Topic: Legion

https://fanart.tv/fanart/tv/320724/tvbanner/legion-5876f3c6367ab.jpg

Legion introduces the story of David Haller: Since he was a teenager, David has struggled with mental illness. Diagnosed as schizophrenic, David has been in and out of psychiatric hospitals for years. But after a strange encounter with a fellow patient, he's confronted with the possibility that the voices he hears and the visions he sees might be real. He's based on the Marvel comics character Legion, the son of X-Men founder Charles Xavier (played by Patrick Stewart and James McAvoy in the films), first introduced in 1985.

I just started watching this and was surprised not to see a topic about it here in the forums. I've seen a lot; watched tons of movies and television shows in my short lifetime, but man I haven't seen anything quite like this before. This show is visually spectacular, super creepy, absolutely mind-blowing, and very, very weird. I suppose this kind of craziness doesn't appeal to everyone, but I love it. I feel like I'm watching someone's LSD-induced hallucination where time isn't linear and reality bends into the craziest of shapes and forms lol. It's confusing, messy, wild, colorful and absolutely awesome. This show manages to keep me on the edge of my seat even when there's nothing happening. And when there is something going on, most of the time it doesn't really make any sense, but somehow that's not a bad thing. I've found that the best way to approach Legion is by not trying to make sense of it because there rarely is any. My approach is simple - just sit back, relax and watch the insane spectacle unfold with wide-eyed wonder. I'm only three episodes in and I'm already sold. big_smile

Re: Legion

Agree, as do a lot of others because it was renewed.

Re: Legion

It may seem kind of confusing and strange but it comes together very well at the end.

Re: Legion

2 thumbs up!

Re: Legion

Yeah it did come together real well towards the end, superb from beginning to end. 5 stars in my book! The second season can't get here soon enough for me, and I'm also looking forward to finally seeing Amahl Farouk, who willl be played by Saïd Taghmaoui. FX describes Farouk as "a villain with a thousand faces…" They also confirmed that season two will premiere sometime in early 2018; this time with a 10-episode order. As for David's biological father, here's an interesting take from the showrunners on Den of Geek...

As for the big question about David's biological father, well, "I think that’s something we’re definitely going to approach,” Hawley said. “It’s a creative conversation, but it’s also a sort of corporate conversation, you know, on some level, in terms of the movie studio and their relationship to the X-Men and the characters they want in the movies and want to protect potentially. And were we to want to have Professor X on the show, or even Patrick Stewart on the show, James McAvoy or one of those actors, is a conversation both with the actor and with the studio. So, I don’t know, I haven’t really dived into that quandary yet, but certainly I need to start thinking about it.”

Re: Legion

Hmm, somehow I never posted in this thread... cool What a great show! So many weird ideas. smile Love the retro look too.

I'm a bit behind and took a break after season 2. A bit too much drama for my taste. I finally started to watch season 3 this week. Damn, the first 16 minutes of 3x1! A piece of art! yikes

Re: Legion

It is a strange one.  Overall a good show.

DRM "manages access" in the same way that Prison "manages freedom".
