Critic reviews for Legends of Today
There's just so many great little moments in this week's Flash - and I'm hesitant to even call it that, because it's really episode 0 of the upcoming spinoff show.
I liked the episode, in spite of its pace. So far this season of The Flash has been all about multiple, rapid fire, nearly nonsensical plotlines. But they've all been bound together with solid acting and emotional arcs that have kept me invested.
It's nice that this episode didn't completely ignore the ongoing conflict with Zoom, especially as the main storyline was devoted to setting up a completely different TV show.
Count me in for another hour of this. Then I'll be happy enough to see the Hawks take flight to their series and let the two current ones settle down in relative peace.
Barry Allen is having a tough year. So it only makes sense to call in a little back-up when things in Central City take a turn for the mystical during "Legends of Today."
The real grade for Legends Of Today should probably be "incomplete" with so much left unresolved until the second part airs on Arrow, but even without a real ending, this was the most purely enjoyable outing of the season so far.
