"Legends Of Tomorrow" Season 6 Review: Still As Much Zany Fun As Ever


"Legends Of Tomorrow" has proven over seven seasons that it can deliver on the bat shit craziness we've come to expect from our favorite reluctant superheros. Season 7 will conclude in March 2022 on the CW. In the meantime, lets look back at a fun and inventive season six. 

As always, "LOT" takes it in stride as they have to work around a pandemic. We even have a great promo poster of Bebo (God of War) wearing a mask. I just love this creative team! 

Season 6 opens with Sara being whisked away by aliens. But these arent just any ordinary aliens. They turn out to be Gary and ex- girlfriend Kayla. Needless to say, Gary looks WAY different IRL but is able to mask his true identity thanks to his glasses. 

Astrid is now mortal and having a hard time adjusting to the "normal" life.  Newcomer Spooner takes a while to integrate into the group but I think they finally accomplished it. I like her and Astrid's friendship. Behrad and Nate/Steele dont get much to do this season. 

The big bad this time around is Bishop who wants to destroy the human race and replace it with super warrior clones. This is why he was after Sara. He combined her DNA with that of an alien. Unfortunately he's not very exciting-- as villians go.  

This seasons macguffin is the Fountain of Imperium (which is supposed to protect Earth from aliens). We'll ignore that it's existence contradicts the other DC CW shows. 

Other highlights of the season include:

  1. A visit to a 1950s burger joint where the food is to die for
  2. Constantine sparing with Aleister Crowley who has been vanquished to a portrait of himself
  3. A musical showdown (with an alien) on an X-Factor type show. Zara 2.0 and Constantine take center stage. Also they share a budding romance this season.  
  4. A sitcom with a cute little baby alien
  5. An alien planet full of Avas. 
  6. Wynonna Earp references
  7. The team returns to last season's finale to try to save Sara from abduction. 
  8. An animated episode. Has the show been Disneyfied?
  9. Zari 1.0 shows up for a quick second-- just long enough to kiss Nate
  10. Cosmic bowling where the stakes are the fate of the planet
  11. Mick gives birth to alien babies
  12. Run ins with some famous people including: Amelia Earhart, David Bowe, Spartacus, Fidel Castro, John F Kennedy

In the end, the Legends are a changed group. Sara and Ava are married (ship name Avalance). and "co captains for life". In fact it's their love for each other that causes the Fountain of Imperium to reappear and saves the world from calamity. Will two clones (and some alien DNA mixed in) be able to make a go of it? I hope so.  

 

John is off on a separate mission (Matt Ryan will apparently return next season as a new character)). Mick settles down with Kayla and their alien offspring. Dominic Purcell is also leaving as a full time cast member but might show up from time to time. And another Waverider arrives and blows up our version of the ship trapping them in 1925. Not sure where they'll go in season 6 but, as always, I'm along for the ride. 

Grade: 4 1/2 Monsters (out of ). Sure, most of this show doesnt make any sense. Who cares? I still love all the crazy situations they get in and the quirky characters they encounter. "Legends Of Tomorrow" is a nice contrast to the other more serious DC shows.
