"Seriously, you idiots haven't figured this out by now? It all started when we blew up the time pigs, the Time Masters. Now history's all screwed up, and it's up to us to unscrew it up. But half the time, we screw things up even worse. So don't call us heroes, we're something else. We're legends. Who writes this crap anyway?"
I've been laughing for an hour. No joke. There are tears in my eyes, my stomach hurts and I'm wheezing. This is so perfect and in character for Mick. And it sums up the show really well.
The Legends have a chore wheel, celebrate Christmas together and they actually called themselves a family. I love this team dynamic so much. They're all my children, including Stein. My stupid, violent children, getting in trouble all the time and making poor life choices. What can I say? They've stolen my heart.
What an absolutely terrible show, I love it so much

I spit my coffe. Tears in my eyes. I broke the replay button. And I though last week's Legion intro was the best. But seriously, who wrote this? Sums up both the show and Mick. Can we just have Mick do the intro from now on, pleeeeease? He's the perfect mix between crampy and crazy. Gotta love the guy.
This was one fun as episode. So odd to have a Christmas episode in February, though. But hey, this is so Legends, isn't it? It was beyond amazing. Jax is so badass and Ray running from the rat was hilarious. And Sara needs to stop dying. She's Kenny. Jefferson be like: "oh no, Rip killed Sara. You bastards".
When Rip was searching for the Spear of Destiny, did I just see the Helmet of Fate?
Legends is killing it this season. Perfectly crazy. This show's drugs.
Let's give it up for tonight's MVP: ARTHUR DARVILL. He fucking killed it tonight. I don't want old Rip back. He's a fantastic villain. My goodness, why am I always attracted to bad guys? Where has he been all my life? I need Evil Rip. He's just awesome. He felt so threatening. As cunning as he was back in S1, he's a real menace now. And he's totally unafraid of dying. That is how you portrait an evil presence. One of my favourite characters. What a phenomenal acting.
The quotes were amazing:"I bet you couldn't even find your own as with two hands and a flashlight". "Save Rory. That was implied". "Hitler ruins everything""In fact, I learnt a new word from my private, KABOOM!"Not to forget Stein's "Dammit Jefferson, I'm a physicist, not a doctor".
Every time Washington said Martha I had BvS flashbacks.
I love this show. KABOOM!
Mick was all over it this ep. That intro, his near-mentoring of George Washington (terrifying as that thought might have been before). The real inspiration behind the brilliantly sneaky tactics that won the American Revolutionary War. Wow.
My only real gripe was near the end. We can't let the Spear-fragment get away! But we can't shoot Rip! But... But... Oh, dammit, just shoot him in the leg and reel 'em both in. I appreciate the we're-not-killers theme they keep trying to push (while shooting redcoats left and right--uh, waitaminute...), but that doesn't have to go hand-in-hand with a we're-idiots theme, does it?
Intro was 10\10 "Who writes this crap anyway?"
OMG that beginning of the show LOL and celebrating Xmas right now...daring but i love it!
I am so here for Evil Rip but he better not lay a finger on Sara ever again.
As Mick says in the opening statement "Who writes this crap anyway?"
So... the world as we know it hangs in the balance whilst Nate and Amaya bump nasties in a tent they just happen to find! Who would have thought it....
31/5000Looking for the "lost" fragment
So Rip + time machine = Rory + tardis.... I can go with that, though is lame... But to also do "crap on Christmas"... Moffat should sue the writers of this show!
Everyone should have a drunk Uncle Mick!!
Mick was absolutely fantastic this episode!
