Critic Reviews for Legends of Yesterday

I enjoyed the Legends of Tomorrow moments and will give the show a try, but there wasn't much of the Arrow I love in this episode.

Despite some plot/exposition bumps, the team up in this half of the crossover was fun.

We are left with a pretty well balanced breakfast episode of insight and craziness.

The Flash and Arrow were not holding back this year during the two-night crossover event... This time around, it felt more like a two-hour comic book movie with both casts working together to defeat one villain. And damn, was it epic!

These crossover episodes are among my favorites of either series, partly because it's just a lot of fun to see the characters interact. Barry and Oliver play well against one another.

A lot of Kendra's screen time is occupied by her fretting over her destiny... However, by the episodes end, it was nice to see a character who captures the relief of being young and finding a sense of direction for her life.

"Legends of Today" was a really solid finish to the crossover, fully utilizing both teams and highlighting how wonderfully in sync their world is now.

No stilted introductions, no 'getting to know and trust you' stuff. "Legends of Yesterday" was also a great promo to get fans queued up for the new spinoff.

Aug 1, 2018 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

It's amazing how the tone of Arrow has evolved to the point where it's now a solid fit with The Flash - and that was never more apparent than with this crossover event.

Aug 1, 2018 | Full Review…

Because 'Legends of Yesterday' is so concerned with setting things up in terms of future storylines and, you know, spinoffs, the episode never completely settls into its own unique rhythm, or has a chance to define itself as any one thing.

Aug 1, 2018 | Full Review…

One can't really look at "Legends of Yesterday" as an Arrow installment any more than "Legends of Today" belonged to Flash, and the overall excitement and execution far outweigh some of these particular nitpicks.

Aug 1, 2018 | Full Review…

If "Legends of Today" demonstrates any ostensible achievements, it's the fact that the creators are able to so thoroughly throw their various protagonists (and antiheroes) together for a fun and rollicking good time.
