I’m absolutely loving the DC Daily roundtables (who knew John Barrowman was so funny?), but what is Harley Quinn Smith doing on this show? I’m sure having her dad’s name on her resume helped a lot, but wasn’t there some kind of audition for that spot? She’s boring, and stiff, and doesn’t seem to ever make a pertinent contribution to a discussion. I thought maybe she’d improve as she got more experience, but that doesn’t seem to be happening.
Often it seems like she just read the story, or watched the video, right before filming; so she’d know what the others were talking about, but she doesn’t have anything of substance to say. A lot of the time she seems ignorant of the basic conventions of the medium; you’d think growing up around her dad, she’d have a rudimentary understanding of comics tropes and customs. Hector Navarro is annoying as heck, but at least he understands the material. She’s awful, and she’s not getting any better. Isn’t there anybody else they can find for that end of the couch?
