Leg­ends of To­mor­row Sea­son 1 (15)

Rutherglen Reformer - - The Ticket -

This spin-off from Ar­row and The Flash sees he­roes and vil­lains from both team up for time trav­els hi­jinks.

The show re­cov­ers from a wonky, tonally-un­cer­tain start to find its feet as an en­ter­tain­ing mix of Doc­tor Who and the Avengers.

Vic­tor Gar­ber, Bran­don Routh and Arthur Darvill are the stand-outs among the of­ten enor­mous cast.

Do­minic Pur­cell and Went­worth Miller’s camp snarling and quips will be in ac­quired taste, though, and Casper Crump’s an­tag­o­nist is pure hammy mous­tache-twirling.

The ac­tion be­fits its he­roes, of­ten de­fy­ing its TV bud­get trap­pings, and it all builds to a mem­o­rable cli­max.

A promis­ing set-up, then, for the al­ready green-lit sec­ond run.
