Legendary: Season 1 (2020)




Critic Consensus: With host Dashaun Wesley's charms, talented houses, and seemingly endless joy, Legendary is a ballroom extravaganza for die-hards and newcomers alike.

The show nails the mix of personal backstories and barn-burning performances, and the teams are insanely charismatic.

Legendary is a profoundly fun show, and despite all the drama and eliminations, it's still great to see Black and Latinx entertainers win prizes and succeed on a national stage.

Individual backstories, shared from an empty industrial space before the camera cuts to performers on the dimly lit dance floor, come across as perfunctory, lacking the depth that makes you want to root for someone you get to know on TV.

When Legendary gets into the competition gig, it slays. The performances in the first episode are, well, legendary.

Though the producers clearly try to set it up as a dance competition, this show is far from it. A combination of fashion and death-defying stunts, Legendary serves us a product that feels unlike any other project on television.
