Legends Of Tomorrow episode 3 review: Blood Ties

Legends Of Tomorrow is firing on all cylinders, and even found time for an unexpected Magic School Bus homage…

This review contains spoilers.

1.3 Blood Ties

There was a risk, in limiting Legends Of Tomorrow to just 13 episodes per season, that The CW could have ended up with a series that didn’t have enough time for character development. I was worried that Legends would be a dense throng of superheroes dashing around between fight scenes and time jumps. But thankfully, just three episodes in, it’s fairly obvious that my concerns were unfounded.

Blood Ties got so much right. Unlike last week’s brilliant-but-in-a-different-way episode, which focused quite firmly on Martin Stein, this felt like an ensemble series firing on all cylinders. There was a clear main plot threaded through the episode, of course, but everyone was given something interesting to do, regardless of whether they were »

DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow: 14 Wtf Moments From ‘Blood Ties’

6 February 2016 10:32 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

The CW

With our group of Legends still stuck in 1975, things are the worst that they’ve been for the group since their debut three episodes ago.

Not only is Vandal Savage still on the loose, but Carter Hall has been killed at Savage’s hand, Kendra Saunders is on death’s door, and there’s just a little bit of tension between uber-brains Ray Palmer and Martin Stein. The cohesive team who were meant to save all of humanity, this certainly is not.

In this latest outing, Blood Ties, we find several different missions for our fragmented team; Rip Hunter and Sara Lance go directly after Savage; Stein and The Atom put their brains together to try and save Kendra; and Captain Cold, Heat Wave and Jax take a little trip of their own that just so happens to involve stealing a priceless emerald.

Much like the previous two episodes, »

DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow: 16 Wtf Moments From ‘Pilot Part 2’

30 January 2016 5:00 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

The CW

After its debut, one of the main thoughts to take away from DC’s Legends of Tomorrow was that the show is an awful lot of fun. Sure, it’s a little tongue-in-cheek, a tad camp, and it’s far from the serious tone of sister show Arrow or even at times The Flash. Legends was and is very much its own beast, and it benefits from that.

With Pilot Part 2, the action picked up with Rip Hunter’s team of Legends – The Atom, White Canary, Firestorm, Hawkman, Hawkgirl, Captain Cold and Heat Wave – stuck in 1975 and still trying to locate the threat of immortal uber-rogue Vandal Savage.

In a nice twist, the team have to pay a visit to a younger Martin Stein in a ‘70s landscape full of hazy stoned science. Of course, with an older self meeting a younger self, the potential consequences on the timeline are game-changing, »

Legends Of Tomorrow episode 2 review: Pilot Part 2

DC superhero mash-up series Legends Of Tomorrow takes a giant step in the right direction with episode two...

This review contains spoilers.

1.2 Pilot Part 2

One of the pitfalls of reviewing TV shows is that you end up with egg on your face quite regularly. Last week, I tried my best to sound positive about the first part of Legends Of Tomorrow’s pilot episode, whilst admitting that I found it to be a rather naff hour of telly for the most part. Now, seven days later, Pilot Part 2 has shut me right up.

This episode addressed most of my problems with its predecessor. Crucially, with all the 30-second backstory recaps and shoehorned exposition scenes rushed through last week, Pilot Part 2 gave itself much more room to breathe. Now that the newcomers to The CW are up to speed, we can get to the good stuff.

My personal highlight was meeting Marty McStein, »

Legends' Caity Lotz Talks Lighter/Dark Sara, Bigger Fights, Retro Threads: 'I Should Have Lived in the '70s'

27 January 2016 10:00 AM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Just over two-and-a-half years ago, before she first booked her Arrow role, Caity Lotz could not have imagined that she would one day come to be regarded as one of TV’s premiere badasses.

Back then, “I was deep in my indie film world,” the actress recalls. “I was coming off of Mad Men and then doing The Machine, The Pact, those movies….

“And if you can go back, like, further than that, I didn’t think I’d be acting!” she continues. So to have played a key role on Arrow during Season 2, loom large for much of Season »

DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow Season 1: 15 Wtf Moments From ‘Pilot, Part 1’

24 January 2016 12:44 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

The CW

The CWs Arrow proved to be so successful that it spawned a spin-off show in the shape of The Flash. So successful have both of these shows now become, that another spin-off has landed in the form of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. Soon, it will no doubt spin off several times, and it will all become impossible to follow.

