DC's Legends of Tomorrow: Season 1 - Rotten Tomatoes

DC's Legends of Tomorrow: Season 1 (2016)




Critic Consensus: Fancy effects, comic-book nostalgia, and an alluring cast help keep it afloat, but DC's Legends of Tomorrow suffers from an overloaded cast of characters that contribute to a distractingly crowded canvas.

Critic Reviews for DC's Legends of Tomorrow: Season 1

All Critics (36) | Top Critics (14)

There are other moments where you recognize you're watching something that wants to be a cross between Doctor Who and Guardians of the Galaxy. Even if it never gets close to fulfilling that destiny, I'm sticking around to watch it try.

I found Legends, in which time traveler Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill) unites various heroes to stop the future destruction of humanity, surprisingly engaging.

January 22, 2016 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

The prospect of jumping from era to era to stop Savage holds promise, but there isn't enough interplay between the characters to add any dimension to the early episodes. If only they could go back in time two hours and make a different show.

Of course, it's supposed to be like a comic book, but the clumsy dialogue and stiff acting can be a bit much to get past.

Legends simply feels too loose, too campy. The perils here don't seem as perilous as much as comical - unintentionally so.

Unlike The Flash, Arrow and Supergirl, there arguably are too many characters to service here. Add a lot of attendant gobbledygook and mostly shopworn banter.

Audience Reviews for DC's Legends of Tomorrow: Season 1

I liked this season and thought some of the characters are better than others. Look forward to season two. The show suffered early thanks to the arcs and the characters but this will improve with the season two exposure.


Super Reviewer

The only CW show that I had no faith in, ended up being the only one I enjoyed while it was running.


Super Reviewer

Who wrote the script...? The first episode was enough to make me regret wasting 40 minutes of my life.
