DC's Legends of Tomorrow (S2E05) -- "Compromised" -- 11/10/16



"Compromised" - (8:00-9:00 p.m. ET) (TV-14, V) (HDTV)

REVELATIONS - When the Legends trace a timequake to President Reagan's White House, they are shocked to discover their old enemy Damien Darhk (guest star Neal McDonough) is now a Senior Adviser to Reagan. As the team works to uncover what Darhk has up his devious sleeve, Sara (Caity Lotz) struggles with the choice of getting revenge or helping with the team's larger mission. Thinking that the JSA members could be of help, Amaya (Maisie Richardson-Sellers) and Nate (Nick Zano) break into the JSA and are surprised at what they find. Meanwhile, Stein (Victor Garber) tries to prevent his younger self from creating an even bigger time Abberation. Franz Drameh, Dominic Purcell and Brandon Routh also star. David Geddes directed the episode written by Keto Shimizu & Grainne Godfree (#205). Original airdate 11/10/2016.
An additional 4 episodes were ordered, for a total of 17: http://deadline.com/2016/11/dcs-lege...cw-1201852103/

The 80's clothes, music and vibe was pretty good.

The whole stabbing thing is dumb. So if future Stein felt that, that would mean anyone would feel serious injuries. Break an arm, get in a car crash, etc., you would feel it. Stupid.

Yeah old Stein getting a fresh stab wound was dumb. If anything he should have gotten a new scar only. The age difference between the two Steins is so far that any wound young Stein got would have been fully healed by the time it aged that much to have reached the old Stein.

Really enjoyed this episode and thought it was a lot of fun. Loved the 80's setting and clothing.

- Thought it was kind of weird to see Sara take off her heels and then she looked like she was wearing flats instead in that fight scene.

-Lance Henrickson was awesome as only he can be. Hope that we get to see more of him and this just wasn't a one off.

-Loved the wide angle shot of them all walking together while Danger Zone played. Also loved the scene where Ray and Mick caused that explosion.

-So why didn't Ray just freeze the bomb?

-What is Stein's wife doing in the present while Stein is out adventuring in between time streams? Does he talk to her or anything to let her know he's alive?

Still loved this episode. This is easily my favorite of the DCTV universe shows right now.

Maybe Stein's wife doesn't know he's gone yet? Sort of he can come back to right when he left sort of thing ...

Thought this was a fun episode. Liked the music and setting.

I wish the promos didn't spoil the Ray/Rory scene in the car with Cutting Crew on the radio. It was funny, but probably would have been more amusing had the promos not spoiled it.

I actually think that Dominic Purcell has been better on this show without Wentworth. I love the humor he brings every week.

Caity Lotz looked great in the 1980s.

As I recall, she encouraged him to go.

Lance! Also loved that they stayed faithful to Obsidian's sexuality and worked it into a good reason for why he didn't want to leave.

Anyone notice how much Lance sounds like Old Spock aka Leonard Nimoy? I guess it's just an "old man" voice.

Speaking of Lance Henriksen, he just played in a lame Twilight Zone-ripoff thriller, Monday At 11:01 AM.

Good episode. Loved all the throwbacks to the 80s. I wish time travel series would take better advantage of the times they land in. But I'm sure music considerations get in the way.

Agreed. Purcell is much more entertaining now. Also, I'm not a fan of Wentworth's Captain Cold performance (I know he's coming back).

Nick Zano has finally grown on me. He's fitting into the geek position that all the Arrow-verse shows have (Felicity, Cisco and Winn). More so then Routh did.
