    Forget about any attempt at gritty realism like say for example Marvel/ABC’s “Agent’s of SHIELD”; Legends doesn’t give a rats pajamas about all that... rather it’s pure superhero fantasy mixed with a little Doctor Who-esque sci-fi (less the overt sentimentalism and annoying travelling companions) and unlike SHIELD it’s more about an unlikely team-up than getting to know the b-team. Let’s review: Hawkman (kinda like DC’s version of Wolverine) and Hawkgirl (played by the distractingly gorgeous Ciara Renee) are a solid team all by their lonesome and then throw in Leonard Snart (aka Captain Cold) who is just frigg’n awesome (wouldn’t he be amazing on FOX’s Gotham?) along with the dim-witted but nevertheless entertaining Heat Wave for good measure and you get some endearing characters with great chemistry. Absolutely not a White Canary fan but I suppose her character adds the gratuitous martial arts skills and yes I’ll admit The Atom registers rather high on the lame-o-meter but actor Brandon Routh is just such a pleasure to watch as the super-nerdy, rich genius not to mention he lends the show some big-screen presence. Firestorm on the other hand is absolutely one of my favs from the DC canon and I’m really looking forward to seeing him let off the chain, not to mention Victor Garber as Professor Martin Stein has rapidly become one of my favorites in all of DCTV and his new companion Jay Jackson is really starting to grown on me (these two also have some great chemistry). Top it all off with a pretty cool super-villain in Vandal Savage (who gives the show kind of a Highlander vibe) and here’s hoping he’ll get his very own Legion of Doom. “Legends of Tomorrow” is ambitious with a capital “A”, mixing genres along with what some might consider too large a cast but what it’s got in spades is: generous budget, a cast and crew that obviously love what they’re doing and ton of story potential, and yes I’ll admit I wasn’t exactly blown away by the pilot (thus the 4 stars) and yes, the bar fight with White Canary was embarrassingly lame (I blame the character) but still, all things considered, this is absolutely a show I’m gonna take a chance on by maintaining high expectations. It’s a great time to be a nerd in general and a DC Comics fan in particular. Now we just need either A: NBC to bring back Constantine or B: CBS and CW do a Supergirl/The Flash teamup. :o)

    I have followed all these characters as they started as recurring featured guests in Flash and Arrow. I love that they got a show of their own. I am just so enthusiastic watching an ensemble TV show. They got good chemistry. So much great action scenes. The storyline can be a little tricky for non-regular audience because of the time-travel side, but for dedicated viewers like myself, everything makes sense. But if you simply enjoy an action-filled show and do not care much about the backstories, this will not disappoint. Also, I am a big Brandon Routh fan. He shows such acting prowess in portraying Atom/Ray Palmer. Subtly awkward but so funny. There is just something about him that makes you root for him all the time. My favorite part of the show is when they have cross-over stories with both Flash and Arrow. Seeing all of them in one show is just super-exciting. Can't wait for the Season 2 bluray to come out. And I hope they bring back Hawkman and Hawkgirl in Season 3.

    Do you like the side characters of The Flash and Arrow , more than the main characters of those shows? Well then odds are you will like this show. The show basically involves a bunch of side characters both heroes and anti heroes going on a misadventure through space and time to sane the world. The show has some great moments basically anything with Wentworth Miller's captain cold is great . Other moments in the show can be kind of Average or just ok... which is not bad. I would say nothing in the show is as insufferable as the Laurel Lance drug addition getting sober story-line from Arrow. You can view this show as the grey area between The Flash's light hearted colorful take on super heroes and the oppressive nolan-esque take that is Arrow. Not that either is Bad this show tries to balance both aspects of the universe that it shares and in most cases it succeeds. Hope that helps I can say that I enjoyed the show allot and would recommend

    CW continues the Arroverse with an ensemble of people from both Arrow and Flash teaming up to persevere time and the proper timeline in Legends of Tomorrow Season 1. Not as grounded in reality as Flash or Arrow, this season had fun and more importantly Captain Cold to help carry it as the team helps Captain Hunter track down an immortal over different times. It's interesting to see how this disfunctional team manages to work together to eventually accomplish their mission. While not as great as Arrow season 1 or Flash season 1, this season certainly has its moments to add to ones collection of the Arrowverse.

    I enjoyed this show, but not nearly as much as the better shows of this type that are out there. Parts of this show were interesting...the time travel, some of the characters (Rip Hunter, Captain Cold, the Atom), and some parts of this show were hard to sit through (the villain Vandal Savage, Hawkman, and especially HawkGirl, and the plot which many times just spun its wheels). Season 2 worked out most of these kinks, however, and made for a much stronger show. Still, I would recommend starting at the beginning.

    My son is a big fan of DC so it's no surprise that he's a fan of Legends of Tomorrow, but I actually watched the whole season with him except for a few episodes that I missed early on. Needless to say, I went back and watched them later because this show is super addictive and I just couldn't get enough of it! It's a great story line with the perfect balance of action, drama, and humor!! Now, thanks to the awesome Season One of Legends of Tomorrow, I'm now watching the current show on Thursday nights!!

    This show is pure, unadulterated fun. It knows what it is and it doesn't try to pretend to be anything else. The premise is silly and the cast plays it off. Captain Cold is excellent in this series. I liked him in Flash but he pretty much steals the show in this one. The action is pretty good and the special effects for this show actually looks the best among all of the WB shows. With that said, I'll definitely be tuning in for the second season.

    Coming off of the success of Arrow and The Flash, lightning struck a third time with Legends of Tomorrow. The show gives every character the chance to shine; Arthur Darvill is fantastic as Rip Hunter; and the chemistry between him and the established stars from Arrow & The Flash is great. You really want to root for them. Great special features on the collection. Can’t wait to get Season Two.
