Did You Know?


Just before the time jump to 1975, the sound of the TARDIS can be heard just before the Waverider jumps. See more »


At the beginning of the episode, when Rip assembles the team on the rooftop, Carter and Kendra say they have reincarnated many times in previous lifetimes. Sara replies to it by saying she has done that before. This is wrong. Sara went through resurrection, which is considerably different from reincarnation. See more »


Ray Palmer: That's the worst that Savage can throw at us? We got this thing nailed down.
Leonard Snart: Why did you say that?

Wasn't really what i expected
27 January 2016 | by See all my reviews

I have to admit I'm a huge fan of Arrow and The Flash and first when I heard of this I was pumped and I thought maybe it would be the next great thing maybe better then both shows that I mentioned.

But unfortunately it was a huge disappointment , wasn't really what I expected I'm not gonna bring any spoiler for the respect of follow IMDb users but the acting is not good , the plot is simply ridiculous and all around while watching you feel that something is not good in this pilot.

The introduction of the characters is slightly boring and they are acting kinda superficial from what I've noticed , maybe it's just me who knows. Besides that some of the actors don't fit the role to be honest they try to act but you can see it clearly that they are overdoing it.

Oh well from what I've seen it's a bad start with this plot , actors , story , acting etc. And it will be really hard to fix it but who knows.

My rating for this episode is 5.0 , please forgive me Oliver Queen!
