Villainous Coffee Break

Harley Quinn Episode 2 “A High Bar” sets and surpasses just that. We’re definitely off the rails boys and girls with this one. “A High Bar” gives us the direct aftermath of the Harley/Joker breakup. One thing is for sure, Harley Quinn is having issues. You can catch up on the previous episode’s review here. Let’s jump right into this one, shall we?

Friends In Low Places

Harley’s having trouble finding her villainous feet some ground in this episode to be sure. Having broken it off with The Joker, she’s adamant about proving herself to The Legion Of Doom. Harley’s main goal is to prove that she was never just a sidekick, but that she can do bad all by herself. The problem is that in order to do that, she needs to give a bang of an entrance. After a soundboard with Poison Ivy, Harley hacks into the Jokers date book and finds that all of The Legion of Doom will be at a gathering. What better way to make a grand entrance than to crash the party?

Antidote Delivery System

This episode has so many good moments. The humor is delivered ruthlessly and there were many scenes that had me in a laughing fit. Lake Bell and Kaley Cuoco are an absolute blast to watch and hear, as their dynamic is wonderful. Also, seeing Harley call all of the Legion of Doom on their bull is priceless. By far one of the best parts for me. That and Frank the plant, voiced by J.B. Smoove. Honestly, he gets some of the best sequences for humor, and the part where Ivy discovers Kite-Man in her room is priceless.


Harley Quinn Episode 2 was strong and kept the flow going from the first one. I loved the jokes and the storyline. So far this show has my full attention. I love seeing Harley trying to prove herself and I think that she’s doing a good job of figuring herself out without the Joker by her side. This episode gets a 10 out of 10 for me, and I’m sincerely looking forward to the next installment.
