Fellow Twitter Nerd @remdogg105 was live tweeting the Legends of Tomorrow Premiere. I told him that I had given up on the show and wondered if it was worth watching. Then Sara Lance stepped in with a simple succinct tweet:
Legends of Tomorrow stepped it up. The show reduced the team size to allow for better screen times for each member. I don’t know what happened to the Hawk-couple or Captain Cold but I’m not too torn up about it. Perusing the interwebs, I read that the producers write the show so that Legends will have a flexible cast and acts as an anthology of sorts. Also, the plot is much clearer as to how things will play out in Arrowverse. Eobard Thawne is screwing things up and the Legends need to stop him. This plays into the much larger multi-verse mega crossover that the CW has planned and boy am I excited. The episode was fun and didn’t have too many “eye-rolling” moments like Season One. The great thing about follow-up seasons is that producers can evolve the show and find out what worked and what didn’t.
Plus, the Justice Society of America is making an appearance! One of the more obscure comics that I read is the 90s Starman (I have the whole series run) so I’m curious about Stargirl and her portrayal. Also, if you ever get the chance, read the 90s Starman featuring Jack Knight, it’s such a great unique take on being a superhero and taking up the family mantle. Especially, if you’re sick of dudes in spandex.
I’ve only watched one episode, but I’m in. In the brief stretch, I saw a cameo appearance, two major villains, several great fight scenes, Albert Einstein being a horndog and a new super team. And as Rem so aptly put it, a hot lesbian scene. This show is funny and packed with the things we love, action, wit and cool characters. Caity and Rem, I’m sorry to have doubted you, I simply strayed. I’ll add this to the list of shows I need to watch, hopefully five superhero shows isn’t overkill.
Excelsior my friends!
