Tonight: “Legends Of Tomorrow” (1/21/2016)

The CW Network shows no signs of stopping with all of their DC Comics properties that they are bringing to small screen life and now “Legends Of Tomorrow” will join both “Arrow” and “The Flash” as an offering. It’s a spin-off based on the two series and will unite numerous heroes from across space and time. Check out the poster, the premise and the cast rundown. I’ll return afterward with some added thoughts.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Initially I was on the fence about this one because I was finding that “Arrow” was losing steam for me. The latest season has brought me back and I’m glad he’s the Green Arrow now on the show since that was getting on my nerves. I digress of course and since the show gave us an episode with Constantine (from the not long ago cancelled NBC show) my expectations are high about where this show can go. “The Flash” has been a ton of fun and while its not connected to these shows yet, so has “Supergirl”. The idea of Rip Hunter Time Master zipping back and forth across the timelines and having a solid team of both heroes and villains helping the cause this could be a wild ride. Though the casting has not yet been revealed, the news broke last week that we would even see Jonah Hex at one point. Can Adam Strange be far behind? Maybe even another cameo by Constantine or other supernatural heroes from the DC Universe. I’m setting the DVR for this one and hope that its loaded with surprises and helps expand this side of the DC Extended Universe. What do you readers think about this particular show? Are you going to watch it? Let me know in the comments.
