Legends are back

The Legends are back this October.

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow television series amps up the firepower for season three starting this month.

Fans are set to welcome back the team as they board the time travelling spacecraft known as the Waverider and once again save the world from darkness and destruction.

Everyone’s back in season three including the dynamic duo which makes up Firestorm (Victor Garber and Franz Drameh), the bumbling overgrown boy scout Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh), the lethal fighting machine Sara Lance (Caity Lotz), arsonist Mick Rory (Doninic Purcell), historian Nate Heywood (Nick Zano) and the magical Amaya Jiwe (Maisie Richardson-Sellers).

What remains to be seen is if the beloved Captain Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill) will join the team again after he walked away from his ship and AI Gideon leaving them in the capable hands of the Legends.

The show is cheesy, corny and does not take itself too seriously, which is what makes it perfect.

The past two seasons have been hilarious, often laughing at the characters rather than with them but it’s a fun show to watch compared to some of the darker shows like Arrow which is all part of the DC television universe.

One minute the Legends are saving JRR Tolkien from the trenches of World War 1 and the next they are trying to outrun a dinosaur in the Jurassic period.

If season three is anything like season two then the show is bound to be a hit.

However if all else fails simply get Professor Martin Stein to sing the Banana Boat song to a group of NASA scientists and the network will be guaranteed to secure rating figures.

If you want something fun and enjoyable without having to think too much then Legends of Tomorrow is perfect.

Rating: Four out of five stars

Rated: PG

Season three starts in October 12 on Fox8
