It is a show about time travel, suspend disbelief. It's also not as good as the other TV shows in the same shared universe like Flash, Arrow and Supergirl.  

In the "Timm'averse" cartoon version of Vandal Savage in Justice League, besides the better back story(he's a meteor radiation modified cromag), they had one where future Vandal Savage sent a laptop back to the 1940's with weapon plans to help the Nazi's win WWII after Vandal bumped off Hitler.   So Thinkpad in WWII, way better Vandal Savage story than a C64 in the 70's.  Hey just thinking didn't Doctor Who save Hitler from being bumped off by  River Song. 

Oh well I digress....
