DC's Legends Of Tomorrow: The Complete Second Season On Blu-ray Disc Set Review

FTC Notice Of Compliance: "Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the Blu-ray I reviewed in this Blog Post. The opinions I share are my own."

Arguably, the most fantastical of the DCEU TV series, (I realize people dubbed it the Arrowverse, but since the DC Extended Universe feature films take place in a separate parallel universe and through The Flash and Supergirl, we see this concept exists on the TV shows, I think DCEU TV series is not a huge stretch.) Remember that in the past anyway, there was continuity and references between the MCU TV shows and movies, but the DCEU TV shows have more flexibility regarding the stories the producers and writers want to tell. 
because they do not have to be beholden to single person's vision across a wide board in the same way. Best part of all is for a cord cutter like me, they are all on free over the air broadcast television and require no subscription fees to enjoy.

Protecting the timeline from temporal rifts, the Legends with the addition of Citizen Steel and Justice Society of America member Vixen square against the Legion of Doom as personified by Malcolm Merlyn, Damien Darhk, Captain Cold and the Reverse Flash. Armed with a weapon of unspeakable power known as the Spear of Destiny, the Legends of Tomorrow travel across time to save reality as they know it.

Warner Brothers Home Entertainment's Blu-ray Disc set of Legends Of Tomorrow presents all 17 episodes in glorious 1080p Full High Definition picture quality in their (1.78:1) broadcast television aspect ratio with a sharp English DTS HD MA 5.1 Soundtrack and English Subtitles for the Deaf and Hearing Impaired as well as French and Spanish Language Subtitles encoded onto all three discs for all the second season episodes as an option.

Eight of the seventeen episodes include an optional deleted scene as well as a featuette covering the epic Invasion storyline. The concluding episode in this cross series event is included within this set, but if you want the complete storyline, you will have to purchase the second season of Supergirl, the third season of The Flash and the sixth season of Arrow to get everything. Personally I find this to be a bit of a bummer because if you wanted to own those episodes of the crossover event, you have to hope they can be purchased separately on your favorite digital platform or you could be stuck with having to buy the seasons that way too. I can understand why these episodes are only available with their respective series, but last year Warner Brothers made crossover episodes involving certain characters available in their entirety on the respective sets involved. So if you like The Flash, but are not into Arrow, you could buy The Flash and not have to buy Arrow. I thought that was a classy move for the fans who purchase these sets, but when you split things up it could turn potential consumers off.

The 2016 Comic-Con Panel from SDCC and a Gagreel wrap up the features included on disc. In addition to an episode guide, there is a limited time only redeemable code for a digital copy of the second season too.
