The 100 Best Shows on TV Right Now
TV Guide Editors    Aug. 31, 2020
https://www.tvguide.com/news/features/100-best-shows-tv-right-now-2020/ 

Quote

That's why this year's ranking of the 100 Best Shows on TV Right Now felt more of-the-moment than ever before. In order to be eligible, a show either had to be ongoing, with new seasons or episodes still to be released, or have concluded within a month of the ranking being published. For the first time, we opened eligibility to include limited series if they aired episodes within that one-month window. Ongoing shows that haven't aired new episodes within 18 months of publication were excluded from eligibility. Every member of the TV Guide staff fought for their favorite shows to make the cut, taking into account quality, cultural impact, and overall entertainment value. The resulting ranking is a list that speaks to the unusual time we're living in. These are the 100 best shows on TV right now.

47. DC's Legends of Tomorrow (The CW) 
How to watch: Netflix

...
DC's Legends of Tomorrow might be The CW's zaniest and most underappreciated series, but beneath the show's quirky exterior lies a compelling story of substance. After introducing magic and expanding the scope of its world the previous year, Season 5 saw Legends of Tomorrow lean into its greatest strength: a unique ability to combine nerdy pop culture and historical references with wild sci-fi lore, all while grounding its characters with real-life issues, such as family trauma and facing the mistakes of your past. This is a show that both knows how to have fun while also telling an impactful story. –Keisha Hatchett

The Ultimate Greg Berlanti Ranking
POSTED BY JOE REID     THURSDAY 9/10/2020
https://www.primetimer.com/features/the-ultimate-greg-berlanti-ranking

4. Legends of Tomorrow
...
Years: 2016-present
Role: Creator/Producer

Arrow created the Arrowverse, The Flash expanded it, but it was with Legends of Tomorrow the elastic possibilities of an interconnected superhero TV franchise that fully realized its potential. With Arrow the serious one and The Flash the more fun one, Legends of Tomorrow got to be the insane/creative/hilarious/irreverent one. With an evolving cast of heroes and a nimble willingness to follow its bliss, this story of time-hopping heroes is as uninhibited as a comic-book story is supposed to be.

The Best Superhero Shows to Watch on Netflix, Amazon, and More

DC's Legends of Tomorrow
Where to Watch: Netflix

...
Speaking of zany superheroes... Legends of Tomorrow is the binge for you if you want to leave all the serious stuff at the door and just enjoy yourself for a few hours. The series follows a time-traveling team of superheroes called the Legends, whose main mission seems to be having as much fun as possible while saving the world and the timeline. Imagine what would happen if your favorite superheroes got dropped into 17th Century France one day and then battled a giant stuffed animal the next, and you've basically got Legends of Tomorrow.

5 BIG TAKEAWAYS FROM DC FANDOME: EXPLORE THE MULTIVERSE
by Erik Amaya | September 14, 2020
https://rt-editorial-prod.aws.prod.flixster.com/article/5-big-takeaways-from-dc-fandome-explore-the-multiverse/ 

Quote

3. DC’S LEGENDS OF TOMORROW WILL BRING “A LOT OF JOY”
...
Despite fictional Crises, a real-life global pandemic, and a move to a “midseason 2021” that sounds more like a summer launch, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow still has a major purpose going into the 2020s. As executive producer and co-showrunner Keto Shimizu put it, “this will be a season that brings a lot of joy.”

After a year dedicated to criminals released from Hell and the whims of the Fates, season 6 will see the Legends dealing with aliens — though Shimizu was quick to say their take will be “different” from the aliens-as-immigrants metaphor of Supergirl. Presumably, this means the show will play with aliens as a genre — or series of subgrenes — so expect anything from an Ancient Aliens pastiche to the Waverider turning into Alien‘s U.S.C.S.S. Nostromo for an episode.

The alien focus will directly effect Sara Lance’s (Caity Lotz) story as she will spend a good amount of time with the E.T.s who abducted her at the end of season 5. Shimizu, fellow showrunner Phil Klemmer, and executive producer Grainne Godfree were quick to mention that though she will be away from the timeship, Sara will still be an integral part of the story, but her scenes will play out with the aliens.

