Very fun episode and how they handled Tolkien here was so much better on how they handled Lucas.
Should be interesting where the next few episodes go.
I don't know what happened with the writers in the back half of this season but Legends Of Tomorrow somehow became the fun time travelling superhero show I've been wanting since the beginning. Not to spoil anything but if you've seen the preview for next week's episode, it seems the fun continues!
Yeah, I kind of love the running theme that the "Legends" are complete idiots - and everyone else recognizes this - who bumble their way to success.
Also Matt Letscher has really been great this season. managing to pull off the "Bwahahahah!"-style supervillain of a cartoon but in live action. Replacing the ultra-boring villain of the first season with a bunch of charismatic (middle-aged white male) villains we already know was one of the best ideas that the LOT writers had, in my opinion.
Holy shit, that was actually a damned great hour of TV!
Fuck.... Snart really is darkside, eh? Fucking great having him back on the show, even part time.
It's a stretch that Eobard just lets everyone go, but hey - superhero time travel show. I'll deal.
No powers. Stein still clueless. Love that they can mix shit up like this at will. That's the beauty of wacky comic book/sci-fi premises like this, may as well take advantage of it!
That pull out shot revealing the Wave Rider was a nice twist
This show was starting to lose me, truthfully. Consider my interest renewed. This was a badass season finale!
Ok, color me dumbass: This wasn't the season finale. Oops!
I kind of wish it had been. I don't want everything resolved nice and clean next week. I like the idea of the season ending with our heroes screwed royally.
If I'd gotten my hands on the Spear of Destiny, I'd erase the DC cinematic universe from reality and put the team behind this show in charge of the movies hence forth. Those fucking movies forget that this superhero shit is supposed to be FUN.
For those, like myself, who enjoyed Matt Ryan as Constantine in the show of the same name, he's going to reprise the role for episodes nine and ten of season three of Legends Of Tomorrow.
Weirdly he's also going to be voicing the character for a CW animated show. Yes, a Constantine cartoon. If it's aimed at adults, it could be amazing. If it's aimed at kids, Alan Moore might die just so he can spin in his grave like the inside of a washing machine.
I think all of the CW DC cartoons have been more adult-oriented (or, at least, about the same level as the live-action CW DC shows). I know they've done them for Vixen, and there's an upcoming one for the Ray as well.
Damien Dark is a great villain so I'm happy to see him alive again.
"Okay, who took my watch?" elicited a big laugh from me.
As for Rip, he got what he deserved. Dude would betray his own mother if he had the chance.
I've tried Arrow, The Flash and Supergirl, and this is the only CW superhero show I keep coming back to, just because it's cartoonishly fun and the characters are stupidly likeable rather than just being stupid.
I enjoy all the shows in the CW-DC TV Universe (aka the Arrowverse) but I have to say that this show has gone pretty completely off the wall into comic book craziness and it's so damn great. I really hope that bit at the end of this week's episode pays off later on. It was pretty awesome.
