Critics Consensus

Every bit as fun and creative as its title, "Raiders of the Lost Art" hits Legends' sweet spot.

Episode Info

Damien Darhk and Malcolm Merlyn try to capture Rip Hunter in 1967 and create an Aberration big enough to draw the attention of the Legends. However, when the team arrives they discover that Rip has no memories of his past due to "time drift" and is just a graduate film student. After trying to convince Rip of who he was, they discover that he possesses an incredibly powerful artifact known as the Spear of Destiny, which the Legion of Doom is after.

Critic Reviews for Raiders of the Lost Art

Whatever the case, so good so far.

"Raiders of the Lost Art" is Legends embracing what it does best. It's acknowledging deep, philosophical discussions aren't best played out on a time ship while proving they're not needed to tell a memorable and thought provoking tale.

Legends of Tomorrow started off the new year on very strong footing as the team rescued George Lucas.

'Raiders of the Lost Art' sees the Legends team finally name the group of villains they're facing this season, with Nate doing the honors - and offering a nod to the Legion of Doom's first ever appearance...

It was a really effective, entertaining episode, and one that I hope sets the tone for the rest of the season.

If the rest of the season plays out like Raiders of the Lost Art, we're in for one heck of a ride.

"Raiders Of The Lost Art" is far and away the show's silliest episode yet.

This hour sets up something promising for Mick, and I am, with some reservations, excited to see where it heads.
