No thanks. The absolute worst of the DC shows.

I agree that's it's the worst of the DC shows, on the CW. I watch the show but it's not high up on my list of priorities. So it sits on my DVR until I've nothing else to watch.

I watched the first season on Netflix and thought it was fun.  The second as well, but I'm not far in.  I much prefer the Flash.  But I'm not a huge DC guy so don't feel the connection to the characters or world prior to adaptation.

Legends is fun, which a lot of the other shows aren't.

In my opinion, the worst of the DC shows is Lucifer, which managed to completely miss the point of the comic series it was based on.

LEGENDS can be a bit inconsistent, but I thought SEASON 2 was a lot more fun than the downer storylines in ARROW and FLASH. I think the show works best when it doesn't take itself seriously like with the George Lucas and JRR Tolkien episodes.

LUCIFER sucks as an adaptation, but as a generic cop procedural featuring The Devil, it's grown on me.

LUCIFER is actually one of my favorite shows, but I agree that it misses the point.

Somehow, LEGENDS has become the best Arrowverse show, which is a sharp contrast from the first season, where it was the worst Arrowverse show.

This week's episode, with Matt Ryan's Constantine guest-starring, managed to maintain the horror elements of the NBC show while having the fun, whimsical character bits and one-liners. Loved it.

I'm still enjoying Legends a lot, but I'm a little depressed that they aren't showing super powers as much as I'd like.

Also, Ray Palmer is STILL being shown as a ditz! If not the captain, he should be Sara Lance's confidant and good right arm. No romance necessary... but a partner and strong supporting character. He wasn't a dope when he was introduced on Arrow... he was a genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist. I see no reason to make him comedy relief now.

My wonder is... what happens to it in two weeks? Supergirl's back on February 27 at 8:00, and "I Zombie" returns at 9:00. Where's LoT? Maybe Wednesday nights?

I enjoy this show a lot, and I wish it weren't treated as the redheaded step child. Obviously, they don't want it to fail, so I can't see why it's treated with such disdain.

Gonna miss Went Miller too - appropriately, he is the COOLEST actor on that show!

I personally though Legends, Season #2, was the best of the Berlanti "Arrowverse" CW series for that year. The overarching story line was coherent and easy enough to follow, somewhat amusing in unexpected ways, but closed out it's season with one of the best season closing episodes of any of the Berlanti CW series.
I think the show also the advantage of not being too "bound" by any of the DC legacy, and can go in its own direction. CW's The Flash, after a (IMO) almost brilliant first season, has been a bit too quick in trying to introduce "Flash" legacy elements in seasons two and three, sometimes incoherently.
Saying that, though, I'm not sure about season three of Legends; I can't tell where the story arc is really going at this point.

1) Supergirl isn't coming back for almost two months. Legends has the Monday timeslot for the next little while as it finishes out it's season. Then Supergirl will return to her regular timeslot to finish out her season.

2) There will be more superpowers being shown/used on the show now that Wally is joining the team.

3) Constantine is reportedly returning later in the season, presumably to help deal with the rising threat of the demon Mallus  (whom Darkh appears to be either in league with or doing the bidding of).

ó-

After the most recent episode, I thought it was headed toward the Legends seeking out the other Totems so that they can form Captain Planet to be their hero and take the demon Mallus down to zero. 

I think one of the strengths of LEGENDS is that it is not as reliant on the story arc as the other shows. The QUANTUM LEAP meets BACK TO THE FUTURE nature of their missions works regardless of whether they are dealing with the seasonís Big Bad or not.

I can only guess here, but perhaps it was felt those elements would have made him too similar to Tony Stark or Bruce Wayne. 

He has a child-like innocence about him that makes him socially awkward at times but I've never really gotten a ditzy vib from him.

Enjoyed latest episode (I'm a sucker for time loop type stories).
Kinda want to see that '75 mission they were returning from.

Must say I like this group of Legends, hope they stay together a while. And yes Ray needs some tweaking, it's like Routh is playing some iteration of his Clark Kent. Steel does a good job of being the "light" character.

Me too.

They need to give Gideon an avatar or an android body, because Amy Pemberton needs to be on-screen more.

Mr. Roberts, I second the motion for more Amy Pemberton.
