The 5 Best (& 5 Worst) Episodes of DC's Legends of Tomorrow, According To IMDb

The CW network's Arrowverse has expanded in ways that even the biggest fans probably didn't expect. Starting with Arrow, moving on to The Flash, and then surprising everyone with DC's Legends of Tomorrow. The series is one of the most unique and somewhat obscure superhero shows ever made.

DC's Legends of Tomorrow has given us characters like White Canary, Atom, Captain Cold, Firestorm, and more an opportunity to shine. We follow their wacky adventures through time. The show can usually be counted on to deliver entertaining episodes. Some are great, but others are kind of forgettable. According to the users over at IMDb, these are the best and worst episodes of the series.

10 Worst: Séance and Sensibility (7.6)

Some of the most fun viewers have had with DC's Legends of Tomorrow is when the show incorporates real-life figures. That was the case with "Séance and Sensibility," the eleventh episode of Season 4. It focused on famous author Jane Austen as she was at the center of the team's mission.

Unfortunately, it didn't go over quite that well with audiences. Austen's appearance lacked some of the enjoyable bits that other historic figures had. Constantine and Rory's séance storyline wasn't all that interesting, while forcing Nora and Ray together didn't work out as well as it could have.

9 Best: Aruba (8.9)

For the most part, the Arrowverse seems to nail their big season finales. "Aruba" wrapped up this show's second season and was one of the best episodes. The Legion of Doom, consisting of Eobard Thawne, Malcolm Merlyn, and Damien Darhk had battled the Legends all season and it came to a head here.

This episode had a little bit of everything. Menacing villains, different versions of each member of the team, and the return of fan-favorites like Captain Cold. "Aruba" was also boosted by the show's best cliffhanger. While defeating the Legion, the Legends accidentally broke time, experiencing a modern city populated by dinosaurs.

8 Worst: Amazing Grace (7.6)

The fourteenth episode of Season 3 was "Amazing Grace." Though it falls under the "worst" category, this is far from a bad episode. The 7.6 score should indicate that. The premise was fun, as the team had to fix a problem in 1950s Memphis that destroyed rock and roll.

Bringing in Elvis Presley for "Amazing Grace" was one of the best things about it. It was the storyline aspects not involving music that lacked. Zari helping Wally West adjust to being part of the team wasn't filled with stuff you'd call "must-see TV." Still, this being on the "worst" side shows you how consistent the quality of this series is.

7 Best: Legends Of To-Meow-Meow (9.0)

Get ready to see several episodes scoring a 9.0 rating. This one ranks lowest of the bunch due to having fewer total reviews than the others. "Legends of To-Meow-Meow" was exactly the kind of hour of weird entertainment that this show excels at. The eighth episode of Season 4, it also doubled as a mid-season finale.

"Legends of To-Meow-Meow" showed us what happens when the Legends break the cardinal rule and change the past. Constantine, Charlie, and Zari dealt with the ramifications and saw all of the negative possible outcomes. It made for a varied installment. The highlight had to be the "Sirens of Space-Time," a Charlie's Angels parody starring Sara, Gideon, and Ava.

6 Worst: Camelot/3000 (7.6)

Fans seem to be more favorable when DC's Legends of Tomorrow travel back in time rather than to the future. "Camelot/3000," the twelfth edition from Season 2, went into the future first as the Legends looked to recover the Spear of Destiny before the Legion of Doom.

This adventure put them in different time periods. That's a good idea on paper but the execution was a bit off. King Arthur's Camelot, a meeting with Stargirl, and a villainous version of Rip Hunter would all be fine on their own. But together, it made the episode a bit jumbled to a lot of viewers.

5 Best: Here I Go Again (9.0)

No superhero show on television has seen a cast turnover more often than this one. There are so many characters who have moved in and out or just left the show for good. Bringing in new characters can be difficult. Zari was one who seemed to struggle at first, but then this episode happened.

"Here I Go Again" was the eleventh installment of Season 3 and it focused on Zari being trapped in a time loop. Each loop saw the Waverider blow up as she tried everything to save everyone. Her investigation led her to figure out her place on the team in one of the most entertaining hours in show history.

4 Worst: Freakshow (7.5)

This is one of those episodes that should have worked out so much better. When you mix the Legends with something as zany as the circus, that's a recipe for success. "Freakshow," the second episode of Season 3, saw the team attempt to solve an anachronism at P.T. Barnum's circus.

To be fair, it isn't like there's anything flat-out bad in "Freakshow." It just doesn't live up to the high standards of the rest of the series. Nate and Ray accidentally setting a saber-toothed tiger loose and Barnum trying to capture them for his show just wasn't as engaging as we wanted.

3 Best: Invasion! (9.0)

The best thing about the shared Arrowverse is the crossover episodes. These annual events are always a blast. "Invasion!" came during DC's Legends of Tomorrow's second season and was part of the third set of crossovers. This one wrapped up that story in a really fun way.

The Legends got to team up with the Flash, Supergirl, the Green Arrow, and others to take on the invading Dominators. There's no denying how cool it was to see everyone join forces. From dope action sequences to great character interactions to the major revelation about Martin's daughter, this episode had a little bit of everything.

2 Worst: Progeny (7.5)

According to IMDb reviews, the worst episode of the series came during Season 1. "Progeny" was the tenth episode and it gave us a look at a consistent dilemma for the team. They were split over the idea of killing a teenage boy who will one day grow up to be the powerful ally of Vandal Savage.

Maybe it was because audiences weren't used to the characters, but they felt this didn't click. This kind of episode, where our favorites are at odds, is one that usually gets well-received in later seasons. A 7.5 rating being the worst in series history shows that this is a consistently strong show.

1 Best: Crisis On Earth-X, Part 4 (9.0)

Another crossover episode tops the list. "Crisis on Earth-X" saw everyone from the Arrowverse come together for the wedding of Barry Allen and Iris West. The joyous event was ruined when enemies from Earth-X crashed the ceremony. In "Part 4," everything culminated in a big battle.

Not only were the scenes involving the Legends great, but fans of the entire Arrowverse got an unexpected treat. Barry and Iris got married at the end of the episode, as did Oliver and Felicity. An iconic moment in the Arrowverse and it didn't happen on The Flash or Arrow. It was on DC's Legends of Tomorrow.
