If you're a fan of comic books, scifi, or fantasy, there
are a ton of great TV series on right now! It's hard to keep
up. If you love "The Flash" and "Arrow," then you should
love this show. It has some of the characters we've met in
those shows, for one thing, and it's run by the same people.
Sarah Lance (White Canary) and Ray Palmer (The Atom) from
"Arrow" join Firestorm, Hawkman and Hawkgirl, and Captain
Cold and Heatwave from "The Flash" team up to fight the big
baddie Vandal Savage, whom we met in "The Flash" as well.
They're put together by time traveler Rip Hunter (played by
Doctor Who and Broadchurch actor Arthur Darvill).
It's an interesting collection of people, especially with
the edition of villains Captain Cold and Heatwave, who are
not heroes at all, but part of this hero group! It has all
of the same great special effects and action-filled story,
plus fun dialogue, that you're used to from those other two
CW shows. I can't wait to see what happens next! You don't
want to miss this one.
It's only ten episodes, but I'm guessing that if it's a
big hit, they'll bring it back again as a full-length TV
show. I hope so!
