Harley Quinn: Season 1 (2019)


Season 1
Harley Quinn

Critics Consensus

A strong voice cast and an even stronger grasp of what makes its titular antiheroine so beloved make Harley Quinn a violently delightful -- and surprisingly insightful -- addition to the DC animated universe.

Critic Reviews for Harley Quinn Season 1

All Critics (27) | Top Critics (4)

The series plays like a carnival ride -- something that's fun and exciting the first time, and tiring and a little nausea-inducing by the time you reach the 13th, which happens to be how many episodes were made for the first season.

The cast at large is key to Harley Quinn's success. Harley screeches so much I actually became worried for Cuoco's vocal cords, but the shrieking nonetheless remains essential to Harley's personal development.

Dec 2, 2019 | Full Review…

It uses profoundly silly plots to address serious real-world issues and tells surprisingly sweet stories that are utterly soaked in cartoon gore.

Dec 2, 2019 | Full Review…

There's an edgelord quality to every episode that becomes tiring after a while, but, to the show's credit, Harley Quinn at least approaches its extreme content with a wry smile, if not a knowing wink.

Dec 3, 2019 | Full Review…

I just don't think this show has the power right now to keep audiences coming back week after week for more. For now, the series is a good background show for when you want a laugh while doing other things.

Dec 2, 2019 | Full Review…

Ultimately, Harley Quinn might be an economical watch, but it feels expansive, partially because the supporting cast pops with every shade of personality.

Dec 2, 2019 | Full Review…

The series does a great job in proving something that all us Harley fans have known since her inception: Harley Quinn is much more than her relationship with Joker.

Dec 8, 2019 | Full Review…

Kaley Cuoco is a revelation.

Dec 30, 2019 | Full Review…

Harley Quinn is just a treat. It feels like visiting Gotham from her singularly-psycho perspective, with all the colorful action and doofy humor that entails.

Dec 2, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

It's close to being excessive, but it never quite crosses that line.

Dec 3, 2019 | Full Review…

For DC fans to animation lovers, this is the perfect show for you. Prepare for utter insanity from start to finish, and expect to be shocked and offended at every turn.

Dec 1, 2019 | Full Review…

Harley Quinn has the right combination of satire, character-driven humor and satisfying story elements to make it one of the funniest shows we've seen in 2019.

    My personal favourite show on DCUni. Truly funny and clever. A must-see for adult animation fans.

    Something fresh after Batwoman disaster.

    Love the character and the principle of a more adult version of the cartoon but WOW the narrative behind this is insanely overt. Men bad. Wahmen better in every single way.

    I was looking forward to an R-rated Harley Quinn show. Like Deadpool, the rating would allow the character to be fully realized. But, the final product just seems to be a hot mess that appears it was written by a teenager who is just copying what others have done better in the past. The show starts off really laying on the feminist message that men are dumb egocentric idiots, and women are superior. This is beat into the view from the moment the show starts and becomes almost unbearable during the second episode, not until you get past episode three, does it becomes slightly more tolerable. The humor falls flat as most of the jokes are not funny, and the overuse of ultra-violence is unnecessary and feels out of place. Speaking of the violence, except for a few scenes, most of the action involves men getting killed and mutilated for no reason other than for the sake of women empowerment. The cast does their job, Kelly Cucco brings her energy to the role but nothing new. She doesn't even bother with an accent like all other Harley Quinn's in the past have. This makes me feel like I am watching Penny from BBT, in cosplay. The best part of this show is Poison Ivy. Her friendship with Harley and her relationship with a villain called Kiteman shows that the show does have something it can offer other than the caper of the week non-funny violence fest that we have. DC, if you choose to renew this show for season two, please focus more on the inter-group relationships and less on the Ultra-feminist message and do not go for an R-rating just for the rating. Let the show and story justify the R-rating.

    Absolutely brilliant on all fronts, it's great to see a no-holds barred approach to what just might be the single greatest character to come from the Batman animated series, the juxtaposition of bright and over the top animation, with the gore, violence and language really makes for an absolute stand out from the rest of the mostly brilliant DC Universe... My initial trepidation of Kaley Cuoco's casting, as much as i love her in other roles, was alleviated not even 5 minutes into the first episode, while Tara Strong will always be a hard act to follow, in this iteration, i couldn't imagine anyone other than Kaley in the role, she is absolutely perfect, and lends credibility, and honesty to a script which could have very easily come across as trying too hard to be vulgar, simply for shock value.... One of the best DC animated series in a LONG time, and animated content is a DC strong point already, but Harley Quinn takes things another step further....

    The BEST cartoon ever made. I'm even a Marvel guy and never give DC much attention. Great writing & dialogue. I like both the cheesy superheroes and villains. Harley & Poison Ivy's friendship is awesome. Harley Quinn is the best character in the DC universe. This is the way all superhero shows should be. Go watch!!!
  • Jan 10, 2020
    BY FAR THE FUNNIEST DC SHOW!!!!!!!!!!! Butt... I'm giving it 4 and a half stars because the episodes are at LEAST 90% filler. But Otherwise a great experience!
  • Jan 10, 2020
    Tries to mirror Deadpool's humor, but slightly misses the mark. Increased swearing and realistic voilence is good, but this show's swearing feels jammed into sentences. Otherwise a good animated comic for mature ordiences.