Meanwhile, as Godfree put it, “with Sara away, the kids kind of go crazy.” The unraveling begins with co-captain Ava Sharpe (Jes Macallan), who “gets frayed,” leaving “unlikely people” to step up and fill the leadership roles. “We looked at this season in terms of what it means to have Sara absent,” Godfree explained.

And with the Waverider‘s other nominal adult, Zari 1.0 (Tala Ashe), locked away in the Air Totem, it remains to be seen if Zari 2.0 (also Ashe) will become one of the “unlikely” leaders. The producers admitted they considered keeping both versions of Zari on the show fulltime, but knew it would be an incredibly taxing addition to the workload of the crew and Ashe. For her part, the actor said she is ready to play both (even in the same scene) if they can hammer out the workflow.

In the meantime, an early season 6 episode will focus on how Behrad (Shayan Sobhian) dealt with being in Zari 2.0’s shadow during their childhood and how he became more his own person by joining the Legends. Both Ashe and Sobhian hope their characters’ sibling rivalry will also get a little bit more of the spotlight.

The new season will also see Astra (Olivia Swann) and John Constantine (Matt Ryan) trying to share his house in Northumberland. Ryan said he is quite “satisfied” with the way Legends concluded the Astra in Hell story — a big part of Constantine’s past in the comics, animation, and the short-lived Constantine TV show — but also has a “fear” of what the writers will think of to pull John away from his newfound happiness. At the same time, he added, “I love the idea of John being unhappy about him being happy.”

Swann suggested Astra becoming his roommate may be enough to push John back to his miserable ways.
*  *  *
The series will also feature a new character: Esperanza “Spooner” Cruz. She is a survivor of an alien abduction who dedicated her life to both detecting and avoiding extraterrestrial beings. To be played by Chicago P.D.‘s Lisseth Chavez, the character is not a “lovable loser” according to Godfree.

Shimizu added she will have to “earn her spot” on the team.

And though the series balanced its wackiness with meatier stories last season, Godfree promised the E.T. flavoring means “we go bigger and zanier” in the new year.

It's a lot easier to get people to attend these when they don't have to leave their house. 

They just need Nick, Wentworth, Dominic, Amy and Franz to complete the old and new cast. I'd say Ciara but I think she completely distanced herself from the show and I don't blame her.

Two more DELETED SCENES from Season 5 (go to article links to watch video clips)...

Legends of Tomorrow deleted scene: Did [______] inspire one of Mick's books?
By Chancellor Agard September 22, 2020 
https://ew.com/tv/legends-of-tomorrow-season-5-deleted-scene/

Quote

A deleted scene from DC's Legends of Tomorrow season 5 may reveal that a member of the team inspired one of Mick Rory's notoriously raunchy books.

In this exclusive lost scene from the mockumentary-style season 5 premiere, "Meet the Legends," Mona (Ramona Young) opens up about what it's like to work with gruff, "sensitive soul" Mick (Dominic Purcell), who moonlights as the author Rebecca Silver, and reveals which one of his books is her favorite. In the process, her talking-head interview takes a turn into the very personal.

"My favorite novel of his is The Girl Who Died Too Much," Mona says in the clip. "It's a great book. I don't want to give anything away, but basically she dies too much… Lots of sex scenes, gets me going when I'm by myself."

While the scene doesn't explicitly say it, it seems pretty clear that Waverider captain Sara Lance (Caity Lotz) inspired this particular work, or at least the title, because she has indeed died a lot (not to death-shame anyone). There was the time Thea (Willa Holland) killed her in Arrow season 3, or when Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill) shot her in Legends of Tomorrow season 2, or the many instances when either a version of her has blinked out of existence or died off screen because of timey-wimey shenanigans.

Watch the hilarious deleted scene — which is featured on the DC's Legends of Tomorrow: The Complete Fifth Season DVD and Blu-ray set, available Sept. 22. — above. Legends of Tomorrow will return for season 6 in 2021 on the CW.

