Critic Consensus: Equal parts innovative and absurd, "Chapter 1" plunges the audience into a boldly creative universe that seems likely to warrant continued viewing.

Critic reviews for Chapter 1
Stevens is just awful, and the story overall is pretentious and falls short of the depth that Hawley and the X-Men franchise have previously proven themselves capable of.
Even with (maybe) 10 minutes of slack, this is one of the most interesting looking and unusual shows I've seen in awhile: quirky and threatening, unpredictable and beautifully crafted.
It's crazy to think a show like Legion is even on TV at all, luckily, the show itself is even crazier.
