🐐More Lego Goats Please!🐐

I think there's two ways of looking at the internal logic issue. FIrstly, season 4 has both time travel and magic, so that's twice as much inconsistency!Everyone's entitled to my...sorry, their opinion (ha!), but in regards to the above points:
-Legends has always suffered from a lack of internal logic. The time travel rules really seem to fluctuate based on what the plot demands them to be. They make even less sense when contrasted with The Flash (which also has the same problem of "time travel operates as the plot demands). If anything, it's easier for me to buy that magic has no rules than time travel, because the rules of time travel have been emphasized from day 1 (and conveniently forgotten) whereas magic has never really had that same limitation inside the Arrowverse.
-Didn't have a problem with Sarah and Ava. IMO, it's one of the better relationships in the show. Especially with the purgatory/bed warranty stuff.
-I'm not really going to defend Mona. She's not bad, but I really didn't connect with her. Doesn't help that the werewolf effect looks awful. FFS, how do you go from a creature of folklore that looks like this:
And instead present something like this?
Glad to know my choice to turn it off 8 minutes into the first episode was correct.Just finished the thankfully short Dragon's Dogma anime.
That might have been the worst thing I've watched all quarantine, and we've been going out of our way to watch and make fun of bad TV. Jesus, what a snoozefest. Non-sensical plot, very uneven animation, and literally no music. Genuinely surprised at how bad this was.
Not quite.I think there's two ways of looking at the internal logic issue. FIrstly, season 4 has both time travel and magic, so that's twice as much inconsistency!
I understand the complaint, I just feel it's in the season's strength. Legends is at its best when it goes bonkers, so I figure hey, roll with it.Secondly, it just feels the inconsistency in season 4 is down to lazy writing. At its best in season 2, the show was about a group of dysfunctional characters travelling through time solving time aberrations with the subtlety of a sledge hammer. They would identify a problem and then eventually come up with a way to solve it in a way that would feel authentic to the character's strengths and motivations.
In season 4, it feels like the characters are told what the problem is and then told how to solve it through magic, so it feels like the characters are just going through the motions to get to the ending that the writers want. It doesn't feel authentic to the characters or play to their strengths (literally, in that they never get to use their skills or powers). For example, why would they decide to sing to the minotaur to put it to sleep? Wouldn't it be easier for Ray to shrink it, or for Sara to stab it to death, like Theseus did?
It just seemed like the writers were obsessed with the crazy set pieces, and didn't care about anything else.
Season 1 is, uniformly awful. Season 2 has some clunkers but also some good ones. By season 3 most of the rough edges have been filed down and it’s smooth sailing. Free advice though, if after your first episode with Lawaxanna Troi you find her unbearable, read ahead to skip her episodes because she largely doesn’t change. I mean I love her but she’s a love or hate character.I started watching Star Trek: The Next Generation.
I never really watched this show, and in our current.. *ahem* climate, I'm finding it very relaxing. I am only three episodes in though and Data already got laid, and the Enterprise has run into a planet inhabited by alien black people wearing turbins, who have a savage society, and kidnap a white woman from the ship's crew. Yep....
