Pretty sure that was included in the first trailer for season 3 and it was amazing back then too. For anyone that doesn't realize the joke and/or missed it the first time it came up Victor Garber played the Titanic's designer, Thomas Andrews, in Titanic.

AND this episode had Billy Zane in it

The entire episode I was wondering where the hell I had seen P.T. Barnum's actor before.

So, I kind of got distracted near the end of the episode, but that bit with Sara and the team laughing at the whole “Rip’s hiding something from us” trope means that everyone, the Time Bureau included, has no idea that the big bad of the season is even out there, right?

What was the deal with that? I got all hyped to see one of my favorite Z-listers and he's just... kinda... there. Sort of. Like, he gets in a couple smirks, Vixen backhands him, and then he disappears. At least have him guard the sabertooth tiger or something.

(Yes, DC has a character named B'wana Beast.)

He wasn't just dressed as B'wana Beast, according to the credits that was B'wana Beast.

It's like watching the collapse of Western civilization in fast forward.

Yeah, please just let him get hit with a frabjulator ray that breaks his connection to Jax. Then he can retire happily after giving the matrix of leadership to someone else. Cpt Lance would be a good fit.

Mary Worth had an illicit affair with Refurb and kidnapped Sophie when she learned the truth. Little did Sophie know, but she was held in Apartment 3G under the watchful eye of The Phantom until Dick Tracy rescued her. Meanwhile, in spite of everything, Working Daze still sucked.

Of the current team I'd go with Mick instead. He doesn't really have any special powers or abilities and his physical presence in a fight is about the least important thing about him.

It would make sense, too, since he's a pyromaniac.

Now I want to see Mick as Firestorm with Jax as the voice in his head. He looks and acts the exact same except his head is on fire the whole time.

Imagine them shifting Tom Cavanaugh to Legends so one of the Dr Wells can be one half of Firestorm. That would be very good. He pretty much filled the "Voice in the head of the Flash that tells him how to use his science powers." so it is a pretty easy transition.

Mick as a floating ghost head giving bad advice would be hysterical.

So when Mick and Jax merge is Firestorm suddenly drunk as gently caress, or does he inherit Mick's ability to function at up to 80% blood alcohol levels?

Catching up, and gently caress this show is getting lazier by the season I mean it was always going to be silly with the anachronism gimmick, but the historian brings a picture book of Roman history with him in the minute it takes to drop off Caesar just to lose it and ruin two thousand years of history? They manage to escalate the severity of catching a shrunk sabre tooth tiger ten-fold, completely blow their cover at the end, and it's hand-waved by the timeline itself because it's Billy Zane's wacky circus?

Like holy poo poo, how has nobody knocked out Nate and dumped him back in 2017?

Them taking the piss out of there being a bigger threat waiting for them that makes everything they've faced yet pale in comparison! was funny though, if a bit frustratingly indicative of how seriously this is all going to be taken. Which would be fine, except as has been established, they're lazy
