Mr. Terrific or Ragman maybe? Maybe the Flash writers have already run out of ideas to keep Ralph around?

The Hawkpeople aside (who were made specifically to be on Legends in the first place, so they don't count), Legends has kind of been batting 1000 when it comes to taking castoffs from other Arrowverse shows and doing amazing things with them. So whoever it ends up being, I feel safe in saying they're in good hands going forward.

Dig is way too central to Arrow for him to ever permanently leave that show (short of the show ending or some major event leading to his death, anyway).

My guess is Mr. Terrific. Curtis loved to geek out over the Waverider, he's the perfect go to guy for tech nonsense, he's the odd man out on the team, and Ollie's about to piss him off real bad by spying on him even more.

I watched season 1 and thought it was alright, completely missed season 2 and have just watched the sizzle reel for season 3 and it looks amazing. Is season 3 good? Is season 2 worth tracking down and watching?

If the sizzle reel sold you then yes and yes. It's a stupid show but S2 and S3 know they're stupid and lean into it. Feels like some episodes of Doctor Who where the plot is just an excuse to play dress-up or for one punchline.

Great I'll get S1 & S2. That sizzle reel makes it look like such a fun, daft show. Heatwave is such a great character, I managed to watch the Earth X crossover and he was great in it.

S1 has signs of what the show would become- the first episode has Sarah saying "let's get weird in the Seventies" which pretty much defines this show's mission- but basically you do have to ignore the serious parts.

Really the major sign of the show understanding itself was when they made Caity Lotz the lead.

Yeah, like I said I watched S1 and it is a bit ropy I agree with what people have said about Hawkgirl and Savage isn't that interesting either. But a shop in my city has them in a combined pack cheap so why not.

Season 1 at its absolute best is Season 2 at its absolute worst. The difference in quality is staggering.

On another note, I'm behind by a few episodes but I just realized they're doing a sequel to Vixen, which is vaguely hilarious.

He plays for the dreamers that forgot how to dream, and the lovers that forgot how to love.

I thought Vandal Savage had potential because he had funny moments, like when the Flash asks him if he rehearsed his villain speech in a mirror that morning and Savage's response is to find his joke funny instead of being annoyed.

1950's casserole-toting Vandal Savage was great. If Legends had known what kind of show it wanted to be from the beginning, we probably would have gotten all kinds of alt-history Savages instead of just the one with constant IBS face.

I'm kind of wishing that Damien's plot and Molus were totally seperate because that would be hilarious. Damien and Grodd just loving with the timeline to mess with the Legends on a personal level, then Molus shows up, blindsiding both of them as he wants to kill everything, not just Damien's enemies. Damien and Grodd temporarily join the Legends to avoid the demon killing them too, after trying to take him on alone and failing, and after all is said and done they part relatively amicably to return to gently caress with the Legends again some other time.

Yeah, the big thing about him was supposed to be that he was able to blend into the background of history while at the same time building an empire piece by piece until it was ready to come online properly in the 2200s. That was an amazing opportunity to have a completely different version of Savage show up every other week and just go right to the hilt with him like what they're doing with Darhk this year.

Dahrk is a grinning sociopath with access to a Lazarus pit and telekinesis, plus he killed Sara's sister. Amicable is off the table permanently, I'm pretty sure.

gently caress I'm really sad that Jax is gone. It really seemed like all season they were building up reasons to keep him around after Stein left. I hope they bring Wally on board because Flash is really screwing him over.
