DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow Season 3 Blu-ray Review

“DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow” is still an inconsistent show.

“Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the Blu-ray I reviewed in this blog post. The opinions I share are my own.”

In the 18 episode third season (21 if you include the 4 “Crisis On Earth-X episodes included here), White Canary, Heat Wave, Atom, Commander Steel, Firestorm and Vixen return for more adventures across time. Viewers can expect to see stories about the return of Rip Hunter, the Legends trying to repair time anachronisms, the introduction of the Time Bureau and a new character named Ava, a new recruit named Zari (won’t spoil who she is), the loss of a major character and the departure of another, John Constantine, Captain Cold and Wally West, Damien’s daughter Nora, Totems, Sara and Ava’s relationship, and plenty of encounters with famous people such as Elvis, Julius Caesar, P.T. Barnum, and Helen of Troy. Of course, it wouldn’t be much of a comic book series if the Legends didn’t have run-ins with villains like Damien Darhk and his new team, Gorilla Grodd, a Dominator and the big bad of the season- Mallus.

After a rocky first season and a much improved second season, “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow” falters again with a dull season 3. This series continues to be so strange and, frankly, all over the place. Sometimes it feels like a goofy 90s syndicated show and at other times it feels like the most comic booky of the CW DC series. You just never know what you will get week to week with this show amidst the cast changes, time travel adventure of the week, cameos, and story arcs. It’s kind of endearing at how chaotic it is, but it’s also it’s biggest flaw as it feels very slapped together since it’s not based on any one comic source. Basically, this third season really suffers from being overly busy, unfocused, and having a poor villain in Mallus.

The clear highlights of season 3 are the crossovers and guest appearances by fan favorite characters like Captain Cold, John Constantine (always great to see Matt Ryan reprise this role), Jonah Hex and even Wally West. When these characters pop on, it really livens up the show and allows for fun character dynamics. Even if the stories in the episodes they are in aren’t exactly winners, just seeing the characters interact with one another is entertaining in itself.
