[Review] Legends Of Tomorrow Episode 3×01: “Aruba-Con”

written by Kate Spencer

SPOILER WARNINGS ARE IN EFFECT

We’re back for another season of crazy time travel hijinks and extremely loose definitions of the word “science”. Last season, the Legends defeated the Legion Of Doom by visiting a timeline they had already been to and teaming up with their past selves. That caused big old timequakes which landed them in 2017 Los Angeles where dinosaurs roam the Earth.

They broke a perfectly good timeline is what they did.

Merry Christmas!

Wait, what?

I don’t know what direction to take this review, so I’m kind of going to wing it. This episode is odd. I don’t mean odd in its theme, because you see this kind of episode on every show about every year. No, this is more the timing. This is a Christmas episode…in February.

Right away, the opening cracks me up. Mick is narrating the intro this week by being very much himself, calling the viewers “idiots” who haven’t figured out the premise of the show by now and saying that when the Legends try to fix the screwed-up timeline, they screw it up just as bad. I like it; I wish they would do this with the other characters instead of just having them recite the stock intro.

MICK: “Who writes this crap, anyway?”

Heehee!
