Legends of Tomorrow Season 5 Episode 15

Broadly speaking, there are three types of Legends of Tomorrow episodes. There are the gag episodes, where the entire thing is built around one bit. There are the experimental episodes, with countless examples, the most recent being last week’s Interdimensional Cable episode.

And there are the plot episodes, that move the season’s serialized story along. The first batch are hit or miss depending on how the one bit of the episode lands, but they generally hit. The second batch are what makes Legends Legends, something even the cast agrees with — even when they don’t work, they’re still interesting, and they almost always work spectacularly.

The plot episodes are where the show has traditionally struggled, because the strengths of the show are the characters and relationships they’ve formed, and historically, plot episodes on

Legends of Tomorrow: Nick Zano and Nate Heywood Form New Bonds

Legends of Tomorrow: Nick Zano and Nate Heywood Form New Bonds
Nick Zano claims he’s never shotgunned a beer before.

On its face, this feels ridiculous. If there’s any scripted show on television right now that seems like the cast engages in some periodic competitive drinking behind the scenes, it’s Legends of Tomorrow. But talk to him about it, as we did ahead of “Freaks and Greeks,” the next episode in the show’s still-wonderful fifth season, and it actually makes more sense. He hasn’t shotgunned a beer because he comes from a line of professional drinkers. “Ever go to a bar in New Jersey at 10:00 Am to 2:00 Pm?” he asks? “[His grandmother] was your bartender.”

So while Zano’s deft handling of a keyring and a can of Noonan’s Lite in the episode is out of the ordinary, his handling of his character on the show, Nate Heywood, the adventure professor who can turn to steel,

Sci Fi Fidelity Podcast: Genre Actors Over 70

Michael Ahr Dave Vitagliano Sep 22, 2019

Our genre television podcast hosts choose their favorite “elder elite” actors still working in TV and share listener choices.

We have nothing but respect for actors who choose to continue in their profession into their 70s and beyond, and there are many who have graced science fiction and supernatural television with their proven talents. In many cases, these actors have long and illustrious careers in film and on stage as well, but we always appreciate when they show up as wise mentors or grizzled villains or other similar roles in the genre shows that we love. The latest Sci Fi Fidelity discussion topic podcast entitled “Elder Elite” covers six of our favorite examples and shares listener contributions as well.

The criteria we used for qualification was that the actor in question must be 70 or older in 2019 and must have worked on a science fiction, fantasy,

Legends of Tomorrow Season 4 Episode 14 Review: Nip/Stuck

Legends of Tomorrow has a perfectly ho-hum 45 minutes capped off by 10 minutes of pure, joyous insanity.

This Legends of Tomorrow review contains spoilers.

Legends of Tomorrow Season 4 Episode 14: Nip/Stuck

Everything about "Nip/Stuck" was down the middle Legends of Tomorrow fun. A bottle episode that shows character growth, some workplace comedy, light time travel nonsense, Matt Ryan in a terrible wig. All good! Nothing spectacular, but the show's been running hot lately and meeting-but-not-exceeding the very high bar you set yourself is still doing great work! And then with about five minutes left in the episode everything went suddenly, gloriously right.

When Brandon Routh tongue kissing Mama Cosmo from Fairly Oddparents is like, the third most ridiculous thing to happen in the episode...I don't know how they do it, man. This is a show that ended last season with a superhero team using Captain Planet rings to

The 30 Best TV Episodes of 2018, Ranked

  • Indiewire
In an age when people are far too used to blasting through entire seasons (or series) in a weekend, it’s a pleasure to celebrate the concept of the great episode: a concise bite of storytelling that functions as its own narrative as well as a part of a larger whole.

Last year’s list was 25 episodes, but expanding this list to 30 became necessary given the incredible scope of television to be considered — across all platforms, there was too much to celebrate. Some of the series below represent the year’s most significant programs, while others may not have made IndieWire’s best-of lists, but deserved recognition for what they achieved within individual installments. From soul-deep despair to giggle-inducing joy, the range of TV in 2018 covered all corners of the human existence.

