“DC’s Legends of Tomorrow: The Complete Fifth Season” Review by Suzanne 9/20/20
Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the Blu-ray I reviewed in this post. The opinions I share are my own.
I love this show and never miss an episode. I’ve loved it even more since Constantine (Matt Ryan) joined the cast because I love him and his NBC series that was canceled far too early. This show is constantly changing characters and actors, which I don’t really like. I was sad to see Ray leaving at the end of the season. I hope they bring him back. I didn’t like the new version of Zari or “Charlie” too much, but her brother was a great addition. I wasn’t too happy to see that Nick was in fewer episodes, either. I liked seeing Astra and them pursuing more of Constantine’s history and story.
The stories were good, and fun as usual. I would have liked to have seen them involved in the crossover episodes, though. I’m really looking forward to next Spring when we have the new season!
If you love this show, you should definitely buy this DVD. The features are slim, but they do have them. Many DVD’s and their features have been adversely affected by the coronavirus. At least this show did manage to get all of their episodes filmed. I think they would have had better DVD features if not for the pandemic.

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow follows a group of misfit heroes as they fight, talk, and sing their way through protecting the timeline from aberrations, anomalies, and anything else that threatens to mess with history. After saving the world via the power of song and themed entertainment in last season’s finale, the Legends are major celebrities. Some struggle with the transition from lovable losers to A-list stars, while others start letting fame go to their heads. When a documentary crew decides to film the Legends in action, distracting them from their original mission, Astra Logue frees history’s most notorious villains from Hell in a bid for power. It’s up to the Legends to forgo fame and stop these reanimated souls (who they quickly dub “Encores”) from wreaking havoc on the timeline, whether it’s Rasputin popping out of his coffin and trying to become an immortal tsar or Marie Antoinette (and her head) turning the French Revolution into a deadly, non-stop party.
“After five strong seasons, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow continues to score in ratings and ranks as one of top series for The CW,” said Rosemary Markson, WBHE Senior Vice President, TV Marketing. “Embrace the weird, and get ready to binge on wild plot twists and compassionate storytelling from the unique “Legends,” as well as unbelievable bonus content that will keep you engaged for hours!”
