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.
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.”
Beginning their strange timesharing arrangement in Supergirl’s slot, the Legends of Tomorrow make their return from their long winter break. We got a hint when last we saw them about a special fan favorite guest star, and that gets follows up on this episode.
With the crossover finished, the Legends of Tomorrow get back to their usual business of trying to fix time. Personally, I’d like to see a side note at some point of them fixing some of the stuff Barry messed up with his time travel, but that’s me. Anyway, their other recurring issue this season is…

The big crossover, Crisis on Earth X, continues in its third part on Flash. Several of the heroes are in what appears to be a concentration camp, and things are looking grim.