"Legends of Tomorrow" Exclusive: Zari 2.0 Deleted Scene

Watch Zari 2.0 officially join the Waverider book club in this deleted scene from season five of the CW superhero series!

https://en.brinkwire.com/wires/zari-2-0-finally-joins-book-club-in-dcs-legends-of-tomorrow-deleted-scene/ 

Quote

In the season five episode “Romeo v. Juliet: Dawn of Justness” (which is just the greatest dig at DC’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice), Zari 2.0 finally agreed to join Book Club, delighting Ava (Jes Macallan) and Mona (Ramona Young). You can see the joy on their face in the deleted scene above, exclusive to E! News. Zari 2.0 is finally accepting her place among the Legends! 

The clip also reveals Zari’s past as a classically trained actor, which she got to show off in the episode as Juliet in Romeo and Juliet. But in another life, Zari played a very different acting role. 

“My last role was in the film adaptation of an athleisure brand,” she says. “I played the love interest Leggings, so it’s nice to actually use my training.” 

Mona is, of course, impressed. 

“I bet you were a great Leggings.”

‘The Flash’, ‘DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow’, ‘All American’ & Other Berlanti Prods. Series Set Tentative Production Start Dates
By Nellie Andreeva   September 23, 2020
https://deadline.com/2020/09/the-flash-dcs-legends-of-tomorrow-all-american-other-greg-berlanti-productions-series-tentative-production-start-dates-1234582722/ 

Quote

I hear The Flash is currently slated to begin filming its seventh season October 1, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow is targeting an October 5 Season 6 start, both in Vancouver. All American is looking to begin filming its third season Monday in Los Angeles. Of the remaining Berlanti Prods. series, Superman & Lois, Titans and newcomer Kung-Fu are eying mid-October starts. Breakout Stargirl is on track to begin shooting its second season at the end of October, while Doom Patrol‘s third season is expected to start production in January.

As is the case with any production during COVID, the dates are tentative and subject to change. Some of the series mentioned in this story had earlier target start dates that were subsequently pushed, a common occurrence amid the ongoing pandemic.

Warner Bros TV, the studio behind all Berlanti Prods. series, declined comment on the new dates.

Video of Saturday's GalaxyCon Live Legends of Tomorrow panel (warning: includes very minor spoiler)...

Legends of Tomorrow cast Galaxy Con virtual panel 26.09.2020
Beebo's Legends Podcast    Posted Sep 27, 2020

Panelists: Caity Lotz, Brandon Routh, Jes Macallan, Courtney Ford, Maisie Richardson-Sellers and Adam Tsekhman (with moderator Kid Cadet)

-- Mod asked the panel, if their character had the opportunity to compete in a reality show, which show would it be and would they win?
AT picked Fear Factor and said that Gary would lose "horribly."
MRS picked some "jungle gym" show with a title that I couldn't hear.
BR said that Nora and Ray could be on The Amazing Race and that it would be easy because they could "time portal" everywhere.
CL said that she could see the Legends on Family Feud and that they would lose. She could also see them on one of those "crazy Japanese shows."
CF picked Double Dare and The Amazing Race.
JM said that Ava is so "Type A" that she would win The Apprentice.

-- Mod asked, what other universe or show would have an interesting crossover with LoT?
JM said This Is Us.
BR and CF both picked Umbrella Academy.
CL said The Boys.
MRS wanted an animated crossover with Into the Spider-verse.
AT said What We Do In the Shadows.

-- Mod read a fan Q asking, who forgets their lines the most?
BR said that CL "garbled" names a lot.
JM defended CL, saying that CL has to say a lot of names.
CL said that sometimes it's like she has a "speech impediment" and that names get jumbled in her mouth.

-- Mod read a fan Q asking, who was their favorite villain on LoT?
BR said Damian Darhk, but Neron was a "close second."
MRS picked Kuasa "because it was so different and brought a whole new energy." She said that she likes villains who aren't "so obviously bad" and have a "gray area" and have "heartbreak and tragedy and love and wants and needs."
CL said that it was fun having John Barrowman on the show and that she missed him.
JM picked Damian Darhk. She thought there were some fun guest villains on the show.
CF said that John Noble had a great voice.
AT picked Damian Darhk and also Rasputin.

