See more »
This show has the kind of plot structure that works best for addicting television shows. Like "X-files," "Buffy" and "Angel," the shows mostly focus on a plot that begins and is resolved within the one hour. However, many of these plots lend themselves to the throughplot, a second plot that lasts entire seasons and is basically the bad guy's plan to take over the town. So there's a bit of serial, but not so much that you can't come in mid-season. I don't know what confused the other commentator. The introduction makes everything very clear. There are humans and meta-humans. Meta-humans have '"X" Men' type qualities. Two of our fighting trio are meta-human. Batgirl, who is called "Oracle" now, is just a human.
It's great to see Mia Sara working again, this time as the "bad guy." She's obviously having a lot of fun playing the successor to the Joker and she's a lot of fun to watch. And you gotta give kudos to the network for having an inter-racial romance.
The action scenes are very well done. The wires aren't super obvious, the kicks are quick. I watch very little television as feature films are my main addiction, but this one is getting added to my personal faves. I also recommend The Dead Zone, Gilmore Girls and Alias.
