Trivia

The lines said by some of the heroes are references to what happened to the creators of Arrow (2012):

"I started this alone, and had every intention of keeping it that way", a nod to the producers who had no intention whatsoever for Arrow to have spin-offs.

"I had a plan, life had a different one", the creators never intended to create spin-offs, but the fan demand and ratings pushed into doing so.

"Then things just got stranger", the producers never wanted for superpowers to be a part of their universe, but it started making references to them starting with Barry Allen's appearance in Arrow: The Scientist (2013).

"But the truth is, sometimes we're not enough, sometimes, the world needs a team", a line spoken by Barry/The Flash, referencing The Flash: Flash vs. Arrow (2014)/Arrow: The Brave and the Bold (2014) crossovers, where characters from both The Flash and Arrow have to team up in each others series to take down enemies they can't beat on their own.

Quotes

[season 2 intro]
Dr. Martin Stein: The Time Masters were an organization charged with protecting history from rogue time travelers, but they were destroyed. Under the leadership of Rip Hunter, we have taken up their mantle. Sara Lance, former member of the League of Assassins; Dr. Raymond Palmer, the Atom; the arsonist Mick Rory; and Firestorm, the merged super form of Jefferson Jackson and myself, Martin Stein. We are the only ones left to protect history. We are the Legends of Tomorrow.

I can only say visually good. So-so!
3 April 2016 | by ahmetkozanSee all my reviews

The pilot episode sets forth the promising tale of a motley crew destined for greatness on a romp through time and space. And, for the most part, it succeeds at continuing a trend of mostly-good DC Superhero TV on the CW. Helped along by several characters that have earned us caring about them from their development on Arrow and The Flash, Victor Garber's Martin Stein, Caity Lotz's Sarah Lance, and Brandon Routh's Ray Palmer ground the show with enough heart to kick-start it into action.

Meanwhile, Snart and Rory continue to play the well characterized pair of funny anti-heroes that we have seen again and again on the other CW shows. In particular, Captain Cold's absurdly dry sense of humor and knack for puns cuts through moments of necessary pilot exposition.

The real standout, though, is Arthur Darvill as Rip Hunter, whose sharp comedic timing and deeper acting chops should help keep the show grounded in a strong protagonist moving forward. The more Legends of Tomorrow leans on Darvill and Garber for dramatic story lines, the better.

Unfortunately, not all of the characters on the team are well-developed or well-acted. Hawkman and Hawkgirl continue to be as trite and uninteresting as they were during their stint on The Flash. And despite the potential in Vandal Savage as a character, his writing thus far has not been nuanced or compelling enough to set him on par with CW's other seasonal "Big Bads".

Moving forward, the show should succeed if it focuses on its characters and actors that elevate it above mere comic book cheese, and if it executes its promise of time-travel shenanigans in inventive, fun ways.

Legends of Tomorrow doesn't look poised to knock The Flash from its "best in DC" throne just yet. The Flash benefits from not having boring main characters (I'm looking at you Hawkman/Hawkgirl, and Arrow's terrible Laurel Lance). Consistency will be Legends of Tomorrow's biggest challenge if it wants to one-up The Flash and legitimize future expansion of CW's DC Universe. 5/10
