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.

Legends of Tomorrow is the most comic book TV show we've ever seen.

At the end of the day though, kudos to the CW for creating a show that is able to nail its lofty goals, and create a series that never takes itself too seriously, all while managing to just be pure fun throughout its runtime.