-- Mod read a fan Q asking, what was the first concert they attended?
JM said New Kids On the Block.
MRS said Destiny's Child.
CL said she went to an *NSYNC "No Strings Attached" tour.
AT said Billy Joel.
CF thought that she went to a Whitney Houston concert when she was 7.
BR said that he went to a lot of live music but it was his parents playing jazz, so that probably didn't count. He then said that those who know him know that he didn't have a lot of friends in high school, so college was the first time he went with his roommates to a concert and it was Metallica in Minnesota.

-- Mod read a fan Q asking, how much influence their character has had on them?
CL: "It's been humongous for me. Um, it's just been such a big part of my life now for so long. Um, it's - yeah, I mean, I don't how many - it's been a lot of years. Um, so I think Sara's definitely changed my life, for sure. Uh, and I think, her influence on me - I - I really like - I admire the character so much. I admire her - her honesty and her bravery, her courage. And also, like, just having a character - playing a character that you just see overcome so much and - and just keeps going, and I think it's - any time, you know, I start complaining or whatever about stuff that I'm going through, it's like, you know, you can look at what your character goes through and still makes it through, and I'm like, okay, I can do this, I can do this."
JM: "I think, uh, a tremendous amount, um, same, same. Uh, more importantly, the show has had a big influence on me, um, just the experience of being able to kind of throw inhibitions to the wind as an actor and play, you know, a million different things. And I feel like I've done a million different movies, if you will, that I would never, you know, in my career as an actor, hopefully, for longevity - hopefully, this isn't my last gig, but, you know, that you always wanted. Oh God, I always wanted to do that Western, or I always wanted to go to, you know, where, um, the French Revolution and, you know, wear the wigs and do the thing. And, I mean, you hope for those things, but that huge movie sometimes just never comes, you know. So I feel like the - the playing dress up - I feel like we've done a million different plays over the course of this show and, as an actor, that's amazing to have said in your lifetime, you did all of those different characters, you know, on something that was so amazing."
CF: "My character's not from the comics. It's - it's an original, uh, character that the - that the writers kind of pulled into reality, starting from Arrow, uh, Damian Darhk's daughter as a child, um, and then pulling that character, uh, over on to, uh, Legends. But I think, with some of the things, you can kind of like go back into and go, oh, how was this person and kind of, you know, do your research and things like that. Um, but I think that... just something that I did that - that I did with playing this villain, it just - it started my, um - I played a lot of villains. So this - I wanted with her redemption, I just kind of wanted to analyze what makes a person go down the villain path versus what makes a person go down the hero path. And, uh, um, I think that they start off in similar places. A big event happens. A lot of villains- a lot of heroes have lost their parents, a lot of villains have lost their parents. And it's like, they've both experienced pain. And it's like, how do you turn that into - what do you do with that? Do you - do you take that out on other people? Or do you take that out on, you now, now trying to make a difference and have other people not experience what you experience? So that is a weird answer to the question, um, but, as far as what did it make you think about, that's what it made me think about. And then that kind of self-reflection, I would say, is what came back onto myself to influence my views. Yep... Caffeine hasn't kicked in yet, but hopefully it will, probably by the end of this Q&A, and that'll be great."
MRS: "Um, I think for me, it was playing the contrast between the two characters, because, you know, Amaya was - I got to experience all the things that I haven't, you know, having a granddaughter, and just these huge big dilemmas of, you know, what to do when - you know, when your - your children and your grandchildren's lives are on the line. Um, and then Charlie comes in and she's just, you know, balls to the wall... I'm not going to swear, but just does not give a (Makes sound) about much. Um, and I think being able to re-create and be much more free with Charlie, but also having been able to go a bit deeper within what is, as you know, a comedy world was really fun. So I think the two together were really, um, powerful. And, like, just to be able to play and be free and just have fun and be in the moment with these amazing actors is a daily dream."
AT: "Um, yeah, I mean, like Courtney, I have mostly played villains before this. So, um, it's been fun to just, uh, put on a happy face. Like, you know, we live in a, uh, dark world and it's nice to have a positive perspective. And I think, like, that, uh, wears off on me. We - me and Gary - wear off on each other, to make the world smile more."
BR: "Yeah, I mean, I think what Adam is saying is - is very true for me also. Um, you know, I often hear from - from many fans, um, that they love that Ray is there to promote science and being intelligent and things that aren't often lauded these days. Science and intelligence. Um, and critical thinking. Um, and so he does that. And he's kind of an unsuspecting role model for that, Ray is, I guess. Um, and then the joy and the happiness and, um, the love and compassion that Ray brings is something that, like, we all have within ourselves. Some of us, it's buried down under lots of trauma and a lot of other things, unfortunately. But we all have that capability. Um, and so Ray has helped - is helping me try to find - have that be more present in my daily life, I guess, um, because I know I can produce it because it's in Ray. Um, but I think that's been a big influence. And just knowing how much the show and the family of our show - the family component of our show means to people has influenced me and shown me, you know, another level of - of - of - of happiness, like, that we that - art - art is powerful and - and art helps people. And that's a powerful influence, because it makes me want to continue doing it. I'm not just doing it for me, like people do respond to it, so that's good to know."

