Legends of Tomorrow


Dancing Queen:
Season 4, Episode 3.
The episode title refers to Elizabeth II herself as mayhem occurs when the Queen with her dancing made her go off-track.
Sara mentioned the song Anarchy In The UK by the Sex Pistols. This episode came on November 5 2018 and eight days earlier on October 28 fellow time travel series Doctor Who had coincidentally Arachnids In The UK as it is a variation in name of that song.
We see the Queen’s corgis. Coincidentally the last of these corgis died recently on October 26 2018, just ten days before this episode came on.
I found out about this more recently after midnight on October 27 on the ABC Radio Nightlife quiz and coincidentally I listened to this quiz on that morning as it had Doctor Who as a category.
This is rather a lacklustre episode especially when Constantine went to see his parents at a time before her mother died when she gave birth to him and that went so terribly.
The Leprechaun Charlie shapeshifted into the Legends before getting stuck in Amaya’s form thanks to Constantine.
The production team has evidently found a way to keep Maisie Richardson-Sellers on the show as Amaya has left the Legends.
Not surprised that Sara decided to put off in telling Nate about Charlie in Amaya’s form and we have to wait for his reaction to this.
That plant made me think of the one in Little Shop of Horrors and gets a variation of a reference with Little Office of Horrors.



Wet Hot American Bummer:
Season 4, Episode 4.
Ava joins the Legends for a mission at a camp in 1995 in this obvious play on horror movies that took place at camp.
Fun when Sara and Ava turned themselves into little girls in their investigation.
Funny where Nora Darhk is now doing.

A reminder here that Charlie was a shapeshifter. This episode came on Australian television on Tuesday November 12 2018 8:30pm and at the same time 10 Peach showed Charmed (2018) 1.5 Other Women which coincidentally also presented a shapeshifter.



Legends of Tomorrow has been renewed for a fifth season.



Lucha de Apuestas:

Season 4, Episode 9.

Not bad episode in which Mona got framed by the Men In Black for letting out Konane although I found the sad Lucha de Apuestas a little bit wanting.

Quite a shocker of an ending with Mona turning into a wolf.



The Getaway:

Season 4, Episode 10.

In an alternative version of history, US President Richard M Nixon (Paul Ganus) had a literal truth bug inside him which prevents him from making his infamous statement that he is not a crook in 1973 in the midst of Watergate and therefore changing the course of history.

The Legends visits 1973 to make sure that Nixon says that he is not a crook.

Former Legends of Tomorrow star Arthur Darvill had met Nixon in Doctor Who: The Impossible Astronaut where he was played by Stuart Milligan.

Darvill had left Legends of Tomorrow at the end of season 3 and therefore did not meet Nixon again in The Getaway a season 4 episode.

The Secret Service Agent who was assigned to Nixon says about informing the Vice President about the situation.

However Nixon says that he was not a crook on November 17 1973 and there was no Vice President at the time as previous Vice President Spiro T Agnew had resigned the month before and his successor Gerald R. Ford would not be sworn in until December 8.

Fun episode that in order to make sure that Nixon says that he is not a crook the Legends kidnap him and put him in an RV with them.

Unlike Doctor Who which treated him somewhat delicately, Legends of Tomorrow makes an absolute fool out of Nixon.

So funny how everyone kept forgetting about Charlie.

Tragic that Hank is killed and Nora is wrongly blamed for it.
