The prospect of jumping from era to era to stop Savage holds promise, but there isn't enough interplay between the characters to add any dimension to the early episodes. If only they could go back in time two hours and make a different show.
Legends of Tomorrow certainly did have a lot of potential, but with so many problems in its foundation, it comes as no surprise that the show isn't able to maintain interest even for its short 16-episode premiere season.
