What I’m Watching: Legends of Tomorrow

Legends of Tomorrow: Season 4, Episode 2 “Witch Hunt” (C+)

This show has gone out on a limb a few times in a way that many others wouldn’t, and usually it works okay even if it’s a little silly. I was been impressed with Helen of Troy causing studio wars in Hollywood and tolerated the legends conjuring up Beebo to basically sit on Mallus and destroy him, but this still feels like a little much. The notion of having to send a fairy godmother to hell is one that baffles me, and it didn’t work particularly well here. I guess I’m glad that Constantine offering to be her host was something that she didn’t want to do since that means we won’t have to see her again. More importantly, Sara should deal with the fact that Zari once again completely ignored her directives and opted to go back in time and change history when they knew it wasn’t supposed to change. Of the many comic moments featured in this hour, I preferred Ray describing how peaceful crows were before they killed all the witch hunters to him and Mick being literally turned into swine. If Constantine has to be around, which I still don’t like, at least he’s driving Mick crazy with everything he’s doing. After Nate tried to pay for dinner with a credit card that expired in 1953, his relationship with his dad got seriously repaired when he stepped in to do much-needed damage control for Ava and Gary and show him that he had actually accomplished a whole lot.
