Amazingly well written, funny, heartfelt with stunning action scenes, kicka$$ women, and wonderful LGBT representation. This show is seriously underrated. It is continuously under promoted by the CW (there’s also pictures of OTHER shows from the CW here on Legends’ page). It’s infuriating that Sara Lance is the longest running character on any Arrowverse show and she still gets cut out of promo stills and the show is treated as a the ugly duckling for some reason. This show is AMAZING!
You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll cheer and seethe with anger right along these characters. The actors are amazing. It never takes itself too seriously while managing to deal with some heavy stuff. It’s campy and not at the same time? Perfect.
Movie Quality: 9/10
The print is presented in 1080p/AVC with a 1.78:1 aspect ratio. I have to say that I am pretty impressed with the image quality. Having watched every single episode of this series on broadcast television in high definition, this show looks really good in its transfer to Blu-ray. While some maybe disappointed because some of the lower quality CGI in some episodes, that doesn’t detract from an excellent looking transfer. Colors are strong throughout and vary from episode to episode to fit with the atmosphere. Details are great especially with scenes where the camera is up close. Black levels are very strong considering that the series has many dark scenes throughout each episode. There is also grain and noise throughout the transfer, it never becomes obtrusive or distracting. Fans of the show will not be disappointed the slightest.
Video Quality: 9.5/10
The audio is presented in DTS-HD MA lossless 5.1 mix. The soundfield is immersive at all times no matter if it is the special effects or dialogue. I was literally amazed with the amount of dynamic panning from each speaker in the rears. Bass was punchy. Dialogue is also well placed in the center channel sounding crisp and clear. The best part of this all around aggressive soundtrack is that it is well balanced between the dialogue and sound effects.

‘Legends of Tomorrow’ has really been great with each passing season as the writing and special effects have stepped it up quite a bit especially in Season 5. Clearly the special effects budget is satisfied – the action sequences are fun to watch.
Overall Rating: 8.5/10