-- Mod read a fan Q asking, what was their favorite fight scene?
CF picked the first fight scene she ever did because she got to "choke someone with a throw blanket" (as opposed to the usual punch and kick fight scenes). The episode was "No Country for Old Dads" and it took place in Berlin.
CL mentioned the fight that she and MRS did in the woods, back to back. MRS said that it was her third or fourth episode.
JM said that "there have been so many" fight scenes and that the zombie fight was "so fun." But she then said that her favorite was her first fight scene where she and CL fought for about 20 minutes down a hallway and then there was "a really bad CG tiger." She "learned what a badass Caity was that very first week."
CF thought that JM was going to say the fight where Ava fought a hundred of herself, but JM said that fight was "brutal" and that one of her doubles "clocked" her with a "full right hook." CL said that the Ava masks were "terrifying."
BR picked Ray's sword fight with Damian Darhk in the "Camelot" episode. He also picked the big group battle scene (that preceded the Damian Darhk fight) with most of the Legends in the snow. BR: "My one Braveheart moment in my life so far."
AT picked the fight in the Ava clones episode, "I, Ava," because that was the only fight Gary was involved in. He was crawling on the ground and someone tripped over him, so that was his fight. AT added that that was the episode where he learned "how insanely Ninja-like Caity is, because I remember, we came on and they're like, 'alright, Caity, you got to do this, you do like a spin kick, you duck, you block.' She's like, 'uh, yeah, okay, let's do it.' And I was like, 'what?!' (Mimes fight movements and makes fight sounds) I was like, 'holy crap, she's amazing, how did she figure it out so fast?' ... As an audience member, that was my favorite. As a fighter, that - I guess that was also my favorite, because I got to crawl and actually have, um, have some physical - " CL interjected: "You have some fights coming up." MRS: "Yeah, you do." CL: "Are you excited for the - all your fighting coming up?" AT: "I, uh, I plead the Fifth. I don't know anything about it." 

-- Mod read a fan Q asking, who has broken the most props?
CF and other panelists pointed to JM.
JM: "Is it me?" She then said that, when she was a young dancer, she did great until they handed her a prop phone. She would keep breaking the phone. She said that she has "big hands."
CL said that Victor Garber also hated props.
JM asked if they would pick Tala Ashe if she was there and the others said 'no.' However, someone joked that either Tala or Dom "ate the most props."
CL said that she's broken prop weapons.

