    DC's Legends of Tomorrow - The CW

    DC's Legends of Tomorrow Season 1 Episode 1
    Pilot, Part 1
    Aired Thursday Jan 21, 2016 on The CW

    DC's Legends of Tomorrow - Season 1, Episode 1: Pilot, Part 1 - TV.com

    To stop Vandal Savage from conquering Earth in the year 2166, Rip Hunter travels 150 years into the past to the year 2016 and assembles a unique group of heroes and villains to defeat the time-spanning villain.
    I watched it and I enjoyed it. There is one thing though, all these months we viewers have been watching trailers that are positive and uplifting and you really feel the team spirit, the rah rah and then within 20 minutes or so you realize all this is a lie and you go, huh, wait, but. It was a little clunky in parts. Professor Stein drugging Jax was priceless as was him asking Heatwave to carry Jax into Rip Hunter's time ship. Then watching Stein do the heroic run through blaster fire the Prof is having a field day. White Canary also had a chance to show off her skillset sparring with her sister and then a bar fight in 1975. There were cute little moments like the Atom accidentally firing of a energy blast at Heatwave, Jax being left behind on the time ship, Hawkgirl and White Canary both slugging Rip Hunter after he had lied to them. You can build a good team on moments like that.

    DC's Legends of Tomorrow Season 1 Episode 2
    Pilot, Part 2
    Aired Thursday Jan 28, 2016 on The CW

    DC's Legends of Tomorrow - Season 1, Episode 2: Pilot, Part 2 - TV.com

    The team battles Vandal Savage, and Atom's suit falls off and lands in the wrong hands. Stein realizes the best way to retrieve it is by contacting his younger self. Meanwhile, Snart and Rory plan to steal a key element in defeating Savage; and Carter helps Kendra remember something vital.
    This episode was much better than last weeks and a lot more fun as far as character personalities coming out in a big way. Professor Stein totally shined in this episode and currently he is my favorite. I did think as a team these folks were a total mess and caused so many problems for themselves that I am surprised anyone survived. I was very surprised that Carter was killed but to be honest the characters of Kendra and Carter are dull and boring and it is not exciting to watch them. Maybe if they had a different actress play Kendra it would help as she just grates on my nerves.

    DC's Legends of Tomorrow Season 1 Episode 3
    Blood Ties
    Aired Thursday Feb 04, 2016 on The CW

    DC's Legends of Tomorrow - Season 1, Episode 3: Blood Ties - TV.com

    Rip tries to weaken Vandal Savage by going after his financial assets. Rip and Sara infiltrate Savage's bank but are discovered by his men. Meanwhile, Snart and Rory talk Jax into taking the jump ship back to Central City so they can steal a valuable emerald; and Professor Stein guides Ray on a dangerous mission.
    The main plot is still coming across a bit of a mess and many "what where they thinking" "didn't they have a plan" moments and I keep wondering how the writers are going to get themselves out of this mess.

    Dr. Martin Stein/Firestorm (Victor Garber) is probably the best actor and is totally milking his scenes as Martin Stein, especially when he messes around with Ray Palmer/The Atom. I can't believe Ray is still milking/whinning about the dead fiancée since he had a hot and heavy with Felicity Smoak from The Arrow.

    Jax, Snart and Heatwave were fun as the trio who wanted to explore and steal and Snart revisit his past. I was afraid that Snart would mess up the timelines when he spoke to his past self and mentioned his yet to be born sister to his dad. Snart revisiting his past was another stand out moment.

    I liked that Sara is on to Rip Hunter and they work well together. Those were good scenes together. In fact all these scenes work well and the chemistry of the group is good, they would be better off dumping Kendra as she does not add anything to the group dynamic or chemistry. She is like this big basket they have to haul around with them because it is part of the plot but it's just a big basket.

    DC's Legends of Tomorrow Season 1 Episode 4
    White Knights
    Aired Thursday Feb 11, 2016 on The CW

    Is the title a play on the 1985 movie White Nights??? Or simple calling the team knight errants on a hopeless quest for all the right reasons???

    DC's Legends of Tomorrow - Season 1, Episode 4: White Knights - TV.com

    Nuclear scientists mysteriously disappear when Vandal Savage retreats behind the Iron Curtain in the early 1980s. The team follows Vandal's trail in an effort to find his next target, while Ray bonds with a beautiful Soviet scientist. Meanwhile, Stein pushes Jax to be better, which frustrates Jax and ultimately threatens the Firestorm matrix; and Rip asks Sara to train Kendra.

    I think who ever is writing these summaries needs to watch the actual episode cause I didn't see Ray bond with the scientist, I saw him flame.

    Kendra going full on bird psycho was interesting as was the girl practice fight between Sara and Kendra. But there really need to cast someone else in the Hawkgirl part.

    I think this show is going to fall into the genre of true action GI Joe stories, a lot of fighting, some snarking, lots and lots of explosions and not much else.

    DC's Legends of Tomorrow Season 1 Episode 5
    Fail-Safe
    Aired Thursday Feb 18, 2016 on The CW

    DC's Legends of Tomorrow - Season 1, Episode 5: Fail-Safe - TV.com

    Some of the Legends are captured and thrown into a Russian gulag during the height of the Cold War in 1986, so Snart leads the team in an elaborate escape plan to free their comrades. But Rip gives Sara a secret side mission that could prove fatal to the team.

    Professor Stein, Sara, Snart are the best actors again with Heatwave do a good job with few words. I do like the scenes with Sara and Snart as they can really relate to the blacks, whites and greys of life and have a realistic POV of life and people. The show is getting better slowly, and I look forward to next week's time jump to 2046.

    DC's Legends of Tomorrow Season 1 Episode 6
    Star City 2046
    Aired Thursday Feb 25, 2016 on The CW

    DC's Legends of Tomorrow - Season 1, Episode 6: Star City 2046 - TV.com

    Waverider crashed in the year 2046... and finds Star City under siege by criminals after Vandal completes his conquest of Earth. Heat Wave revels in the destruction, while Sara is shocked when she meets an old friend.

    I think this is the best Legends episode so far. All the characters had something to do, their own scenes. I liked the crossover bit with the Arrow verse and seeing Ollie 30 yrs older was a nice touch as well as seeing Diggle's young son all grown up.

    DC's Legends of Tomorrow Season 1 Episode 7
    Marooned
    Aired Thursday Mar 03, 2016 on The CW

    Rip tries to rescue a timeship stranded in space and uses the other ship's computer to track Savage. But the situation turns into a trap and the team ends up battling time pirates.

    The beginning of this episode is wonderful full of geekdom that makes it a lot of fun. We get to see space fantasies from both Ray Palmer and Dr. Stein. Ray gets to captain the Wave Rider and pretend he is Captain Kirk, although others see him more as Captain Picard and Sulu. Stein gets to play Space Ranger and does a great job. I did wonder why the writers didn't let them go Firestorm at one point but I guess they wanted Rip to shine using his wits and not Firestorm's powers. Jax seemed to be the only one not having fun with the space theme and only recalled an old Star Wars line.

    I liked Sara and Snart bonding over freezing to death.

    I like Mick and think there is more to him then meets the eye. He and Snart really do well together.

    Liked the Rip Hunter flashback is his school mate also the woman he ends up marrying?

    I'm enjoying watching Rory Williams play a time master.
