The Importance of Team on Legends of Tomorrow Season 2

Legends of Tomorrow Season 2
After a rocky start in Season 1, Legends of Tomorrow has started a descent into decent storytelling, yet there still seems to be too many characters to focus on. Even without Rip Hunter, who is destined to return eventually, the writing is too unfocused on the team as a whole rather than any individual character.

As much as we may love the team on Legends of Tomorrow Season 2, the writing continues to show the flaws of Season 1 which was focused far too heavily on Rip and Kendra.

Arrow Review: Invasion! (Season 5 Episode 8)

Arrow Season 5 Episode 8
Arrow delivers its 100th episode with many familiar faces and lots of hallucinations. As it serves as the third installment of the crossover extravaganza, the 100th episode gives us a glimpse of what could have been if Oliver Queen was never the Green Arrow, and so much more.

Arrow Season 5 Episode 8, “Invasion!” was an episode I was looking forward to watching. I’m sure many fans such as myself were a little skeptical of the 100th episode clashing with the crossover this year, but it’s safe to say it worked out pretty well and it had me feeling nostalgic more than ever.

While Quantico Season 2 Episode 8 was still relatively light on answers, maybe more so than expected, it also left us with several revelations, both large and small, while leaving a lot open for the show’s return (on Monday nights!) in January.
