Midway Through ‘Legends Of Tomorrow’ Season 1

Spoiler Warning DC’s Legends of Tomorrow through episode 8.

 

I’ve never made any secret of my love for comic book television, especially those shows set in the Arrow-Verse. I was ecstatic when ‘Arrow’ was given a spin-off in ‘The Flash’ and I was even more excited a year ago when I found out last year that another spin-off was in the works. That show went on to become ‘DC’s Legends of Tomorrow’ — a daring attempt at borrowing some of the supporting characters from both of its parent shows in what promised to be a time traveling epic, the likes of which we haven’t seen in a live-action comics setting before.

We have reached the half-way point of the show’s freshman season, and so far I haven’t been let down. No, it’s not perfect. What show is? But overall I’ve been really happy with this third (or is it the fourth?) installment into the Arrow-Verse. I would like to take the opportunity provided by this brief hiatus to go over some of what I think is working for the series, and some of what isn’t.
