Critic Consensus: "Part 1" suffers from too many characters and too much exposition, but there's fun to be had in the chaos.

Critic reviews for Pilot, Part 1
The bigger issue is that the show feels a bit like it's forcing the characters to stay together just because we wouldn't have a show otherwise.
The pilot isn't the worst that's graced television screens across America. There's plenty of action and laughs, but considering that it's another DC spin-off, one would think they would be able to drudge up a little more creativity.
There's a lot of possibilities for a series like this, and I'm interested to see the choices made moving forward.
I liked Arthur Darvill. I think he did a good job as Rip Hunter. However, making Rip Hunter basically Doctor Who was an odd choice.
