Every shot looks like art.

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.

Legion isn't perfect, but it shows a hell of a lot of promise

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.

Legion isn't a superhero show anyway, but it does have the potential to be the most unique and perhaps even the best comic-book based TV series to come around in quite some time.