-- Mod read a fan Q asking, what is the best thing about playing their character?
AT: "Getting to do comedy."
BR: "Getting to play Ray Palmer was an opportunity for me to really, um, continue to grow my comedic abilities, um, and be - be joyful and exuberant, um, which put me in a good mood. So that was always nice. I always loved going to play Ray because almost - most of the time it was a happy, joyous fun time of exploration and comedy. And, um, you know, like I said, as I mentioned before, you know, being a part of - of the Legends family and, uh, and everybody on the crew and, uh, it was a great time."
MRS: "I mean, the time travel for me, it's the world. It's the - like, as Jess said, being able to go to all different time periods. I studied archaeology and anthropology at Uni, so it's kind of like a dream to be able to dive - dip in and out of all these different time periods and worlds. And I think also just the - the magic of it, you know, so much of the special effects and the fights and that enhanced nature of our abilities, superhero or not, um, is really, really cool. I loved having the totem and doing all of the animal fights and all that stuff, and being able to channel whatever animal I was channeling into the way that I would fight, as Amaya, was really cool."
CL: "I mean, it's just how badass she is. Like, it's really fun to be able to play badass."
CF: "I think it's - it's everything. Partly what Jess was talking about earlier, that you get to explore so many different eras and so many different costumes and things you never thought you - you'd be able to do or things you always hoped you'd be able to do but never thought. And then kind of what Adam said, which was, you know, the - the comedy aspect of it, just because I have played so many villains and you can - the box is - it's really rigid. Like, you can kind of turn the dial a little bit to the left or to the right, but you still are kind of like, you know, this is - this is how you are doing your dark, dastardly deeds. And for this, it was like, not only did she have the evolution, but then she had these comedic moments with - with some of the other characters and - and with Ray. And I - I never got to do that. There was no space for that. So, like Maisie said, because the world is so expansive, there was so much more space to be and do. And that was, you know, the, you know, privilege of my - of my life, uh, professionally."
JM: "Oh, I think just working with such beautiful actors, you know, wonderful actors, wonderful people. Being with a crew that actually really enjoys each other's company, that's pretty special. It doesn't always happen."

-- Mod read a fan Q asking, if they could have any character join the Legends, who would it be and why?
BR: "Well, it doesn't really apply any more... There was always teased that Sydney Palmer was going to be on - Ray Palmer's brother. And so that was, uh, an opportunity that - that I was always looking forward to happen."
CL: "Well, now that - I'm like, well, Supergirl's last season, so there's a lot of Supergirl actors that would be fun to be, like, come join the Legends."
JM: "One of my best girlfriends is on Doom Patrol. She plays, um, Elasti-Woman and she's amazing. her name's April Bowlby and she's fantastic... I just like to have her on set."
CF: "I don't have a good answer for that, you guys. I could just blah, blah, blah, but -." Mod said that she could pass. CF: "Pass."
MRS: "I would say, I don't know, it'd be cool to have someone from maybe the Star Wars world, because they're both that kind of quirky, mad shows and the comedy and stuff. So maybe someone - maybe like Darth Vader or something. We could lighten him up... Oh my God, Yoda. Can you imagine? ... Yoda in the middle of the console, and he could guide us... It would be great." CF: "I could see CP3O on the bridge." Someone also mentioned Baby Yoda.
AT: "I'm going to go back to The Boys. I'm going to go Homelander."

-- Mod read a fan Q asking, did anyone "borrow" anything from the set?
MRS said that it was a pretty locked set and that everything was counted. She had asked for some stuff but was rejected. She wanted one of the Fates' rings.
CF said that she was gifted her Fairy Godmother wand on one of her last days.
BR said that he got his Atom puppet.

-- Mod read a fan Q asking, what was their favorite episode?
CL picked the "stuck on TV one" ("The One Where We're Trapped On TV"). She said that it was "so good." She mentioned that Marc Guggenheim directed that episode and did a great job.
AT picked the "stuck on TV" episode and also "The Legends of To-Meow-Meow" episode. AT added that there was apparently an opening Friends song that was shot for that episode, but "did not make the cut," and that he is "still desperate to see it."
BR said that he used to pick the “Camelot” episode as his response to this question, but "looking back" now, the episodes that gave him "the most feels" are the last two episodes that he was in. 
JM said that she shadowed the director ("Lexi" - Alexandra La Roche) on the Bollywood episode. She also mentioned the Shakespeare episode and the "Trapped On TV" episode.
MRS mentioned The Office-like mockumentary episode.
CF praised Tala Ashe's acting performance in the "Here I Go Again" episode. She said that one of the "craziest" episodes was her second to last episode.

