Review Legends of Tomorrow S02E07: Invasion / Getting back to the bigger event! (perhaps one very minor mild spoiler)

genre: comic book adaptation, super hero, action, adventure, science fiction

The Arrow and The Flash spin-off has come a long way and while it not always has been a smooth ride it has been very entertaining so far. The whole time travel thing seemed like a plot device that would and could be abused a lot and surprisingly the writers managed to contain themselves and restrict it to only using it in bigger events. That being said there are some issues with being able to time travel whenever you feel like and how it's used. Still the show itself addresses these issues and makes it very meta. So how does the Invasion crossover saga conclude? 

It started as an epic and ended as one. Bigger and better comes to mind. Especially concerning the elements that make super hero films and shows great. I will never get tired of people fighting the good fight no matter what. That is an idea or philosophy we should cherish especially in a world that is filled with darkness and evil. Like in previous episodes in this saga this one wraps up certain story lines for characters like Cisco, Stein and Barry Allen. Perhaps a little convenient but done in a way I can live with. I can't stand it when shows introduce soap opera plot points you know will be solved eventually but hold on to it as long as possible. Which often mistakenly is presumed to be exciting drama. And that is not the case. In fact it is one of the reasons why many people have trouble accepting shows like Arrow, The Flash and Legends of Tomorrow since it refuses to shake off the soap opera elements. But it looks like the writers are tired of that as well and seem to want to move on from those as well. Hopefully they will stick to this. 

This last episode might not feature long and drawn out battles as one would expect but whatever is shown to us is definitely magnificent. Very close to the airport fight scene in Captain America: Civil War. At least emotion and excitement wise. Of course spectacle wise they did what they could do on a TV Show budget. It never felt like they skimped on money or love and dedication and that is one of the main reasons why this crossover has been a success. Oh yes. I can say without a doubt that this is how crossovers should be. And judging from certain developments we will see more of them in future. All I can say is bring it on I am ready.
