"Boooooo! They said this was a superhero show!"
I love Sarah, Nate, and Ray dressed up as The Trinity.
I really have to compliment the writers and producers for being willing to let the show go as completely off the rails as it has. Once you have a giant Beebo fighting a demon, there's really no going back.
I love it. Can’t wait for this.
EW.com has an interview with showrunner Phil Klemmer which also includes a few comments from Caity Lotz.
I really like the Ava/Sarah relationship, so I hope they don't totally destroy it. Some challenges can be OK, but I just don't want to see them turn it into nothing but them fighting all the time.
They also have a second article up about the big Bollywood musical number in the April 15th episode, "Seance and Sensibility".
The Legends marketing has outdone themselves this time.
Hmm... Ironic that in what is nominally a superhero show, the only people sporting masks, colorful costumes, and secret identities were guest-star luchadores. But it's somehow not surprising that LoT worked luchadores into the show, and acknowledged their important role in Mexican culture and even politics.
When did Mick become such a company man, just blindly following orders to bring Konane in? That seems unlike him. Although I loved seeing him discover the impact his book had on Mona.
And how did they restore Gary's memory? Is this the first mention of that effect being reversible? And how did he know to go back to the Bureau if he'd forgotten who he was?
So... Mona's a werewolf. Or something akin to one. I guess the question is, did that just happen as a consequence of Konane scratching her, infecting her with a form of lycanthropy? Or has she always been a lycanthrope but never got angry enough to trigger it until now? The latter would explain why she and Konane were so drawn to each other, which is why I'm not ready to assume she just got infected. Plus, as far as I can tell from a quick online investigation of Kaupe lore, there's nothing about them being infectious. But then, the myths say that Kaupe was a mythical/divine dog that ate people, so at least in the show's universe, the myths are evidently inaccurate.
Since they made a whole point of Mona being scratched by the Kaupe, I'm guessing they're going with the infectious thing.
If Bortas and Klyden can smoke, Constantine should be able to smoke.
I still think Constantine seems out of place amongst the Legends crew anyway, IMO. Not too surprising that he's somewhat neutered though they appear to be working the smoking thing into a recurring gag.
Kind of an underwhelming premiere to one of the better DC shows. But I guess it was really the 9th episode, and maybe they didn't know they were heading into a long break after episode 8. I really hope Mona isn't going to become a major character. She's bringing the show down a bit.
Not a fan of Mona. I picked up my phone and checked out the threads here while she was having her talks in the woods with him.
"WHAT? No Redford?! No Sundance. No indy film. No artful nudity. We have to fix this!"
I just love how Mick's mind works.
That was pretty fun, the stuff with the truth bug was especially funny.
So I wonder if Mona will be a permanent addition to the team or just a one season character?
I'm sad to lose Hank, he was a pretty good villain, and he gave us a lot of great stuff for Nate to deal with.
They seem to be pretty good about not dragging stuff out forever, so hopefully they'll figure out pretty quickly that Nora didn't kill Hank.
I'm not convinced Hank is gone for good. After all, this is a series that revolves around both time travel and magic. So they've got options.
That is true.
Agreed. What kind of buttheads would kill off Biff?
By the way, I love it that this goofy, fanciful show about unicorns and fairy godmothers gave us one of the most realistic portrayals of computer hacking I've ever seen on TV -- rather than the usual trope of guessing a password that's implausibly personal and easy to guess, or doing some fancy technical trickery involving typing really fast on two keyboards at once, Gary just did a password reset and had Nate extract Hank's personal information to answer the security questions.
Yeah, I was surprised they actually went with something that simple, but it did also give us that nice bonding moment between Nick and Hank, so from a real world perspective it was about more than just getting into his computer.
Hank was originally meant to be this season's big bad, but the producers liked actor Tom Wilson too much to make him evil.
Which is why I suspect Hank's death won't be permanent. If they like him that much, it suggests they want to keep him around.
