Harley Quinn s1e6: You’re A Damn Good Cop, Jim Gordon

Air Date: January 3, 2020

Rating: 10/10

After Clayface loses an arm during a heist on Wayne Enterprises, Harley loses face to the League of Doom because of the bad publicity for “leaving a member of the team behind.” Meanwhile, Jim Gordon, after being jilted by Batman, finds a new friend in Clayface’s lost arm.

I really like how they’re playing Gordon in this part of the DC Universe as a desperate man, driven nearly crazy by how little he can actually do in a city full of super-criminals. He’s a man on the edge, but one rendered inept by being just a normal man in a city riddled with so many psychopaths. It’s…kind of hilarious, to say the least.

I like how both stories come together at the end with a conversation between Harley and the Batman himself. It’s a good touch and shows the power of strong writing, even on a show made mostly for laughs.

+10: another great episode that showcases a few of the slightly-more-minor characters
