Legends of Tomorrow is a series that has never been shy about fully embracing the sort of genuine absurdity you tend to find in comic-book stories. Honestly, that has been a large part of its charm. But, there has also always been some danger that an episode could simply take things too far – creating a story which is a little too outlandish, or treating things a little too lightly. The series fell into that trap earlier in the season, with the team's second Wild West adventure – and, also, with their trip to feudal Japan. Unfortunately, it seems that the series has fallen into the same trap again, here.
On paper, of course, there is nothing in particular wrong with the episode – and, it actually sounds like it should have turned out to be a lot of fun. Beginning with a trip to the year 3000, where they learn that Rip Hunter has managed to beat them to yet another piece of the Spear of Destiny, the Legends soon find themselves travelling to the distant past – where, against everything that Nate understands about actual history, they soon find themselves drawn into the very real adventures of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table. While Nate is understandably baffled, Ray is thrilled – realising that his time travel adventures have, once more, provided him with the opportunity to live out a childhood fantasy.
