Legends of Tomorrow is back and boy are we glad to see our hell raising, unlikely team back on our screens.
The episode started in 2017, where time was broken as per the previous episode, the last in the season just gone. T-Rex’s were running amok and citizens were scared for what was to come!
We got to see Sarah Lance working in a department store. Here she was throwing knifes at things, as she always does. My particular favourite part of these scenes was when she threw the knife at the loser Shop Manager, he had that coming!
We also saw Nathan Heywood as the ‘second favourite’ super hero in Central City – hey he stated that himself, i wouldn’t even rate him at second with Kid Flash & Vibe ruling the roost there!
In Silicon Valley we saw Ray Palmer trying to put across how his shrinking technology was the next big thing – but got shot down with the guy he was talking to declaring, ‘if it’s not on a phone it’s not the next big thing’.
Meanwhile, Mick Rory was soaking up the sun in Aruba, and of course – he was the first one to get in on some drama when Julius Caesar himself came strolling across the beach – time is certainly broken!
Everybody was failing at life since the ‘Legends’ disbanded it was evident that they all wanted to get the band back together, even if it was only 6 months apart. I mean hey, if Take That can get back together, why not the Legends…It only takes a minute, girl!
Back to the story and Rory had called up the Sarah and told them what he had found. Sarah then gathered the team back together to go to Rip Hunter’s Time Bureau to tell them of Rory’s find. Of course the stuck up jackasses that work there couldn’t believe it – and thought they’d been proved right when Mick turned up with a kid dressed as Julius Caesar.
The team really needed to prove a point to Rip (Did they? who care’s what Rip thinks?) and so they stole the Waverider from the Time Bureau (now being used as a training console no less) and went to Aruba Con to find the REAL Julius Caesar.
They did catch him, but in true Legends style, some drama and catastrophe had to happen first. The usual oh no he’s got away, oh yes we’ve caught him again filled up at least 10 minutes of the show and if i’m honest – i did find this very cheesy and a waste of my viewing time. Yes, Legends is lighthearted, but it would be lovely if it wasn’t so darn predictable all the time!
Again we had a bit more of this when the Legends took Julius back to his own time, only for him to steal a book about the Roman Empire and change the future, with Caesar ruling everywhere.
That didn’t last long, and after yet another catastrophe of the Time Bureau’s Agent getting kidnapped, Sarah saving her and then everything being fine and dandy the episode was over.
The episode started solid, and got weaker as it went on. Not to say I didn’t enjoy it because I did, but the predictability of Legends does get a bit tiresome at times.
The most notable moment of the episode for me was the part where Martin and Jefferson were talking, Martin wasn’t sure about coming back to the team but Jefferson feels that its now his home. Martin was willing to give up his dreams of being a grandfather to be with is other family, the legends!
Sidenote here but, there have been rumours recently that Martin is going to leave Legends this series, possibly to do with Victor Garber staring in the new Seth Macfarlane show, The Orville.
So far, so good for Legends of Tomorrow. It didn’t feel as good as previous series, i’m not sure how they can beat the likes of Vandal Savage from Season 1 personally, but i’m very excited to see what unfolds in the upcoming episodes.
With the stars such as Constantine and Kid Flash featuring this series, and i’m sure many more surprises, the series can only get better as it goes on!
