I’m a huge fan of The Flash and ARROW, and so are my two boys. When it’s time for the shows, I’d stop working, sit beside the boys while munching on chips or something. We call it “TV bonding time” as well as sort of a “break time” for me.
We love watching the “crossover series” of Flash and Arrow too! And now that Warner TV has released DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, it’s another prime time treat for us!
If you are a superhero fanatic but is kinda out of the loop for sometime now, gosh, you’re missing a lot with Legends of Tomorrow! But, don’t worry coz I’ll tell you a bit about the storyline.
DC’s Legends of Tomorrow is a sister-series to The Flash and ARROW, developed by Greg Berlanti. The show opened last January 21st with time-travelling rogue, Time Master Rip Hunter, played by Arthur Darvill (Doctor Who), in the year 2166. Hunter sees the immortal Vandal Savage (played by Casper Crump) on the verge of his final victory – bringing total chaos and the utter destruction. This abomination pushes Hunter to take matters into his own hands and travels 150 years into the past to assemble a team of carefully-selected heroes and rogues to stop Savage.
Hunter has chosen what seems like an ill-matched group: billionaire inventor Ray Palmer (series star BRANDON ROUTH), with recurring roles in both The Flash and ARROW, has created an exo-suit with the power to shrink him to miniscule size, as the Atom; Sara Lance (series star CAITY LOTZ), the White Canary, a trained assassin in The Arrow; Professor Martin Stein (series star VICTOR GARBER) and Jefferson “Jax” Jackson (series star FRANZ DRAMEH), who together form the meta-human Firestorm in The Flash; Leonard Snart (series star WENTWORTH MILLER), known as Captain Cold, and his partner Mick Rory (series star DOMINIC PURCELL), aka Heat Wave, a pair of career criminals, villains in The Flash ; and Kendra Saunders (series star CIARA RENÉE) and Carter Hall (recurring guest star FALK HENTSCHEL), who are really Hawkgirl and Hawkman, two souls who have been reincarnated many times, and who possess the ability to fly… and have a spiritual connection to Vandal Savage. Both also appeared in The Flash.
Convinced by Hunter to join him in the fight to defeat Savage, the group travels back and forth through time to try to stop Savage’s plans from being set into motion, while Hunter struggles to keep to his duty as a Time Master and avoid irreparable damage to the timeline of history. The fate of the world is in the hands of this unlikely team, and the battle to save the earth will be… legendary.
Together this motley group will attempt to stop one of the most formidable villains of all time, while they must learn how to not only be a team, but heroes as well in the first part of a two-part series premiere episode.
The 16-episode series features a combination of characters and even villains from The Flash and ARROW, along with new heroes from the DC Comics pantheon.
Well, there you go! Now at least you know what happened in the premier of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow and the next as you’ve already missed a few episodes already. But don’t fret coz you still have more to watch out for every Friday – only on Warner TV.
