We're now at the third last episode of the total mind-f-ck that is Legion. We learn more about the elusive Lenny and his/her background, as well as his/her motivations.
Much like the previous episode, some questions answered... more come to the surface. We're over the halfway mark of the season now, and everything's starting to heat up.
Probably one of the best episodes so far. A lot of progress with both narrative and characters here. Stunning shots, new characters, and even more questions.
Episode 3, like episode 2, relies heavily on character development and psychological drama. Little is brought forward in terms of plot, but we are given a bit more of David's disturbing childhood.
The stage is set (kind of) and the characters are pretty much established (umm no). From episode 2, Legion is proving more and more to be a beautifully cryptic puzzle that's going to leave you scratching your head, but generally wowed.
Legion is a new FX series that premiered last week and has met with some interesting praise. From executive producer Noah Hawley (Fargo) and veteran X-men director Bryan Singer, there’s an eclectic crew behind this one that’s going to stand it out from all these other sci-fi series. Legion provides an alternative and slightly more insane perspective of the X-men universe; a perspective from inside the padded walls of a mental institution.
The Festival of Short Films in Prague has brought us some QUALITY screenings this year – a more than decent selection of fascinating films spanning a multitude of different genres and cultures. But one of the highlights was the wonderfully dark and original Likely Stories by the twisted king of contemporary literature, Neil Gaiman. Four short stories oozing with sick and supernatural tales, each one as engaging and rewarding as the next.
