Season 2 of Legends of Tomorrow has taken on a slightly different structure this year, with aberrations each week and other new threats. What are your overall impressions of the second season so far, better or weaker from Season 1?
Andy Behbakht: I feel that this season, they have found themselves a bit better as a show as opposed to the first season where I don’t think they knew what show they wanted to be. It’s a bit more procedural while also having a serialized format which is connected to the Legion of Doom. But when looking at this show compared with its fellow CW DC shows, I just don’t find this show as strong as the fellow three. Again, it feels stronger than Season 1, but when compared, I feel that it still has many flaws it need to work out that perhaps will be handled in the second half of the season.
Mae Abdulbaki: Season 2 is a big improvement on the show’s first season. The format of having them travel through time and deal with the aberrations each week can be fun and less taxing than it was having Vandal Savage on last season. At the same time, Legends is still the weakest of the 4 shows and although they’re a large group of characters, they don’t quite feel like a team so much as individuals simply working together. I do like the addition of Amaya specifically to the show. She brings something fierce and I want her to interact with Sara more.
Andrew McBride: This season has felt to me like more of the same, and not much else. Season one was sometimes entertaining but most of the time disappointing, and this is largely how I feel about season two as well. They did get rid of Hawkgirl and Hawkman, though, which is a plus. I like the characters in print, but Legends of Tomorrow never did right by them. The crossover episode was cool, but everything else has been a let-down. I’m not sold on these period-piece episodes with the way they are being executed. The idea can work, it just isn’t right now.
