DC’s Legends of Tomorrow – Season 3 Episode 4

“Phone Home” DC’s Legends of Tomorrow heavily references E.T. when the team embark on a mission to save Ray Palmer from being killed in 1988. When watching this show you have two choices.

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow – Season 3 Episode 3

“Zari” DC’s Legends of Tomorrow brings a new recruit to the team and shows a bleak possible future banning religion and Metahumans. Warped alternate futures are the bread and butter of time travel stories because they’re an easy concept to capture the imagination of the viewer. The hard part is making them engaging enough to…

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow – Season 3 Episode 2

“Freakshow” DC’s Legends of Tomorrow heads back to 1870 on a mission to prove the team’s worth by dealing with an anachronism at P.T. Barnum‘s (Billy Zane) Circus.

“Doomworld” DC’s Legends of Tomorrow heads into an alternate reality after the Legion of Doom use the Spear of Destiny to create the perfect world for them. It turns out that their perfect world isn’t all that different from the regular one. They decide to call 2017 their home time despite having all of history…

“Fellowship of the Spear” DC’s Legends of Tomorrow heads to World War I to recruit J.R.R. Tolkien (Jack Turner) to help them destroy the Spear of Destiny before it falls into the hands of the Legion of Doom. Everything about that summary seems completely ridiculous yet it is swiftly becoming the norm for this show….

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow – Season 2 Episode 14

“Moonshot” DC’s Legends of Tomorrow travels to the 1970s and heads to the moon in search for the final piece of the Spear of Destiny. The members of the Justice Society of America have been popping up separately since their introduction earlier in the season and the results have been middling. Largely they have been…
