Critic Reviews for Out of Time

While most fans will likely be wondering about the whereabouts of Vandal Savage at this point in time, I do kind of like the concept of the team righting wrongs throughout the timeline as recompense for destroying the time masters.

Let's be real, the big win of this episode - and this season - is the arrival of Damien Darhk and Reverse-Flash as two of the season's Big Bads.

For those of us who have already been through a season, this was repetitive and not nearly as entertaining as it could have (should have) been.

Wow, it's a lot to swallow.

All in all, I think "Out of Time" is a strong set up for the season.

All signs point to Legends of Tomorrow being a stronger series in its second season. The show has eliminated its lesser characters and taken on a lighter, more swashbuckling tone.

... on the whole, the season 2 premiere offers some potential for those viewers who weren't entirely impressed by season 1.

Legends could use character moments that justify the team name - ironically or not - and it's on the right track.

Jul 29, 2018 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

Basically, a missing character or two aside, everything you liked about Legends of Tomorrow season one is back for the season premiere, but funnier, more comfortable and confident, and in some cases, bigger and better.

DC's Legends Of Tomorrow will continue to meander without strong character definition and compelling conflict rooted in personal relationships.

A hammy return to form for Legends. Finding a better balance of goofy fun with more genuine stakes will continue to be a challenge, but hopefully this is just a slow start.
