This show is gold! Sure, it may get a bit messy at times with all the time travel, but they have fun with it, unlike most other shows, like Arrow or Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. It also has great actors, like Caity Lotz (aka my Queen), Dominic Purcell (from Prison Break), Brandon Routh (Superman? Hello?! ), and several more great people! It's action-packed, hilarious, and just an all-around great show!
