I have been disappointed in a lot of this season of Arrow. I’m finding the split teams story long and drawn out and often poorly written. “Doppleganger” finally shows signs of improvement in this slump.
Flash takes something of a break from the Thinker this week to deal with an entirely different threat in “Enter Flashtime.” It’s a better done story than many of them have been lately and it shows some interesting ideas.
The Legends of Tomorrow are carving out a fun niche in the CW/DC Universe. Not only is it usually the most light-hearted of the shows, it wanders from genre to genre easily enough given the diverse nature of the crew and the time travel element.
Several disclaimers here. This review will not be as spoiler free as most of mine are. And this is not remotely going to be a favorable review for Arrow’s “Collision Course” episode.
A disclaimer: I usually try to make my reviews fairly spoiler free. That won’t be the case with this one. Be warned.
DC’s Legends of Tomorrow has been working more towards being an action comedy than the other shows, and they’re doing a good job of it. “The Curse of the Earth Totem” continues that trend with another mash up kind of episode. Last time was Abba and Groundhog Day. Now, it’s a sort of romantic comedy and pirate adventure.
The Legends do a sot of dual homage to both 70’s supergroup Abba and the movie Groundhog Day in “Here I Go Again.”
