TOMATOMETER

Critic Consensus: Listless and hollow, "Progeny" marks a low point in an already uneven season.

Critic Reviews for Progeny

Well, I'm not going to rage at the show, but I will offer a polite golf clap and nod of approval.

Once again, a potential bomb on "Legends" has proven to be nothing more than a toy, a plot device that has no effect on the main arc and will be forgotten about next week. At least it was intriguing for a little bit.

'Progeny' felt like a filler episode that was just treading water.

With a premise such as Legends, they need to find plots that work for the concept and have the audience rooting for the heroes, despising the villains, and not feel bored along the way.

The show has greatly improved in recent weeks and the cast chemistry is stellar. But part of the problem is that Savage isn't a compelling villain.

While the initial premise of visiting a dystopian future was promising, "Progeny" failed to offer much in the way of compelling material for its characters.

I couldn't help but feel a tad deflated and dissatisfied at the end, despite what was a fairly decent episode, but I'm almost certain next week's will make up for it.

Is anybody else getting a little bit confused as to the mission of the Legends team? Because after watching DC's Legends of Tomorrow Season 1 Episode 10, I'm even more fuzzy than ever.

It's a rare show that can undercut its own drama before the setup has even finished. And yet that's a trick that DC's Legends of Tomorrow pulled off twice this week

That wig Hawkgirl had to wear in the 1920s flashbacks? Awful. Poor Edith.
