Did You Know?


Rip mentions "Per Degaton" who is a classic time traveling villain from the golden age of comics. See more »


Incorrectly regarded as goof. Just before the team arrives in 1975, 2 guys are killed by Chronos warrior. One of them refers to him as being "so Darth Vader". The first Star Wars movie wasn't actually released until 1977. However, this scene is not from 1975, but from 2016 at the Wave rider's landing spot. The 2 are driving a beat up 1999 Neon.

Mick Rory: I can't believe you're hooking up with the Englishman. We're thieves. Crooks. Criminals. I have no desire to save the world. Especially 100 years after I'm dead.
Leonard Snart: He said across time, Mick. What about the years before? Before fingerprints and surveillance cameras and DNA analysis. Why did we become criminals?
Mick Rory: Because we hate working and we love money.

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!
