News & Interviews for Legion: Season 1
Even if you barely understand a thing that's going on (and be patient; chances are you will), "Legion" is a joy to watch, surreal and beautiful, with as many funny asides as frightening moments.
Its embrace of interiority and the cerebral along with its considerable visual achievements takes us on a wild ride like nothing else on TV.
What Legion has that so many superhero TV shows lack (sorry, Gotham fans) is a commitment to performance and character that transcends genre.
Wow. With its opening montage of a troubled child growing into a disturbed man, the FX series Legion states its intention of blowing your mind with its visual mastery and challenging your ability to keep up with the tricky narrative.
The fantasy that fuels so many stories, from The Ugly Duckling to Harry Potter, is that misfits are literally mis-fit and that their strengths can be appreciated only when they're with their own. Legion feeds that fantasy and challenges it.
