Legends of Tomorrow:
The Complete Fourth Season review by Bobby Blakey
“Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the Blu-ray I reviewed in this Blog Post. The opinions I share are my own.”
I will be honest, when they decided to spin this show out of the rest of the Arrow and Flash series I wasn’t sure how well it was going to hold up. Thankfully they found their fun footing and the show continues to deliver. Now fans can bring the fourth chapter home with the Legends of Tomorrow: The Complete Fourth Season.
Legends of Tomorrow follows a disparate group of both heroes and villains after seeing what the future holds to confront a threat which not only puts the world at stake, but all of time itself. As the show has gone on it has a somewhat revolving door of heroes joining the team with some regulars and others just making cameos. In the third season after defeating the Legion of Doom, the Legends face a new threat created by their actions. By revisiting a moment in time that they had already participated in, they’ve essentially fractured the timeline and created anachronisms all across time!
In Season Four, after defeating the demon Mallus by cuddling him to death last season, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow join John Constantine and Ava Sharpe’s Time Bureau to save their world – and their legacy – from magical creatures from myths, fairytales and legends who have escaped and infected history. As the Legends time-travel across historical events and encounter famous figures, they now have to contend with an added shot of magical craziness! This season they seemed to veer away from too many cameo characters and instead focus on the core team and inner issues. The magical aspect offered up some fun along with the time travel to make for another entertaining season.
The members of the Legends all do a great job as well getting plenty of time for each to stretch their legs in their own arcs most notably Brandon Routh in the second half of the season getting to do something completely new. I’m still not a fan of some of the looks to the characters, but interestingly enough this season didn’t jump into official gear all that often. One of the things I have come to really enjoy with this series is that while it has heavy moments it keeps things light hearted more often than not. Love it or hate it this show makes sure to stick to the comic book universe and offers up so many great pop culture and comic moments that will have fans smiling ear to ear.
This collection not only includes all 16 episodes of the season, but also bonus content including a gag reel, featurettes and more taking fans further behind the series. Join the time traveling hunt with Legends of Tomorrow: The Complete Fourth Season when it hits Blu-ray and DVD on September 24th from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment.
