An original and refreshing take on the X-men genre, and honestly, exactly what the franchise needed. Unfortunately though, the build-up was much more satisfying than the finale.
We’re nearing the end of Season 1, and this penultimate episode answers a lot of questions and promises the intense and wonderfully chaotic finale that we’ve been waiting for.
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.
A strong start that does somewhat ‘reinvent’ the standard superhero genre film, but then falls victim to silly Hollywood cliches, just in case they want to do a spin-off or sequel in the near future. We were promised that it’d be different, gritty and more human, and it is …for the first half.
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.
