DC’s Legends of Tomorrow – Season 4 Episode 7

“Hell No, Dolly!” DC’s Legends of Tomorrow dives right into the inner -and outer- Demons of John Constantine as a doll possessing Demon terrorises the crew. It shouldn’t be a surprise at this point but I’m constantly amazed at how this show manages to pull together a collection of ludicrous ideas and weaves them into…

“Witch Hunt” DC’s Legends of Tomorrow takes the team to Salem in 1642 to track down a magical threat This season promises to be as much of a riot as the previous season with magical threats both dangerous and ridiculous challenging the team in hilariously predictable ways. Juggling tone is something this show does particularly…

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow – Season 4 Episode 1

“The Virgin Gary” DC’s Legends of Tomorrow returns for a fourth season with a smaller team and a further shift towards magic based threats. It’s more than safe to say that pretty much anything goes on this show at this point. Last season ended with a giant Furby knock-off fighting a winged Demon and it…
