DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow Season 4 Blu-ray review

Legends

“DC’s Legends of Tomorrow” continues to do its own thing in season four.

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

Atom, Zari, White Canary, Time Bureau agent Ava and Gary, Mona, Commander Steel, Heat Wave, John Constantine and, yes, the Waverider return in the 16 episode fourth season of “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.” In this season, the team visits Woodstock, the Salem Witch Trialls, Paris, New Orleans, and Stonehenge and encounter a Killer unicorn, Jane Austen, Fairy Godmother (Tabitha), a shtriga, Nora Dahrk, Tagumo, Minotaur, Konane, a roach, a dragon, and Astra. Other key stories include Nate’s father Hank, a new member (shapeshifter named Charlie), Garima, members leaving the team, John’s past, and a demon named Neron (the big bad of the season) that is plotting something hellish (pun intended).

“DC’s Legends of Tomorrow” is still the goofy, wild, weird, redheaded stepchild of the CW DC TV series and that’s perfectly OK. After a rough initial start to the show in the debut season, the series is now fully embracing its oddities. It’s hard not get swept up by the strange things on display ala a Professor Stein puppet, Gary’s nipple powers, a character turning into a cat, and so and so forth. It deserves props for being original and not sticking to a formula that many shows get stuck in. You never really know what you’re getting week in and week out as the stories could involve the Time Bureau, timeline changes, fugitives, creatures, meeting historical figures, visiting key moments in time, or what have you.

As unique as the show is at times, it is still all over the place. It often feels like TOO many ideas and characters are being thrown at you. Again, this is what separates it from the crowded comic book show field, but it also feels it needs to be reeled in a bit. It’s all a bit too chaotic at times.

In terms of the highlights here, Matt Ryan’s Constantine continues to be a great addition to the show. After starring in his own short-lived series, I’m glad to see Ryan continuing to play that character elsewhere. Episode wise- “Legends Of To-Meow” has to be the most entertaining of the lot. This new timeline centric story is bonkers (in a good way).
