REVIEW: Mick Rory Gets Some Glory at Last in Legends of Tomorrow 2×11 “Turncoat”

This week’s episode of Legends of Tomorrow gave me some really good stuff and some stuff I really don’t think I approve of.  I think it was better-written than last week by a significant margin, but where it goes wrong, I feel it really goes wrong.  First, let’s recap: Rip murdered Washington and gave guns to to the redcoats, basically ruining the American Revolution.  Back on board the Waverider, Mick and Ray have a brief interaction, talking about…

REVIEW: Legends of Tomorrow season premier a solid episode of series.

Legends of Tomorrow premiered tonight, rounding out a four-day slate of 8pm DC superhero shows on The CW.  I tuned in, having followed this show from the beginning, with a lot of excitement. It didn’t disappoint, but to be honest, it didn’t really rock my world, either.  With Hawkgirl and Captain Cold no longer on the team, all of my favorite character dynamics don’t exist anymore.  Additionally, Hawkgirl’s exit means that White Canary has no…
