Critic reviews for Blood Ties
There are plenty of pieces on the board, but better for Legends to actually decide on a central arc to follow, rather than attempt to juggle three disparate shows in one hour.
As Legends of Tomorrow settles into its normal rhythm, its strength is further revealed in the cast chemistry, and the fun of watching them develop and collaborate.
I'm still waiting for Legends of Tomorrow to drop a truly great episode, but that hasn't happened yet. This one was only slightly better than "average."
Even Vandal Savage was a stronger villain this week. Unfortunately, the Ray Palmer/Professor Stein subplot didn't quite measure up to the rest of the episode.
"Blood Ties" was very good in its own right, I don't think it quite hit the highs of the previous entry. But man, this show is still killing it as one of the most entertaining shows on TV.
