The Legends keep running into people connected to them in the past: younger versions of themselves, ancestors, and, the just-won’t-stay-dead Damian Darhk. That trend continues in “Welcome to the Jungle,” which lands the team in 1967 Viet Nam, during the war. That was dangerous enough on its own, but you know that if the team goes there, it’s worse than it seems.
The title of this episode was making me curious from the first time I saw it. It ended up making a lot of sense, although not quite about what it sounded like.
All the CW/DC Comics shows tend to adjust their introductory voice-overs as needed. It’s a nice little touch I enjoy. This week’s is done by Rip Hunter, and, to me, it worked a bit better than a lot of the others have this season.
I’ll be one of the first to admit that Legends of Tomorrow is an uneven show. They do some weird stuff and have had their share of issues with some episodes. But they are a generally entertaining bunch of lunatics, and when they embrace that, you get a really entertaining episode.
Now that they’ve gotten the season going, we’re back to the voice-over intros for the Legends of Tomorrow. Sara is doing it this week, and talks about how they broke time. She’s a bit sarcastic, if accurate, and it’s an amusing lead-in for the show.
Still not quite done with “What We Did On Our Summer Vacation,” Legends of Tomorrow starts again with another six month flashback. This time it’s Amaya and Nate, being a happy domestic couple and her preparing a special birthday surprise for him. They get some flirting time in the kitchen, but when he runs…
Season Two of Legends of Tomorrow ended with “Aruba,” where the team kept saying they were going to take a vacation.
