After watching episode 1 a few more times, I am now seeing the comedic genius of this series. Can episode 2 hold up to the expectations?

Meanwhile in the Legion of Doom!! Bane and Scarecrow are seen having some small coffee talk. The conversations are so off the rails that it is laugh out loud funny.  The guy doing Bane’s voice was pranking Tom Hardy’s performance and it was fantastic! Joker walks in and both clam up as they are trying to hide the fact of the Joker/Harley break up. They mention her dumping him and he loses it! Joker goes on a morning talk show and threatens to blow up Howie Mandel. This gets Harley, Ivy, and Frank in a frenzy. Harley hacks Jokers’ phone and notices that the LoD will be attending a party that evening. Harley and Ivy crash it, only to notice that it is a kid’s bar mitzvah. Not just any kid…the Penguins kid!

While at the party Harley is trying to mix it up with Gotham’s rogue’s gallery. Bane calls Joker to let him know that Harley is there and this gets Joker enraged as he is trying to build his new hideout. She leaves Ivy there and watching Kiteman hit on her is fantastic in itself!

Harley is lewd, crude, and HILARIOUS! Watching her try to prove herself worthy of the respect of the rouges will make you laugh! Lots of quick puns and one-liners.  Joker wants to put an end of this and Ivy gets in the way with some plant help. Joker gets a call from his contractor and has to leave suddenly.  After they exit, Harley and Ivy are talking and now Harley has a new mission. To get into the Legion of Doom!

Episode 2 was funny. It really lightens up the mood, still NOT by any means a kid show. JQ gives it a 8 out of 10!
