      Also how did Kadabra get to the past in the first place, how did his machine get damaged or wrecked thus forcing him to steal the tech and kill anyone in his way? Plot Hole City.

    Kadabra did not strike me as well visualized. There was nothing that made him distinctive (other than he could do anything the plot demanded of him). The explanation that future tech would appear like magic to us 21st Century beings was....weak.

That was kind of the silver age origin though. I think even down to Caitlin's speech about magic being indistinguishable from advanced science or whatever. He's not a real sorcerer he just uses fancy tech we 21st century dummies see as magic. He does like the theatrics that go with being a magician though.

    Might have been nice if he had a magician's cape, or wand, or tophat...or anything that made him stand out from the crowd really.

I think they went douchey Chris Angel magician vibe rather than the classic style.
