*Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the Blu-ray. I reviewed in this Blog Post. The opinions I share are my own.*
After that brief disclaimer, you might be wondering why I am the writer covering the Blu-ray release of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow Season Four when I am not our regular Legends writer. The reason for this is that this particular season holds very special significance for me. While I am a huge DC fan, my pull list before my move had only indie and DC series in it, I did not get pulled into The CW DC shows until recently. I briefly watched Supergirl, after it had been out for two seasons, and have been keeping up to date with Black Lightning, but that was really it. I had continued to hear things about Legends and my parents actually thought I might like it. It took until this season for me to actually check it out.
I have never done this with a show before, but when saw the trailer for episode four, Wet Hot American Bummer, I decided that if any episode was going to be the one for me it would be this one. I used to go to summer camp and not only was this camp, but there was going to be some sort of magical happening. I hunkered down and started cracking up. I was definitely hooked and after that episode I went all the way back to the beginning and binged it all. I did admittedly skip a crossover that I had already seen when I used to watch Supergirl, but I watched everything else. I was so fixated that I told my now fiancee that she had to watch the series too. We both worked to get caught up and even bought Funkos and other bits of memorabilia. The Atom is even going to be part of a centerpiece at our wedding and if that isn’t a ringing endorsement for why you need to watch this season of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, even if you’ve never watched the show before, I don’t know what is.
If you do jump into this season you can either binge the series or do some online reading up to get an idea of what to expect. As a brief intro season four is set after the Legends have defeated the demon Mallus with some intense cuddling and now they have learned that magic is messing with the timeline. With the help of Constantine and Ava Sharpe’s Time Bureau, they will have to save the world from magical creatures from myths, legends, and fairytales, some of which aren’t exactly what you thought they were. Keep in mind unicorns are dangerous, fairy godmothers sometimes have the hots for demons, and Ray Palmer can be made to seem evil. This entire season is not only just a lot of fun, but the inclusion of magic adds to the story. We also get an actor back in a new role, which is both intriguing and delightful. The Blu-ray includes a fantastic gag reel, so much goofy dancing and Gary bleeped curse words, deleted scenes, and two featurettes. The featurettes are focused on post production and on how the stories in this series are created. You can get your copy of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow Season Four on Blu-ray today.
