DCís Legends of Tomorrow: The Complete First Season

 Review by Suzanne Lanoue 11/15/16

 

I watch this show every week and never miss it, along with "Arrow," "Flash," "Supergirl," and "Gotham!" I'm a sucker for any comic book shows or series, especially great ones like this. This did an amazing thing here by combining some of our favorite superheroes and supervillains along with time travel. It's worked out great.

The leader of the team, Rip Hunter, is played by Doctor Who fan favorite Arthur Darvill. We also have Ray Palmer (superhero The Atom, who was on "Arrow" for a while and has appeared on "The Flash.") and Sara (White Canary), Jefferson and Martin (Firestorm), and villains Leonard Snart (Captain Cold) and Mick (Heatwave), as well as Kendra (Hawkgirl) and Carter (Hawkman).  It's an interesting group because there is a lot of conflict.

What makes these shows more interesting, too, is that most of the actors are just really great and have done many fabulous roles, especially Victor Garber (Martin), Darvill, Dominic Purcell (Mick) and Wentworth Miller (Leonard).  That really helps elevate the material. Mostly, though, it's just a fun show, occasionally punctuated by romance or tragedy.

Their foe in this first season is immortal Randall Savage (Casper Crump), who killed Rip's family and is trying to destroy the world in the future. The Legends have to travel through time to track Savage, to try to keep him from taking over, without messing up their own timelines in 2016.  Crump makes a great villain.

The show also crosses over with "Arrow" and "The Flash," making it even more exciting.  This is not your averager superhero or time travel show, though. People do die!  It's sad, but somehow they make it work.  I love this show!

My only complaint about this, and all of the Warner Bros. DVD's is that they should put all of the features on the last disk, or even a separate disk, but instead they spread them out among the different disks. I don't know why! It's annoying.

The features are worth watching. There's a great gag reel; the SDCC panel from 2015; "A Fantastic Voyage: Touring the Waverider Set;" and a feature about Jonah Hex. Check it out.