-- Mod read a fan Q asking, what is their guilty pleasure?
JM said naps.
CL said coffee.
CF said that she tries not to carry a lot of guilt.
MRS said tasting menus (food and travel).
AT said dark chocolate (minimum 70%).
BR said humor and puns.

-- Mod asked if they had any final thoughts.
Several panelists said to vote and wear masks.
CL added that they're "about to start filming the next season and it's really good and it's really fun."
MRS thanked the fans.

ETA: I don't know how long the above video will stay up on Youtube.

No full video yet of Sunday's GalaxyCon Live Legends of Tomorrow panel (with Matt Ryan, Tala Ashe, Victor Garber and Arthur Darvill), but here's a pic (tweeted by moderator Patty Hawkins)...

And a fan tweeted some video clips from this panel...

-- Arthur Darvill: “They wouldn't even send a script because they didn't know what it was. It was like two scenes of this guy called - I can't remember what he was called - called like 'The Traveler.' I was like, 'Alright.' Um, and it was in an American accent. And it was like a script that gave away no information about anything, because they didn't want to give anything away. So it was - it was brilliant. It was also brilliant. It was like, it was really funny and really strange. But, you know, it was one of those tapes that you do and you expect to send off and never hear anything back ever, because that's what normally happens. And then they - they just said, 'Do you want to be in the show?' And I was like, 'Yeah, but what is it?' And they tried for ages to explain it to me, and I didn't understand... And then they sent me - they were like, 'oh, no, no, no, it's, um, it's, um, you know, it's a comic book thing, it's a real character in a comic book.' And I was like, 'Okay, great. Well, send me the comic books.'... They sent me a giant box of comic books, with all this stuff from DC. And I looked - I've got them up here. I might get them down in a minute... But the character looks really - like, I'm like a quite weedy-like guy, and this character was like in spandex and with muscles, like an all-American. I was like, 'This - I - are you sure? Are you sure?' And then - you know, they made it what it is and they said, 'You'll get your own spaceship.' And I went, 'Alright. Yeah. Fine.'"

-- Tala Ashe: "I liked the material. Um, I was just like at a point in my career where I was being really picky about stuff I, um, wanted to do, because so much that came across my desk was like frankly offensive, uh, as a person of color. And this one was great... And a little bit, like, my flags went up for me, because I was like, wait, wait, wait, a Muslim-American superhero? Like, who's doing this? Are they going to handle it correctly? And then, actually, just reading the sides, I was like, oh, this is, um - this is surprising me, even sort of my expectations of what would - what this sort of stereotypically been. So I was just - I was excited to do it, had fun doing it, never thought anything would come of it, and here we are. And it's been - it's been a really fun journey and, God, I love the people I work with. So, you know, I feel pretty lucky."

-- Victor Garber: "For me, I - I - I loved being a part of a - part of this team. I mean, I loved the whole team of actors. But I loved that Martin Stein, uh, was a - was kind of a bright guy, but never had to go fly around or, you know, the stunts were minimal, uh, and that Franz and Robbie had to do all the stunts. So I could go home... But then, the worst part about it was, then there was always a point where they came back. So I'd have to wait around for six hours and then just fall on the floor, 'cause they unravel." 

-- Tala Ashe: "I just think, you know, our show has such a unique tone, where it - it - I think it just does a - and - and it seems to be getting better and better at, like, riding the line between serious and comedic. And that, as an actor, is just - is just fun. You - you get to kind of, uh, you know, just stretch yourself a bit and challenge yourself and kind of - depending on who you're in what scene with, uh, you know, play - play that part. So that - that has been really fun. And, I mean, in both versions of my character. By the way, Victor and Arthur, I have two characters, same person, now. (Laughs) (Arthur Darvill interjects, "But do you get paid twice?")  I don't... Also, our writers do such a good job of, like, you know, if you want it, if you want challenge, if you want something different, they will bring that for you. And that's - that's fun and keeps you, you know, interested as an actor years into a show."

