The best thing about season two of "Legends of Tomorrow" is that the showrunners have clearly learnt their lesson from season one. Gone are the boring Hawkgirl/Hawkman duo, and so too is the less-than-impressive Vandal Savage as the season's Big Bad. Their replacements are a lot more interesting: a team-up of Malcolm Merlyn, Eobard Thawn and Damien Darkh as the season's villains, and the arrival of Amaya Jiwe and Nate Heywood to fill the ranks of the Legends.
The gist of the plot is pure comic-book nonsense: the bad guys are after the Spear of Destiny (that is, the spear that pierced the side of Christ) in the hopes that they can rewrite history with its power, while the Legends scurry to keep one step ahead and fix any time aberrations that are left in their wake. But the real fun is in seeing the dynamics of the Legends (particularly with Sara Lance now as team captain; she has a great season) and the villainous trio as they skip throughout history: feudal Japan, Al Capone's Chicago, medieval Camelot, prehistoric times (complete with dinosaur) - even 1970s Hollywood where a young George Lucas is plotting the early stages of Star Wars.
It's a lot of fun, and the less seriously the show takes itself, the better it is. Leaning into its goofy sci-fi premise and adjusting the tone into something a little more lighthearted is the best way to explore these characters and their crazy time-travelling adventures.
It kinda seemed like they couldnt wait to shove in Nate. I mean he was in the first episode then (SPOILERS) He gets his powers in like the second episode, So his character felt sorta rushed, but over wise from that, all in all, its a pretty good season. Still recommend it to most.