Film Review: ‘Silencio’

  • Variety
Film Review: ‘Silencio’
It’s become a reigning pulp cliché of our era that practically every dramatic protagonist must have a dead or endangered child motivating them. It’s the fallback device to provide “depth” to a troubled character, or to explain why they might bother saving the world or doing anything else for the greater good. Lorena Villarreal’s “Silencio” takes that lazy writer’s emotional choke-chain to ridiculous extremes, as eventually here it seems there’s almost no central figure who doesn’t have a child’s life to rescue or avenge. This turgid fantasy thriller, boasting scant thrills or imagination, douses a mystic time-travel concept with soap operatic hand-wringing to mawkishly unconvincing effect. The U.S.-Mexican co-production is getting released to some 300 Stateside screens, primarily targeting Hispanic markets.

A prologue depicts a Nasa missile going off-course and crashing in the Zone of Silence, “the Bermuda Triangle of Mexico” which

Interview: Writer/Director Lorena Villarreal Talks Silencio

  • DailyDead
Set against the backdrop of Mexico’s Bermuda Triangle—the Zone of Silence—Lorena Villarreal’s sci-fi thriller Silencio is centered around a psychologist named Ana (Melina Matthews) who must locate a special stone discovered by her grandfather (John Noble) that has special abilities that can not only save her son’s life, but impact the world as we know it.

Silencio arrives in theaters this Friday, and earlier this week, Daily Dead spoke to Villarreal about how this strange phenomenon in Mexico inspired her to make this film, working with her incredible cast, the joy of having her film headed to the big screen for a theatrical run, and more.

Great to speak with you today, Lorena. I would love to start at the beginning of this, and talk about what inspired your story for Silencio. I didn't know much about the Zone of Silence myself, and I just

Review: Silencio, Time-Bending Thriller That Misses Opportunities

Science fiction, arguably, has always been the more ponderous of the fantastic genres, in that in its various high-concept scenarios, it asks its audience to contemplate large questions regarding the nature of human existence, and how we function within that existence. Lorena Villarreal's english-language feature debut, Silencio, gives such a scenario, but sadly takes a long time to get there, and misses many opportunities to consider deeper and more interesting questions along the way. In the Zone of Silence, an area of Mexico names as such for its magnetic properties, scientists James (John Noble) and Peter (Nic Jackman) discover a strange stone, which, when handled at precisely 3:33, transports them to a tragic moment in time: when James' daughter, son-in-law, and grandaughters were killed in...

‘DC’s Legends of Tomorrow’: Why the CW Underdog Is Television’s Most Delightful Series

  • Indiewire
This fall, “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow” star Dominic Purcell offered a withering indictment of the first season in an Instagram post — namely, that it “sucked.” This was not an uncommon opinion of the series when it initially launched in 2016. But it meant something coming from Purcell, who still plays Mick Rory on what has become, in Season 4, the most flat-out enjoyable show on television.

However, Purcell clarified that while the first season of the time travel adventure show “was a dud” and he “wanted off it,” the second season was “a genius master stroke” by the writers, who realized they could “have fun with it.”

Much like Purcell, fans have come to embrace the beautiful strangeness of “Legends.” It’s just one of the 14 series on which uber-producer Greg Berlanti currently has his name, but the only one that brings together a revolving door of lower-tier characters drawn

Review: Legends of Tomorrow the Complete Third Season

  • Comicmix
“Insane is what we do best.”

To appreciate fully the CW’s Legends of Tomorrow, you just have to lean in with the crazy. An antidote to the overly grim Arrow, the spinoff show embraces its sloppiness. The “legends” wear their inefficiency as a badge of honor and each episode of the third season amplifies this while also tightening the bonds between them.

Legends of Tomorrow the Complete Third Season is a three-disc set out now from Warner Home Video, In addition to all 18 episodes, we get the complete “Crisis on Earth-x” crossover with Arrow, Flash, and Supergirl. Taken as a whole, the season introduces a major threat and deals with it, while also pausing to focus on the various characters while also setting up the fourth season, doing a better job than its peers do.
