"Abominations" barely pulls off an unholy marriage of humor and jarringly serious themes.

Critic Reviews for Abominations

"Abominations" is a bit of a mixed bag as a result, with the more serious moments jarring as often as they are effecting.

Unfortunately, I'm going to have a lot of people breathing down my neck, because I don't think DC's Legends of Tomorrow Season 2 Episode 4 worked.

DC's Legends of Tomorrow has never been one to remain fray adjacent, but they took it to another level with their trip to Mississippi 1863.

Legends of Tomorrow celebrated Halloween with a zombie-themed episode that was equal parts amusing and dramatic.

Although the separate aspects and arcs may feel somewhat disjointed given their different tones, Legends of Tomorrow does manage to infuse each storyline with humor and heart -- while offering the show's typical superhero entertainment.

Even though it didn't all quite pay off, this was still thoroughly enjoyable.

... this episode [was] a swashbuckling hour that managed to keep its weightier moments afloat and still feel honest to the team.

The result is still a solid enough Legends Of Tomorrow entry, but one that feels like it falls far short of its potential.

Abominations finally addressed the {racial) elephant in the room, making for a surprisingly thoughtful and strong episode that's one of the best entries in the series.
