DC Legends of Tomorrow Grade: F

Time after time...each episode is worse than the one before...
1) Stein...your wife is stepping out on you...
...c'mon...
...honey, I want you to disappear for months at a time...it's your dream...
...and, anyway, the new pool boy I hired will keep me company...
*They don't have a pool*
2) We managed to kill him three times in one episode...something we couldn't do for an entire season...
3) Prop department budget, still reeling from giant GCI robot, makes meteorites out of spray painted foam and neon blue Gak....
4) Kendra...even a stormtrooper could take her out...
5) And while we are at it...
...Kendra comes across the exact same helmet, that she saw in Rip's rec room, worn by a soldier she just happens to meet in 1940's France...writes note in that same helmet...then, flash forward to the present, and the helmet just happens to fall off of shelf to bring attention to itself because of some bullshite time travel stuff we made up...Rip finds the note and adventure ensues...
...sheesh, Plot Device...you are just phoning it in now...
6) Awww...Rory and Mick's bromance...
7) So...Sara shows up in Central City and decides not to get revenge on Damian Dahrk for Laurel's death...instead, she begs Rip to go back in time and save her...Rip refuses because saving someone's family is not worth jeopardizing the timeline...
Tell me Rip...WTF....
8) Firestorm can alter matter...but isn't able to disintegrate Vandal Savage from the get go...because....
...well Hell...Rip just told Sara that going back in time to save her family would damage the timeline...so...that's the kind of writing we are dealing with...moving on...
9) If Vandal was working with the Time Masters from the beginning...why the heck did we go through all of this when he could have enacted the whole blood and meteor thing from step one...
10) Yay...Hourman just arrived...
...Who...
...Yeah...pretty much...
