Legends returns with an uneven season premiere that doesn't fully fulfill the show's delightfully bonkers potential, but gets close enough to enjoy.
More than pretty much any series on television, Legends of Tomorrow continues to reinvent itself with each passing year - and Season 3 turns the lovable, time-traveling misfits into the ultimate long-shot heroes who still happen to save the day.
Quite frankly, shabby conception on the part of the writers' room almost across the board.
The Legends are back and with it, comes a fun, weekly adventure across history.
Amid the mess they created, these misfits were joking about it and poking fun at themselves, and that's missing far too often on shows like this.Even if Legends doesn't always have the best team or the best plot, they have that going for them.
Got all that? If not, well, long story short, it takes half of the premiere just to get the Legends back to doing what they do best: irresponsibly traveling through time.
While their season three premier wasn't as awe inspiring as some of their other offerings, it was still Legends of Tomorrow at its core, and all of the relationships that make it great are still there.
"Sometimes we screw things up for the better." It's the new catchphrase for DC's Legends Of Tomorrow, and it taps into one of the things that makes this show so delightful.
This episode still had the strong core of great relationships and solid acting that they spun the jokes around. But they pushed pretty hard on the "loveable screw ups" angle, almost a little too hard, which keeps the episode from being perfect.
Some of the status quo changes in the premiere are a bit head-scratching given how things ended last spring. Despite all that, the series; distinctive sense of humor and whimsical sense of adventure remain firmly intact.