-- Arthur Darvill: "Season 1 was such a - it felt like a different show. I think we were like - it was really trying to find its feet. And I really enjoyed doing Season 1 and getting to work with everyone, but like, in terms of the work, the most interesting stuff was when it started to not take itself so seriously and allowed us to - I don't know, but we started to find the - the tone of it... All that stuff of like, suddenly now you're an evil version of yourself, or you're now you ride a horse, or you're - you know, all that stuff was just like became silly, but you could find the truth in it... I love the tone that the show has found over the years. And, um, it was fun - it was really enjoyable discovering that, being able to play with how kind of earnest that could be. Um, and just like, running, jumping and shooting and - I just did loads of stuff I never - like, I'm just so awkwardly bad at like fighting and all of that stuff. You're just given these like things to do, which you have to throw yourself into, like, things that I would never have - like, when I was a kid... I'd never have dreamed of being able to do any of that stuff. And then suddenly, you know, you're like having a fight in a Russian bath house with a giant man. And you're like, how did I end up here? This is great. This is what I want to be doing with my life."

-- Matt Ryan: "I'd say basically what everyone else has been saying, that really the tone of the show, which, you know, having established the character on - on - on Constantine and then Arrow - moving from those - from the style of show we were doing to Arrow and then to this, was kind of a - it was very interesting and amazing. I had watched the show and kind of thought, oh, how does John Constantine fit in there, you know? And then - it was funny when we - when I just kind of got on set and started playing it, it just worked. You know? You fitted in with all these misfits. And I loved the fact that the show has that tone and doesn't take itself too seriously... The thing I love most about playing John is that, you know, he's - he's a flawed - he's a flawed anti-hero... He doesn't wear a pair of tights or spandex and fly around, you know. He's a human being, you know, that has very big problems and, uh, he still tries to do what's good for - for humanity, I think, deep down. And I think that's the most satisfying thing about playing him is playing through his muck-ups, really, and, uh, him still having a conscience, as kind of questionable as that is. But, yeah, the tone of the show, I think, is - is something that makes the whole process just so enjoyable, because you can have a laugh as well and not take it too seriously and, uh - and you're always surprised by the script that's on your - on your table. It's like being in a different show every week. (Mimes looking at script) You're like, okay, where are we going this week? And it's always something different. At first, you might go, 'Oh, no!' (Slaps hands over eyes) And then you get around to it and you're like, this is really fun. So, uh, so, yeah, it's a - all of those things."

I'm not sure there is room for more people to join The Legends but if would be cool for Alex, Nia or Brainy to make guest appearances.

I don't think its unusual for tv shows to have that much deleted scenes its just that often some of them still aren't included on the blu-ray for whatever reason. I can recall someone from another show talking about a deleted scene that never ended up being on the blu-ray for that show.

U.S. TV Production In Vancouver Largely On Pause Over COVID-19 Test Results Delays
By Nellie Andreeva    September 29, 2020
https://deadline.com/2020/09/production-in-vancouver-on-pause-ovid-19-test-results-delays-1234588472/ 

Quote

EXCLUSIVE: A month after U.S. series began to resume production in Vancouver with COVID-19 protocols amid the pandemic, most of them have suspended filming. Like was the case when restart of production was delayed in August, the issue has to do with testing.

I hear a slew of series from multiple studios, including Riverdale, A Million Little Things, Charmed, Batwoman, The Mighty Ducks, Nancy Drew and Maid, have been idle for several days now or are in the process of shutting down because of delays of as much as 72+ hours in receiving COVID-19 test results for their casts and crew. Shows that had been scheduled to start this week, including The Flash, Supergirl and DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow, have been pushed. I hear a local lab did not meet deadlines, leaving productions in the dark. There is no indication that there are any positive cases but, without definitive PCR test results and no rapid testing available, studios have had no choice but to halt production. I hear the suspension of filming is done day by day and still ongoing. Additionally, I’m getting accounts of possible test shortages, which would compound the problem. “It’s a mess,” multiple industry insiders said of the situation.
