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.
Legion: Season 1, Episode 7 review
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.
Legion: Season 1, Episode 6 review
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.
Legion: Season 1, Episode 5 review
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.
Legion: Season 1, Episode 4 review
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.
Legion: Season 1, Episode 3 review
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.
Legion: Season 1, Episode 2 review
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: Season 1, Episode 1 review
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.