Focusing on Rip Hunter assembling a team of ‘Legends’ – The Atom, White Canary, Firestorm, Hawkgirl, Hawkman, Captain Cold and Heat Wave – the job at hand is to stop time-travelling uber-rogue Vandal Savage from taking over the whole planet.

Anticipation has been high ahead of Legends of Tomorrow’s debut, and the show didn’t disappoint with its debut episode. While having to cover some predictable beats – introducing the characters, looking at their decision on whether to assist Hunter in his crusade, etc – the premiere outing was a breath »

Legends Of Tomorrow episode 1 review: Pilot

The CW’s latest superhero show, Legends Of Tomorrow, isn’t off to a terrific start. But it does have potential…

This review contains spoilers.

1.1 Pilot

It’s impossible to deny the ambition of The CW’s latest new superhero series Legends Of Tomorrow – a sprawling time travel adventure where a gaggle of superheroes attempt to avert a future war of near-apocalyptic proportions. There aren’t many networks trying anything as audacious as a Doctor Who/Avengers/Terminator mash-up right now, so the fact that this show exists at all should be applauded.

These admirable levels of ambition make it even more disappointing to admit that Legends’ pilot episode isn’t particularly brilliant. Perhaps - after months of hype from Arrow, The Flash, and The CW’s marketing team – this first episode was always going to be a let-down.

After all, it gives itself far too much to do in 45 minutes. »

DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow: 10 Big Questions We’re Asking After Pilot Part 1

22 January 2016 9:56 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

The CW

Not content with dominating a large part of TV’s superhero landscape with Arrow and The Flash, The CW have now introduced a third series into their own DC universe with Legends Of Tomorrow. The difference this time is that, rather than being focused on one titular hero, it’s got a whole group of them, the majority of whom will be familiar to fans of Arrow and The Flash.

Arrow’s Ray Palmer and Sara Lance are joined by The Flash’s Captain Cold, Heat Wave, Firestorm, and Hawkgirl and Hawkman, and the 8 characters are brought together by newbie Rip Hunter, something akin to this world’s version of the Doctor (he’s even payed by Doctor Who alum Arthur Darvill).

It certainly borrows quite a bit from that show, right down to having a Council of Time Masters, and when The CW president Mark Pedowitz described »

Legends of Tomorrow Ep Spills a Secret Behind the Big Lie — Plus: Grade It!

21 January 2016 6:02 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

The truth, albeit a suspected (and logical) one, is finally out:

The Legends of Tomorrow… are, as Jax put it, “the opposite of legends.” Meaning, the eight of ’em were recruited by Time Master Rip Hunter (Doctor Who‘s Arthur Darvill) because the dent they leave on history will be so infinitesimal, they’re meaningless to the future timeline — and thus are expendable, should the mission go sideways.

“That was always the design [of the show],” says exec producer Marc Guggenheim — albeit at one point with a tiiiiiny tweak.

“We were planning on revealing that secret to the team at the end of »

Tune in to Legends of Tomorrow expecting another superhero show along the lines of Arrow and The Flash? You were probably pretty surprised to find that the CW's newest series was a little more Doctor Who than anything you've seen on the network before. Some of Arrow and The Flash's favorite superhero guest stars—Arrow's Sara Lance/White Canary (Caity Lotz) and Ray Palmer/Atom (Brandon Routh), The Flash's Leonard Snart/Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller), Mick Rory/Heat Wave (Dominic Purcell), Dr. Stein/Firestorm (Victor Garber) and recently introduced Jax/Firestorm (Franz Drameh), Hawkman (Falk Hentschel) and Hawkgirl (Ciara Renee)—are brought together by a time lord named Rip Hunter (Arthur »

‘DC’s Legends of Tomorrow’ Stars Tease Their Time-Traveling Team-Up

21 January 2016 2:12 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

If you’re a fan of The CW’s “Arrow” or “The Flash,” you probably recognize most of the cast members populating their midseason spinoff series “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow,” but even if the heroes (and villains) are familiar, the stars promise that the show has plenty of new tricks to differentiate it from its predecessors.

“I did have to adjust,” admits Brandon Routh, who has played tech genius Ray Palmer (aka The Atom) on “Arrow” since Season 3. “Ray’s a little bit different [in ‘Legends’], he’s not commanding anything. It’s definitely different to sit back, and I feel myself in scenes going ‘this is different,’ because usually I was the one telling everyone what to do, in a nice way … It’s almost like Ray has to depend on people [now], which is a more vulnerable place to be.”

“The main question was, ‘is there a script? Is there something to read? »
