By the final two episodes, and Legends Of Tomorrow finally seems to have found its feet. It may have taken a while to get there, but now there's the sense that it knows what it is and what it has the potential to be.
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.
First ep is kind of a mess, but midway through it settles down and becomes a fun distraction. The cast is fun, the sfx/action scenes are solid and I'm down for the ride. Either you like the Berlanti Superhero formula or you don't it's fan service.
Legends of Tomorrow's action sequences are eye-popping, taking all that the Arrow and Flash creators have learned about stunts and special effects and fitting them into complexly choreographed fights, resembling the splash pages of comics fans' dreams.
The resulting hour is certainly impressive from a visual standpoint, with bountiful dollops of action. Yet based on the mix of personalities, this colorful series will have to improve significantly to achieve even near-legendary status.
Fast-paced and frenetic - occasionally to a fault - Legends of Tomorrow's first claim to fame isn't the impressive visuals or logically sound time travel, but an endearing swath of emotion amidst the bombast that damn near approaches poignancy.
I have little trouble saying that while not perfect as a whole, it's an absolutely perfect combination of its predecessors, complete with the massive scope and scale that such a mash-up of sensibilities and personalities requires.
