    I must of have been thinking of that tribe that worshiped him but Beebo himself was harmless, wasn't he? I guess all the years of evil dolls has prejudiced me.

    Beebo could actually could be a character. Have him voiced by that one character that was voiced by Paul Reubens. Make Beebo a foul mouth asshole on the group. We Sci Fi fans haven't had a character like that since Rygel on "Farscape." All you really needed is a possessed Beebo doll.

    I liked The Warriors hommage, but I spent the entire episode expecting someone to rattle some bottles while chanting "Legends, come out to play..." :D

    That had me laughing out loud, yeah!

    Overall, the last episode was very entertaining. I just wish I had spent some rewatching the last few episodes before the hiatus. Half of the time with the last two episodes I went 'Right, that happened earlier, now I remember'.

    The show does seem to have completely forgotten anybody but Constantine has powers, and Ray especially doesn't seem to do anything.

    Seriously? A magical-creature theme park? I know the producers said they changed their plans about Hank being a villain because they liked Tom Wilson too much, but this is going a little overboard. Sure, LoT is known for doing insanely goofy things you never thought they'd do, but this feels less like the sublime madness of Voltron Beebo and killer unicorns and more just like a parody of a clumsy retcon.

    Also, the Hindu god's love dust did raise some consent issues for me, even though it only amplified people's existing desires (and even though Ray was meticulous about negotiating consent with Nora).

    The episodes have felt weak since it returned from its break. The show can do crazy goofy fun. But it often misses the mark on most everything else. It terms of ongoing plot lines and real drama. To compensate they are going for a silly tone in almost every scene now. It feels like a self parody.

    Why is Rory still on the show?
    And Charlie? Why bring “her” back and not really do anything with her?

    Yesterday was not one of the stronger nights for DC TV shows. I felt both Legends and Arrow were off.

    Focusing on Legends, I can't stand Mona. Her character is beyond annoying, and in a world where they have access to DC characters major and minor, to focus on this new character is awful. She is a shark jumping character that is like the Cousin Oliver of this show. The show is worse because she is on it.

    Has the show forgotten that Ray is the Atom, or is the effects budget blown so they have to ignore it?

    Ray has become a goofball source of comic relief, when he is supposed to be on Lex Luthor's level when it comes to intelligent.

    The show seems to have lost its direction. I hope they can get it back next season. Maybe change some of the cast and focus on good stories.

    Gotta hand it to Legends: what other show would even try to combine Jane Austen, a Hindu love god, a Bollywood musical number, and a Hawaiian werewolf in one story?

    I do have to wonder if the people of Jane Austen's England c. 1800 would've been so casually accepting of a party including women of African, Chinese, and Iranian heritage. At the very least, they would've probably found them exotic and unusual and been surprised by how good their English was. But then, LoT has been glossing over that sort of thing for some time, even in more racially hostile climates like Elvis's hometown.

    I was laughing had when they revealed it was a Hindu related mystical 'creature' being as I immediately wondered before they did it and said: "No, they AREN'T going to try and ape a Bollywood style song and dance number...are they?"...

    And yes, they went there and did it. However (IMO) it was still rather tame and not quite bombastic enough to be considered something of a real Bollywood musical number (and no, they had enough extras in the scenes to make it respectable, but they just kept the singing/music rather tame (IMO).

    Still, props for 'going there' and attempting it.

    And I agree with others that it would still be nice if they set up a situation where ANOTHER 'Legend' (besides Constantine) is put in a situation where they HAVE to actually USE a super power here and there. hell, they've even pretty much sidelined Gideon the A.I.; and made the Waverider a big clubhouse and bus.

    I like this show for it's "fun" factor. Does not take itself too seriously and I like that. The characters are fun and some of the dialog is just god awful, LOL. But I usually find something to like in each episode.
    "I want hair like Fabio!"
    Caity Lotz is a beautiful woman and a good actress but she needs to find the last person who did her eyebrows and kill them. It looks like she got a brown marker dragged over her eyes by a blind person.

    This was not their strongest episode, but it was still pretty enjoyable. I thought it was pretty cool to see that this one was written and directed by women, since it did focus a lot on the women characters.
    I already knew there was a Bollywood musical number coming up since there have been stories about it going around the internet for quite a while now. It was pretty fun, although I do agree with @Noname Given that it was a bit more subdued than I expected from something like that.
    The stuff with the Hindu god was OK, it will be interesting to see what ends up happening with Zari and Nate now.
    The reveal of what Hank was up to was definitely not what I was expecting, but was it pretty fun, and a nice moment for Nate.

    Racism requires priming.

    You can't be appreciate hating groups that you didn't know existed 5 minutes earlier.
