I was excited about watching "Legends of Tomorrow" considering it was a perfect vehicle to showcase Caity Lotz as Sara Lance (a.k.a. the White Canary) after the writers of "Arrow" realized their terrible mistake in killing her off. One trip to the Lazarus Pit later, and they've sensibly given the character her own show.
Well almost. She has to share it with a host of other characters that were introduced on both CW's "Arrow" and "The Flash", some of whom are appealing, others of which...are not. Whereas "Arrow" is very grounded and "The Flash" quite light-hearted, "Legends of Tomorrow" fumbles a little with its tone: much of its content is quite dark and grim, but it's dealing with time-travel and mystical artefacts and other far-flung concepts. It takes itself a bit too seriously, a problem which is thankfully rectified in its second season, when it starts concentrating on having more fun.
It also suffers from a truly dreadful villain, one who doesn't have an ounce of menace or presence about him, and whose evil plan revolves around the two most boring members of the team: Hawkman and Hawkgirl. Though there are some interesting ideas here and there (a time-traveller meets one of her past lives; three of the team members are stranded in time for a couple of years) the show never really makes the most of its premise. Just compare with other time-travelling shows like "Doctor Who" which really explores what it would be like to visit different time-periods, and plays around with stuff like time paradoxes, stable time loops and the other fun components of time-slip adventures. In comparison, "Legends of Tomorrow" is very prosaic.

Wow is this bad. Gossip girl meets DC comics. Truly unappealing actors portraying fringe/ boring DC characters. Preposterous plots and 6th grade dialogue . There isnt one character I like in this whole show. Worse than Arrow and in the same universe. CANT ANYONE DO COMICS ON TV RIGHT ????? UGH !!!!! even as a teen I would have hated this. Not one of the cast has any charisma at all. how did they become actors ????

I really wanted to like this show, but I just couldn't keep watching. I forced myself to watch through the two part premier, and then watched the second episode because sometimes shows take a bit to find their footing. Some of the acting is pretty stiff. Some is quite good. You're going to get that in a huge ensemble show that is low budget like this - you can't afford that many great actors. That said, it really isn't the actors, it is the writing that is the worst. Even great actors can't make horrible writing work. SPOILER ALERT!!!! The final straw for me was in the second episode when Rip Hunter "kills" Vandal Savage & Savage tells him he is going to heal and come back, blah, blah, blah and Hunter gathers up his teammates and they leave to search of Savage in future after he's come back. They know Savage will come back because he's immortal. How in the world do they not cut off Savage's head, encase it in concrete, encase his severed body in melted steel, and keep both of those things locked in some kind of prison? He's a Time Lord - imprison the man's unhealed body in a future inescapable prison. Something. This idea of "let's get back to the ship and figure out when he returned" idea is just pathetic writing to keep the story line going. When writers are that lazy, I'm not really interested in continuing a show. That's why I gave it 1.5 stars.

This isn't The Flash or Supergirl. But it still has some good points. Some of the characters are definitely better than others. We enjoyed seeing Arthur Darvill, Doctor Who's Rory, play a time lord himself. Brandon Routh as The Atom does well. The effects are mostly good. Some episodes are definitely better than others. It did take a while to buy into but I don't regret watching it and will watch the next season.
