Critic Reviews for Chapter 7

The exposition parts don't really explain much you couldn't have guessed from the previous episode and reading an article on Nerdist or something, and a lot of the rest is just incredibly abstract.

After last week's meandering trudge through a warped reality, the plot kicks properly back into gear as the show races into the home straight.

In the astral plane, plenty of people can hear you scream, as it turns out. But they can also see you trade on the ideas and images of others at the expense of creating your own.

After last week's disappointing episode, Legion is back on track in a big way.

It's a clever homage that doesn't come across as an homage until you start thinking about it.

Some impressive sequences and gorgeous eye candy, but it still continued Legion's trend of setting up more than it pays off.

If you're looking for a good example of how to convey a significant amount of exposition in the most engrossing, and charming, way possible - and, who knows, maybe you are - you could do far worse than this week's episode of Legion.

After a season of intricately threaded loose ends and crafted visual textures, Legion's first episode of a two part climax pulls out all the stops as it heads towards closure.

Mar 24, 2017 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

It's a testament to the world that the series has crafted in just a short amount of time that it never really feels jarring or out of place when the world of David Haller inevitably turns sideways.

It's difficult to say whether "Chapter 7," the latest episode of FX and Marvel's addictive TV collaboration Legion, is singlehandedly the best episode of superhero television this year because it's great or because it's satisfying.

"Chapter 7" has to devote a lot of time to exposition... Fortunately, it's happening Legion-style... that it never feels like the story is grinding to a halt so that the characters can explain things to each other, and to us.

This episode works best, exposition included, when focusing on David.
