Critics Consensus

Fun and familiar, "Freakshow" showcases the some of the best of what the Legends have to offer -- unfortunately, it's not quite enough to overcome the season's tonal incongruities.

Episode Info

The Legends are in 1870 to fix the anachronism which happens to be at P.T. Barnum's fledgling circus. However, Nate and Ray accidentally free a saber-toothed tiger, creating a bigger problem. Meanwhile, P.T. Barnum is on the hunt to capture Nate and Ray to make his show even more exciting for the crowd.

Critic Reviews for Freakshow

Both of these episodes are fun, but exceptionally lacking in the logic department, needless to say.

This show is nothing if not a wink and a nod at its best.

"Freakshow" is another fun romp for this dysfunctional team, one that makes the most of the circus trappings and inducts Amaya back into the fold in the process.

Basically, it's got everything you've come to expect and love from Legends of Tomorrow.

The Legends may suck at fixing anachronisms, but they sure know how to put on a show.

There are some serious plot points in this episode, most of them concerning the return of Amaya, but in general, it's another goofy romp that once again showcases how the Legends tend to make things much worse before they get better.

'Freakshow' is a fantastic example of why Legends of Tomorrow is such a fun show, with plenty of humor and ridiculous capers (including a shrink ray and a saber tooth tiger), but some truly touching moments to balance them out.

It seems like a lot has happened in her life since we last saw her, and it was much more eventful than the time we spent away from the other Legends.

Though there are fun moments, there were different tones going on with some characters that oddly didn't sit right with the series.

"Freakshow" was a little bit of a mess of an episode, and the show stopped having fun alongside the characters and started, a little bit, having fun at their expense.
