'DC's Legends of Tomorrow' Season 5 Episode 13: Gary and Gideon truly deserve their own spinoff show
Perhaps a full-fledged show starring the characters might be too much for The CW, but we could still get behind a Gary and Gideon limited series on DC Universe
Spoilers for 'DC's Legends of Tomorrow' Season 5 Episode 13 'I Am Legends'
'DC's Legends of Tomorrow' Season 5 just dropped its darkest story so far with Episode 13 'I Am Legends', but even with all the tragedy at the end, the episode delivered its fair share of comedic moments. And it's all thanks to Gary Green (Adam Tsekhman).
The episode finally gave Gary his time in the spotlight with the bumbling magician's apprentice attempting to save the day alongside a fully human version of the Waverider's AI Gideon. The human Gideon was played by Amy Louise Pemberton, who also voices the character on the show, and she put on a really good performance that's got us desperately wanting more. Pemberton played Gideon with all the humor and intelligence the character has showcased on the series and she shared really good on-screen chemistry with Tsekhman, so much so that Gary himself suggests they should get their own spin-off show. And we have to say, we definitely agree.
Granted, by the end of the episode it's revealed that "Gideon" was only a figment of Gary's imagination and Gary himself was killed off by Atropos (Joanna Vanderham). But this is 'Legends' after all and things like logic and death have never really been an obstacle to the show. Perhaps a full-fledged show starring the characters might be too much for The CW, but we could still get behind a Gary and Gideon limited series on DC Universe. The streaming service does tend to keep their catalog limited and eclectic and this could be a special one-off thing that the fans would genuinely enjoy.
And even if the powers that be are a bit worried that such a show might mess up continuity (never a problem for 'Legends' to be honest), they could always set the spinoff on a different Earth, perhaps as some sort of Elseworlds story that could give us some much-needed laughs in this troubled time. After all, a partnership like the one these two share is a rarity and it would be a shame if it doesn't get the attention it deserves.
'DC's Legends of Tomorrow' Season 5 airs Tuesdays at 9 pm ET on The CW.
