" I know the idea of being transported to another world isn't something that was invented or exclusive to Japanese animation".

Yeah, just off the top of my head I can think of The Wizard of Oz, Alice in Wonderland, and A Princess of Mars (John Carter).

Is anyone showing this outside the U.S. , or is it VPN time?

It's on U.S. Hulu (verified that directly) and (U.S.?) Max, according to the preview guide.

This is probably the best thing to come out of the Suicide Squad property since the James Gunn movie.

It's just a lot of fun and knows what it wants to be, and Tappei knows how to play with Isekai tropes and seems to get enough about the characters to write them accurately.

This show has my new favorite version of Clayface. He and Harley steal the show every time they get scenes.

Its on Hulu in the US, HBO Go in Asia, BS11 (free Sat) and Tokyo MX (Tokyo terrestrial) in Japan, Sky TV in the UK and Warners MAX streaming service pretty much everywhere else bar India.

The show has been surprisingly good so far. It’s just fun seeing the Squad running around kicking butt. Ratcatcher never stood a chance…

I feel like they’re setting up Harley Quinn and this princess to have a Parent Trap type scene at some point.

Not on Sky TV in the UK, at least as far as I have been able to find - it definitely does not show up when searching on Sky itself or their website.

None of the usual suspects (Disney + etc.) seem to have it in the UK, so I hoped someone here knew something...

Will be scheduled later when there is a gap (probably after the summer sport season) like when they showed Harley Quinn.

Giving Clayface tremendous amounts of Theater Kid Energy is probably the most correct anyone has been with the character since its inception. They probably wanted to keep him human because having him not means that he's encroaching on the space held by King Shark and we don't want that, do we? Razz

Props for actuall acknowledging the issue of ammo for the shooters in a fantasy setting (and now Harley suddenly has a gun to make Deadshot feel even worse) though I'm surprised they didn't just try to give him a crossbow or something.

Harley is now a mother! Is "Arthur" meant to be a reference to the Joker movie?

Flag is now in contact with Amanda and under orders to kill his original team but he seems conflicted about it.

Things were going too well so of course their pals from prison get killed by Thinker and Enchantress. I'm also hoping the animation for this episode was more...off because they were saving up for the big fight in the next one.
