Goofs

During the take down of the Legends by the Agent Sharp and her team, numerous gun cocking sounds are heard when guns are seen. Notably, Agent Sharp's gun is heard making this sound and then shown to be a hammerless gun that cannot be cocked- only the slide could be cycled, which makes a different sound. After Sara takes it away, the same erroneous gun cocking sound is heard. Had the slide been cycled at that point, an unfired round would have been ejected.

This sound effect is inserted into TV shows for dramatic effect by sound engineers that are unfamiliar with how firearms operate. See more »

So much fun!
20 October 2017 | by wolfpup3See all my reviews

(Note that I'm giving it a 10 using the old Netflix scale of 5/5 being "I loved it", not that I think this is the greatest thing of all time or utterly perfect.)

I really, really wanted to like Legends in the first season. Piles of great characters, superheroes, a freaking space ship that's also a timeship. There was virtually unlimited potential for what they could do...but IMO the writing just wasn't there.

And then some new writers came in on S2, and from the 3rd episode on, it's just been a lot more fun. I also LOVE that they made Sara the captain. She's just so much better than Rip (and I love how they're using Rip as of S3). And somehow Sara just keeps getting cooler.

Well from this first episode of S3, I think I'm liking it even MORE than S2. The writing seems even sharper, the characters more natural still (night and day difference from the sort of awkwardness of S1), and SO many fun ideas.

Honestly I'd have been perfectly happy had I seen this first episode in a theater. It's probably better conceived than Guardians of the Galaxy 2 was.

So many fun moments, though I'd watch it just for Sara beating the **** out of Julius Caesar :-D Hell, Wally's cameo was somehow more fun than he usually is on his own show! (And the actor that plays Gideon got her SECOND on-screen cameo of the series, to fun effect.)
