DC’s Legends of Tomorrow – Season 2 Episode 9

“Raiders of the Lost Art” DC’s Legends of Tomorrow returns from hiatus and brings back Rip Hunter while the Legion of Doom search for the Spear of Destiny. The question of what happened to Rip Hunter has been hanging over the show since the first episode of the season and the previous episode made it…

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow – Season 2 Episode 8

“The Chicago Way” DC’s Legends of Tomorrow heads to the roaring 20s when Reverse Flash and Damien Darhk create more problems to achieve their goals. One thing that separates this season from last season is that Reverse Flash and Damien Darhk are several orders of magnitude better than Vandal Savage ever was. This episode proves…

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow – Season 2 Episode 7

“Invasion!” DC’s Legends of Tomorrow finishes off the “Invasion!” crossover event with a direct conflict against the Dominators. Many would say that this event isn’t what it was hyped to be and I suppose that’s accurate. It was being billed as a massive crossover where the heroes team up to fight aliens which suggests a…

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow – Season 2 Episode 6

“Outlaw Country” DC’s Legends of Tomorrow goes back to the Old West to help Jonah Hex deal with a problem that could damage the timeline. I’ll preface this by saying that I’m not a fan of Westerns and never have been so there’s only a certain amount of enjoyment I can get from an episode…

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow – Season 2 Episode 5

“Compromised” DC’s Legends of Tomorrow heads back to the 1980s to stop Damien Darhk from stockpiling Nuclear Warheads. Heading back to the 1980s seems problematic at first because the show has already explored that decade and revisiting it could be a sign of running out of ideas but this episode proves that there is plenty…

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow – Season 2 Episode 4

“Abominations” DC’s Legends of Tomorrow takes the team back to 1863 Mississippi in the middle of the American Civil War to deal with Confederate zombies as well as an unhealthy dose of racism. Racism is an issue that this show has largely sidestepped in the past. It has come up here and there but never…

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow – Season 2 Episode 3

“Shogun” DC’s Legends of Tomorrow goes back to Feudal Japan and deals with the fallout of Nate’s encounter with the super power serum. It doesn’t take long at all for Nate’s powers to manifest and his reaction to them reminded me of Barry Allen in the first season of The Flash. He finds the situation…

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow – Season 2 Episode 2

“The Justice Society of America” DC’s Legends of Tomorrow introduces the Justice Society of America while the team struggle to decide who should lead them in Rip’s absence. The Justice Society of America consists of Rex Tyler aka Hourman (Patrick J. Adams), Amaya Jiwe aka Vixen (Maisie Richardson-Sellers) -the grandmother of Mari McCabe seen in…

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow – Season 2 Episode 1

“Out of Time” DC’s Legends of Tomorrow returns for a second season and proves how fun the concept can be now that much of the dead weight has been lost. This show really suffered last season because of the Vandal Savage story. He just wasn’t an interesting villain and the constant references to needing to…

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow – Season 1 Episode 16

“Legendary” DC’s Legends of Tomorrow ends its first season by wrapping up the Vandal Savage story and setting up a new adventure for the team. When the first trailer for this show dropped I was really excited to see it as it looked like an awful lot of fun. A team of time travelling superheroes…
