Like your superhero shows about speedy meta-humans and seuper-serious archers, but find that they just aren't time-travelly enough for your liking? Well you may already have seen The Flash and Arrow spin-off show DC's Legends Of Tomorrow, but if not - or if you just want to see it all again (and who can blame you) - you're in luck! The entire first season is now available on demand. 

Before you dive in though, get to know the whole gang with our handy guide below. We're sure you'll spot a few familiar faces in there too...
