Quote:I would dearly love to stop watching this show. Really, I would.
Quote:But it's such a train wreck I can't take my eyes off it. A weekly s#!tstorm of terrible plotting and writing.
Quote:And this latest episode has to be a new low point for the show. They've spent FIFTEEN EPISODES on the quest for the spear of destiny, building the artefact up as this powerful device that the Legion must never get into their possession and the Legends must protect at all costs because it can 'reshape reality'. FIFTEEN EPISODES, mind you.
Quote:So in the 16th episode the Legion have seemingly won. The Legends are trapped in an alternate reality, and the spear destroyed. Checkmate, you'd think? Not a bit of it. Because Sara figures out how to beat the Legion and put the world to rights: Time Travel.
Quote:That's right. You heard me. Time travel.
Quote:Just...travel back in time to before the Legion won and stop them winning. Duh.
That threw me too as I could have sworn that they made a big deal that the effects of the spear changing reality could NOT be undone by time travel. Do I have that wrong?
Now for my confession: Other than the time travel solution, I loved the shear campiness of the episode. From Rip baking cakes, to the reverse paralysis ray, to the Ray being the janitor, to the big Darth Vader Helmet HQ. And I got a chuckle from the rogues interacting and plotting against each other.
The episode appealed to my 9 year old Super Friends watching self.
Totally a Guilty Pleasure on my part.
I agree it was a lot of fun if you don't take it at all seriously.
I loved how Jax tortured Stein so that he hates him. And that he hasn't been turned back to normal.
